Rob Havenstein is Well Positioned to Break Out in 2016

By Nick Wagoner

 

Phil Pires ‎@philpires
@nwagoner Which of the young OL players do you think has the best chance at having a breakout year?

@nwagoner: Well, the Rams are hoping that the answer to this question is “all of them,” or at least the ones who are projected to start. That would include left tackle Greg Robinson, right tackle Rob Havenstein and left guard Jamon Brown. We discussed the importance of Robinson’s development at length last week, and there’s no doubting that he’s the player the team most needs to take a step forward. But when I think of the word “breakout,” I think of a guy who potentially becomes a Pro Bowl player or better. While I could see Robinson improving, I’m not sure he’s headed for that level. Brown has big-time potential as well, but he also has some growing to do, especially coming off an injury. Which leaves Havenstein, the young lineman on the roster who performed the best in 2016.

Rams’ Todd Gurley Featured in New Burger Commercial –LATimes

By Sam Farmer

Even though the relocated Rams have yet to play a down in Los Angeles, the franchise is already making inroads on the airwaves. Running back Todd Gurley, last season’s offensive rookie of the year, is featured in a soon-to-be-released burger commercial for Carl’s Jr.

The “Welcome to California” ad, which debuts Monday, touts the California Classic Double Cheeseburger and co-stars comedian Jay Mohr as Gurley’s agent.

Gurley, walking with Mohr through the halls of a swanky agency, signs a football, poses for a selfie with some fans, and takes a big bite of the burger his agent provides him.

Ingelwood’s Pursit of Rams Draws Lawsuit

The Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood, Calif., engaged in “fraudulent” and “faulty” financial practices to paint a deceptively bright picture of its situation while it lured the Rams for St. Louis, a lawsuit alleges. The whistle-blower suit filed in federal court in Los Angeles is brought by the former budget and accounting manager for the city, Barbara Ohno, who contends that she was fired for trying to bring the circumstances to light.

Named in the suit are the mayor of Inglewood, James T. Butts, and its chief financial officer and assistant finance director. In January, NFL owners approved the Rams’ bid to move there, eventually into a new stadium built as part of a massive sports and entertainment complex.

If the Shoe Fits; Are Rams a 2016 Cinderella?

 

By STEVE RIVERA 
It’s impossible to pick up a publication, or watch one of the 24 hour sports networks and not hear of a grade, or projection of your favorite team. The Rams have had a fair share of both, and depending on your perception, you can decide which you believe.

I’ve read and heard every post draft perception from every pundit and still believe that if anything, the truth is likely in the middle. Meaning, that they are better than a C+, as ESPN would judge them, and not quite Cinderella as some at NFL Network have opined.

What I’ll say is this: the hyperbole is AWESOME!

Rams RB Tre Mason Receives Continuance From Court

By Mark Inabinett

It could be a while before Los Angeles Rams running back Tre Mason’s case is resolved in court. On Wednesday, Mason’s attorney requested a continuance in the former Auburn standout’s case.

Now the calendar call for Mason’s trial has been pushed back to July 28, according to the Broward County (Florida) Clerk of Courts web site.

A calendar call is when the parties (or their lawyers) involved in a case tell the court if they are ready to proceed to trial. If they are, the court sets a date.
