Rams' Cook: Poor choice of words led to meeting with Fisher

  Jared Cook spoke eloquently about why he and four St. Louis Rams teammates did the ''Hands Up'' gesture, but comments about his coach get him in trouble last week.

You don't need to burn down your community, you don't need to harm others to get your message across.'' However...

Tre Mason has league’s best “breakaway percentage,” but must improve between tackles

With just two games remaining in their 2014 campaign, one of the necessary discussion topics of the offseason will be the Rams’ backfield situation. Rookie Tre Mason has a stranglehold on the starting job as it stands, but the Rams will head into the winter with 2013 leading rusher Zac Stacy and effective spell back Benny Cunningham still in tow. The competition and experience...

We have read the reports. We have heard politicians talk about the likelihood. Heck, we have even started to hear key owners step up in support of the idea. And considering that multiple owners meetings took place in November, some with the likely focus on relocation, the idea of a NFL team moving to Los Angeles has been put on the front burner, at least privately. Now comes this...

WATCH: St. Louis Rams Punter Johnny Hekker Flexes During Thursday Night's Intro

The St. Louis Rams organization donated an unspecified amount of money to The Backstoppers, an organization which helps families of police officers, paramedics and firefighters who have been killed in the line of duty.

Jeff Fisher wants Sam Bradford back with Rams in 2015

The St. Louis Rams enter Thursday night’s matchup against the Arizona Cardinals with two consecutive wins by a combined 76-0 score. They do so with Shaun Hill playing solid football under center.

Rams' 'Hands Up' protest was Britt's idea

ST. LOUIS -- Kenny Britt is easily recognizable on the St. Louis Rams' practice field. He's the long-striding wide receiver given to showing off his six-pack abs, grinning and trading good-natured barbs with teammates. The Rams wanted him to grow up and he's embraced the fresh start offered by Jeff Fisher, who had first-hand knowledge of the player's unruly Titans years and never...

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher mixed things up a bit before Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins. He elected to send out a different group of captains during the coin toss.
