Experiencing the play that ruined his 2011 season was plenty for Danny Amendola. The St. Louis Rams wide receiver has never watched a replay of the freak injury, saying all that matters is he's back.
Amendola was Sam Bradford's go-to possession guy in 2010 with 85 receptions. He was durable, too, playing all 16 games and totaling 90 kickoff and punt returns.
ST. LOUIS There are only so many ways to say the past has been forgotten. St. Louis Rams offensive linemen understand this better than most early in training camp. There are concise ways. There are cerebral ways. There are reflective ways. Yes, there are only so many ways to say a bad memory has been erased.
Take third-year guard Bryan Mattison, who started four games during last...
Chris Long was due 10.31 million in the final year of his rookie deal, after going 2nd overall in the 2008 NFL Draft. This extension adds an extra 4 years, 50 million to the existing deal to essentially make it a 5 year, 60 million dollar contract, with 37 million guaranteed. Long is one of the rare picks that panned out in St. Louis under the old regime.
He doesn’t stop the run...

It was introduced, like such things tend to be, in a meeting room at Rams Park during organized team activities at a time when coach Jeff Fisher pitched his vision to a young defensive line.

The mission inspired. It began as another Fisher...

On a map, St Louis is in the middle of the country. In fantasy football, however, the St Louis Rams are on an island in the middle of nowhere.
The 2011 season saw quarterback Sam Bradford get banged up and stay banged up. The wide receiver corps caught only bad breaks. A rookie tight end struggled to find his place as an NFL presence. The only real statistical bright spot...
It appears as though Ravens FS Ed Reed is no longer considering options beyond playing in the NFL, as he made it clear that he wants to continue to play for the Ravens beyond 2012. I know [GM] Ozzie [Newsome] and them know I want to be here, Reed said, via BaltimoreRavens.com. We will get that done when its time to cross that bridge. I have a lot of respect for this organization...
Whenever a club other than the Pittsburgh Steelers or Baltimore Ravens wins the AFC North Division, it’s considered an upset. And that would be the case again in 2012 as the Steelers and Ravens are clear-cut favorites to win arguably the NFL’s most physical division. Baltimore finished 12-4 overall last year to tie with Pittsburgh atop the North, but the Ravens won the tiebreaker...
Former Baltimore Ravens running back Jamal Lewis has issued a statement reacting to his arrest Wednesday night in Georgia and being charged with child abandonment, Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times reports. "My arrest on Wednesday evening was the result of a misunderstanding rather than the result of me being an unfit father," Lewis said in a statement released to...
