The St. Louis Rams kickoff the 2013 season at home
Sunday as they host the Arizona Cardinals at the Edward
Jones Dome.
Sunday’s game will mark the 12th time the Rams and
Cardinals have faced each other in Week 1. The Rams
have won seven of those match ups, while Arizona
took the last Kickoff Weekend contest between the two
teams. That came in 2010 when the Cardinals beat the
Rams 17-13 in Week 1.
The Rams won both of last year’s meetings with the
Cardinals to give St. Louis a 35-33-2 upper hand in the
all-time series.
QB Sam Bradford

Since moving to St. Louis in 1995, the Rams are 6-4 when
playing at home in Week 1. The Rams opened on the road last year but won their home
opener in Week 2 when they defeated the Washington Redskins.

KICKOFF WEEKEND 2013
A GREAT START

THE DUTCHMAN GOES WILD

Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher has had his
share of success in Week 1. Fisher boasts
a 10-7 career record on Kickoff Weekend,
which makes him one of just four current
NFL head coaches who have won 10 or
more games in Week 1.
The Rams won their home opener a year
ago when they overcame a 15-point
deficit to defeat the Washington Redskins.
On Sunday, the Rams open at home for
the first time under Fisher. In his first
season with the team, St. Louis traveled to
Detroit in Week 1.

Opening day of the 1951 season brought
one of the most prolific performances in
Rams and NFL history.

REMEMBERING A LEGEND
The Rams lost a true legend and very special member of their family when Hall of
Famer DE Deacon Jones passed away in
June. The Rams will honor Jones throughout the season by wearing a decal on the
back of their helmets that features the
Hall of Famer’s number.

Rams QB Norm “The Dutchman” Van
Brocklin entered that season entrenched
in a duel for the starting position with
veteran Bob Waterfield. A Waterfield
injury sidelined the incumbent quarterback prior to the season opener against
the New York Yanks on September 28,
and opened the door for Van Brocklin to
show his worth. He took advantage of the
opportunity in grand fashion.

Norm Van Brocklin

Van Brocklin threw for an NFL-record 554 yards in a 54-14 rout of the
Yanks at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback tossed five touchdowns and completed 27 of 41 passes.
“It’s the finest exhibition of passing I’ve ever seen,” said Rams Coach
Jimmy Phelan after the game. “Van Brocklin was hitting them in the eye
practically every time he threw the ball.”
Van Brocklin, who passed away at the age of 57 in 1983, remained subdued about the performance. “Everything I threw seemed to be caught
and run for a long gain,” he said.
The Rams’ Tom Fears averaged 23.1 yards on his seven catches and Elroy
“Crazylegs” Hirsch averaged 19.2 yards on nine receptions. Los Angeles
amassed an NFL-record 735 total yards and 34 first downs.
Van Brocklin’s record has stood for the past 62 years. Former Houston
Oilers QB Warren Moon and Texans QB Matt Schaub came the closest to
breaking Van Brocklin’s mark. Moon passed for 527 yards during a 1990
contest, while Schaub reached the same number last year against the
Jaguars.

In addition, several members of the Jones
family will be in attendance at Sunday’s
game against the Cardinals and will be
recognized.
Hall of Famer Deacon Jones

Jones, who coined the term “sack the
quarterback,” played for the Rams from
1961-71. He was nicknamed the Secretary
of Defense and was widely considered
as one of the greatest defensive players
to play the game. The NFL announced
this spring that starting this season, the
league will honor the NFL’s sack leader
with the Deacon Jones Award each year.

TOUGH ROAD
Turn on the TV or radio this spring and you’ll hear NFL pundits discussing
the resurgence of the NFC West, which is widely regarded as the NFL’s
strongest division heading into the 2013 season.

Above is a photo of the decal the
Rams will wear this season to honor
Deacon Jones.

While sacks didn’t become an official
record until 1982, unofficial accounts of Jones’ totals show that few players in NFL history attacked opposing quarterback with his vigor. Jones
recorded a team-best 159.5 sacks with the Rams and 173.5 for his career.
He registered 26 sacks during the 1967 season and added six more during the postseason. He had 24 sacks in 1968 and reached double-digit
sack totals seven times, including three 20-sack seasons. Jones was
elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980.

That thought is reflected in the Rams’ strength of schedule. Going into
the season, St. Louis’ slate is tied for the second toughest in the NFL,
according to how their 2013 opponents fared last season. The Rams play
seven games against teams that made the playoffs in 2012, which is tied
for most in the NFL.

HE’S A WINNER

LES IS MORE
In June, ESPN’s NFL insiders ranked each franchise according to the
confidence the group
has in what each team’s
roster will potentially
look like in three years.
In doing so, the panel
tabbed the Rams eighth
among 32 franchises.

seasons on the job: build
the Rams’ roster and set the club on a path for sustained success in the
near and immediate future as well as the long term.

In his first season as Rams head coach,
Jeff Fisher helped the team to a 5.5 game
improvement despite having the NFL’s
youngest roster.
Fisher is among the winningest head
coaches of his era. Among active coaches,
Fisher is tied for third in career wins.
Early last season, Fisher passed Hall of
Famer Marv Levy for 18th on the NFL’s
all-time wins list for the regular season. In
Week 2, Fisher’s first victory as Rams head
coach allowed him to tie Levy on the alltime list at 143.

A PLAYER’S COACH
Throughout his career, Fisher
has been lauded for his ability
to relate to players and get the
most out of them. That keen skill
set is due in large part to Fisher’s
personal experience. He enjoyed
a five-year playing career with
the Chicago Bears as a defensive
back and punt returner.

Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher spent five years as a
safety and returner with the Chicago Bears.

Fisher is one of eight current NFL
head coaches who also played in
the league. Of those eight, three
were teammates at one time with
the Bears: Fisher, Ron Rivera and
Leslie Frazier.

Shortly after his arrival in St. Louis, Snead directed a trade that sent the
second overall pick in the 2012 draft to the Redskins in exchange for the
sixth and 39th picks in 2012 as well as Washington’s first round picks in
both 2013 and 2014.
With multiple picks at their disposal, the Rams have been able to move
up and down the draft board each of the last two years to add a plethora
of young talent to the organization.
Two of Snead’s top three picks in the 2012 draft, DT Michael Brockers and
CB Janoris Jenkins, were named to Pro Football Weekly’s All-Rookie Team
and played key roles on one of the NFL’s most improved defenses. The
Rams also received significant contributions from 2012 draft picks CB
Trumaine Johnson (third round), WR Chris Givens (fourth) and K Greg Zuerlein (sixth), and WR Brian Quick (second) and RB Isaiah Pead (second)
are expected to take on much bigger roles in their second seasons.
In free agency, Snead’s first class yielded CB Cortland Finnegan, DT
Kendall Langford and C Scott Wells, all of whom were full-time starters in
2012.
This spring, the Rams added two marquee veteran free agents in T Jake
Long, a four-time Pro Bowler, and TE Jared Cook, who is expected to have
a significant role in the team’s offense. Equally as important, Snead and
his staff were able to resign DE William Hayes, who had a career year in
2012 with 7.0 sacks and was a key cog in the team’s front seven.

2013 RAMS DRAFT CLASS
The Rams made seven selections in April’s draft and were extremely active as they moved around the board to execute their plan. Of their seven
picks, only two were executed in the team’s original slots. The other five
came following trades. Here’s a look at the team’s 2013 draft class.
WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia (Rd. 1, pick 8) - The Rams moved up from
the 16th spot to take the speedy Austin, who caught 215 passes in his final
two collegiate seasons.
LB Alec Ogletree, Georgia (Rd. 1, pick 30) - St. Louis moved back from 22
and landed the versatile Ogletree, an All-SEC performer who led the Bulldogs
in tackles last season.
S T.J. McDonald, USC (Rd. 3, pick 71) - All-Pac 12 selection is likely to contribute in St. Louis secondary from Day 1.
WR Stedman Bailey, West Virginia (Rd. 3, pick 92) - Recorded 1,622
receiving yards with 25 touchdowns as a senior at West Virginia.
OL Barrett Jones, Alabama (Rd. 4, pick 113) - All-American won Rimington and Outland Awards during highly-decorated collegiate career.
CB Brandon McGee, Miami (Rd. 5, pick 149) - Speedy DB was a team
captain and will vie for playing time as Rams’ fourth cornerback.
RB Zac Stacy, Vanderbilt (Rd. 5, pick 160) - Rams traded two picks to
move back into the fifth round and select Vandy’s all-time leading rusher.

RATINGS ARE UP

FINISHING STRONG

Statistically speaking, QB Sam Bradford enjoyed the best season
of his young career in 2012. Bradford set new career highs in passing
yards (3,702), touchdown passes (21) and passer rating (82.5). His 377yard performance in Week 15 against Minnesota set a new
single-game career high.
Three of Bradford’s six best games, in terms of passer rating, came
last season. His 106.2 passer rating at Arizona in Week 12 is the
fifth highest single-game mark of his career. In the Rams’ win over
Washington in Week 2, he posted a career-high 117.6 passer rating. His
105.1 performance in Week 1 was, at the time, his fourth highest rating
of his career and is now his sixth.
Here’s a look at Bradford’s six best single-game performances in terms
of passer rating:

While QB Sam Bradford posted career
highs in every major passing category
last season, he was able to reach those
numbers thanks in large part to a strong
second half of the season.
As a team, the Rams were 4-3-1 in their
final eight games, and Bradford was
among league leaders in completions
(8th, 175); touchdown passes (t-9th, 13);
and first downs (t-7th, 102) over that
time period.
Bradford was particularly impressive in
the red zone over the team’s final eight
games. He was third in red zone completion percentage (66.7); fifth in yards per QB Sam Bradford
attempt (4.43); eighth in red zone passer
rating (101.8); and tied for eighth in touchdown passes (9).

CHANGING OF THE GUARD
One of the biggest stories surrounding the Rams this offseason centered
around the changing faces on offense.
While St. Louis is projected to return
all but three starters on defense from
their 2012 squad, the Rams will likely
have seven changes to the starting
lineup on offense.
Those changes include three changes
on the offensive line, as four-time Pro
Bowler Jake Long signed to play left
tackle with Rodger Saffold moving
to the right side. Chris Williams and
Shelley Smith rotated at left guard
late last season and during offseason
practices.

QB Sam Bradford set new career highs in several categories last season.

CLUTCH WHEN IT COUNTS
QB Sam Bradford had a hot hand late
in games throughout the 2012 season.
Bradford was among the NFL’s best
quarterbacks late in games this season.
Of Bradford’s 21 touchdown passes last
season, nine came in the final quarter.
He finished sixth in the NFL in fourth
quarter completions (99), ninth in yards
(1,085) and tied for third in the league
in touchdown passes in the final frame.
Bradford’s fourth quarter efficiency
showed throughout the stat column.
His 58 first downs in the fourth quarter QB Sam Bradford
were eighth most in the NFL, and Bradford was sacked just six times in
the fourth quarter. Among starting quarterbacks who played in 16 games,
only three took fewer sacks in the final quarter of games.
The Rams’ Week 14 win in Buffalo marked the fifth time in 2012 that
Bradford drove the Rams to a fourth quarter lead. Of those five games, St.
Louis won three and tied another.

TE Jared Cook

The skill positions will each have new looks in 2013. TE Jared Cook was
a marquee free agent signing and will team with Lance Kendricks at the
position. Third-year pro Austin Pettis is now the longest tenured of the
wide receiver rotation that includes second-year players Chris Givens and
Brian Quick as well as rookies Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.
At running back, 2012 draft picks Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead lead
a group that includes rookies Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham as well
as Chase Reynolds, who spent the last two years on the Rams’ practice
squad and will likely have a role on special teams.

ON THE RUN
RB Daryl Richardson hopes to build on a
strong rookie year, and he’ll likely enjoy
an expanded role in 2013 while doing so.
As a rookie, Richardson rushed for 475
yards on 98 carries. His 4.8-yard average
was tied for eighth best in the NFL last
season and was tied for sixth best among
running backs.
Richardson served as the team’s primary
backup to Steven Jackson last season,
but with Jackson’s departure, Richardson
will see more action in his second season.
He’ll join fellow 2012 draft pick Isaiah
Pead as well as 2013 fifth-round pick Zac
Stacy, rookie Benny Cunningham and
first-year pro Chase Reynolds in the St.
Louis backfield.

RB Daryl Richardson

GIVENS’ GRABS

WELCOME ABOARD

In the NFL, speed kills. As a rookie, Rams
WR Chris Givens proved what a valuable
weapon his legs can be.

The Rams traded up eight spots in April’s draft
to select West Virginia WR Tavon Austin, who
is expected to play a key role in the St. Louis
offense this season.

With five receptions of 50 yards or more,
Givens led the NFL in the category last
season.
He posted a career-high 11 receptions
in the team’s Week 13 win over San
Francisco. His 92-yard effort came a week
after he recorded his first 100-yard game
of his career, a performance that included an acrobatic 37-yard touchdown
catch. Givens totaled five catches for 115
yards in the win over the Cardinals.

During his All-American career with the
Mountaineers, Austin was a jack of all trades.
As a senior, Austin was second among all
FCS players in total yards with 2,910. Those
totals included 1,289 receiving yards, which
was 11th in the country, and 643 rushing
yards. Austin caught 12 touchdown passes
and scored five more on the ground. He WR Tavon Austin
also handled kickoff and punt return duties
throughout his collegiate career and could do the same in St. Louis.
WR Chris Givens

During a five-week stretch early in the season, Givens became the only
rookie in NFL history to catch a pass of 50 yards or more in five straight
games. That stretch started in Week 4 against Seattle. He’s one of just two
players in the Super Bowl era to record a 50-yard catch in five straight
games, joining Detroit’s Pat Studstill, who did so in 1966.
Givens, who was the 14th receiver selected in last April’s draft, ranked
fourth among NFL rookies with 698 receiving yards this season.

WHAT’S COOK-IN’?
When Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher was in
Tennessee, he thought so highly of Jared
Cook that he traded a future second-round
draft pick in order to move up and select the
South Carolina tight end in the third round.

Austin caught 114 passes as a senior. That number tied him for second
most in the FCS. His West Virginia teammate Stedman Bailey, who ironically the Rams selected in the third round, also had 114 receptions last
season.
When the Rams selected Austin, it marked the first time the team had
taken a wide receiver in the first round since the team took Torry Holt
sixth overall in 1999.

AUSTIN POWERS
When asked this spring about WR Austin
Pettis, Rams Offensive Coordinator Brian
Schottenheimer said that the third-year pro
had the most impressive offseason of any
Rams offensive player.
Although he’s entering just his third NFL season, Pettis is now the longest tenured Rams
wide receiver. He caught 30 passes for 261
yards and four touchdowns.
Pettis is looking forward to picking up where
he left off in 2012. Of his 30 receptions last WR Austin Pettis
season, more than half (16) came in the final
month of the season. Two of his four touchdowns also came in December.
Pettis also handled punt return duties for St. Louis last year, and his ability to play multiple positions on offense will likely be an asset to the 2013
Rams.

STED-Y AS HE GOES
When Fisher had a chance to reunite with
Cook this spring, he once again acted swiftly.
Cook, along with T Jake Long and the resigning of DE William Hayes, was one of three big
moves the Rams made during free agency,
and the speedy pass catcher is expected to
be heavily involved in the St. Louis offense
in 2013.

Rams WR Stedman Bailey had one of the
most impressive seasons in college football
history last fall as he caught 114 passes for
1,622 yards and 25 touchdowns.

TE Jared Cook

At 6-5, 248 pounds, Cook gives QB Sam Bradford a big, athletic target. In
four seasons, Cook has 131 receptions for 1,717 yards and eight touchdowns. With the Rams’ youth at the skill positions, Cook’s numbers in
each category represent the most among current Rams.

Bailey, who was drafted by the Rams in the
third round last April, led all FCS receivers in touchdowns, finished second in yards
and tied with Mountaineers and Rams teammate Tavon Austin for second in the nation
in receptions. Bailey earned All-American
Honors for his efforts last season. He was one
of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award,
which goes to the top wide receiver in the
country.

WR Stedman Bailey

Since the Rams moved to St. Louis in 1995, they’ve selected two players
at the same position from the same school twice in the same draft: Bailey
and Austin this year and Florida State LBs Tommy Polley and Brian Allen
in 2001.

FRONT AND CENTER

KENDRICKS CONTRIBUTES

The Rams’ offensive line will have a significantly different look this season, but the
group hopes that they’re able to carry over
their late season success from 2012 into the
new year.

TE Lance Kendricks took a big step forward in
his second season and gave the Rams a boost
on offense.
Kendricks finished the year with 42 receptions
for 519 yards and four touchdowns last season. His 519 receiving yards were the most by
a Rams tight end since the team moved to St.
Louis in 1995.

QB Sam Bradford was not sacked in the final
nine quarters of the 2012 campaign. As a
team, the Rams allowed 35 sacks last season
after giving up 55 in 2011.
C Scott Wells and RG Harvey Dahl will be the C Scott Wells
only 2012 opening day starters that begin the
2013 season in the same spot. The Rams signed four-time Pro Bowler
Jake Long to play left tackle, meaning that Rodger Saffold will move to
the right side after spending his first three NFL seasons on the left.
At left guard, veteran Chris Williams is penciled in as the opening day
starter after winning a competition for the job. Williams was drafted by
the Bears in the first round in 2008 and signed with St. Louis midway
through the 2012 campaign.

LONG ON TALENT
The Rams didn’t make a ton of moves in free
agency this spring, but the ones they did figure to make significant impacts.

In Week 16 at Tampa, Kendricks enjoyed his
first 100-yard performance of his career, which
was just the 11th 100-yard game by a tight TE Lance Kendricks
end in Rams history. He caught four passes for
119 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown pass.
In Week 6, Kendricks tied a career high with four receptions. In the team’s
Week 5 victory over the Cardinals, he punctuated St. Louis’ opening drive
with a seven-yard scoring grab, his first touchdown of his NFL career.
Kendricks’ catch capped a 69-yard drive that gave the Rams a lead right
out of the gate in a game in which St. Louis never trailed.
When asked late in the season about Kendricks’ performance in 2012,
Coach Jeff Fisher pointed out that Kendricks never leaves the field and
that the former Wisconsin Badger doesn’t receive enough recognition for
the job he does in the run game.

JOHNNY ON THE SPOT
Just like his special teams mate Greg
Zuerlein, P Johnny Hekker had a strong
rookie season.

Early in the free agency period, the Rams
signed T Jake Long to anchor the left tackle
position. Long, who was the top overall
choice in the 2008 NFL Draft, went to the Pro
Bowl in each of his first four seasons and is
regarded as one of the game’s top players at
his position.

Hekker finished his first NFL campaign with
a 45.8-yard gross average and a net average
of 39.9 yards per attempt. Both of those
numbers are the fourth best for a season in
Rams history.
T Jake Long

Immediately after the Dolphins selected
Long, the Rams took DE Chris Long (no relation) with the second
pick. The Rams are the first team since the 1991 Colts to have the
top two players from the same draft on their roster at the same time.
Indianapolis had the top two picks in 1991 and used them on DE Steve
Emtman and OLB Quentin Coryatt.

In Week 5 against Arizona, Hekker averaged
56.9 yards per punt to set a Rams singlegame record. He also turned in an impressive net average of 46.0 on seven punts,
including a 68-yarder. He was named NFC
Special Teams Player of the Week for the
performance.

The first of Long’s four Pro Bowls came as a rookie. He’s one of just five
rookies since the AFL/NFL merger to make the Pro Bowl the year that
they were the top overall picks. When Long accomplished the feat, he
was the first to do so in 27 seasons.

In addition to putting his leg to good use, the Rams benefited from
Hekker’s arm. He completed three passes on fakes last season, and in
Week 4, Hekker tossed a two-yard touchdown pass to Danny Amendola
on a fake field goal attempt.

K Greg Zuerlein was twice named NFC Special

in which he kicked field goals of 53 and 54
yards to tie and then defeat the San Francisco
49ers. Zuerlein was also honored after kicking
four field goals in a Week 4 win over Seattle,
including a team-record 60-yard field goal.
P Johnny Hekker was recognized after Week 5
when he averaged 56.9 yards per punt to set
a Rams single-game record.

CB Janoris Jenkins

CB Janoris Jenkins was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week after
he returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the team’s Week 12
win over Arizona.

LONG ON TALENT II
Whether he’s sacking the quarterback or
chasing him down, Rams DE Chris Long
continues to make an impact in St. Louis’
pass defense.
Long finished the 2012 campaign with 11.5
sacks, his second straight year in double
digits in the category. Long tied for ninth in
the NFL in sacks last season.
He finished the season with a bang as he
dropped Seattle QB Russell Wilson three
times in Week 17.
Even when Long isn’t recording sacks, his
DE Chris Long
pass-rushing presence was certainly felt
throughout the year. He led the Rams with 50 QB pressures and 24 QB
hits on the season.
Late in the second quarter of the team’s Week 2 win, Long hurried
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and forced an errant pass that was intercepted by Cortland Finnegan. The Rams turned the takeaway into three
points. For Long, the play represents one example of his ability to change
games without recording sacks.

MAN IN THE MIDDLE
If you want to find Rams MLB James Laurinaitis on the football field, one
can often simply follow the ball because the now fifth-year pro seems to
always be around it.
Laurinaitis once again led the Rams in tackles last season with 174 and has
reached the 100-tackle mark in each of his four NFL seasons.
Laurinaitis has proven to be a valuable defender against both the run and
the pass. He recorded eight passes defensed last season and two interceptions, giving him seven INTs for his career. He also has 8.5 sacks for his
career. Laurinaitis is the only NFC player with 8.5+ sacks and 7+ INTs since
2009, his rookie season.
Laurinaitis, due in part to his ability to play the run and pass at a high level,
rarely comes off the field. He was on the field for all of the Rams’ defensive
snaps during the 2012 season.
A day before the 2012 opener, Laurinaitis signed a new five-year contract
with the Rams. After the deal was finished, Rams COO Kevin Demoff said of
Laurinaitis, “I think there is no player who embodies what we want on and
off the field more than James Laurinaitis.”

The former second-overall pick had a breakout season in 2011. Long finished the year with 13.0 sacks, which ranked seventh in the NFL.
Last July, the Rams rewarded Long with a new four-year contract that
will keep him in place as a centerpiece for the defense for years to come.

RUSHING ROBERT
Leading up to the 2012 season, several of
Robert Quinn’s teammates said that they
expected big things of their starting right
end as he entered his second NFL season.

Linebacker James Laurinaitis was the Rams’ leading tackler once again last season. He’s now
recorded four consecutive 100-tackle seasons.

YOUNG GUNS

Quinn delivered on those expectations.
With a sack in Week 17, the former firstround pick finished the year with 10.5
sacks, his first season in double digits in
the category.
In addition, Quinn ranked second among
Rams in quarterback pressures this season
(25) and was also second in quarterback
hits (17).

When teams trimmed their rosters to
53 men last Saturday, the Rams had the
youngest in the NFL. The 53 players on the
Rams’ initial roster had an average age of
24.98 years.
DE Robert Quinn

Quinn was the 14th overall player selected in the 2011 NFL Draft, and it’s
a class that has produced strongly when it comes to pass rushers. Fellow
2011 class members J.J. Watt and Aldon Smith finished the year ranked
first and second, respectively, in the NFL lead in sacks, and then secondyear pro Von Miller ranked third in the category.
Chris Long and Quinn became the first pair of Rams to reach double digits
in sacks in the same season since Kevin Carter and Grant Wistrom did so in
2000. Long and Quinn made the Rams one of just five teams this season
to have two players with at least 10 sacks. The others were Dallas (Ware
& Spencer), Denver (Miller & Dumervil), Carolina (Hardy & Johnson) and
Cincinnati (Atkins & Johnson).

The St. Louis roster included 28 players
who are in their second year or younger,
including 12 rookies, two first-year players and 14 second-year pros. All seven of
the Rams’ 2013 draft picks made the roster, and five undrafted rookie free agents
were part of the initial 53. Last season, 18
different rookies saw game action for the
Rams.

LB Alec Ogletree

St. Louis boasts just five players over the age of 30, with 12th-year pro Will
Witherspoon as the veteran of the group at 33 years old. First-round pick
Alec Ogletree is the youngest Ram. He’ll turn 22 on Sept. 25. DT Michael
Brockers, the team’s first-round pick in 2012, is just 22 years old, as are
2013 draft picks WR Tavon Austin, S T.J. McDonald, WR Stedman Bailey
and RB Zac Stacy.

CORT IS IN SESSION
When free agency began early last
March, the Rams quickly moved to
land their top target. That man was CB
Cortland Finnegan, and you’d be hard
pressed to find an offseason acquisition
across the NFL had as big an impact in
2012 as Finnegan.
Finnegan recorded an interception in
each of his first three games with St.
Louis. In Week 1, he returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown. In
Week 2, his pick set up a late first half
field goal.
Finnegan played for Rams Head Coach CB Cortland Finnegan
Jeff Fisher for five seasons in Tennessee,
where the Samford product developed a reputation as a feisty, aggressive
playmaker.
In addition to providing a boost with his play, Finnegan’s leadership was
key in the Rams locker room. He willingly accepted a mentor role in a
secondary that included rookies Janoris Jenkins, Trumaine Johnson and
Rodney McLeod.
Finnegan has been a model of consistency throughout his career. In
Weeks 16 &17 last season, he played in nickel situations despite a nagging
thigh injury that kept him out of practice all week. When he came off the
bench in Week 16, it broke a streak of 56 consecutive starts, which was the
second-longest active streak among NFL cornerbacks.

FIRST CLASS
The Rams boasted the NFL’s youngest roster in 2012, but they received strong contributions from a variety of rookies, which
has St. Louis excited about its future.
- 1st round pick DT Michael Brockers posted 4.0 sacks and played a key role in the
team’s steadily improving run defense.
He led all Rams defensive linemen with
63 tackles and was named to PFWA’s AllRookie Team.
- 2nd round pick WR Brian Quick caught
two touchdown passes and averaged 14.2
yards per reception.
- 2nd round pick CB Janoris Jenkins led RB Daryl Richardson
the NFL in defensive touchdowns with
four (3 interception returns, 1 fumble return) and led the team in passes
defensed. He was also named to PFWA’s All-Rookie Team.
- 2nd round pick RB Isaiah Pead finished the season with a strong performance in Seattle as he averaged 4.2 yards per carry.
- 3rd round pick CB Trumaine Johnson started the last two games of the
season and concluded the year with two interceptions and eight pass
breakups.

SACK ATTACK
Paced by 11.5 sacks from DE Chris
Long and 10.5 from DE Robert
Quinn, the Rams had success getting to the opposing quarterback
throughout the 2012 season.
St. Louis tied for the NFL lead
with 52 sacks as a team last year.
However, the Rams stood alone
atop the league in sacks per pass
play as they dropped the opposing
quarterback on 9.51 percent of pass
plays against them.

DE Chris Long

The last time the Cardinals and Rams faced each other at the Edward
Jones Dome, the St. Louis pass rush factored greatly into the decision. The
Rams recorded nine sacks as a team, which tied the franchise single-game
record since sacks became an official stat in 1982.
DE William Hayes, who re-signed with the Rams this spring, had a careerhigh 7.0 sacks in 2012 and was also a key player in the team’s pass
defense.

GREG THE LEG
Rams K Greg Zuerlein enjoyed an impressive rookie season that saw him set new
marks for rookie NFL kickers.
In the Rams’ Week 13 win over San
Francisco, Zuerlein kicked a 53-yard field
goal to tie the game as time expired in
regulation. Then he one-upped himself
with a 54-yard game-winner in overtime.
He was named NFC Special Teams Player of
the Week for the performance.
Zuerlein made seven field goals from
50 yards or more. In the win over San
K Greg Zuerlein
Francisco, he broke the franchise record for
50+ yard field goals in a season, and was just three off of the NFL singleseason record. That mark is owned by Vikings K Blair Walsh.
Zuerlein made his first 15 field goal attempts of his career and finished
the year 23-for-31 overall. Among Zuerlein’s accomplishments this season:

- 4th round pick WR Chris Givens led the team in receiving yards (698) and
had three touchdowns catches.

- With seven field goals of 50 yards or more, Zuerlein owns the team
record in the category and ranks second all-time among NFL rookies.

- 6th round pick K Greg Zuerlein set a new Rams record with seven field
goals from 50 yards or more.

- Kicked the longest field goal by a rookie in league history (60 yds.).

- 7th round pick Daryl Richardson averaged 4.8 yards per carry and was a
solid complement for Steven Jackson.
In addition, P Johnny Hekker was signed as a rookie free agent and turned
in one of the best seasons by a punter in team history with a 45.8 gross
average. Fellow undrafted rookie free agent S Rodney McLeod was the
team’s leading special teams tackler (16)

- Broke the franchise record for longest field goal (60 yds.) and owns
three of the four longest field goals in Rams history.
- In Week 4 became the first kicker in league history to kick a 50-plus and
60-plus yard field goal in the same game.
- He set a new franchise record for most consecutive field goals by a
rookie (15).

BROCKERS BRINGING IT
December can sometimes bring the “rookie
wall” that sees some players start to slow
down late in their first season. It was the opposite for Rams first-round pick Michael Brockers,
who earned All-Rookie honors from the Pro
Football Writers of America.
Brockers capped off a strong rookie season by
playing at a high level throughout the final
month. In Week 16, he recorded five tackles
and played a key role in the Rams limiting
Doug Martin to just 62 yards on 18 carries. DT Michael Brockers
In Week 14 at Buffalo, he had 1.5 sacks, his
second multi-sack game last season. Brockers finished the year with 4.0
sacks.
In Week 13, Brockers posted a career-high 11 tackles in the team’s win
over San Francisco. RB Frank Gore gained just 58 yards on 23 carries,
thanks in part to Brockers either shedding blockers or eating space.
Brockers, the team’s first-round pick in 2012, missed the first three games
after suffering an ankle injury in the preseason finale. However, he ended
the season with 63 tackles, most among all Rams defensive linemen. He
also had 13 QB pressures.

NFL HOTBED
CB Janoris Jenkins put together one of
the finest rookie seasons by a defender
in Rams history.
In Week 16, Jenkins returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown. It was
his third interception return for a score
last season, tying the NFL rookie record
in the category. He shares the record
with Hall of Famers Ronnie Lott and Lem
Barney.
Jenkins’ score against Tampa Bay was his
fourth of the season. He’s the only rookie
in team history to score four defensive
touchdowns, and he led the NFL in the
category in 2012.

CB Janoris Jenkins

In Week 12, Jenkins did something no other player had accomplished in
the 75-year history of the Rams: he intercepted two passes in Arizona and
returned both of them for touchdowns. He became just the fourth NFL
rookie and first since 1960 to accomplish the feat. Jenkins was named
NFC Defensive Player of the Week for the effort. Following the season,
Jenkins was named to the All-Rookie Team by the Pro Football Writers
of America.

PUSH ’EM BACK
According to StatsPass.com, the Rams
defense created 126 negative plays in 2012,
which was second most in the NFL in the
category.
St. Louis stopped its opponent for negative
gains on 73 run plays, and the team had 49
sacks for loss and four other pass plays that
went for loss.
The Rams tied for the NFL lead in sacks, and
solid play by the front seven allowed St.
DT Kendall Langford
Louis to stop opposing running backs in their
tracks on a regular basis. LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar led the team with 23 tackles for loss and also had 4.5 sacks to give him 27.5 negative plays on his
own. DE William Hayes had seven sacks and nine tackles for loss.

OPPONENTS GROUNDED
The Rams were among the NFL’s best last season when it came to preventing big plays.
On the season, St. Louis allowed just 36 pass
plays of 20 yards or more. The Rams ranked
second in the NFL in the category. Only
Pittsburgh (31) was better.
The Rams’ pass defense fueled the team’s win
in Tampa Bay in Week 16 as St. Louis intercepted four passes and returned one of them
for a touchdown.
CB Cortland Finnegan
Led by Janoris Jenkins (4) and Cortland
Finnegan (3), nine different players recorded at least one interception
for the Rams in 2012. With a year under the belts of CBs Janoris Jenkins
and Trumaine Johnson, St. Louis looks to make even bigger strides
against the pass in 2013. The Rams also added versatile LB Alec Ogletree
to the team’s pass defense, and first-year defensive coordinator Tim
Walton boasts an extensive background in secondary play which should
boost an already strong group.

Jenkins also led the Rams with 15 pass breakups and in interceptions with
four on the season.
The Rams’ rookie hails from a hotbed of NFL talent. When it comes to
producing NFL players, few places in the country can rival “The Muck.”
Jenkins is the latest in a long line of NFL players who hail from the small
South Florida city of Pahokee. The Rams selected Jenkins with the 39th
pick in the 2012 draft.
Jenkins was an All-SEC performer at Florida, where he spent three seasons
before finishing his career at North Alabama in 2011.
Here’s a look at some notable names who have made the trek from the
Pahokee/Belle Glade area to the NFL. The group includes Hall of Famer
Rickey Jackson and several notable current NFL players.

TITLE: For Fisher, big part of job is keeping up with youth
BYLINE: Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: May 10, 2013
When Jeff Fisher began his coaching career in 1995 with the Houston Oilers, he said he spent 80 percent of his time on
X’s-and-O’s and 20 percent on everything else. With “everything else” consisting mainly of dealing with players.
Eighteen years — or basically a generation — later, Fisher said those percentages have flipped to where it’s 20 percent
X’s-and-O’s and 80 percent dealing with players.
“Therein lies the importance of putting together a staff that you can trust — that I can trust to go out and get things done
on a daily basis,” Fisher said. “I supervise. I oversee things. I obviously manage things on Sunday. But it’s the staff that
deserves the credit — that I rely so heavily upon to get the things done.”
Fisher made his remarks this week at the St. Louis Airport Hilton, where he was keynote speaker for the AAIM Employers Association leadership conference. Much of what Fisher told the packed ballroom had crossover value to the general
business world. But it also provided insight into his management and leadership style as head coach of the Rams.
Fisher told the gathering that dealing with today’s generation of players is much different than it was back in his Houston
days. Especially since he’s coaching what could be the youngest team in the NFL for the second year in a row.
“It takes a lot more energy from my position and my perspective to be able to make sure that they are emotionally, mentally, and physically ready to play on Sunday,” Fisher said.
For 2013, that process began in earnest later Thursday when nearly 60 rookies reported to Rams Park for rookie minicamp over the weekend. The group consists of seven draft picks, 22 rookie free agents, and nearly 30 players invited on a
tryout basis only.
As soon as they walk through the door, Fisher said his goal was to try to establish a personal relationship “with each and
every one of them.”
When trust is established and it becomes reciprocal, team chemistry is formed. Laying the foundation of team chemistry
was a highlight of the 2012 season for Fisher.
“From a chemistry standpoint, of all the things that happened to this organization, that was the thing that I was most proud
about — creating that environment,” Fisher said.
Getting through to the players, many of whom aren’t that far removed from their teen-age years, can be exasperating at
times for a coach with an old-school mindset.
“We’re in the catch-up mode every day on the social media,” Fisher said, drawing laughter from the crowd.
That’s especially true, he said, when it comes to Twitter.
“It’s like, ‘Dude. Don’t push send now. Unless you’re sure,’ ” Fisher said. “I showed them some stuff a couple weeks ago. It
was like, ‘Oh, my gosh. What are you thinking? You might as well call a press conference.’ ”
Part of getting through to players, and part of building team chemistry, is having a team understand the difference between hearing and listening. To drive home that point, Fisher brought in eight deaf students — along with an interpreter —
to meet with the players just before the start of the 2012 Rams season.
Each student asked a Rams player a question through the interpreter using sign language. And each player’s answer was
relayed back to the students through the interpreter’s sign language.
“You know that their world is completely silent,” Fisher said he told the team. “They cannot hear. All they can do is listen
(through sign language).
“It was a powerful moment for the football team, but (the) point that was made is that we have no chance to be successful
2

unless you listen.”
Sometimes, Fisher takes a more humorous course to get a point across.
“We had a player last year, a rookie, that was having a little difficulty with the snooze button — OK? — on the alarm. And
he’d been late,” Fisher said. “We have a policy. If you’re late for a team meeting, wait outside. You can’t come in. Because
you just don’t walk in late.”
After the first meeting was over the player walked into a second meeting — one that Fisher was running.
“The players are all out there, I’m standing up there at the podium, and they’re all ready to go,” Fisher said. “I walk out the
door and I come in and I bring a lamp. And I put the lamp down. And then I go back out and I get a pillow and a blanket
and I set it in the corner. And then I get milk and cookies and I set it in the corner.
“And the players, they’re just sitting out there going, ‘Coach has lost his mind.’ ”
Not exactly.
“Since you’re having a hard time getting up in the morning, you’re gonna sleep here all week,” Fisher told the player. “And
we’ll wake you up in the morning and you’ll be right in the meetings!”
The anecdote drew the loudest laughter of Fisher’s speech. But that wasn’t the end of the story.
Weeks passed. The player was punctual ... until he showed up late again, saying he had run out of gas.
Once again, Fisher went to the props.
“I brought a gas can in (to the meeting room) — and I brought it right where his ‘bedroom’ was,” Fisher said. “I said, ‘the
price of oil per barrel just went up. That’s a $19,000 gas can there.’
‘That’s what I fined him for being late the second time.”
There was no laughter this time from the crowd. Just gasps. For most people — and some rookies — $19,000 is a lot of
money.

TITLE: Burwell: Rams’ bold trade signals the future is now
BYLINE: Bryan Burwell, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: April 26, 2013
The Rams are not rebuilding anymore. This is no longer a slow and steady three-year reconstruction plan like we thought
it was only a few months ago. It’s fast tracking all the way. If you didn’t notice it with the subtle, but efficient off-season
moves during the veteran free agent shopping spree, then the message was delivered with a seismic shock wave at
Rams Park in the early hours of Thursday night’s first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
When you leapfrog from the No. 16 position in the first round all the way up to the eighth slot to get your man, it makes
a statement about what you think you are just as much as it hints to the value placed on a dynamic receiving threat like
West Virginia’s 5-foot-9 zephyr Tavon Austin.
When you make that sort of aggressive move to swoop in and get the most dynamic skill position player in this year’s draft
class, it is an emphatic statement that you believe that the rebuilding process is officially over and the very serious business of the NFL playoffs are realistically on the agenda.
In other words, the future is now.
Just around midnight as head coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead finally poked their heads out of the war
room late Thursday night, they were both full of grins and explanations for what just transpired.
When Snead was asked what sort of message it signals that the organization made such a bold move to get Austin, he
said simply: “When you combine Tavon with (veteran free agent tight end) Jared Cook, it means we have weapons that
we didn’t have before. It says we have match-up nightmares that we didn’t have before. It says that a guy like Brian Quick
or Chris Givens are going to get open a lot more.”
It says a lot more than that. It says that the Rams, coming off a 7-8-1 season in Year One of the Fisher-Snead era in Earth
City, have every reason to believe it’s okay to accelerate expectations for 2013. Until now, it felt like the coach and general
manager believed it would take three years before they could take the giant leap from NFL laughing stock to being good
enough to engage in a legitimate hunt for division titles, playoff berths and serious championship consideration.
But the landscape has shifted rapidly at Rams Park. This is now an organization that believes it has put together the right
pieces that have upgraded last year’s miserable offense. When you quietly go out in the free agent season and bring in
the best offensive tackle in the marketplace – former Pro Bowler and No. 1 overall pick Jake Long – then quickly follow
that up by bringing in the top tight end on the market – Cook – those moves were already potential game changers.
Those moves – and Snead’s unwavering faith that last year’s offensive skill position draft picks will fully mature in 2013 –
created a dynamic on draft night that made the organization comfortable enough to make another bold first-round trade for
the second year in a row.
Armed with that additional first-round pick from last year’s blockbuster deal with Washington, Snead knew he had the
hardware needed to engineer a trade for the one skill position player everyone in the NFL believed was worth all the attention.
In a draft thin on first-round offensive skill positions – Austin was the only skill position player taken in the top 10, and only
four went in the entire first round – Snead knew what needed to be done. Austin is being touted as the sort of offensive
freak of nature that they simply couldn’t pass up, particularly if you believe you are now ready to make a serious playoff
run.
And that’s what Snead and Fisher believe now. They’ve already seen enough evidence from last season when they held
their own in the toughest division in football, going a combined 2-1-1 against the defending NFC champion 49ers and the
league’s hottest new upstart (Seattle) to be convinced that they were ready to take the next logical step.
Several hours before the draft began, team president Kevin Demoff was strolling through the hallways of Rams Park, perhaps just burning off some nervous energy with more than three hours to go before the first round began.
4

“When is the last time the NFL has had a draft when no skill position players were taken in the top 10?” Demoff wondered.
At the time, it sounded like a random question. Yet as the night progressed, it turned out to be a subtle prediction of the
twists and turns that were on the way.
One of the most important things a team can do in the later stages of draft preparation is gather the most updated lastminute intelligence of what teams are doing in front of it in any particular round. As one long-time NFL personnel man
told me a few days ago, the idea is to get your scouts and coaches on the phone calling any contacts they have on other
teams. The objective is to get more information than you give out. Burn up the phone lines and find out whatever morsels
are out there that provide clues into what everyone is thinking.
Apparently, Snead’s coaches and personnel people did darned good work, because by the time the doors closed to the
second-floor war room just before 7 p.m,, Snead was fairly convinced that all the players they hoped would be available
at No. 16 – Austin, Texas safety Kenny Vacarro, Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, Mizzou defensive tackle Sheldon
Richardson, North Carolina guard Jonathan Cooper and Alabama guard Chance Warmack – would be gone by the time
the Rams were on the clock.
So the decision was made to make a move to trade up in the first round. The only question was, how far? If Snead was
going to give up that valuable second-round pick (46th overall) – a precious commodity in a draft that offers prime value in
the second round – then they would go all in and go after the player they wanted the most.
That player was Austin, and so the Rams began hitting the phones, renewing an earlier conversation with Buffalo that had
already been explored for the past week or so. The idea was to make sure they got ahead of the one team they knew was
eager to snatch the West Virginia wide receiver, the New York Jets in the ninth slot.
So the Rams made the deal with Buffalo in the No. 8 slot and suddenly they had their big-play speedster to take over for
the departed Danny Amendola in the slot. Now pay attention to what is going on here. The Rams are getting faster and
more athletic in every position on the offensive side of the ball.
The offensive line is stronger, the tight end position is as dangerous as ever and if last year’s rookie wideouts and running
backs have grown up as much as Snead thinks they have, and Austin is as good as advertised, this offense could be a lot
of fun to watch.
Finally.

TITLE: Bernie: Bradford has pieces in place to break out
BYLINE: Bernie Miklasz, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: July 15, 2013
The other night, in a conversation with a friend, the topic turned to Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.
What kind of season will he have? Is he ready to make a leap to elite status among NFL quarterbacks?
Here’s what I truly believe: watch out.
In his first three NFL seasons Bradford was bloodied and bruised but he still is standing, and in 2013 he’ll be in a fair fight
for the first time in his NFL career.
The hard knocks of the NFL couldn’t kill Bradford. He took a merciless beating after joining the worst NFL franchise as the
NFL’s No. 1 draft pick in 2010. But it didn’t wreck his body or drain his morale.
From 2010 through 2012, Bradford was sacked 105 times, or more than all but four NFL quarterbacks.
According to Pro Football Focus, no NFL quarterback absorbed more hits while delivering a throw than Bradford over the
past three seasons, and only a few teams dropped more passes than the Rams.
Bradford has started 42 games for the Rams, and over that relatively brief time he’s played for two owners, two head
coaches, two general managers and three offensive coordinators.
He’s thrown to 11 different starters at wide receiver, and seven starters at tight end. His pass protection suffered during a
turnstile count that put six different starters at offensive tackle, six starters at guard and four at center.
Bradford is 15-26-1 as a starter. Somehow, that record was all Bradford’s fault — well, at least to his most impatient critics.
Bradford spent most of the past three seasons operating under the worst possible circumstances for an NFL quarterback.
If you drew up a plot to ruin a career, this would have been it.
Bradford took all of the punches, took the unfair criticism, took the misdirected blame. He survived all of it. And now he’s
working in a stable program led by Jeff Fisher, a terrific head coach.
In my view the blows made Bradford stronger. You never know what people are made of unless they’re confronted by
adversity. And Bradford was steam-rolled by it.
But as he prepares to enter his fourth season, things are changing for Bradford.
The NFL couldn’t break Bradford, and now he’s poised for a breakout year.
And now — finally — help is on the way.
Last year the Rams drafted two gifted wide receivers, Brian Quick and Chris Givens. This year they drafted two more playmakers, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.
The Rams signed Jake Long, a four-time Pro Bowl left offensive tackle. They signed tight end Jared Cook, an all-terrain
vehicle capable of muscling defenders inside or running deep.
The Rams have two other promising young targets in third-year tight end Lance Kendricks and third-year slot receiver
Austin Pettis. They began making plays in 2012, combining for nine touchdown catches
Sure, this fun bunch is inexperienced. At age 26, Cook will be the oldest wide receiver, running back or tight end on the
likely regular-season roster.
And so what?

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Rams’ Bradford embracing leadership role
BYLINE: Nick Wagoner, ESPN.com
DATE: August 22, 2013
EARTH CITY, Mo. -- Entering his fourth season in the league, St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford feels like the
wise old man of the offense.
When Bradford stops and looks around the locker room or huddle he sees a group of youngsters, particularly in the wide
receivers and running backs, only a year or two removed from being in college.
Not that Bradford minds being considered a veteran on a young team.
“It makes me feel old, No. 1,” Bradford said. “But, I think it’s great. I think those young guys bring a certain energy to our
locker room. They’ve got a lot of energy. They’ve got more than some of the vets and it’s great. I think it gives us a spark.”
Although Bradford does have some help in the leadership department from a veteran offensive line that includes tackle
Jake Long, guard Harvey Dahl and center Scott Wells, a big part of his responsibility moving forward is embracing a leadership role to ensure the young players surrounding him reach their potential sooner than later.
Upon the departure of running back Steven Jackson, Bradford quickly realized a leadership void beyond just the opening
at running back had been created. He’s embraced that role in this camp as he can regularly be found offering pointers to
his receivers during practice or working extra with them afterward.
“It’s fun for me because I get to take more of a leadership role and try to help mold some of those young players and
teach them the game and teach them through experiences that I’ve had,” Bradford said. “I think it’s great that we have a
lot of young guys. I think it gives us an opportunity to take a lot of steps forward.”
The reality is that Bradford probably wasn’t as equipped to take the reins as the primary voice of the offense until this
season. Not only was Jackson the more established veteran but Bradford continued to find himself in a position where he
never had the chance to learn all the ins and outs of the offense.
Changing offensive coordinators three times in his first three years left Bradford trying to play catch up. It’s made it difficult
for him to offer advice to his receivers and backs because he’s been working to learn it himself.
Now in his second year in coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s offense, Bradford seems more at ease with his role. The
timing of that couldn’t be better given how young his wideouts and backs are.
Projecting a receiver and running back corps with an average age of 23 might be fun in terms of the locker room but it
also means the Rams and Bradford have high expectations for young players at a position where youth doesn’t always
quickly translate to success.
Rookie and young running backs have a long history of producing right away. Just last year, two of the league’s top five
rushers (Washington’s Alfred Morris and Tampa Bay’s Doug Martin) were rookies. That could bode well for second-year
back Daryl Richardson and his young cohorts.
The receiver spot is a bit more difficult to make an early impact save for a select few. Among the top 20 in receiving yards
in 2012, only three were in their second year but none were rookies.
Austin Pettis is the elder statesman of the receiver group entering his third season in the league. Chris Givens and Brian
Quick are heading into Year 2 and Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey are rookies.
Tight end Jared Cook should ease some of the pressure on those young receivers a bit, but it still might be asking a lot for
such a young group to contribute in a major way so early in their careers at a position where that’s generally been difficult.
Bradford is aware of that, but he’s also made it clear he doesn’t plan to wait around for them to develop.
“I think there’s obviously a certain level of patience that you have to have,” Bradford said. “Obviously, we’re going to go
through growing pains, but at the same time those guys have to understand what they’re expected to come in and do -7

and that’s play at a high level. I think that we’ve tried to make that clear to a lot of the rookies, especially on the offensive
side of the ball. They might be rookies, but they have to grow up fast because we are depending on them for our offense
to be successful. So, we can’t afford them to have a season of learning. They’ve got to be able to come in and help us
immediately.”

TITLE: Sam Bradford’s preseason in review
BYLINE: Nick Wagoner, ESPN.com
DATE: August 31, 2013
There’s not a player in the NFL who doesn’t look forward to the end of the preseason and the start of the real thing. This
year, there might not be a player looking forward to it more than Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.
“I’m really excited,” Bradford said. “I think it will be nice to actually get into an actual game week with a game plan, talk to
‘Schotty’ [offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer] obviously this weekend and early next week and figure out exactly
what we want to do.”
For each of his three previous training camps and subsequent regular seasons, Bradford has found himself trying to play
catch-up. He’d had three offensive coordinators in as many seasons and three systems to learn along with them.
This year, though, Bradford was noticeably more comfortable and relaxed during camp. He was more decisive on the
practice field and openly embraced the leadership role vacated by former running back Steven Jackson.
As he enters his second season with Schottenheimer, Bradford is comfortable enough that he not only knows the offense
but has spent time in practice teaching the details to the many young skill position players surrounding him.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher, Schottenheimer and quarterbacks coach Frank Cignetti have taken notice, planning to involve
Bradford more in weekly game planning sessions.
“As you mature in the system, I think it’s easier from a quarterback standpoint to say, ‘Hey, I like this’ as opposed to, ‘I am
not real sure about that,’” Fisher said. “As he goes through the week, he can experiment with some things. If he’s comfortable, we’ll take it into the game; if not, then we’ll take it out. We want him to be comfortable with everything we’re doing.”
On the field, the Rams didn’t spend much time in the preseason games revealing much of their offensive personality.
There are, however, a few takeaways that can come from the exhibition season that might provide some clues as to how
the Rams and Bradford are attempting to evolve offensively.
As ESPN Insider Mike Sando wrote recently, Bradford played 64 snaps in three preseason games, which ranks 23rd
among projected starters. Normally, Fisher prefers to play his starters some in the fourth preseason game, but he was
happy enough with Bradford’s performance in his playing time that he opted to err on the side of caution.
“I thought he had a good preseason,” Fisher said. “He’s got a great understanding of what we’re doing, he’s done some
really good things on the practice field and so he’s ready to go.”
Although the Rams kept things simple offensively throughout the preseason, Bradford’s comfort level is perhaps best
viewed through the scope of his attempts to get the ball down the field.
In his first three seasons, Bradford finished 30th (5.95), 32nd (6.06) and 26th (6.72) in yards per attempt. Hence the
Rams’ attempt to surround him with more speed at receiver and tight end.
This preseason, Bradford tied for second among projected starters in yards per attempt at 10.2. That spike yielded a quarterback rating of 114.1, which ranked fourth among projected starters.
It’s important to remember that the sample size is small and Bradford’s numbers are certainly bolstered by a couple of
deep strikes to wideout Chris Givens. What will happen in the regular season remains to be seen, but there are certainly
signs that the offense is indeed moving in the direction of one that will be more aggressive and take more chances.
Of course, anything that happened in preseason is already wiped away and only now will we know whether there will be a
correlation.
“The preseason is tough in the fact that you pretty much run everything that you have,” Bradford said. “There’s not really
a game plan. There’s a call sheet, but we don’t really sit down and talk. So, it will be nice to actually get into a game week
and know exactly what’s going to be on the call sheet and what our plan of attack is.”

TITLE: Chris Long embraces status as longest tenured Ram
BYLINE: Steve Korte, Belleville News Democrat
DATE: July 26, 2013
ST. LOUIS — Fans arriving at Rams Park to watch practice are greeted by a couple of signs with St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long’s photograph on them.
“You hang on long enough, they put your picture up,’’ Long said. “It’s a lot of luck. I’m just fortunate to still be here. We’ve
had a lot of ups and downs, but the past is the past and we’re in Year 2 of Coach (Jeff) Fisher’s era here. We’re just going
to keep building. I think we have a good foundation under us.’’
The 28-year-old Long has hung around long enough -- he’s entering his sixth season -- to be the longest-tenured Ram.
Long earned that title when running back Steven Jackson signed as a free agent with the Atlanta Falcons in March. Jackson had been with the Rams for nine seasons.
Long said he’s not surprised that he’s been with the team longer than any player currently on its roster.
“When I knew Steve was leaving, I knew I was the most-tenured guy, for whatever that is worth,’’ said Long, who was the
second overall pick in the 2008 NFL draft. “I’m in Year 6, so I don’t know how that would be in other organizations but for
whatever reason that is how it has gone.
“I’m proud to be here for six years. I’m proud to be a part of the turning around. I know this is it, and we’re going to turn it
around.’’
The Rams won only three games over Long’s first two seasons with the team and 12 games over his first four seasons.
“More downs in that time, but certainly the past being the past, you can learn from it and it makes you appreciate right
now and the opportunities we have a lot more,’’ Long said.
Fisher said Long has embraced his role as a leader for the Rams even though there are several players with more NFL
experience on the squad.
Linebacker Will Witherspoon is entering his 12th season in the NFL, and his second stint with the Rams. Center Scott
Wells is entering his 10th season.
“We assigned parking spots to the players, and we did it based on seniority, and he’s still about four or five down the line,’’
Fisher said of Long. “(Witherspoon) came in here and he got the first one right off the bat. From a standpoint of seniority
(of players) that’s been here, yeah, he’s enjoying every minute of it. He’s taken a leadership role in the room with a bunch
of young guys. They work together, and he’s taking a lot of pride in this defense.”
Long is coming off back-to-back seasons with a team-leading, double-digit sack total. He had 13 sacks in 2011 and 11.5
sacks last season.
Long also led the Rams in quarterback pressures with 50 and quarterback hits with 24.
“I can get a ton better obviously,’’ Long said. “I had a pretty good year last year. Not the year I wanted to have. I don’t think
it’s ever the year you wanted to have.
“You look back on the mistakes you made and opportunities you missed. I can always compete harder and keep working
to get myself in better condition. That’s the one thing I can control.’’
Fisher agreed that Long has room for improvement.
“He makes a great share of his big plays with effort, and if you ask him, he’ll tell you that he can still do better with technique,’’ Fisher said. “He and (defensive line coach) Mike (Waufle) are doing a great job working together, as the rest of the
guys are, and that’s been the biggest improvement up front. It’s been hand usage and technique with the defensive line.”
10

As a team, the Rams tied for the NFL lead with 52 sacks. They bring back their entire front four on defense this year.
“The sky is the limit,’’ Long said. “I think the sky was the limit last year, but we made too many mental mistakes, too many
undisciplined mistakes. Our approach is going to be: Be the same edgy defense, but make less mistakes. Just focus more
and grow up a lot in one year.’’
Other players such as Sam Bradford and Cortland Finnegan also appear on the signs around training camp, and Long
doesn’t consider himself the face of the franchise or even the face of the defense.
“Not at all. I would definitely say that’s 55 (James Laurinaitis), but they decided they’d put a couple of my pictures up,’’
Long said. “I appreciate that. I’m a welcoming kind of guy, so ‘Welcome to Rams Park.’’’

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Long vs. Quinn practice battles paying dividends for the Rams
BYLINE: Stan McNeal, Fox Sports Midwest
DATE: August 13, 2013
ST. LOUIS -- If the surest way to improve is to take on someone stronger than you, then the Rams should be set at offensive left tackle. Or defensive right end. Or both.
The answer depends largely on whom you consider the better player, left tackle Jake Long or right end Robert Quinn.
The first pick in the 2008 draft, Long has been to four Pro Bowls so he owns the more impressive resume. Despite being
hampered by injuries over the past two seasons, he still was able to score a four-year, $34 million deal from the Rams,
who wisely decided to invest in the protection of quarterback Sam Bradford.
The 14th pick in the 2011 draft, Quinn finished with 10.5 sacks last year in just his second season, his first as a full-time
starter. If he continues to show similar improvement, he undoubtedly will have Pro Bowls in his future.
Says Quinn about Long: “Jake has some of the best feet on an O-lineman you’ll see.”
And Long on Quinn: “He’s quick, he’s shifty, he’s powerful and he’s getting better every single day.”
The two players are in an ideal position to assess each other’s games. They have been going head to head every day in
training camp for the 20-or-so plays when the first-team offense faces the first-team defense. Including a muggy Monday
afternoon practice that left both linemen dripping, they already have squared off a few hundred times through nearly three
weeks of camp. They aren’t going full-out game speed but they’re not slacking.
“If you’re a good team, you shouldn’t pace yourself,” Long said. “For the guys up front, we have to come off hard. We
gotta act like it’s game speed. We’re not going to roll guys up and stuff but we have to go as hard as we can. He’s giving
me his moves and I’m trying to punch (block) him as hard as I can.” Long said.
When the Rams played at Miami last year, Long went home with bragging rights. The Dolphins won 17-14 and Quinn went
without a sack a week after having a huge game against Arizona. “I was impressed with him then,” Long said.
So who’s winning the camp competition?
“It’s back and forth,” Quinn said. “Sometimes he gets me, sometimes vice versa. We don’t want to beat up each other too
bad. We can go 90 (percent) when the difference between 90 and 100 is not trying to kill each other. We get our good
work in and save each other for game time.”
Ah, there’s the key. The real winner of this one-on-one practice battles, of course, should be the Rams. If two of the team’s
best players are improving, the team should benefit even more than the individuals.
While the Rams’ offense has plenty to prove after ranking 23rd last season, the defense’s goal is to move into the top 10,
at least. New defensive coordinator Tim Walton already has raised his standards on grading players in camp.
“Coach Walton really is nit-picking,” Quinn said with a smile. “But it raises our bar and hopefully carries over to the games
so we will be a dominant D line and that carries over to be a dominant defensive team.”
If Quinn and his defense dominate, Long can take some credit. And it really won’t matter who is better.

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Jake Long set to cut loose for Rams
BYLINE: The Associated Press
DATE: August 15, 2013
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jake Long wants to set the record straight.
The St. Louis left tackle is 100 percent healthy entering his first season with the Rams.
After missing the final four games last season because of a left triceps injury that required surgery, the 28-year-old Long is
anxious to cut loose.
“I’m feeling great, the best I’ve felt in years,” he said. “The triceps feeling good. Everything is feeling good. I’m moving
around pretty well.”
Those words are just what the St. Louis brass wants to hear after signing Long to a four-year contract worth $34 million on
March 22. He spent the previous five seasons with the Miami Dolphins and made the Pro Bowl four times (2008-2011).
The Rams aggressively went after the free agent in the offseason in an effort to shore up the protection for quarterback
Sam Bradford.
The 6-foot-7, 322-pounder missed six games over the past two years including the last two in 2011. A variety of ailments
including biceps, knee and back injuries slowed his efficiency.
But the first overall choice in the 2008 draft is ready to show that those health problems are in the past
“I know I’ve had some unlucky injuries the last couple years and missed some games,” he said. “But things like that happen and I’ve worked through them. Right now, I’m feeling good.”
Long is looking good as well. He works mostly with the first team although he does not take all the snaps with the starters.
Beginning his sixth season, Long knows what it takes to get ready for the campaign and he understands that the Rams
want to take it easy with him.
“I’ll do whatever they want me to,” Long said. “I’m fine with them taking me out for a few reps now and then.”
Long has been butting heads with former first-round pick Robert Quinn in drills and scrimmages. The battles between the
two behemoths have caught the eye of offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.
“It’s fun to see those two going at it,” Schottenheimer said. “Jake’s doing great, he’s a pro and he’s working like crazy.”
The two late-season injuries the past two years gave potential free-agent suitors the impression that Long’s body may
have a tendency to break down late in a long season.
But the soft-spoken Long disagrees.
“That’s just part of football, you get hurt,” he said. “When it happens, you just bounce back and work harder to get back
out there.
That’s what I’ve been doing.”
The University of Michigan standout started the first 61 games of his career in Miami and never had any serious injury
problems until the close of the 2011 season.
The Rams are hoping Long will provide stability to an offensive line that has used 16 different starters over the last two
seasons.
Long realizes that his main role will be protecting Bradford’s blind side.
13

“That’s my only job,” Long joked. “If we keep him clean, I think everyone will be impressed with the way he’s going to
throw the ball around.”

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Finnegan focused on fundamentals
BYLINE: Nick Wagoner, ESPN.com
DATE: August 6, 2013
EARTH CITY, Mo. -- Seven years and 94 starts into his NFL career, Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan insists that
whatever success he’s had has been centered solely on raw ability and moxie.
As Finnegan moves toward the next stage of his career, he is well aware that some of the natural skills that have helped
him get by will slowly begin to evaporate.
Enter defensive coordinator Tim Walton. After spending the past four seasons working with Detroit’s secondary, Walton
came to St. Louis this season to take over a coordinator job that was unoccupied in 2012.
In addition to actually having just one voice calling the defense, Finnegan said Walton brings a deep knowledge of playing
in the secondary that should help Finnegan improve as a technician.
“It’s huge for me,” Finnegan said. “For seven straight years, I sort of got away with just talent. For him to come in, it’s
really going to hopefully take my game to the next level as far as fundamentals and technique goes. I think every DB benefits from Tim Walton being here.”
Finnegan has done just fine under the tutelage of secondary coach Chuck Cecil, posting 17 career interceptions, earning
a trip to the 2008 Pro Bowl and ultimately landing a five-year, $50 million contract from the Rams in 2012.
Cecil and assistant secondary coach Brandon Fisher have their hands full with a young secondary, which, aside from
Finnegan, boasts only one player (safety Matt Giordano) with more than three years of NFL experience.
At 29, Finnegan would seem to have plenty of solid football in his future, but he also seems to be the rare player who has
an early understanding of his football mortality.
In talking with Isaac Bruce on Monday, the former Rams receiver made a comment alluding to the best practice for extending careers deep into players’ 30s. Bruce brought it up in discussing rookie wideout Tavon Austin, but it might actually
apply more to a player such as Finnegan as he closes in on his 30s.
“From my background of playing this game, the more wisdom you have, I think the more success you’ll have, even over
talent,” Bruce said. “Your talent starts to fade, but the more you know, you can stay in this game a long time and have a lot
of success.”
Finnegan started his first season with the Rams by posting interceptions in each of his first three games, including one
returned 31 yards for a touchdown in the season opener against Detroit. Near the end of the season, Finnegan battled
a thigh injury that limited him to playing exclusively in nickel situations as the third cornerback for the team’s final three
games.
As he approaches this season, Finnegan says he’s making it a point to polish up his fundamentals to ensure he can keep
up with players who might get by on athleticism and talent, as he has for much of his career.
“Technique-wise, I think that’s overshadowed when you make plays on the field,” Finnegan said. “When your technique
is bad, you look at just the end result. Oh, that was just a good end result, but everything in between was bad. If you can
clean that up, what’s to say you can’t make more plays. I think that’s where we’re at this year.”
It’s somewhat unusual for players who haven’t turned 30 to have such perspective on their careers, but Finnegan is open
and honest about the best way to ensure he can continue to produce well into his next decade.
“Not knowing when your last snap is going to be and considering my love for the game, if I can leave on that note one day
and they say, ‘That guy was a good all-around football player, fundamentally and technique-wise on the way out,’ I’ll take
that,” Finnegan said.

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Burwell: Rams are Cookin’ at tight end
BYLINE: Bryan Burwell, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: July 30, 2013
On the first day of full-squad practice at Rams training camp last Thursday, the biggest roar from the crowd at Rams Park
was for the smallest man on the roster. There was pocket-sized rookie Tavon Austin catching a 3-yard pass route, pirouetting on a dime and scooting up field like he was channeling Barry Sanders.
It was a marvelous flash of athleticism, a dazzling glimpse into one of the more dynamic possibilities for this refurbished
Rams offense. And yes, the enthusiastic crowd was giddy just imagining how much fun it will be when the explosive firstround pick takes over Danny Amendola’s role as Sam Bradford’s new security blanket.
Well, as much fun as Austin should prove to be, my money’s on the other new guy on the field who’s 4 years older, nine
inches taller, 74 pounds heavier and just as likely to line up in as many positions in this passing attack as the zephyr-quick
rookie.
Tight end Jared Cook could be everything to this offense. Tight end, H-back, fullback, slot receiver, wide receiver. One of
the reasons the Rams quickly scooped him up in the free-agent market, signing him away from the Tennessee Titans to a
five-year, $35.1 million deal, was the belief that Cook can be the sort of multi-dimensional headache for defenses that all
the best modern tight ends are supposed to be.
If this revamped Rams offense is going to work as well as the organization believes it can, you’re going to be seeing a lot
of Cook racing down the middle of the football field making plays.
I’m not here to recite any advanced metrics that might provide you with all sorts of exotic explanations for why Cook
should be such a dangerous and explosive toy for Bradford.
Instead, I’ll use another toy of our modern culture that works so much better. Google “Jared Cook Titans 2012 highlights,”
and watch the video of this large, graceful man gliding through NFL defenses last season. He’s leaping over undersized
defensive backs or shedding them like bothersome debris. He’s too fast for over-matched linebackers, outracing them
down the seam or up the sideline.
He’s in the slot one moment, in the backfield the next. He’s split like a wide receiver, then he’s a tight end, a fullback, an
H-back.
“I’m sort of a hybrid tight end who can run very fast,” he says with a Cheshire cat grin.
How fast?
He’s run 4.49 in the 40, and says he’s run faster. At 6-foot-5, 248 pounds, that’s freakishly fast, and he leaps like a basketball forward, too.
There are a lot of important people who need to play well in this offense this season, but if Cook plays up to his promise,
Bradford could have a breakout season that would put him back in the conversation as one of the game’s most promising
young quarterback talents.
Cook believes he was underutilized with Tennessee. And the Rams sold him hard on how much they would feature him
in this offense the way Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez, Vernon Davis and Jason Witten are featured as
Pro Bowl-caliber tight ends elsewhere.
“They were telling me about the talent that was going to be around me,” he said after practice recently. “It was just mostly
about utilizing my talents and about putting me on stage a little bit more. ... And I was drinking from the water.”
And now he’s here in St. Louis and you could see throughout minicamps, offseason workouts and the early days of training camp how the coaches are sticking to that plan. Watch the team break from the huddle and you never know where
you’ll see Cook line up and what sort of personnel package will be surrounding him.
16

“It’s a different type of offense,” he said. “They put their players in a position that they need to be in. They move everyone
around and try to find ways to get each individual the ball. It’s kind of like the love’s being spread all around ...”
Although Cook is listed as a tight end, it almost feels as if he’s taken over Amendola’s slot position in the offense. But the
longer you look at this offense, the more you realize this is not even remotely the same offense that Bradford was running
last year with the reliable slot man.
It’s the same offensive coordinator. It’s the same playbook. But it just feels like every day they’re opening that playbook to
pages that never were opened last year.
There are other times when it feels as if with Cook, Austin, Chris Givens, Brian Quick, Austin Pettis and rookie Stedman
Bailey all rotating in and out of the lineup, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and Bradford are creating new
pages for this offense on the fly.
“I think it’s a little of both,” Cook said. “A lot of stuff that they may have had in the playbook last year, they never utilized
entirely because it’s really an entirely different system. There are so many new pieces and you have to figure out how to
get all these new pieces the ball. So in a sense it’s the same system, but not really.”
There’s speed, there’s size, there’s explosiveness, there’s quickness, there’s versatility.
That’s the giddy up side to all of this.
The nervous down side?
A lot of this offense’s success is hinged on a lot of young players reaching their potential at the same time.
If it all works — and particularly if Cook can prove to the Titans that they wasted his football gifts — the biggest ooooohs
and ahhhhs in the Edward Jones Dome will be for the tight end who defies description.

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Rams’ Austin ready to stake claim to return job
BYLINE: Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: July 29, 2013
Growing up, Tavon Austin’s favorite pickup game was something called “throw up tackle.’’
“It’s everybody for themselves,” Austin explained. “Whoever gets the ball, you run against everybody, and if you get tackled throw it up and next person tries.”
Quickness, elusiveness, determination, instincts and instant reaction all were necessary to succeed. Which may explain
why Austin loves returning punts so much. It reminds him of ‘‘throw up tackle.”
It’s not like the Rams are sending a news release to the 31 other NFL teams telling them Austin will return punts this season. But it’s no secret, either. His skill-set makes him perfectly suited for the job.
“Oh yeah, definitely,” Austin said Sunday after the Rams’ special teams practice. “There’s a lot of guys out there like me —
DeSean Jackson and Percy Harvin. You can pretty much see what they did in the league. So if I just trust and believe in
(my skills), and have a good scheme, I think things will go well.”
Through the spring and now four days into training camp, Austin has been everything that the Rams thought he’d be. And
that goes for special teams, too.
“Great ball skills, (is) dynamite with his feet,” special teams coordinator John Fassel said. “And a little guy, hard to tackle.”
When it comes specifically to punt returns, there’s no way you can coach what Austin has — and almost no way you can
coach against it.
“If we had to punt to him — he’s on another team — what’s your concern?” Fassel asked. “And there’s a lot. ... He’s got
breakaway speed, but he’s also got the ability that little guys have which is incredible quickness and elusiveness.”
The Rams spent part of Sunday’s 70-minute practice on punt returns. But for the most part, all the returners did were ballcatching drills. There was no work Sunday on kickoff returns, which Austin might also end up doing, although he prefers
returning punts to kickoffs.
Plenty of other Rams got some work fielding punts Sunday, a list that included Nick Johnson, Isaiah Pead, Zac Stacy,
Shane Reynolds and Andre Martin. Make no mistake, Austin doesn’t mind doing it all: Catching passes, running out of the
backfield and returning punts and kickoffs.
“Because that’s what I did my whole life,” he said.
But the extent of his overall workload in the NFL remains to be seen, and could depend on his level of activity at wide
receiver. If he’s an every-down receiver, or close to it, he might not be used as extensively on returns.
“I think that’s to be determined,” Fassel said. “We’ve still got a ways to go before (deciding) that, but that definitely is a factor. What’s his load on offense? And then is it too much to do both punts and kickoffs? The thing with kickoffs nowadays is
half the time they’re touchbacks. So the reps are less than they used to be as far as a returner.”
The exhibition games will go a long way toward determining the backup return spots behind Austin, and perhaps even if
Austin is a full-time punt and kickoff returner.
Practices only take you so far in such evaluations because without full-fledged tackling, it’s tough to replicate what happens with return men.
It’s easier to gauge whether a guy can cover a kick, or block on a return on the practice field. And the Rams spent a good
chunk of Sunday morning doing just that in a session that was closed to the public.
“We’ve got to put together a core group of special teams players and this is part of that process,” coach Jeff Fisher said.
18

In fact, some of the young backup and fringe players don’t realize how important such practices are to earning an NFL job.
Linebacker Daren Bates, an undrafted rookie from Auburn, apparently gets it. Before taking the practice field Sunday
morning, he tweeted: “Time to go get a job today.”
Bates approached the practice accordingly. In a one-on-one drill in which players ran 50 yards down field — one trying
to block and one trying to cover a punt — Bates and one of the teams’ top special teamers, linebacker Josh Hull, went at
each other with a lot of intensity, clutching, grabbing, and trash-talking. It escalated into the first scuffle of training camp,
with some pushing and shoving before Fassel jumped in to break it up.
“I love it,” Fassel said. “To be a special-teams guy, you’ve got to be a little wild and crazy. You can’t be gentle and passive.
So I’ve gotta just make sure we’re not fighting and not playing ‘penalty’ football. But you’ve got to have a little fight as a
‘teams’ guy, and this is the chance for them to show it.”

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Rams rookie WRs seek to replicate their success at WVU
BYLINE: Ben Frederickson, Fox Sports Midwest
DATE: July 26, 2013
ST. LOUIS -- Cody Davis is experiencing deja vu.
The way they line up on opposite sides of the field to spread thin the strengths of the secondary. The unparalleled speed
and ankle-breaking jukes. The high steps. The high fives. The swagger.
He’s seen it all before.
“Turning on the game film West Virginia week, that’s the first thing you noticed,” says Cody Davis, a St. Louis Rams rookie
safety. “They have an attitude. They’re going to go out there and do their thing, put up a lot of points and have a good time
doing it.”
Davis knew plenty about receivers Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey when he signed with St. Louis as an undrafted free
agent. He and his Texas Tech teammates studied the West Virginia duo for a solid week in October 2012 before limiting
the pair to just one touchdown and snapping the Mountaineers’ five-game winning streak. Starting Thursday, Davis will
line up across from Austin and Bailey again during training camp, and he has already seen enough in organized team
activities and early rookie workouts to make a prediction. The West Virginia twosome has a chance to be just as dangerous in the NFL.
“Whenever they are in space, they start doing the little strut, setting you up for all the moves,” Davis says. “Man, I haven’t
seen people shake like those two out here on the practice field. They’re doing it at this level so far, too. Some of their
routes are just ridiculous.”
Rams coach Jeff Fisher has swatted away any idea of a link between his team drafting Austin eighth overall, then adding
Bailey with the 92nd pick. He says the Rams didn’t consider the benefits that might come with the familiarity between the
two dynamic receivers who rewrote West Virginia record books in 2012, combining for 42 touchdowns and nearly 4,700
all-purpose yards.
But on the verge of training camp, he admitted the chemistry certainly can’t hurt.
“They’re good friends,” he said. “They’re roommates. They challenge each other. They study together.”
The last part could be the most important. At West Virginia, quarterback Geno Smith ran the entire offense through signals. The playbook was stripped down for the sake of speed. NFL players must process complicated verbiage in seconds.
“In school, we would probably install three plays per day,” Bailey said recently. “Now, it’s like 22. That’s a huge step.”
One he’s not making alone, at least not during training camp.
“We are roommates,” Austin said. “We quiz each other while we’re in there. It’s a blessing that Stedman came with me.
We are learning, together.”
According to STATS LLC, something like this -- two receivers bouncing from college to the NFL together in the same year
-- has happened only 12 times since the modern draft started in 1967. The success of those pairings, shown below, has
varied. But Davis, the closest the Rams have to an expert on stopping Austin and Bailey, expects big things.
“I’m excited to see what they can do,” he says.
He’s not the only one.

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Fisher makes it official with Richardson
BYLINE: Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: August 20, 2013
Just 16 months ago, Daryl Richardson was the 21st running back taken in the NFL draft and the 252nd player selected
overall. He didn’t even get the notoriety that comes from being Mr. Irrelevant —the last player picked in the draft.
He was second-to-last.
Now, he’s No. 1 in the Rams’ backfield. Not that it was a surprise given his strong play in training camp and the preseason, but coach Jeff Fisher confirmed the obvious after Monday’s practice: Richardson is his starter at running back.
“From a starting standpoint, yeah, Daryl would probably take the first snap against Arizona,” Fisher said in understatement. “But as far as who’s gonna come in (in reserve), we still have some evaluating to do.”
Low key and media shy, Richardson responded to the news in typical fashion. The man from Abilene (Texas) Christian
University is confident in his ability but a man of few words.
“I’m not really surprised,” Richardson said. “This is what I worked for. You know, I’m out here working every day.”
Now all Richardson must do is replace three-time Pro Bowler and eight-time 1,000-yard rusher Steven Jackson in the
Rams’ backfield.
“No pressure,” he said, grinning.
At 5 feet 10 and 206 pounds, the speedy Richardson thinks he’s a 230-pounder. He’s one cut and go, and he is not shy
when it comes to running between the tackles. That part of his game has not changed from his rookie season.
“You can tell running the ball, he’s the same,” said Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis, who chases Richardson every day
on the practice during training camp. “He’s attacking it. He’s explosive to the edge. He’s really a load to hit. He doesn’t
look like it, but he’s a strong kid.”
The difference between this year and last is in the passing game.
“Daryl’s gotten a lot more confident in his route-running ability,” Laurinaitis said. “Last year, when you went up against him
in one-on-ones, he was obvious.”
That’s not the case this year.
“He’ll kind of mess with you a little bit,” Laurinaitis said. “He knows now what he’s trying to set you up with. Last year, it
was, ‘Hey, this is what the book says and what I’m doing.’ He’s getting better at his protections.”
How the rest of the backfield shakes out remains anyone’s guess. Fisher reiterated that he’s trying to give several of the
backs a look with the starting offense during preseason as he makes his evaluation.
Richardson was told Friday by Fisher that he wouldn’t play much Saturday against Green Bay. Instead, Isaiah Pead got
12 touches, playing into the third quarter.
So far this preaseason, Pead has 14 carries for 37 yards, and one catch for 10 yards. His per-carry rushing average of
2.6 yards is lowest among the top four candidates at running back — a group that includes rookies Zac Stacy and Benny
Cunningham.
Despite his less than stellar numbers, Pead was upbeat after the Green Bay game and glad to get the opportunity.
“It felt good,” Pead said. “But it’s just football. The coach called for me to be out there, and I’m willing to take the opportunity. So I just tried to keep my team in it and be the spark that I can be and limit my mistakes.”
Stacy, who has battled a leg issue for the last week and a half, returned to the practice field Monday after missing the
21

Green Bay game. The fifth-round pick from Vanderbilt didn’t have sparkling numbers (seven carries, 23 yards) in the exhibition opener in Cleveland, but showed a knack for yards after contact.
On a third-and-3 run, he appeared stacked up at the line of scrimmage but somehow tunneled his way through the pile to
get past the first-down marker.
Cunningham, undrafted out of Middle Tennessee State, is the team rushing leader halfway through the preseason with 39
yards on 11 carries, a 3.5-yard average. He has also been used on kickoff returns, with his only return going for 36 yards.
And then there’s Terrance Ganaway. After sitting out the Cleveland game because of a minor hamstring injury, Ganaway
made his preseason debut against Green Bay. But the wait continues — he still has yet to touch the football in an exhibition or regular season game as a Ram.
“It’s no torture at all,” Ganaway said. “I’m just getting ready to have a good game whenever my number’s called.”
Ganaway was claimed off waivers from the New York Jets on Sept. 1, or after the conclusion of the 2012 preaseason.
He was on the Rams’ 53-man roster all of last season but was inactive 13 times. In the three games he did play he was
limited to three special teams plays and five plays at running back (all against New England) with no catches or carries.
He was in for nine plays on the Rams’ final drive of the game Saturday, but with the team in the two-minute offense was
used mainly as a pass protector and got no touches. Even so, Ganaway was excited to be back on the field.
“It’s been so long, being out there,” he said. “Especially in a true running-back setting. So it was just a good feeling to get
out there ... it was just fulfilling.”
When it comes to making the final roster as a backup running back, Fisher said consistency in the game and on the practice field is important.
“Understanding first and foremost how to play without the football,” he said. “For us, that’s more important than how he
plays with the football. And by that I mean, is he getting to the right place in the passing game? Is he proficient and does
he know exactly what to do in protection? Once you get that down, then we’ll evaluate the run skills.”
And if you can help on special teams?
“It’s a bonus,” Fisher said. “It gives them an opportunity to be active’’ for games.

TITLE: Well, duh: Of course Rams list Pettis as a starting WR
BYLINE: Stan McNeal, FOX Sports Midwest
DATE: July 30, 2013
ST. LOUIS -- When Rams receiver Austin Pettis was called into the coach’s office and informed he had made first team on
the depth chart, he did not jump with joy, scream with delight or give Jeff Fisher a mighty hug.
“I’ve been here the longest, know the system and had been working hard,” Pettis says.
As pleased as he was, he got it. He understood the promotion was based on longevity as much as performance. With the
departure of last year’s leading receivers, Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson, there were two openings on first team.
To fill one of them with the team’s most experienced receiver seemed rather obvious, even though Pettis’ experience is
relative. He just turned 25 in May and is entering only his third season after being picked in the third round out of Boise
State.
Still, that makes him the old guy among a crew that includes second-year pros Chris Givens and Brian Quick and rookies
Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. Givens, the leading receiver among returning Rams, was penciled into the other starting spot in the lineup the team issued before training camp.
Austin, the eighth pick in the draft, figures to be on the field more than any receiver, but the Rams avoided listing him as
a first-teamer by going with two tight ends in the starting lineup. The depth chart on espn.com also lists only two receivers
but includes a fullback. On four other depth charts I found online or in a printed preview guide, though, Pettis didn’t make
the first-string cut.
All these depth charts were compiled well before the Rams even opened camp. Not only do these projected lineups remain a work in progress, they don’t take into account the various formations the Rams will use.
They will employ as many as any team, too. Sam Bradford says he expects the Rams to rely more on one-back sets,
opening a spot for a third receiver. There will be times when tight end Jared Cook lines up as a third receiver and times
when Austin starts off in the backfield. The Rams might not even carry a fullback on their roster but still would drop a tight
end such as Lance Kendricks into the backfield on occasion.
The big difference this year, of course, is an upgrade in talent at the skill positions. A perceived upgrade, anyway. It’s not
often a team can lose its leading rusher, Steven Jackson, and top two receivers and consider itself significantly improved.
The Rams believe they are, though, to the point that offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was asked Monday if
there are enough footballs to go around to keep all the playmakers content.
“I think we’ll find enough,” said Schottenheimer, who prefers such a challenge to the one he faced last year when the
Rams proved woefully short on play-making ability.
However the offense shakes out, expect Pettis to play a key role. His experience helps, as does his ability to handle different responsibilities. He isn’t quite as fast as the other receivers, but he might be the most reliable in the red zone. All four
of his touchdown passes came inside the 10-yard line last season, including three in the second half of the season when
Bradford turned around his performance in the red zone.
While Pettis would like to start as much as anyone, he’s more concerned about helping the receiving corps shake its
reputation as team weak link. In fact, he spent his offseason directing the workouts in Southern California of two of his
competitors for a starting spot, Quick and Givens.
The coaching staff has noticed -- and applauded -- Pettis’ eagerness to mentor the younger receivers. Their offseason
work appears to be paying off, too, though that’s easy to say with the team still more than a week from its first exhibition.
“I know we haven’t been out here long, but we’re so far ahead of where we were at this time last season in terms of what
we’re doing,” Pettis said. “This being the second year with the same offense, I don’t have to think about where to be like
last year. It’s all about playing now.”
23

Though Schottenheimer said Monday that “everything here is based on running the football,” the Rams have too much
speed to not open up their passing game.
“I hope so,” said Pettis, who knows that would mean more chances for him. Whether he’s starting on not.

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Fear the beard: Healthy Brockers ready to take next step
BYLINE: Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: July 30, 2013
Michael Brockers’ beard can best be described as prolific, even biblical.
“It’s coming along very well,” said Brockers, the Rams’ second-year defensive tackle. “At LSU, I just had a little chin (hair)
going, but now I think the all-out beard really makes me look dominant. Beard equals sacks. And I think sacks are good
for me right now.”
Brockers was joking, but the goal definitely is to take the next step as an NFL defensive tackle, whether it’s sacks, tackles
for loss — what have you — and become a force in the middle of the St. Louis front four.
“Mike did a great job coming back off the high ankle (sprain), and really finished up strong toward the second half of the
(2012) season,” coach Jeff Fisher said. “He’s worked very hard. He’s changed his body, and we think he can be a dominating player inside.”
A high ankle sprain in the Rams’ 2012 preseason finale against Baltimore sidelined Brockers for the first three games of
his rookie season. High ankle sprains can take forever to heal — just ask Sam Bradford — and Brockers felt lingering effects of the injury throughout the season.
Even so, he came on strong over the second half of the year, playing very much like the No. 14 overall pick in the draft.
At season’s end, he joined cornerback Janoris Jenkins as the first Rams since 2003 to make the NFL’s all-rookie team.
Brockers’ season totals included 63 tackles, four sacks and 17 QB pressures or hits. All in all it made for a good start in
the NFL, but Brockers wants more this season.
“I can’t even see the ceiling yet,” Brockers said during practices in June. “I want to keep progressing from here on in, and
I just keep doing my thing. The ankle is fine. I have no excuses now and I’m putting a lot of pressure on myself to do great
things.”
The high ankle sprain, to Brockers’ right ankle, is long behind him. In addition, Brockers underwent cleanup surgery in
February to remove bone chips in his left ankle. He believes that procedure corrected carryover symptoms from an injury
at LSU that irritated his foot last season.
“When I’m in my stance, it really pinched on nerves,” Brockers said after a recent training camp practice. “Now that that’s
out I can just feel me being more explosive off the ball, getting in the backfield real quick.”
Brockers now has two good wheels and has increased his overall weight and upper-body strength.
“He’s changed his body,” Fisher said. “He’s gained some weight, but it’s good weight. He’s gained a tremendous amount
of strength.”
Brockers weighed in at 325 pounds for training camp after playing around 318 to 320 as a rookie. An extra five to seven
pounds may not sound like much, but for a finely tuned pro athlete it can make a noticeable difference.
“It can help a lot as far as playing the run, holding double teams, and just being a force in the middle,” Brockers said. “I’ve
been training the same. I just feel like this year I put on more muscle mass. I can feel it.”
But the bigger, stronger version of Brockers is nonetheless a faster Brockers.
“That’s the crazy thing, adding weight and then getting quicker than I was,” Brockers said.
The added strength and slight increase in bulk should make Brockers tougher to budge on run defense, which in turn
should help Rams linebackers get to the ball carrier.
Throw in the extra quickness that comes with having a pair of healthy ankles and Brockers hopes to be more of a force on
the pass rush. When opposing QBs feel pressure from defensive ends coming off the edge, the natural instinct is to step
25

up in the pocket. But if Brockers can simply push the pocket on a more consistent basis, much less break through the line,
that escape hatch is gone. QBs will have no place to hide.
As with many of his teammates, the summer break between the end of OTAs and the start of training camp wasn’t really
a break for Brockers. Instead of working at Rams Park, he simply switched venues to Baton Rouge, La., and Louisiana
State University.
Why did he keep working? Because when training camp starts, “You gotta hit it running,” Brockers said. “I’m 100 percent. I
feel better. I’m playing better. I can turn the corner better. It’s sad news for the other team but for me it’s great news.”
Because beard, plus strength and quickness, could equal more sacks.
“I don’t think I can get rid of” the beard, Brockers said. “You know, like (Fisher) with the ‘stache? I think I’ve gotta keep the
beard. Just trim it up a little bit, that’s all it needs.”

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Kendricks’ return comes at crucial time
BYLINE: Nick Wagoner, ESPN.com
DATE: August 27, 2013
EARTH CITY, Mo. -- A week ago there was a chance that the St. Louis Rams could carry as many as five tight ends into
the regular season opener against the Arizona Cardinals.
The odds of that happening have probably increased a bit since that time. Blocking specialist Cory Harkey suffered a leg
injury in last week’s game against Denver and the Rams released backup Colby Prince on Monday afternoon.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher has not offered much on the extent of Harkey’s injury, but he indicated Monday that Harkey
wouldn’t miss extended time.
“We got good news on Harkey,” Fisher said. “That’s all I can say.”
On the bright side, Lance Kendricks is nearing a return from offseason knee surgery and his return should help make up
for the loss of Harkey.
Including Kendricks and Harkey, the Rams will obviously keep Jared Cook as well. That leaves three other options -- Mike
McNeill, Zach Potter and Philip Lutzenkirchen -- competing for one or two spots.
Of more importance, though, is getting Kendricks up to speed in an evolving offense that he hasn’t been able to participate in at all during the offseason.
The Rams relied fairly heavily on multiple tight end sets in 2012, but the combination of Kendricks and Cook should increase those numbers this year.
Last year, the Rams had 143 rush attempts and 60 pass attempts out of two tight end formations and 12 pass attempts
with 29 rush attempts out of three or more tight end sets.
Kendricks is the key to that, though, because of his ability to play attached to the line as a blocker, in the slot as a receiver
or in the backfield as a fullback. While Cook brings a play making element to the position the Rams haven’t had in a long
time to the position, it’s Kendricks who is the sort of glue guy that can help keep the offense humming.
On Monday, Kendricks participated in some team drills for the first time in this camp though by his own admission it was
some light work. By his own admission, the biggest thing for him moving forward will be to get up to speed on some of the
offensive tweaks made so the offense can be as multiple as offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer wants it to be.
“Especially with Jared here, things shifted a little bit,” Kendricks said. “Things are just a little bit different. So my role isn’t
exactly going to be exactly what it was last year. So learning the new wrinkles and stuff is kind of what I’ve been doing.”
Kendricks said he is unlikely to play this week against Baltimore, though he expects to go through the pre-game routine
of warming up. The last hurdle for him will be to get some contact and get back in the flow of actually playing before the
Sept. 8 opener against Arizona.
For his part, Kendricks fully expects to be back at full speed for the opener. Having him back in the mix sooner than later
could go a long way toward determining the rate at which the offense becomes what the Rams have envisioned.

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Life father, like son: The McDonalds at safety
BYLINE: Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: July 28, 2013
It’s hard to believe now, but T.J. McDonald was a thin, some would say scrawny, youngster. Perhaps he had a little man’s
complex because he was adept at turning youthful horseplay into — well — rough-housing.
“I used to have a problem with being rough,” McDonald said. “I would just be playing around. But I’d get in trouble because somebody always ended up crying.”
Somebody else, that is.
“And of course, my dad had to handle me however he needed to do it,” McDonald said, laughing.
The rough-house dynamic changed radically at McDonald’s first little league football game.
“My first hit in football, I’ll never forget it,” McDonald said. “I hit somebody pretty hard, his helmet got all messed up. The
kid was laying on the ground and started crying. I’m thinking, ‘Oh man, I’m about to get in trouble again.’ ”
Instead, teammates started tapping his helmet in admiration, others patted him on the back. Instead of getting in trouble,
he was praised. Right then and there, as a fifth-grader, McDonald fell in love with the game.
Eleven years later, he’s a rookie strong safety for the Rams, working with the starting unit, and now far from scrawny at 6
feet 2, 219 pounds.
Just getting to the football field took some effort because his father — six-time Pro Bowl safety Tim McDonald — didn’t
want sons T.J. and Tevin playing the game.
“I kinda wanted to keep them away from football,” said Tim, now the secondary coach for the New York Jets. “I wasn’t sure
if I could stomach my kids playing. But it seemed like the less I talked about football, the more they wanted to talk about it.
So eventually, they were gonna play.”
T.J. remembers it well.
“Dad, he’d always talk about that he had 10 surgeries,” T.J. said. “And how he’d kind of crackle walking around the house.
He probably put a little extra on it so we wouldn’t want to play.”
It took some subterfuge, but T.J. finally got on the football field. During fifth-grade football sign-ups at his elementary
school, he signed his father’s name on the parent consent form. It was a clumsy attempt at forgery and team officials
instantly realized T.J. had tried to pull a fast one. The result was good, however, because Tim finally relented and let his
sons play football.
With a twist.
“I decided if they were going to play, the one thing I wanted to do was to not just teach ’em the game, but teach ’em how
to protect themselves, teach ’em how to tackle, keep their head up and all those little things,” Tim said. “So I ended up
coaching the Pop Warner team with them on it.”
A COLLISION SPORT
That coaching must have been good because the team didn’t lose a game in two years with Tim McDonald in charge. Not
that there wasn’t some controversy as far as young T.J. — short for Tim Jr. — was concerned.
“T.J. was always a guy who loved to run into people,” Tim said. “I got accused from a few opposing (teams’) parents that I
was teaching him how to hurt people, because every game he was knocking somebody out.
“It’s a contact sport and he was that guy. He had no fear at a young age. It scared me a little bit because he was willing to
throw his body at and actually run through people.”
28

That is pretty much how Tim approached things for 13 seasons with the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals and then the San
Francisco 49ers, from 1987-99.
McDonald had 40 career interceptions and won a Super Bowl with the ’Niners after the 1994 season.
“T.J.’s dad in my opinion is probably one of the top 10 safeties all-time,” Rams secondary coach Chuck Cecil said. “His
dad was a great player. I mean, a great player. I would say yes there are similarities, because Tim would actually come
down and lay his hat on you.”
Sounds familiar. They were similar in stature as well, because Tim was 6-2, 215 as a player.
“I know that Tim was a smart player,” Cecil said. “And T.J. has that quality. He’s already shown that he’s a very intelligent
football player.”
Cecil was a contemporary of Tim McDonald, and a Pro Bowl safety himself in 1992 for Green Bay. They almost were
teammates in 1993 — the first year of full-fledged free agency in the NFL. Cecil was a free agent after the ’92 season, but
even coming off that Pro Bowl year the Packers had signed future Hall of Fame defensive end Reggie White to a monster
contract.
“They paid Reggie, so they didn’t have anything left basically,” Cecil said. “So I wound up going to Arizona. Tim signed
with San Francisco (leaving Arizona) three days before I signed with Arizona.”
Cecil said the Cardinals planned to sign him regardless of whether McDonald stayed in Arizona or signed with the 49ers.
In San Francisco in 1993, McDonald’s position coach was none other than rising coaching prospect Jeff Fisher.
Like McDonald, Fisher had played at Southern California — albeit nearly a decade earlier.
So like his father, T.J. was an all-American at Southern California, played his first NFL football in St. Louis and now finds
himself being coached by Fisher.
(Tim’s first NFL season, 1987, was the Big Red’s last season in St. Louis before the franchise moved to the Phoenix area.)
“It’s just the weirdest thing, isn’t it?” Tim asked. “He starts his career where I started my career — in the same city. It’s a
pretty good deal. He’s excited and I’m excited for him.”
T.J. never has backed down from the expectations and pressures that come with having a famous football father, pressures that intensified once he arrived at USC.
“People expected me to be good,” T.J. said. “But for me, that wasn’t new to me. I had the same name as him — Tim McDonald, Jr. That’s something I can’t hide from, so I just embrace it. For me to go to USC, my dad was a captain. I was a
captain. He was All-American. I was All-American in college.”
ON TO THE NFL
After a standout 2011 season, by all accounts McDonald’s play fell off as a senior at Southern Cal.
“It was hard to evaluate him because his senior year he was very hot and cold,” Cecil said. “I think that was one of the
reasons that he kind of fell — that we were able to get him in the third round — because it scared some people off.
“But when you watched the Senior Bowl and you watched some of his junior (year) games, it was like the guy can do it all.
It was just, ‘Does he want to?’ Or, ‘Can you get it out of him?’”
During his pre-draft visit to Rams Park, McDonald made a very good impression, enough so that the team drafted him No.
71 overall.
“He’s got all the tools to play the position at this level and play it very, very well,” Fisher said. “We’re especially impressed
with his instincts and his football intelligence. He’s making calls like veterans make calls in the secondary.”
T.J. credits his father helping develop that football IQ. Besides serving as his little league coach, Tim also coached T.J. at
29

Edison High in Fresno, Calif. When T.J. was at Southern Cal, they used to watch game film together on Skype.
“He taught me how to watch film, taught me how to be a student of the game,” T.J. said. “He taught me how to see pieces
of the puzzle, and that’s something that I pride myself on. It kind of sets me above the curve I feel like when I’m watching
film or learning the game.”
Every bit of knowledge helps in the NFL, especially as a rookie playing safety.
“At safety, you go the wrong way, or you make the wrong read, or your eyes aren’t where they’re supposed to be, a lot of
times that turns into six (points),” Cecil said. “So that’s the challenge, really, to try and get him up to speed as fast as possible. And to show him as many things as he’s gonna see during the season.”
Given the complexities of the NFL game, there’s no way McDonald can be shown everything or get schooled on everything before the regular-season opener, Sept. 8 against his father’s former team — Arizona.
“So the big generalization there is just give him certain guidelines and things to go by, and then let his natural football
instincts take over,” Cecil said.
Big expectations
The proud father thinks T.J. has plenty of instincts and plenty of talent to make it at this level.
“I think he’ll be a great pro,” Tim said. “I’ve always felt he could be a great pro just because of his understanding of the
game and his willingness to work.”
Over T.J.’s last couple of years in college, the question to him from his father was: Do you want an NFL experience, or do
you want an NFL career?
“His answer’s always been, I’m willing to do and pay whatever price I need to pay, because I want an NFL career,” Tim
said.
And here we go.

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Wells rebounds from injury-riddled season
BYLINE: Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: July 31, 2013
For Rams center Scott Wells, the 2012 season was a challenge.
One of the team’s major offseason acquisitions, Wells signed a four-year, $24-million free agent contract following a 2011
campaign with the Green Bay Packers that finished with a trip to his first Pro Bowl.
A tough competitor, Wells was supposed to add grit, experience and stability to the middle of the Rams’ offensive line.
But his first season in St. Louis was limited by a series of injuries.
Wells, who stands 6 feet 2 and weighs 300 pounds, missed much of his first training camp in St. Louis after having knee
surgery in the spring of 2012. He recovered in time for the season opener in Detroit but went down again in the opening
half of the 27-23 loss with a broken foot, which forced him to the sideline for the next nine games.
Wells, who made 96 starts in eight seasons with Green Bay, re-injured the right knee in his first practice upon returning
from the foot injury but battled to finish out the 7-8-1 regular season.
In January, he underwent an arthroscopic procedure to repair torn cartilage.
“It was a difficult season for a number of reasons,’’ Wells, 31, said following a recent practice at Rams Park in Earth City.
“Through the first eight years of my career, I’d never been seriously injured. Like everybody, I dealt with some minor stuff,
but I don’t think I’d ever missed more than two games in row. On top of that, I was with a new team and wasn’t able to do
a whole lot to help. It was frustrating because I’d never dealt with anything like it before.’’
Wells continued: “But I feel great now and I’m really excited about this season.’’
Well said the offensive line’s strong finish a year ago – the team allowed 26 sacks in the first 10 games but just nine in the
six after he returned to the lineup – provides something to build on.
“I know it helped me, getting a chance to get back into the lineup and play again last year,’’ he said. “Anytime you go into
the second year of a system, I think the confidence level goes up and so do the expectations.
“Last year, even with all the injuries, I think we were able to establish a foundation. Now we just have to keep working
toward that next level.’’
On a team loaded with youth, the offensive line is rich in experience, featuring Wells, right guard Harvey Dahl (seventh
year), right tackle Rodger Saffold (fourth year) and left tackle Jake Long, a four-time Pro Bowler signed as a free agent in
the offseason. Chris Williams (sixth year) and Shelley Smith (fourth season) are the current frontrunners in the battle at
left guard.
Other offensive linemen in camp are Joe Barksdale (third season), Mizzou product Tim Barnes (second season), Brandon
Washington (first season), Ryan Lee (first season), Ty Nsekhe (first season) and rookies Sean Hooey, Graham Pocic (Illinois) and Barrett Jones. Jones, a three-time national champion from Alabama, was a fourth-round draft choice in April.
“We’ve got a good group of guys competing and working to get better every day,’’ offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said following Monday’s practice. “And these guys are being pushed, going up against our defensive linemen.
Every day, that’s just a dogfight.’’
Because of last year’s injuries, Smith made six starts at guard and Barksdale started a pair of games at left tackle.
“The more guys you have with NFL game experience on the roster, the better off you’re going to be. You can never have
too much depth,’’ Wells said. “At the same time, training camp is about getting your starting five as much time together
as possible. You need those reps together so that every man on the line has a feel for what the other guys like to do in
certain situations.’’
31

Long, who spent his the first five seasons with the Miami Dolphins, agreed: “This is a strong group – I think we can be
equally good at running and passing the ball – but the big thing now is getting used to each other and developing that
cohesiveness. The more time you spend as a five-man unit, the more time you have to learn how to play off one another.
“In just a short time, I see this is a tough group that really likes to get after it.’’
Like everyone else, Wells is looking forward to seeing what the Rams can do offensively this season.
“Again, being in the second year of the system, everybody seems to be a little more comfortable,’’ he said. “I know we’ve
added an awful lot of speed and explosiveness, and I think we’re all anxious to see how it all comes together.’’

ST. LOUIS RAMS FEATURE CLIPS
TITLE: Hayes says playing for Rams more important than money
BYLINE: Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: June 14, 2013
Like many free agents before him, Rams defensive end William Hayes talked in late December about how he’d like to stay
with his current team, how much he liked his teammates, the coaching staff ... yada, yada, yada.
Just about every pending free agent talks that way before the fact, and many end up signing elsewhere. But Hayes really
meant it.
After a surprisingly productive 2012 campaign off the bench, Hayes could have signed elsewhere for more money. He
could’ve gone to places where he’d have the opportunity to start. He chose to stay put in St. Louis.
“I like what we’ve got going on here,” Hayes said. “I see the direction this team’s going in. And then I’m comfortable with
all my coaches. Throughout the whole facility, I can say I get along with everybody – I’ve got great relationships with everybody.
“Like I said, I had opportunities to start, make probably a lot more money. But at the end of the day, I’ve got a head coach
who believes in me, a defensive line coach who believes in me. Great teammates. I mean, I just love my situation.”
In an offseason that saw the Rams land a couple of big-ticket free agents in left tackle Chris Long and tight end Jared
Cook, the re-signing of Hayes can’t be overlooked. Hayes’ three-year deal was for $10.25 million, more than half of which
($5.75 million) is guaranteed.
Hayes earned that contract with a strong 2012. Despite being on the field for only about one-third of the Rams’ defensive
plays, Hayes finished with seven sacks, plus 13 quarterback hurries and five QB hits. He was just as effective on run defense, making several big stops for loss.
“Will got an opportunity last year to play and he took advantage of it,” coach Jeff Fisher said of Hayes. “He was very
productive for us. He understands the rotation. He gets along great with Chris (Long) and it was important that we got him
back. We’re just happy that we got the thing done.”
Although Hayes didn’t take any free agent visits last March, he did talk to several teams.
“My biggest thing was: Am I gonna be happy?” Hayes said. “I could’ve went somewhere and made probably $5-6 million
dollars more (over the length of the contract). But the thing is, am I gonna be able to come to work every day and love
coming to work?
“That was the thing from my last year in Tennessee to now. My last year in Tennessee, I wouldn’t say I fell out of love with
football but coming to work for me every day wasn’t fun. Now coming to work every single day is like a blessing. I love
coming to work.”
Hayes came to the Rams last year on a one-year deal after spending his first four seasons with Tennessee. In St. Louis,
Hayes’ love of the game has been rekindled.
“I feel like I’m leaving home and going to play with my best friends every day,” Hayes said. “And I’m being sincere when I
say that.”
It begins with Fisher, and extends to assistant head coach Dave McGinnis, defensive line coach Mike Waufle, and his
teammates.
“I’ve been knowing Fisher now going on five years,” Hayes said. “He’s always been the same character. When we were
0-6 (in Tennessee in 2009) his whole demeanor never changed. You don’t have a lot of coaches like that. He cares about
his players. His players come before anything, and that’s on and off the field.
“I’m pretty sure after I’m done with football, I’m still gonna have a great relationship with Fisher.
He’s just a good dude. And you’ve got ‘Wauf’ and McGinnis – just standup guys. What comes out of their mouths you
know is sincere.”
33

After his year as a super sub, what can Hayes do for an encore in 2013? His role figures to be similar to 2012 – backing
up Long at left end and sliding inside to defensive tackle in passing situations. Hayes actually got most of his sacks a year
ago from the defensive tackle position. One of his goals this year is to improve his pass rush from the end spot.
“My goal is to be just as good a pass rusher at d-end as I was at d-tackle,” Hayes said.
At Tennessee, Hayes was occasionally moved inside in passing situations, but mainly on an emergency basis following
injuries to other players. He said he never really practiced at defensive tackle with the Titans. So when game time came
and Hayes was asked to move inside he said: “I was absolutely horrible at it.”
In St. Louis, he spent some time inside every day in practice. In fact, he worked more from the tackle spot than end during
one-on-one pass rush drills. And you know what they say about practice. It didn’t make Hayes perfect, but it made him
one of the unsung heroes of the defense – a defense that tied for the NFL sacks title with Denver (with 52).
“I expect us honestly to be the leaders in sacks again this year,” Hayes said. “I wouldn’t expect nothing different.”

TITLE: Rams’ Rivers takes advantage of extra playing time
BYLINE: Joe Lyons, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
DATE: August 20, 2013
Defensive end Gerald Rivers knows what Rams teammate Eugene Sims is going through. He’s been there, too.
“My best wishes and condolences go out to Eugene; he lost his mother,’’ Rivers said following Monday’s practice at Rams
Park in Earth City. “I lost my grandmother before my last season at Ole Miss.’’
With Sims away from the team to deal with family matters, Rivers, a rookie free agent, received some added playing time
in the Rams’ 19-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night at the Edward Jones Dome.
“You have to take advantage of the situations you’re put in,’’ Rivers said. “That’s what this league is about.’’
The 6-foot-5, 258-pound Rivers was on the field for more plays (40) than any other Rams defender, saw some action with
the first unit and ended up with a pair of tackles.
“Coach put me in a situation and I just wanted to prove to them that they made the right choice,’’ he said. “I figured I’d be
out there, probably not that early, but you always have to be ready. Rob (starter Robert Quinn) needed a blow and Coach
told me to go in. The coaches put me in position to make plays, I was able to take advantage of the playing time and
hopefully that’s something I can build on.”
Rams coach Jeff Fisher was impressed with Rivers.
“He made some plays early against their starters, which is good to see,’’ Fisher said. “He stepped up on the depth chart
and made some plays, so we’ll continue to evaluate him. Week two of camp, I think he got tired, slowed down a little bit,
but (defensive line coach Mike Waufle) has got him going now and it’s good to see him running around.
“It’ll be interesting to see how he does in the next couple of weeks.’’
Rivers, who had one tackle in the Rams’ preseason loss in Cleveland on Aug. 8, played three seasons at Mississippi,
making 10 starts in 27 games. As a junior in 2011, he recorded 13 tackles, two sacks and 4½ tackles for loss.
Rivers was ruled academically ineligible before his senior season with the Rebels, a result of losing his grandmother, the
most influential person in his life.
“I lost my focus, dealing with some family stuff, and ended up being academically ineligible,’’ he said. “I felt bad because
that’s not how my grandmother would’ve wanted me to go out, so I finished up my senior year, graduated and just trained.
I went back to Georgia and just kept grinding and working to get better every day. I try to pride myself on my work ethic,
my ability to bounce back from adversity.
“I did well on my pro day, made it through a regional camp, a super-regional in Dallas and that just gave me a chance to
impress scouts. Now, every day out here, I’m just working to show the Rams they made a good decision on me.’’
