Lots of OTA reps, closer to home -- what's not to like for Hill in the STL?

ST. LOUIS -- Moving closer to home often is among the factors in a relocation, and that was the case with free-agent quarterback Shaun Hill. But there was more to it than that.

St. Louis Rams select Mizzou cornerback E.J. Gaines

I’m not going to lie, I don’t always know a lot – or really anything – about some of these late-round picks. But I’m a Mizzou fan, and therefore know a ton about the guy the Rams just picked, E.J. Gaines. Gaines was the best cornerback on Mizzou’s roster for the past three seasons. In 2013, Gaines earned first-team all-SEC honors. His best game came against Texas A&...
