    Greg Robinson trade illustrates a new way of thinking by the Rams

    The writing was on the wall well before the Rams traded Greg Robinson to the Detroit Lions early Thursday morning for a sixth-round draft pick.So we won’t give them too much credit for acting decisively and wisely in completing the trade, which puts to rest the inglorious three-year Rams career of a player of whom so much was expected after he was selected second overall in the 2014 draft and yet so little was delivered.The former Auburn star was supposed to lock...

    The Clippers could be on the move.And in the process, they could supplement the newest Los Angeles entertainment and sports hub and the future home of the Rams and Chargers.According to multiple sources, the Clippers and the city of Inglewood are closing in on entering an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) on 22 acres of land owned by the city between Prairie and Yukon Avenues south of Century Boulevard.The Clippers would use the land to build a privately financed new...

    Is there a Rams QB battle between Goff and Mannion?

    Quite a bit was made last week when Rams coach Sean McVay commented on his team’s quarterback situation with second-year starter Jared Goff and third-year backup Sean Mannion.To recap, McVay said Goff “has done a nice job getting better,” but then added: “but you always want to make sure that you’re playing the guy that you feel like gives you the best ability to win football games, because we owe it to our coaches, to our players and to this...

    Andrew Whitworth — the Rams’ new left tackle and more

    THOUSAND OAKS — It was a simple gesture, nothing more than a few words of instruction from one player to another. But the poignancy and significance of the moment weren’t lost on Rob Havenstein upon getting a quick visit recently from new Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth.The unsolicited manner in which Whitworth approached Havenstein was incredibly telling, and that stood out to Havenstein. As it should for the rest of the offensive line and the Rams in general, for...

    Bonsignore: Here’s why Year 2 should look much better for Rams quarterback Jared Goff

    As observations go, it probably falls more into the can’t-be-seen-without-a-microscope category. But the most astute scientists will tell you items unable to be detected by the human eye are sometimes the most critical, so the relatively casual critique Robert Woods made about Jared Goff might foretell something more significant.Woods, the Rams’ free agent wide receiver pickup, and Goff, the second-year quarterback on whom so much of their future success depends, have...

    NFL moves Super Bowl at Inglewood stadium back to 2022

    The delay of the opening of the Rams and Chargers new Inglewood stadium will also delay the Super Bowl’s return to Los Angeles.NFL owners on Tuesday voted to move L.A.’s Super Bowl-hosting duties from 2021 to 2022. Los Angeles was awarded the 2021 Super Bowl last May after the Rams had been approved to relocate from St. Louis to Los Angeles in early 2016, with the projected opening of their $2.6 billion, 70,000-seat stadium opening in 2019.But after construction...

    With contract talks heating up, Aaron Donald a no-show at Rams OTAs

    Let’s get the bad news out of the way first.Such as it is, anyway.The Rams kicked off Day One of their full-team Organized Team Activities on Monday in Thousand Oaks and Aaron Donald, their best player, was nowhere to be found.Oops.Granted, these practices are voluntary and thanks to the Collective Bargaining Agreement it’s not like anyone gets fined or punished if they blow one off.But let’s not kid ourselves. With the precious little...

    Why NFL’s Rams play in LA but live and work in Thousand Oaks

    The sun beamed majestically off Mount Clef peeking over the Rams team headquarters in Thousand Oaks recently, offering a soothing, peaceful setting from which the tasks of building and preparing a football team can be conducted.It’s been more than a year since the Rams officially returned home to Los Angeles from St. Louis, and while the L.A. Coliseum will host their 10 home games per season until their new stadium in Inglewood opens in 2020, make no mistake, their day-to-day...

    Rams, Chargers to stay put as opening of Inglewood stadium delayed to 2020

    The Rams and Chargers announced Thursday that the opening of their new $2.6 billion stadium in Inglewood has been pushed back a year because construction was disrupted for months by record rainfall.Excavation of the site, which formerly housed the Hollywood Park racetrack, started in November, but the teams said that weather delays in January, February and March have made it infeasible for the stadium to open for the 2019 NFL season, as scheduled.Instead, the Rams will remain...

    The path was rocky, but Rams’ Gerald Everett is where he always believed he’d be

    Every single one of the 30 or so dreamers lining the Rams practice field this weekend in Thousand Oaks has a story to tell. You don’t just pull up at an NFL rookie minicamp, a place where lifetime dreams are allowed to continue or meet their bitter ends, without toting an extraordinary amount of baggage the result of roads less traveled.For every high draft pick with a lucrative contract on the way, there’s three undrafted free agents hoping to make enough of an...
