Found August 03, 2013 on Down and Distance:
As much as fans looks forward to the return of football, for most players, especially veterans, training camp is pretty much a pain in the you know where. In turn, players have to come up with creative ways to pass the time and stay interested in the daily grind of camp. Cortland Finnegan of the St. Louis Rams got a little creative, and thanks to social media, we are able to enjoy the fun. The game is called “Smack Cam,” and the title is pretty self-explanatory. You know in baseball when a player hits a walk-off homer, and his teammates give him a shaving cream pie? This is the football version of that, except they are doing it for no reason at all, except to have some fun, and to entertain the hell out of us. Here are the videos for your enjoyment courtesy of the St. Louis Rams official website:   I recommend clicking the post above to see the other couple of videos. Welcome to training camp!

QB Sam Bradford and TE Jared Cook looking impressive together in training camp

The St. Louis Rams knew at the end of the 2012 season that they needed to surround QB Sam Bradford with some weapons if they expected their young signal caller to go to the next level. TE Jared Cook was one of their free agent targets. A big (6'5, 248) and athletic pass catcher who has just started to become a threat, but the Rams think his upside is considerable. Bradford...

St Louis Rams: 5 players on offense under pressure (Part 1)

The St Louis Rams have already proven they have a defense that could finish in the top ten when the season ends, but they have shown in the past few seasons that having a solid defense doesn’t necessarily translate into wins.

ST. LOUIS -- All the oohs and ahs emanating from the early training camp workouts at Rams Park haven't been reserved for the playmaking of the flashy new receivers and the occasional big hits from the defense.

Rams could use running back by committee

A lot of questions at the running back position were abound after the departure of star RB Steven Jackson, but things seem to be looking on the upside for the Saint Louis Rams in training camp. Not one, or two, but three young backs - Isaiah Pead, Daryl Richardson and 5th round pick Zac Stacy, could form quite a formidable triple threat if things progress the way head coach...

One the Rise: Jared Cook

I can’t be covered Juan… Jared Cook never really lived up to his ability in Tennessee, but gets a fresh start in St Louis with his former coach Jeff Fisher.  It came out today that Cook will fill the role left behind Danny Amendola.  This is potentially huge news as Cook could be the primary receiving option that was supposed to filled by rookie WR Tavon Austin.  Jeff Fisher...

Veteran Witherspoon happy to be back with Rams

(Eds: With AP Photos.) Will Witherspoon's return gave the St. Louis Rams veteran insurance at linebacker and a mentor for first-round pick Alec Ogletree.
