RAMdom FACT

Irvine, Calif. - The Los Angeles Rams’ historic homecoming started out with an unblemished record in their first two preseason games in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Most recently, the Rams defeated the Kansas City Chiefs ,21-20, in comeback fashion to improve to 2-0 in preseason action.

The Rams offense has been steady and boasts the fifth-ranked rushing attack in the NFL through two preseason contests, averaging 139.0 yards per game on the ground. The unit is paced by RB Malcolm Brown who leads the NFL in preseason rushing yards, amassing 134 yards through two games and is averaging 6.7 yards per carry.

Los Angeles defenders found their way into the Kansas City backfield as three different Rams defenders (DE Quinton Coples, and DTs Michael Brockers and Cam Thomas) recorded a sack against the Chiefs.

In the two come-from-behind wins, the Rams defense has blanked their opponents in the second half of each of the contests, while the offense has added 28 second-half points.

The Rams play their final two contests of the preseason on the road in a span of six days as they close out the exhibition slate against the defending World Champion Denver Broncos before heading to the Land of 10,000 Lakes to face the 2015 NFC North Champion Minnesota Vikings. This week’s contest kicks off a travel schedule that will log 36,896 sky miles between now and the start of the 2017 calendar year.

IT’S A ‘HARD KNOCK’ LIFE

(PDF) PRESEASON WEEK 3Coach Fisher, Jared Goff and Todd Gurley available on field Players available on field Fri., Aug. 26 No Availability/Travel Day Sat., Aug. 20 - DOKUMEN.TIPS (3)

In January of 2012, Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke hired Jeff Fisher to be the 22nd full-time head coach in franchise history.

The 2015 season featured a breakout performance from RB Todd Gurley who led all rookies in rushing and finished third among all NFL runners in rushing yards (1,106). His rookie campaign led him to the Pro Bowl and earned Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. Gurley’s production came behind a young offensive line, including PFWA All-Rookie T Rob Havenstein, which consisted of 31 starts from rookies.

Collectively, the defense tied for 10th in the NFL in takeaways, were sixth in third down defense and 11th in sacks, despite injuries to key starters.

The Rams’ 2014 defense boasted one of the league’s best units over the second half of the season. In the team’s last eight games, the Rams ranked fourth in rush-ing yards per game (84.4), fifth in points allowed per game (16.8) and tied for fourth in sacks (26). They tied for the sixth most takeaways (15) over that time frame as well. The final stretch included a run of 12-consecutive quarters in which St. Louis did not allow a touchdown, including back-to-back shutouts in wins over Oakland and Washington.

The 2013 season was highlighted by the Rams’ first top-10 finish against the run since 2001, which continued a trait that has been consistent of Fisher’s teams throughout his coaching career. In 20 full seasons as a head coach, Fisher’s teams have finished in the top 10 against the run 13 times.

Fisher joined the Rams after spending 16 full seasons as head coach of the Tennessee Titans, 11 as executive vice president. In his tenure with Tennessee, he guided the Titans to six playoff appearances (1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008), three division titles (2000, 2002, 2008), two AFC Championship games (1999, 2002) and one Super Bowl appearance (XXXIV). From 1999-2010, only three teams had more playoff berths (Indianapolis, Philadelphia and New England). In the 2000s, Fisher totaled 97 victories, the most successful decade in franchise history.

Fisher’s teams have featured a stout rushing defense, as well demonstrated the ability to run the ball effectively. His rush defense ranked in the Top 10 in 12 out of 16 seasons with the Titans, a trend that as previously noted, continued in 2013. Fisher’s rushing offense finished in the Top 10 eight times during that same time span. Prior to Fisher’s arrival in St. Louis, the Rams finished 31st in the NFL in rushing defense. St. Louis ranked 15th in the category in 2012, and RB Zac Stacy rushed for 973 yards in 12 starts, the third-highest rookie total in franchise history.

One of the Titans’ most memorable seasons under Fisher was the 1999 campaign, where he led the team to its first AFC Championship and an appearance in Super Bowl XXXIV. The Titans became only the sixth Wild Card team to earn a trip to the Super Bowl since the NFL added the playoff round in 1978. Fisher guided the Titans to a streak of 13 consecutive wins against AFC Central Division opponents dating back to 1998. It marked the longest streak in the history of the Central Division and the third longest in the NFL since the 1970 merger.

Fisher originally joined the Oliers’/Titans’ coaching staff in 1994, after spending two seasons as the defensive backs coach for the San Francisco 49ers. He was elevated to head coach in November 1994, replacing Jack Pardee, for the final six games of the season. Fisher was instrumental in guiding the transition following the Oilers’ move to Tennessee in 1996.

Prior to San Francisco, Fisher reunited with his college coach John Robinson, serv-ing as the Los Angeles Rams’ defensive coordinator.

Fisher began his coaching career as an assistant for Buddy Ryan and the Philadelphia Eagles in 1986, coaching the defensive backs for three seasons before becoming the NFL’s youngest defensive coordinator in 1988.

A former defensive back at the University of Southern California, Fisher played for Robinson in a star-studded defensive backfield that included future NFL stars Ronnie Lott, Dennis Smith and Joey Browner. Fisher’s career college statistics included five interceptions and 108 tackles. The versatile Fisher also served as the Trojans’ backup kicker and earned Pac-10 All-Academic honors in 1980.

Originally a seventh-round draft selection of the Chicago Bears in 1981, Fisher appeared in 49 games as a defensive back and return specialist in five NFL sea-sons. He earned a Super Bowl ring following Chicago’s 1985 Super Bowl season, despite spending the year on injured reserve with an ankle injury that prematurely ended his playing career. During that season, Fisher began his post-playing career by assisting Ryan as an “unofficial” coach as the Bears ultimately defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XX.

He left Chicago in 1985 holding a number of team records including: number of punt return yards for a season with 509 yards in 1981, number of punt returns in a season with 58 in 1984, and number of punt returns in one game with eight on Dec. 16, 1984, at Detroit. He also recorded the longest punt return by a Bear in 39 years with an 88-yard return for a touchdown on Sept. 20, 1981, against Tampa Bay.

A native of Southern California, Fisher was a high school All-America wide receiver at Taft High School in Woodland Hills, Calif. Fisher is an avid fisherman and golfer and he also does considerable work off the field.

He also gives back to the NFL, serving on the NFL Competition Committee from 2000-15. We was a co-chairman of the committee from 2001-10. Although he was out of coaching in 2011, Fisher served as an advisor to the Competition Committee, and he officially rejoined the group in 2012 after he was hired by the Rams. The committee is instrumental in guiding the league through rule changes and ways to improve the game.

Gary Kubiak, a 24-year coaching veteran and four-time Super Bowl champion, begins his second season as head coach of the Denver Broncos in 2016 after being named to that position on Jan. 19, 2015.

The 15th head coach in Broncos history, Kubiak enters his 22nd overall season with the club after spending 11 years as its offensive coordinator (1995-2005) and nine seasons as a backup quarterback (1983-91). The 2016 campaign marks Kubiak’s 10th season as an NFL head coach, having worked eight years in that capacity with the Houston Texans (2006-13) before returning to lead the Broncos in 2015.

Appearing in nine conference championship games and seven Super Bowls as a player or coach, Kubiak has been part of four World Championship staffs during his coaching career. Before leading Denver to a win in Super Bowl 50 in his initial season as its head coach in 2015, he served as offensive coordinator for the back-to-back Super Bowl-champion Broncos in 1997-98 and as quarterbacks coach for the 49ers’ Super Bowl championship team in 1994.

During the course of his 22 years coaching in the NFL, Kubiak has helped 33 players to a total of 61 Pro Bowl selections, including Pro Football Hall of Famers John Elway, Shannon Sharpe, Gary Zimmerman and Steve Young.

In his nine seasons as a head coach, Kubiak has compiled a 73-68 (.518) regular-season record and a 5-2 (.714) postseason mark. His 310 combined wins as an NFL player (81), assistant coach (151) and head coach (78) rank second among active head coaches.

Kubiak’s teams have averaged a No. 8 offensive ranking during his 22 years coaching in the NFL. Additionally, in his last four seasons as a head coach, his teams have featured Top-7 defenses.

In Denver’s first season with Kubiak at the helm, the team finished the regular season with a 12-4 record, capturing a fifth consecutive AFC West Division title and the conference’s No. 1 seed.

The Broncos’ 24-10 win against the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 made Kubiak just the fourth head coach in league annals to win a World Championship in his first year as head coach of a team.

After appearing in three Super Bowls for Denver in the late 1980s, Kubiak also became the first individual to win a Super Bowl as head coach of a team he played for.

Kubiak navigated the Broncos through a difficult schedule in 2015, leading Denver to wins in an NFL-record 11 games that were decided by seven points or less. Included in that total were three 14-point comeback wins against playoff teams—the most in a single season in NFL history.

Denver’s defense ranked first in the NFL (283.1 ypg) for the first time in team history in 2015 while also finishing with a league-high 52 sacks. The Broncos’ championship run was punctuated by an historic defensive postseason effort in which the unit limited the league’s No. 1, No. 3 and No.4 scoring offenses to nearly half (50.7%) of their average regular-season point totals.

Despite a midseason injury to future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, the Broncos’ offense continued its winning formula under Kubiak. Denver went 5-2 in quarterback Brock Osweiler’s first seven career starts before Manning returned in Week 17 to lead the Broncos’ postseason run.

Before returning to Denver as its head coach, Kubiak spent the 2014 season as Baltimore’s offensive coordinator. With the Ravens, he oversaw one of the NFL’s most improved and explosive units to help the Ravens advance to the AFC Divisional Playoffs.

His offense posted the third-largest overall yardage improvement (+57.5 ypg) in the NFL from the previous season and recorded nearly 50 percent more big plays (74 plays of 20+yards) from the year before he arrived.

Kubiak spent the previous eight years (2006-13) as the Texans’ head coach, leading the franchise to a 61-64 (.488) regular-season record and a 2-2 (.500) mark in the playoffs.He was named AFC Coach of the Year by the KC 101 Club in 2011 after guiding the Texans to a 10-6 record and the franchise’s first AFC South Division title, postseason berth and playoff win.

Kubiak’s first NFL job came with San Francisco, where he coached quarterbacks for the Super Bowl-champion 49ers during the 1994 season. San Francisco led the NFL with a club-record 505 points (31.6 ppg) during Kubiak’s year in the Bay Area as Young received Most Valuable Player recognition from the Associated Press and earned Super Bowl XXIX MVP honors.

Selected by the Broncos in the eighth round (197th overall) of the 1983 NFL Draft from Texas A&M, Kubiak appeared in 119 regular-season games during his nine-year playing career in Denver. He finished his Broncos career completing 173-of-298 passes (58.1%) for 1,920 yards with 14 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

Kubiak led the Broncos to a 3-2 record in five career starts filling in for Elway and was part of Denver’s five division titles, four conference championship appearances and three Super Bowl berths from 1983-91.

Born in Houston on Aug. 15, 1961, Kubiak and his wife, Rhonda, have three sons: Klint, Klay, and Klein

2016 COACHING STAFF

Hallmarks of a Fisher-led team include a stout rushing defense, the ability to possess the ball with a strong running game and poise in the midst of adversity.

The 2015 season mirrored this philosphy and featured a breakout performance from RB Todd Gurley who led all rookies in rushing and became just the third rookie in franchise history to rush for over 1,000 yards. His rookie campaign led him to the Pro Bowl and earned Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. Gurley’s production came behind a young offensive line, including PFWA All-Rookie T Rob Havenstein, which consisted of 31 starts from rookies and 17 more from second-year players, 16 of which came from LT Greg Robinson. The unit finished seventh in the NFL in rushing offense and allowed the fewest sacks in the league (18).

Collectively, the defense tied for 10th in the NFL in takeaways, were sixth in third down defense and 11th in sacks, despite injuries to key starters.

Veteran DT Aaron Donald increased his production to 11.0 sacks and earned his second-consecutive Pro Bowl nod in 2015. Following up a stellar inagural campaign in 2014, culminating in NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors, when he led all rookies in sacks (9.0) and finished second among all NFL defensive tackles in the category.

FISHER’S DNA

Head Coach Jeff Fisher

Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher added three new offensive coaches to his staff this offseason:

Mike Groh joins the Rams as the team’s passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach after spending the previous three seasons coaching receivers for the Chicago Bears (2013-15). He is the son of Al Groh, a former head coach of the New York Jets and a longtime NFL assistant.

Skip Peete is also entering his first season with Los Angeles following a stint with Chicago, he will coach running backs. Peete, a veteran of 18 seasons as an NFL assistant, inherits a group led by Todd Gurley, who earned Pro Bowl honors as a rookie while finishing third in the NFL with 1,106 rushing yards last season.

John Lilly was hired to coach tight ends after Rob Boras was promoted to offensive coordinator. This season marks his first as an NFL coach. Before joining the Rams, Lilly coached tight ends at the University of Georgia from 2008-2015. During his eight seasons at UGA, the Bulldogs won 74 games, including five bowl victories and two SEC East titles.

Mike Groh, Wide Receivers / Passing Game Coordinator

Skip Peete, Running Backs Coach

John Lilly, Tight Ends CoachRob Boras enters his first full season as the Rams’ offensive coordinator, and fifth season with the club, after assuming the role last season in Week 14.

As the interim offensive coordinator for the final four games of the season, QB Case Keenum led the offense under Boras and the team went on its only three-game win-streak before falling to the 49ers in the season finale in OT.

Keenum played one of the best games of his career against Tampa Bay with Boras as the playcaller. Keenum posted single-game career

highs in completion percentage (82.4) and passer rating (158.0) and threw two touchdown passes and zero interceptions.

Boras originally started the 2015 season with an expanded role as assistant head coach/offense. In addition to leading the tight ends, he was heavily involved in run-game blocking. Boras worked with the offensive line and running backs coaches on developing schemes with their personnel to open up holes for the back field. Their collective efforts helped rookie RB Todd Gurley lead all rookies in rushing and finish third among all NFL runners in rushing yards (1,106).

Boras originally joined the Rams in 2012 as the team’s tight ends coach and held that position for three seasons.

Rams rookie RB Todd Gurley needed one game to get his feet under him. After that, he was among the most productive offensive players in the NFL in 2015.

Gurley gained just nine yards on six carries in his NFL debut in Week 3. Then he took off and took the league by storm.

With 1,106 rushing yards, Gurley led all rookies and ranked third among all players in 2015 in the category. His final total is the third highest by a rookie in franchise history.

Gurley’s 10 rushing touchdowns are tied for the fifth most in the NFL this season.

All that came despite the fact that Gurley played in just 13 games. He missed the first two as he continued to recover from a knee injury suffered during his senior year of college, and he was inactive for Week 17 due to a toe injury.

LEADING THE WAY

RB Todd Gurley was at his best when the Rams needed him most.

In the team’s Week 16 win at Seattle, Gurley rushed for 55 yards and a touchdown in the fourth quarter to help the Rams put away the Seahawks. He gained 42 yards and a touchdown in the final quarter of a Week 14 win over Detroit.

In the Rams’ Week 4 win at Arizona, Gurley ran nine times for 106 yards in the fourth quarter with runs of 52, 30 and 20 yards.

His 106 rushing yards were the most in the fourth quarter by a Rams player since Eric Dickerson’s 124 on Nov. 25, 1984. His total was the most by a Ram in any quarter since Marshall Faulk posted 143 in the first quarter of a contest on Nov. 11, 2001.

Despite missing three weeks due to injuries, Gurley finished second among NFL running backs in fourth quarter rushing.

FINISHING MOVES

RB Todd Gurley proved to be the big-play threat the Rams thought they were getting when they drafted him early in the first round.

Here are a few of Gurley’s notable accomplishments from a rookie season that concluded with Offensive Rookie of the Year honors:

-- He’s the first rookie in NFL history to rush for 125 yards or more in four consecutive games. His five total games of 125 yards are the second most ever by a rookie, trailing only Eric Dickerson’s seven.

-- His 566 yards are the most by a back in his first four career starts during the Super Bowl era.

-- He is one of three rookies since 1970 with 700+ rush yards in first six career starts (Adrian Peterson, Eric Dickerson).

-- His 12 runs of 20 yards or more were second most in the NFL. His seven runs of 30 yards or more were the most in the NFL and his 26 runs of 10 or more yards were sixth most.

-- Gurley was named the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Month for October after he rushed for 433 yards and two touchdowns in three games.

-- His 10 rushing touchdowns were tied for the fifth most in the NFL and were the most among all rookies.

-- Despite missing three games of the season, he finished with over 1,000 yards and was awarded the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award and a trip to the Pro Bowl.

RB Todd Gurley

HONOR ROLL

In addition to carrying the load out of the backfield, RB Todd Gurley gave the Rams a weapon in the passing game as well.

Gurley caught 21 passes for 181 yards. Combined with his 1,106 rushing yards, the Georgia product posted 1,294 yards from scrimmage this season, a number that led all NFL rookies.

In comparison with the NFL’s other top rookies, Gurley’s total yards numbers are quite impressive. Gurley ranked 14th among all NFL players in scrimmage yards, while Amari Cooper finished 39th, with David Johnson (42), T.J. Yeldon (47), and Duke Johnson (57) were the league’s other top rookies in the category.

Rams jack-of-all-trades weapon Tavon Austin enjoyed a breakout year in 2015.

Austin tied RB Todd Gurley for the most touchdowns among Rams with 10, which gave St. Louis two players in double digits in the category for the first time since 2006 (S. Jackson & T. Holt).

In his third season, Austin led the Rams with 52 receptions and was third with 473 receiving yards. He also carried the ball 52 times for 434 yards and scored four of his 10 touchdowns via runs.

Austin had 10 total touchdowns in 2015, tied for third most among NFC receivers. He found the end zone three different ways: five receiving touchdowns, four rushing and one on a punt return.

Austin’s 75-yard punt return in Week 1 was just the third longest of his career. He’s the only player in NFL history with a punt return of 75 or more yards in each of his first three seasons. Austin needs just one more punt return for touchdown to tie the Rams’ all-time record.

Now in his third NFL season, Austin has 19 career touchdowns: nine receiving, seven rushing and three punt returns. That total is tied for third most among all players in his draft class and tied for the most among wide receivers in the 2013 class.

RB Todd Gurley is the fourth player in Rams history to win Offensive Rookie of the Year honors, joining QB Sam Bradford (2010), RB Jerome Bettis (1993) and RB Eric Dickerson (1983).

In Week 15 against Tampa Bay, Gurley joined Hall of Famers Bettis and Dickerson as the only players in Rams history to rush for 1,000 yards as rookies.

With 10 touchdowns, Gurley passed Bettis’ rookie number in that category, although he fell well short of Dickerson’s NFL rookie record of 18. However, Gurley, who missed the first two games of the season while recovering from a college knee injury, nearly matched Bettis’ rookie yards per carry average and finished ahead of Dickerson’s.

Here’s a look at how Gurley’s overall numbers compare to Bettis and Dickerson.

IN GOOD COMPANYAs a rookie, RB Todd Gurley showed a penchant for getting in the end zone.

Gurley scored 10 touchdowns in 2015 - all rushing. Gurley’s performance marks the first time since 2006 that any Rams player has reached double digits in touchdowns.

Among Rams, only Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson scored more touchdowns as a rookie than Gurley.

In the last 10 seasons, Gurley is one of just nine rookie running backs to score 10 or more touchdowns during their first NFL season. Of those nine, only three of those players did so with fewer carries than Gurley.

A NOSE FOR THE END ZONE

RB Todd Gurley

WR Tavon Austin

TAVON AWESOMERams Head Coach Jeff Fisher announced at his season-ending press conference that Case Keenum will enter the offseason as the team’s 2016 starting quarterback after posting a 3-2 record in 2015.

Keenum completed 60.8 percent of his passes and threw four touchdowns and just one interception. He was sacked just four times in five starts.

Over his last seven starts, Keenum is 5-2. After the Rams dropped Keenum’s first start with the franchise - a Week 11 contest in Baltimore - the Texas native led the team to consecutive wins over Detroit, Tampa Bay and Seattle before falling to San Francisco in the finale. He started the final two games of the 2014 campaign for Houston and won both contests - home games over Baltimore and Jacksonville.

Keenum was particularly impressive in the win over Tampa Bay as he recorded single-game career highs in completion percentage (82.4) and passer rating (158.0) while tossing a pair of touchdown passes, including a 60-yarder to WR Kenny Britt, under the play calling of then-interim Offensive Coordinator Rob Boras.

A University of Houston alum, Keenum spent his first two NFL seasons with the team that shares his college town. He was released at the end of training camp last year and the Rams claimed him off waivers. He spent seven weeks on the team’s practice squad before injuries at the quarterback position opened the door for a return to the Texans to complete the 2014 season.

The Rams were impressed with Keenum during his time with the club last fall, so the team traded a seventh-round pick to the Texans to re-acquire him during the 2015 offseason.

In college, Keenum set NCAA records for career passing yards (18,312), touchdown passes (150) and completions (1,460).

The Los Angeles Rams entered the 2016 NFL Draft with the No. 1 overall pick, having acquired it in a historical trade with the Tennese Titans. With that pick, the Rams selected QB Jared Goff -- the 22nd quarterback taken with the first overall pick during the common draft era (since 1967). Goff currently holds 26 Cal records including career marks for passing yards (12,220), passing yards per game (329.7), TD passes (96), completions (977), passing attemps (1,569), total offense (12,086) and total plays (1,739).

Four of the Rams ensuing five picks were used on offensive skill position players, starting with TE Tyler Higbee in the fourth round. Seven picks later, the Rams took WR Pharoh Cooper -- a wide receiver and all-purpose back from South Carolina.

In the sixth round, the Rams held a trio of picks. Rams General Manager Les Snead and Head Coach Jeff Fisher used the first on TE Temarrick Hemingway. The South Carolina State product stands at 6-5, 210 pounds and compliments Higbee’s size (6-6, 250 pounds). With the 190th overall pick, Los Angeles drafted their first and only defensive player, LB Josh Forrest, followed by WR Mike Thomas with their final pick of 2016.

FIRST CLASSDespite injuries and youth along the offensive line, the Rams were among the NFL’s best in 2015 when it came to protecting the quarterback.

The Rams allowed just 18 sacks, which was the fewest in the NFL a season ago.

The Rams cut their 2014 sack total by more than half. In 2014, the Rams gave up 47 sacks as a team, which tied for the eighth most in the league.

C Tim Barnes and LT Greg Robinson are the only two players on the line to start every game for the team, and they both did so at the same position every game. Veteran Garrett Reynolds entered the starting lineup in Week 5 when Rodger Saffold suffered a season-ending shoulder injury, and his versatility was key. Reynolds started at right tackle as well as both guard positions.

Rookie Rob Havenstein, a second-round pick, started 12 games at right tackle. Third-round pick Jamon Brown anchored the left guard spot before an ankle injury ended his season in Week 10, and rookies Cody Wichmann (six starts) and Andrew Donnal saw action as well.

PROTECTION PLAN

C Tim Barnes, LG Garrett Reynolds and LT Greg Robinson are part of an offensive line that has been

among the NFL’s best at protecting the quarterback this season.

The Rams used four of their first seven selections in the 2015 draft on offensive linemen, and their young linemen gained invaluable experience while setting the groundwork for the future.

In total, Rams rookies accounted for 31 starts on the offensive line, which was nearly 40 percent of all starts. The youngsters were part of a group that allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL while finishing seventh in rushing yards per game.

Rob Havenstein, a massive 6-8 tackle from Wisconsin, was the team’s second round (57th overall) pick, and he started 13 games on the right side. Havenstein was not whistled for a penalty and according to coaches, he did not allow a sack.

Third-round pick Jamon Brown started nine games at guard before suffering a season-ending injury against the Bears. Sixth-round pick Cody Wichmann stepped in for Brown and started the final seven games.

Iowa’s Andrew Donnal (-119th overall) started one game at guard and one at right tackle before a knee injury caused him to miss the final month. In addition, T Darrell Williams made the team as an undrafted free agent and saw action on offense and special teams, while supplemental draft pick Isaiah Battle will be in the mix in 2016.

The Rams only added four veterans during the 2015 offseason, but one of the biggest moves they made involved re-signing one of their own.

WR Kenny Britt led the Rams with 681 receiving yards in 2015. His average of 18.2 yards per catch ranked second in the NFL.

Britt finished the season strong as he scored on a 60-yard touchdown pass in Week 15, a 28-yard toss in Week 16 and caught a 54-yard pass to set up a Rams field goal in the final game.

Britt’s eighth NFL season is his third with the Rams. He spent his first five professional campaigns with the Tennessee Titans, where he played three seasons under Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher.

RB/KR Benny Cunningham was once again a jack of all trades for the Rams in 2015.

In the team’s Week 15 win over Tampa Bay, Cunningham opened the game with a 44 yard kick return, and six plays later, the Rams capped their first drive of the night with a Tavon Austin touchdown to give them a quick lead.

Later, Cunningham returned a kickoff 102 yards. It was the fifth-longest kickoff return in Rams history and the fourth-longest in the NFL last season. He was named the NFC Special Teams Player of The Week for his efforts.

Cunningham played on all “four core” special teams units (kickoff return and cover, punt return and cover). He also had a key role on offense as the team’s third down back. Of his 26 catches, 16 came on third down. He finished fourth on the team in receptions and receiving yards.

With every touchdown catch, TE Lance Kendricks moves closer to Rams history.

In the team’s Week 11 game at Baltimore, Kendricks caught a 30-yard touchdown pass from Case Keenum for his second scoring strike of the year.

The score was his 15th career touchdown catch, and he’s now tied for third in franchise history among tight ends in the category. Kendricks tied Troy Drayton (14, 1993-96) in Week 1 and is now just three behind the franchise leader, Damone Johnson (18, 1986-92).

Throughout his first five seasons with the Rams, Kendricks has been a reliable target. He finished the 2012 season with 42 receptions for 519 yards and four touchdowns.

Rams DT Aaron Donald can put his game up against anyone’s this season.

While the absence of fellow Pro Bowler Robert Quinn allowed teams to pay more attention to Donald over the second half of the 2015 season, the two-time Pro Bowler hasn’t seen any decline in his production.

Among all NFL defensive linemen, regardless of position, Donald is tied

for sixth in sacks (11.0) and is second in both tackles for loss (22) and quarterback hits. Donald is the only interior lineman who ranks in the top five this season in tackles for loss or quarterback hits.

A PRODUCTIVE PRESENCERams DT Aaron Donald has quickly established himself as one of the NFL’s most dominant interior defenders.

Donald was tied for seventh in the NFL in sacks last season and tied for first among all NFL 4-3 defensive tackles.

Donald earned Pro Bowl honors for a second-straight year thanks in part to a stat line that is among the best in the NFL.

Donald’s 22 tackles for loss are the second most among all NFL defensive linemen, regardless of position. His 33 quarterback hits also rank second.

If you combine Donald’s sacks, tackles for loss and quarterback hits, he totaled 66 impact plays last season. No other 4-3 defensive tackle is close to that number.

Mark Barron entered the Rams’ starting lineup in Week 5, and he made his impact felt. He lead the Rams with 135 tackles on the year.

Barron started the final 11 games of the season and reached double digits in tackles in eight of them.

In the team’s Week 7 win over Cleveland, Barron recorded a career-high 19 tackles, which is the most by any Ram in a game since 2001. Coaches also credited Barron with two tackles

for loss, two forced fumbles and a quarterback hit against the Browns.

While Barron played safety in college and during his first three NFL seasons, he was deployed much like a linebacker in the Rams’ current scheme. When LB Alec Ogletree suffered an injury in Week 4, Barron stepped in to the starting position on the weak side.

Prior to Ogletree’s injury, Barron was a regular contributor in the Rams’ sub packages on defense. In addition to his team-leading tackle total, Barron finished with five QB pressures, eight QB hits, three forced fumbles and five passes defensed.

Barron entered the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who drafted him with the seventh overall pick in 2012. He was traded to the Rams midway through the 2014 campaign in exchange for a fourth and sixth round picks in the 2015 draft. Barron played in nine games with the Rams in 2014 and had 3.0 sacks.

WS Mark Barron

CB Trumaine Johnson was among the NFL’s best cornerbacks in 2015 as he enjoyed a breakout season.

Johnson tied for third in the league with seven interceptions on the year and was second among all NFL cornerbacks. He had picks in three of the Rams’ final four games, including a Week 14 win in which he returned an interception 58 yards for a touchdown. Johnson shadowed Lions WR Calvin Johnson throughout the game and helped hold the Pro Bowler to just one reception in the game.

In addition, Johnson posted a career-high 12 pass breakups and tallied 69 tackles. The 2015 season marked the second-consecutive year in which he led the Rams in interceptions.

Johnson’s 15 career interceptions are tied for the fourth most since he entered the NFL, and he has more picks than any other player in his draft class.

A TRU PLAYMAKERON THE MARK

It’s safe to say Aaron Donald has turned in the best season ever by a Rams interior defensive lineman.

Last year, Donald became just the third Rams defensive tackle to reach double digits in sacks since the NFL began recognizing the stat in 1982. He completed the season one sack shy of surpassing D’Marco Farr for the most in franchise history by a DT.

Donald finished his 2015 season tied for the NFL lead in sacks among 4-3 defensive tackles, and over the last two years, no other defensive tackle has more sacks than the Rams’ two-time Pro Bowler.

Throughout the season, the Rams defense set their offense up by taking away the football.

On the year, the Rams forced 26 turnovers - tied for 10th most in the NFL - and scored following 15 of them.

Of the Rams’ 280 points scored, 80 came following a defensive takeaway, meaning 28.6 percent of their total points were the result of turnovers. That was the fourth highest percentage of any team in the NFL.

The Rams had 12 interceptions as a team and were fourth in the NFL with 13 fumble recoveries. Here’s a look at how the Rams cashed in:

The Rams were among the NFL’s top defenses on third down last season, and their ability to get off the field was one of the strengths of the defense.

Opponents converted just 35.7 percent of their third downs against the Rams last season, the sixth best total in the NFL during the 2015 season.

The Rams held their opponents to 33 percent or less on third down in nine-of-16 games this season and had a eight-week streak until that number snapped two in Week 13 against Arizona.

LEADING THE WAY

Both against the run and the pass, the Rams defense was among the NFL’s best in 2015 when it came to making plays behind the line of scrimmage.

The Rams finished 11th in the NFL in sacks (41), and according to StatsPass.com, the Rams recorded an NFL-best 132 total negative plays - 82 against the run and 50 verses the pass. In addition to leading the league in total negative plays, the Rams tied for the lead in negative runs.

StatsPass.com gave S Mark Barron 15.5 “stuffs,” which tied with J.J. Watt for the NFL lead in the category.

COUNT IT ALL FOR LOSS

DT Michael Brockers’ fourth NFL season was his most productive.

Brockers finished the year with career highs in tackles (74) and tackles for loss (12). His tackle for loss total tied for third among all Rams.

Brockers had 3.0 sacks this season and 14.5 for his career.

In Week 8 against San Francisco, he recorded his second sack of the season and tallied two tackles for loss. His first tackle for loss resulted in two points for the Rams as he helped corral RB Mike Davis in the end zone for a safety.

In Week 1, he led the Rams with 13 tackles, an enormous number for an interior lineman.

His final stop against Seattle was perhaps his best as Brockers and Aaron Donald teamed up to drop RB Marshawn Lynch for a loss on 4th-and-1 to clinch the victory.

Brockers is one-of-five Rams defensive linemen who joined the team as a first-round draft pick. He was an All-Rookie selection by the Pro Football Writers of America in 2012.

BROCKERS BRINGIN’ IT

DE William Hayes provided the Rams with a “super sub” throughout his first three seasons with the team. He became a regular starter midway through the 2015 season and was a big reason why the Rams finished in the top 10 in sacks once again.

Hayes posted a career-high 3.0 sacks in the team’s Week 16 win at Seattle and finished the year with 5.5.

He recorded 41 QB pressures on the season, second among Rams to only DT Aaron Donald. In Week 7 against Cleveland, he posted 2.0 sacks and forced two fumbles. Hayes has 21.5 sacks in 62 games with the Rams and 29.5 in his career.

After posting a career-high 7.0 sacks in 2012, Hayes was a free agent but chose to stay with

the Rams. He began his career with the Tennessee Titans and rejoined Head Coach Jeff Fisher in 2012 shortly after Fisher took the Rams job.

Rams K Greg “The Leg” Zuerlein is one of the most prolific long-distance kickers in NFL history.

In Week 9 at Minnesota, he broke his own team record with a 61-yard second-quarter field goal. In the process, he became just the second kicker in NFL history to make two 60 yard field goals in a career, joining Sebastian Janikowski. Coincidentally, Rams Special Teams Coordinator John Fassel held the same position with the Raiders when Janikowski accomplished his feat.

Zuerlein owns five of the six longest field goals made in Rams history, and his 61-yard kick in Week 9 at Minnesota was the longest in the NFL during the 2015 season.

With 399 career points scored, Zuerlein ranks ninth in Rams history in the category.

Zuerlein has been one of the best deep ball kickers in the league since he arrived in 2012. In Week 2 at Washington, Zuerlein made a 52-yard kick. With 16 career kicks from 50 yards or more, Zuerlein ranks second in team history in field goals of 50 yards or more. He passed Josh Brown last season to move into second. He’s tied for the third-most 50-yard field goals in the NFL since 2012.

Kickers have made only 15 field goals of 60 yards or more in NFL history, and Zuerlein has two of them.

GREG THE LEGJohnny Hekker turned in one of the best seasons by a punter in NFL history, and he was rewarded with his second career Pro Bowl selection.

Hekker led the NFL in net average (43.7), gross average (47.9) and punts downed inside the opponents’ 20 yard-line (41). Since the NFL began tracking inside 20 punts in 1976, Hekker is the first player to lead the league in gross, net and inside 20s in the same season.

Hekker’s net average is the fourth-highest single-season total in league history. He also owns the NFL record in the category, a number that was established in 2013. His 47.9 gross average set a new career high and is the second-highest in franchise history.

Impressively, Hekker also led the league in number of punts with 96, which makes his consistency in leading the league in net and gross punting even more impressive. He’s one of just four punters ever to punt more than 80 times in a season and net 42 yards or more per punt.

In 64 career games, Hekker has recorded a net average of 45.0 yards or more on 21 different occasions. He netted 45.0 or more eight times in 2015, including a career high of 49.8 in the team’s Week 8 win over San Francisco. His net average was 48.0 a week earlier against Cleveland. He had a 45.1 net average in Week 4 at Arizona, a 46.1 net average in Week 2 at Washington, and in Week 10, he posted 47.8 against Chicago. In the season finale at San Francisco, he netted 47.8 yards per punt.

He was named the NFC’s Special Teams Player of the Month for October after leading the conference with a net average of 44.3 yards per punt during that time frame.

Hekker’s 41 punts inside opponents’ 20 yard line set a new franchise record in the category. He accomplished that number while having only six of his 96 punts hit the end zone for touchbacks.

Hekker is a former high school quarterback, and the Rams put his passing skills to use on a regular occasion. In Week 5 at Green Bay, he completed a 20-yard pass to Cody Davis on a fake punt. In four NFL seasons, Hekker is 6-of-10 passing on fakes, including a touchdown pass on a fake field goal as a rookie in 2012.

Late in the 2014 season, the Rams rewarded P Johnny Hekker with a new six-year contract that will keep him with the team through the 2020 season. Hekker earned the contract by becoming one of the NFL’s most dangerous special teams weapons.

Raynard Collins has been a die-hard NFL fan ever since he sat glued to the first “Monday Night Football” kickoff 46 years ago this September.

He was so thrilled to see the Rams return to Los Angeles this year he joined thousands who waited in lines for hours Fri-day for a shot at work in their football stadium.

“It would be awesome. A blessing. A dream job,” said Collins, 50, an unemployed resident of Koreatown. “‘Cause I’d get to be around the game — the smell of the turf, the whiff of the stadium, the sound and fury and passion for the game.”

The L.A. Rams job fair at the Expo Center, hosted by independent contractor Contemporary Services Corp. in tandem with the South Los Angeles WorkSource Center, initially promised more than 1,500 jobs at Los Angeles Memorial Coli-seum, including ticket-taking, stadium-ushering, guest and parking services and security.

That soon ballooned to 5,000 job openings across Los Angeles County, each job paying from $10 to $11.50 an hour, city and CSC officials said.

To get them, job seekers lined up for as long as five hours in the blazing sun for a chance to interview inside the historic center once known as the Los Angeles Swimming Stadium. The job fair ran from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“This is a pretty exciting day,” said Los Angeles City Councilman Curren Price, who turned out in green-and-white seer-sucker to help promote a Central Avenue Jazz Festival this weekend. “It’s an opportunity to get a job.

“We need ’em, we need ‘em,” he added, noting the double-digit unemployment in his South L.A. district. “I think they’re making an effort to base them in the community, which is good.”

The Rams, returning after a 22-year absence, open their preseason on Aug. 13 at the Coliseum against the Dallas Cow-boys. Their first regular season home game will be played Sept. 18 against the Seattle Seahawks.

As hip hop blared Friday from Power 106 FM, the stadium job seekers lined up across from the historic plunge. Then lined up again to enter the three-story building. Then lined up for the application processing. And, finally, queued for one-on-one job interviews.

Some came in crisp shirts and ties, others untucked shirts and tennis shoes. Some arrived in professional pantsuits, oth-ers turned out in low-cut blouses.

But for Carlos “Ceedee” Centeno, only one interview garment would do.

“I’ll be the best usher because of my charismatic personality,” said Centeno, 24, an unemployed warehouse worker, pull-ing from a backpack a Los Angeles Rams No. 30 jersey, like the one worn by rookie running back Todd Gurley. “We need to show how passionate we are about our sports.

“And give it that L.A. pride.”

For most, it was having to sweat for hours on the Soboroff Sports Field, atop hot plastic grass, that wilted a potential job opportunity.

“I thought I’d taken the wrong turn from hell,” said Marlo Ollie of Los Angeles, in an olive shirt and tie, after a five-hour wait.

Phyllis Collins (no relation to Raynard), was a full-time nanny and community college student hoping to capitalize on her Sunday usher expertise at West Los Angeles Church of God in Christ. What better than to segue from ushering for God to ushering for the L.A. Rams?

“I’d be a good usher,” declared Collins, a grandmother from South Los Angeles. “That’s what I do. I’ve been standing here for 4 1/2 hours — so I really hope I get a job.”

hoping to land a security gig, did.

“I did great,” said Dinkins, who grew up in Lake View Terrace, with a wide smile. In his hand was a “Congratulations” pa-per. “They gave me a green slip — and a job. I’ll try to work USC campus security. Or L.A. Rams events.

“I’m so ready, for whatever life brings my way. I’m ready for the Rams, naturally.”

Ada Mendoza, decked out in Rams cap and jersey and clutching a stuffed “Rampage” doll, was among the first in line to see the Rams open training camp on Saturday at UC Irvine.

Her husband, Frank, a self-described lifelong fan, and their 17-year-old son, Anthony, also were there, along with hun-dreds of other fans who arrived in the morning for the Rams’ afternoon practice.

“I’m a diehard fan,” said Ada Mendoza, who added that she was looking forward to seeing players such as running back Todd Gurley, receiver Tavon Austin and quarterback Jared Goff.

The Rams’ return to Southern California for the first time in more than 20 years has ignited interest in a team that left after the 1994 season.

From old and new fans alike.

Frank Mendoza, 49, grew up in Whittier watching Rams games with his father and collecting team memorabilia. He moved to Orange County about 10 years ago. “Now, they’re in my backyard,” he said. “We had to be here and we thought there would be a mass of people, so we had to be here first.”

Said Anthony: “There’s a lot of players I want to see — Robert Quinn, Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers.”

Nicholas Manzella of Riverside said he had been a Rams fan since “the Fearsome Foursome” days, when defensive line-men Deacon Jones and Merlin Olsen and quarterback Roman Gabriel starred for the Rams at the Coliseum.

“I never thought this would happen,” he said of the Rams’ return. “I cried when I found out they were coming back.

“It was so hard to see them leave because they were my favorite team. My heart was there, but it was just hard to see them in another city.

“I counted down the days to come see them.”

So did Michael Rahon, 17, David Martin, 17, Ray Khoury, 17, and Connor Cobos, 15, of Placentia. The friends came to experience NFL football for the first time in Southern California.

“We had to be here,” Rahon said. “The NFL is back.”

This whole business about the Rams returning to Los Angeles?

It just got real.

On a cloudless, scorching Saturday afternoon at UC Irvine, it filled bleachers surrounding two makeshift football fields with nearly 10,000 folks who sprinted to their seats early and stood screaming for autographs late.

All for a Rams event that had no score, no statistics and no drama.

It was just a practice. It was just a dummy-thumping, horn-rattling, saggy-sweats practice.

But this being the Rams’ first training-camp practice as a Los Angeles franchise in 22 years, it was horned gold.

“The people in St. Louis were like, we can’t root for the Rams because we’ll all be at the beach . . . well, I guess not,” said Randy Troy, a member of the former Bring Back the Los Angeles Rams group and one of many fans wearing a sweaty jersey and a sunscreen smile.

They cheered calisthenics. They cheered field-goal drills. They cheered dudes making flying interceptions of intentionally lofted passes that they were supposed to intercept.

“This whole scene is amazing,’’ said former Rams quarterback Jim Everett, watching from under a tent behind the end zones.

As it grew hotter, it grew more amazing. The fans audibly gasped when rookie quarterback Jared Goff lost consecutive fumbles on bad snaps and let loose with a loud expletive. The fans then screeched after he threw an interception. When a couple of fans began derisively chanting his name — “Ja-red, Ja-red” — they suffered the indignant stares of the masses and quickly quieted.

“This is unbelievable,’’ said former Rams offensive tackle Jackie Slater, also hanging out under a tent. “It’s unbelievable how much everything has changed.”

At one point, so many fans were crowding the railing to get closer to the players, a security guard barked, “Move from the bench line and come back to your seats.”

Nobody listened. They hung on the railing throughout the final drills, then crowded it after practice to roar at the departing players as if the padded, slick-faced behemoths were walking a red carpet at Hollywood and Highland.

“To walk out here and see the stands like this, we are super blessed to be there,” said Rams punter Johnny Hekker. “Sometimes you put in hours and hours of work and there’s nobody there. Then you see something like this, we are so appreciative, we’re just soaking it all in.”

This whole business about the Rams returning to Los Angeles just got real, so real that some early truths about these Rams have become immediately obvious.

Even if they are as lousy as everyone thinks they will be, they are going to have a rollicking honeymoon here. Even more than wanting them to win, it seems fans are just thrilled to see them show up. This feeling could be stretched out with each wave of new fans that enters the Coliseum throughout the season. It was a feeling that dominated the stands Satur-day on a basically dull sports afternoon that offered nothing more than newness.

“You want to see the logo with L.A. on it, you want to see players wearing the L.A. uniform and competing, you just want it to sink in, that’s why many of us came here,” said Andre Jeanbart, another member of the Bring Back the Los Angeles Rams group and one of many fans who drove several hours to sit in 85-degree heat and watch guys play catch.

The other truth is that even when the interest in the Rams begins to wane, which it surely will eventually do if the losing overwhelms the curiosity, the franchise will be carried by the power of the NFL.

Much to the surprise of fans who have only ever watched USC or UCLA football practice, this wasn’t just a workout, it was an NFL production.

There were tented attractions set up around the edges of the field, stands selling everything from shaved ice to kettle corn, giant bouncy houses for kids and a memorabilia shop for the die-hards. Fans could buy a hot dog for $4, bottled water for $2.50, and a Goff jersey for $149.99.

The entire event, which will be repeated at 15 more open-to-the-public practices this summer — free admission with $10 parking — felt like a small-town company picnic surrounding gladiators engaged in this country’s most popular sport. Even though no outside food was allowed in the stands, guards relented to allow some old-school Rams fans to bring water-melons to wear on their heads.

The NFL wasn’t like this when it left town, huh? What a difference a two-decade drought makes.

“Looking seriously at this, comparing this to the 1990s, the NFL has grown leaps and bounds,” Everett said, glancing out to the fields. “This is what it is. You’re seeing the growth of the NFL right here, right in front of us today, this is how they roll.”

And so a team that hasn’t made the playoffs in 12 seasons will roll into late summer underneath the sort of fire usually reserved for champions. It is their job to make it last.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do, a long way to go with the football team, but the atmosphere is certainly going to help,” Coach Jeff Fisher said. “It will help them focus, help them to prepare. It’s different. It’s very good for them.”

It’s real.

Alec Ogletree spent the off-season preparing for his new role as the Rams’ middle linebacker, studying tape and getting into the best shape of his pro career.

He did it while moving with the franchise from St. Louis to Southern California and while readying for an even more impor-tant transition:

Ogletree became a father a week ago, he and his wife welcoming a son they named Austin.

“It’s definitely a lot,” he said after Sunday’s workout at UC Irvine. “With moving, changing positions to having a baby. It’s a lot.”

Ogletree, 24, thus far appears to have made a smooth move from weakside linebacker to the middle, where he has been entrusted with replacing veteran James Laurinaitis.

During off-season training, teammates and coaches lauded Ogletree for the work he put in to learn the entire defense and assume the main leadership role.

“It’s been seamless,” Coach Jeff Fisher said Sunday when asked about Ogletree’s transition.

Fisher added that despite a busy off-season, Ogletree posted the best overall times for defensive players in conditioning tests.

Of course, there is no way of knowing whether the Rams made a wise decision to turn the defense over to Ogletree until they start playing games. That’s when Ogletree will be forced to recognize other teams’ schemes, line up teammates and make plays.

The Rams open the exhibition season Aug. 13 against the Dallas Cowboys at the Coliseum. They have three other exhibi-tions before the Sept. 12 opener against the San Francisco 49ers on “Monday Night Football.”

Ogletree, the 30th pick in the 2013 draft, appeared to be on his way to a breakout season in 2015 before he suffered a season-ending ankle injury against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4.

The Rams released Laurinaitis and defensive end Chris Long to clear salary-cap space and make room for younger lead-ers to emerge.

“A lot of people are just going to have to make a lot more plays to make up for those guys,” defensive tackle Aaron Donald said last week.

The 6-foot-2, 245-pound Ogletree will be flanked by Akeem Ayers on the strong side and Mark Barron on the weakside.

Ogletree credited teammates for easing his transition to the middle.

“It helps me out a lot that most of the guys have been here,” he said, adding, “so you don’t have to harp on learning the playbook all day and learning positions.”

But Ogletree sounded most excited about embracing fatherhood.

He has lately been limited to Facetime updates, and said his infant son already was outfitted with plenty of Rams and University of Georgia gear.

“It’s a life-changing experience,” he said of becoming a father. “It’s something that you really can’t explain until you have your own kids and go through the feeling.”

IRVINE >> Trumaine Johnson glanced skyward after he completed the third practice of his fifth NFL training camp. On a warm Monday late morning, the wise pro sought out a shady spot for an interview.

“Big vet, huh?” Johnson said with a grin. “I guess you could say that. I still feel young, though.”

Johnson is 26, and his career with the Rams has included a steady progression, then one big leap out of the shade and into the spotlight. Johnson is the Rams’ highest-paid player and most experienced defensive back, and is poised to parlay what could be an awkward season into a blockbuster contract.

The Rams used their “franchise player” tag on Johnson, who otherwise would have become a free agent in March, and retained him for the 2016 season but failed to lock him up with a long-term extension.

So, Johnson will make $13.95 million this season, the team’s largest contract in terms of guaranteed money and salary-cap figure. That’s no small thing, but Johnson also enters this season with uncertainty. The Rams had hoped to sign him to an extension, but now he could become a free agent next summer.

“Of course I was thinking about it, but I’m blessed either way,” Johnson said. “For them to (franchise) tag me, it talks vol-umes, but this is my main focus right now, and I’ll wait until the year is over to handle everything else.”

Johnson, a third-round draft pick in 2012, was a part-time starter during his first three seasons but took a major step in 2015 when expected cornerback starter E.J. Gaines suffered a season-ending foot injury in training camp.

Johnson had seven interceptions and was considered a more consistent performer than Janoris Jenkins, who left the Rams in March and signed a five-year, $62.5-million contract with the New York Giants.

At this point, Johnson isn’t thinking about leaving Los Angeles. He’s set to start opposite either Gaines, Coty Sensabaugh or Lamarcus Joyner, and his first week of training camp at UC Irvine has included family members who traveled down from Johnson’s native Stockton.

“We had 10,000 fans out here the first day,” Johnson said. “To come out here and hear them cheering, it’s a blessing.”

LOS ANGELES RAMS FEATURE CLIPS

TITLE: Rookie Jared Goff shows off his arm and release to Rams and fans at training campBYLINE: Gary Klein, Los Angeles Times DATE: August 2, 2016It was only one pass, one late-practice throw.

And it seemed, for an instant, to momentarily freeze the Rams’ practice on Tuesday at UC Irvine.

Rookie quarterback Jared Goff had dropped back, stepped up to avoid the rush and zipped a spiral deep through the defense and into the hands of receiver Nelson Spruce.

It marked the first time the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft truly showed the arm and release that caused the Rams’ brain trust to trade numerous draft picks for the opportunity to select the former California standout.

Goff had displayed flashes during rookie camp workouts after the draft and during off-season and organized team activi-ties in Oxnard.

But Tuesday was the first time that the Rams were in pads.

So when Goff stepped up and delivered, the crowd in the nearby bleachers roared. And though the play came with the second-team offense operating against the second-team defense, players and coaches appeared to sense the moment.

“He made some really good throws,” Coach Jeff Fisher said of Goff, adding, “We added a little bit of noise so they had to focus in the huddle and I thought he took charge of it.

“He’s progressing well.”

Goff is attempting to supplant Case Keenum at the top of the depth chart. He will need to make plays like he did Tuesday against the first-team defense and against exhibition opponents to convince Fisher that he is capable of starting the Sept. 12 season opener against the San Francisco 49ers.

Whether it happens at the outset or during the season remains to be seen, but it is only a matter of time before Goff as-cends to become the starter.

Keenum, for his part, has looked comfortable in the role for now.

On Tuesday, he made several impressive plays, including a touchdown pass in a tight window to Brian Quick and a touch-down pass to Tavon Austin in the left corner of the end zone.

“I’m doing my job,” Keenum said. “When I’m at quarterback, I’m running the show. … It’s my huddle, my squad, my of-fense and I’m taking ownership of it.”

TITLE: Meet the Rams: Aaron Donald and Robert Quinn anchor one of the NFL’s scariest defensive linesBYLINE: By Matt Wilhalme, Los Angeles TimesDATE: August 2, 2016They call themselves the Mob Squad, which fits because they’re always taking out quarterbacks.

Actually, the nickname has a backstory rooted in Wikipedia searches, and is allegedly another name for a group of rams. Be that as it may, it still fits.

The Rams had 41 sacks last season, 11th-most in the NFL, with second-year pro Aaron Donald leading the way with 11, tied for the most by a defensive tackle in 2015.

The flock kept finding its way into the backfield of their opponents thanks to Donald and run stopping nose tackle Michael Brockers’ presence in the middle, and speed coming off the edge from pass rushers Robert Quinn and William Hayes.

The Rams allowed their opponents to convert on 34.7% of their third downs (fourth-best in the NFL) while allowing just 20.6 points per game (13th in the league).

That strength is no accident.

Since 2011, the Rams have invested three of eight first-round draft picks on their defensive line. It’s an effort that’s result-ed in four Pro Bowl appearances and two All-Pro years out of Donald and Quinn, who was named a captain on defense last year.

In all, the Rams’ defensive front, including backups, features five former first-round picks, all under the age of 26.

No. 99 DT Aaron Donald, 6-foot-1, 285 pounds

Donald, 25, has already been named an All-Pro, twice been named to the Pro Bowl and was the defensive rookie of the year in 2014.

This summer he was voted No. 14 on the NFL Network’s “NFL’s Top 100 Players of 2016.”

“Not only is he fast, he has leverage, very strong and I think he wants to fight you too,” Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels said of Donald. “That’s an offensive lineman’s nightmare.”

Donald runs through offensive linemen, spins out of blocks and swiftly ducks between players to grab running backs and quarterbacks alike.

So far, Donald has had 20 sacks, forced two fumbles, recovered another and made 117 tackles.

No. 94 DE Robert Quinn, 6-foot-4, 264 pounds

Quinn, 26, has the speed to take the long way around offensive tackles and still affect the play even if he doesn’t get to the quarterback, which he often does.

In four and a half seasons, Quinn has had 50 sacks, including 19 during his breakout 2013 campaign. He’s also forced 16 fumbles, recovered two and scored a touchdown.

In 2014, the Rams re-upped with Quinn with a six-year, $65.6-million deal, keeping him under contract through 2019.

Quinn experienced his worst season statistically last year because of injury. He had 21 tackles and five sacks in eight games before he was put on injured reserve for a back injury that ultimately required surgery.

No. 95 DE William Hayes, 6-foot-3, 278 pounds

Hayes, 31, has served as a backup for most of his career, starting just 32 of the 110 NFL games he’s appeared in since 2008. He began his career with the Tennessee Titans under Coach Jeff Fisher as a fourth-round pick out of the football factory that is Division II Winston-Salem State.

Hayes had 76 tackles with eight sacks with the Titans before he rejoined Fisher with the Rams.

He made 11 starts last season, collecting 53 tackles and 5.5 sacks. Since joining the Rams, Hayes has had 21.5 sacks

and made 158 tackles.

In March, the Rams re-signed Hayes for three more years, keeping him under contract through the 2018 season.

Curiously, Hayes has said in interviews he doesn’t believe dinosaurs ever existed. Seriously.

No. 90 NT Michael Brockers, 6-foot-5, 326 pounds

Brockers, 25, is the Rams’ run-stuffing, double-team-drawing stalwart in the middle at nose tackle.

He’s started 60 of the 61 games he’s appeared in for the Rams since he was drafted out of Louisiana State in 2012 with the 14th overall pick.

Brockers is also noteworthy because he was part of the team’s eight-player haul related to trading the No. 2 draft pick to the Washington Redskins, who subsequently drafted Robert Griffin III.

Of those acquired by the Rams, Brockers, middle linebacker Alec Ogletree and left tackle Greg Robinson are the only three still with the team. Griffin is now with the Cleveland Browns.

The Rams exercised their fifth-year option on Brockers before last season, so he’s playing under the final year of his con-tract.

He’s had 109 tackles, 14.5 sacks and two forced fumbles with one recovery since he turned pro.

No. 98 DE Quinton Coples, 6-foot-6, 290 pounds

Coples, 26, is another former first-round pick out of the 2012 draft, but he was selected by former New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, who is now with the Buffalo Bills.

Coples was selected 16th overall out of North Carolina and spent his first three seasons with the Jets before he was waived by the new regime there after appearing in nine games last season. He was picked up by the Dolphins for the rest of the season and then signed a two-year deal with the Rams this spring.

For his career, the pass rusher has had 16.5 sacks with 76 tackles, though last season he recorded just four tackles.

No. 97 Eugene Sims, 6-foot-6, 269 pounds

Sims, 30, played his entire career primarily as a backup until last season when injuries knocked out Chris Long and Rob-ert Quinn for much of the season. He made nine starts in 2015, collecting 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks, forcing a fumble and intercepting his first pass.

Sims nearly returned his pick for a touchdown, but was brought down on the three-yard line after taking the ball 42 yards toward the end zone when he caught an Aaron Donald deflection of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s pass (watch the play at the 34-second mark).

Other linemen: No. 91 DT Dominique Easley, No. 93 DT Ethan Westbrooks, No. 92 DE Cam Thomas

IRVINE >> For more than half a year now, Robert Quinn has relied on the advice of Byron Cunningham.

The Rams’ defensive end underwent back surgery last December, finally ending a season that had also been plagued by knee and hip pain. Since then, Quinn has deferred his rehab largely to Cunningham, the team’s physical therapist and as-sistant athletic trainer.

“Whatever he decides to throw at me that day, I basically do,” Quinn said. “From the first day out of surgery to now, it’s a completely different routine. What I was doing at first, I couldn’t tell you what it was.”

Today, the routine is much less complcated: Some stretching to stay mobile, and exercises to strengthen his core and back. The hope now is that all the work will get him ready in time for the Rams’ season opener on Sept. 12 — and to re-claim most of his former efficacy.

“That was not an easy thing that he went through last year,” said head coach Jeff Fisher. “A lot of hard work during the offseason. It was step by step by step.”

Quinn recorded or tied career lows in tackles (21) and sacks (five) last season, and played in just eight games after ap-pearing in 63 over the previous four years. That ill-fated campaign ended his streak of back-to-back Pro Bowls, one that included an eye-popping stat line in 2013: 19 sacks and seven forced fumbles, both of which ranked second in the NFL, as well as 57 tackles. For a defensive line already anchored by Aaron Donald, adding anything close to that level of pro-duction can terrify opposing offenses.

On Tuesday, Quinn suited up with the rest of his team as it underwent its first training camp practice in full pads. After watching from the sidelines for most of the Rams’ offseason workouts in Oxnard earlier this summer, that opportunity gave him a chance to loosen up and get a feel for his timing.

Looking ahead, however, the challenges maybe be as much mental as they are physical.

“I’ve been sitting there thinking about it,” Quinn said. “I’ve never had an injury, so this is really my first one. I don’t really know how to approach it. Every day, I’m trying to just ignore it. Just basically forget I ever had surgery. Build that true confidence.

“I just have to make sure it’s completely stable. I’m not rushing to get back and re-hurt myself.”

IRVINE – All of this relocation stuff is nothing new for Rams offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, who has done it on a near-annual basis.

Saffold’s moves haven’t been from city to city, but merely within the line, from tackle to guard to back again. The distinc-tion might seem subtle, but the skill sets are quite different and Saffold, preparing for his seventh NFL season, has be-come invaluable to the Rams because of his versatility.

During the first week of training camp at UC Irvine, Saffold moved to right tackle from left guard, where he started last sea-son. Rob Havenstein, the Rams’ usual right tackle, is dealing with a foot injury.

“It’s actually the third time around that I’ve kind of had to switch up at the last minute, before camp or before a game,” Saf-fold said. “I’m used to it. You’ve just got to take more time to work on technique, just to try to make it second nature. I’ve always got to get back on the bike and ride again.”

Saffold broke in as the Rams’ starting left tackle in 2010, then started at right guard and right tackle in 2013 and broke in at left guard in 2014. That’s where Saffold remained until last October, when he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury.

Saffold returned to action for the start of optional workouts in June, and reclaimed his spot at left guard, but when Haven-stein started camp on the physically unable to perform list, Saffold didn’t flinch.

“He has done a lot for us,” Coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday. “With Rob missing time right now, we decided before the start of camp and notified him that we would move him out to right tackle. He said, ‘Cool.’ He just loves it. He will play any position but center. So it gives us the flexibility and peace of mind, knowing that if we do have an issue, we can plug him in any place.”

Cody Wichmann, who started at left guard after Saffold’s injury last season, has reclaimed that spot, but Fisher indicated that Havenstein should be back before the start of the regular season.

Until then, the Rams are fine. The offensive line struggled in the first two days of practice, but when the team put on full shoulder pads Tuesday, the line improved. Left tackle Greg Robinson had difficulty dealing with the Rams’ fierce defensive front, but Saffold looked steady on the right side.

“Because I’ve been focused on guard for so long, it’s kind of hard to get it all gone in six weeks,” Saffold said. “Hopefully coming back will be like riding a bike, kind of like how playing tackle is now. It’s always a challenge, and I feel like I do bet-ter with challenges. Under pressure, I’m a lot better.”

IRVINE — Rookie receiver Michael Thomas was so excited for his training camp debut last weekend that he couldn’t focus on the football in flight.

“The first day back, I was moving so fast that ball was like shaking,” Thomas said. “I just told myself, ‘Yo, just calm down. Just be you.’

“I was just too excited, too anxious. I just had to tell myself to calm down and play ball.”

Thomas and several other young receivers have calmed down and played some ball this week, as the offense has opened eyes at the Los Angeles Rams training camp at UC Irvine.

Thomas reeled in the first two completions from quarterback Jared Goff during the team period Wednesday, as the rook-ies displayed some chemistry throughout practice.

“Oh yeah, we’re getting a lot of reps in together. So I feel like the chemistry is going great,” Thomas said. “Of course, there’s a lot of things we need to work on, just the timing and everything. But our chemistry is going great.”

Thomas, Westlake High graduate Nelson Spruce and Duke Williams were the latest rookie receivers to shine Wednesday, with it becoming tougher and tougher to make sense of a receiving corps under reconstruction.

The Rams finished last in the NFL in several passing categories a year ago.

“We took it personal,” fifth-year veteran receiver Brian Quick said. “We felt as a whole, as an offense, we have to do bet-ter. Point blank. We have to take responsibility for everything that we do. The numbers showed that we weren’t so good.”

The team responded by hiring coach Mike Groh to coordinate the passing game under offensive coordinator Rob Boras, using five of their six draft picks on positions involved in the passing game and adding four more undrafted free-agent receivers.

There are 12 receivers on the current 90-man roster for five, maybe six places come September.

“You have to fight every day,” Quick said. “Whatever you do in life, you have to fight for. It doesn’t matter what job you have. When I’m out here every day, I’m blessed to even be in this position to be out here. So I’m going to go harder than the day before.”

Of the 12 receivers, all but incumbents Tavon Austin, Kenny Britt and Quick are rookies or in their second year.

“It’s fun coming to work every day,” Quick said. “The room is just fun. … We make it fun. Every day we let them know how blessed they are to be there.”

Receiver Pharoh Cooper and tight end Tyler Highbee, rookies who were drafted in the fourth round in April, made an impact over the weekend.

“We just plug them in and go,” head coach Jeff Fisher said. “If you watch practice, they’re lining up with the 1s. That should tell you something.”

Spruce was on the receiving end of perhaps the biggest highlight in Tuesday’s practice.

Having gained some footing in their push to make an NFL roster, the young receiving corps is now just 10 days away from the preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys at the Coliseum.

“I’m looking forward to it real bad,” Thomas said. “I can’t even wait until the Cowboys. I’m just ready to make it happen. I’m excited to see Jared out on the field and hopefully I’m in with him and hopefully I can make plays for him.”

The nearly nine-month odyssey to return the Rams to Southern California will finally be completed later this month when the team moves into its new football headquarters at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.

Updating the project this week, Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff called the high-speed construction of the facility “a Herculean task.”

“They’re certainly on schedule, if not ahead of schedule, which gives us great comfort on moving in,” Demoff said. “We expect we’ll get the keys sometime mid to late August and start moving our stuff in. It’ll be a great home for our players.”

Demoff said Cal Lutheran University and president Chris Kimball, as well as the city of Thousand Oaks, commercial real estate firm Wilson Meany and contractor Byrom-Davey “have done a fantastic job.”

“As a credit to president Kimball, he said, ‘Whatever you need done, we’ll get done,’ “ Demoff said. “ ‘You have my full support, you have the university’s full support and the city of Thousand Oaks’ full support.’

“That really set the tone for everything that’s happened. They’ve worked tirelessly to make sure that anything we’ve needed got taken care of, that any red tape we had to cut through got cut.

“As everybody says, this is a two-year project condensed into six months, and really four months. All of our staff who’ve toured it over the past few weeks, nobody can believe what it looks like and how it’s come together. And the fields are in fantastic shape, which is perhaps the most important thing.”

The Rams are heartened that the most of the work remaining is inside the two buildings, which total 54,000 square feet.

“They’re in a good place, where everything (left) is interior,” Demoff said. “The thing that surprises people, when people think about a temporary set-up, they think trailers or it’s going to look not great, then you get in and it feels like you’re in a regular building. ModSpace designed it so you feel like you’re in a regular facility. It may not have all the bells and whistles of a modern NFL facility, but it’s a great place to train and our players will have every comfort they need to go win games.”

The Rams are scheduled to begin practicing in the facility Sept. 6, the first practice of the regular season. Demoff hinted the Rams aim to move into the facility as soon as possible and may have been willing to spend the last weeks of training camp in Thousand Oaks, if it were possible.

“If Cal Lutheran wound up ahead of schedule, then perhaps maybe after the Denver (preseason) game (on Aug. 27), we could go in there,” Demoff said. “I don’t think we will. … Maybe it will be ready sooner, maybe it won’t.”

The Rams’ agreement with Cal Lutheran is for the next two to five seasons, depending on how fast they find and construct permanent headquarters.

Hollywood Park Land Co., owned by Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke, has picked Turner Construction Co. and AECOM as general contractors overseeing construction of a 70,000-seat stadium for the NFL team, anchoring a 298-acre mixed-use sports and entertainment project in Inglewood, CA.

Between them, Turner and AECOM, picked after a review of several other construction firms, have built 17 stadiums for NFL teams and renovated 10 others, becoming the two largest builders of sports venue projects in the world over the last 15 years.

“While we will call the LA Coliseum home for the next three seasons, we are pleased to work with Turner/AECOM to build our new stadium in Inglewood,” said Kevin Demoff, chief operating officer & executive vice president of football opera-tions of the Los Angeles Rams, in noting the key milestone in the process of bringing the team back to Los Angeles after a 21 year stay in St. Louis. The venue will also showcase national and international events when it opens in 2019, Demoff noted.

Turner Construction Co. is the largest general contractor in North America, with more than 40 offices across the U.S. and Canada. The company already had a separate engagement for the past two years to provide demolition, grading and in-frastructure at the site of the former Hollywood Park racetrack. Publicly traded AECOM, a Los Angeles-based international project management and engineering company, employs more than 95,000 people worldwide and had revenue of $19 billion in fiscal 2015.

Turner President and CEO Peter Davoren said the project will be the “gold standard” for stadiums, with the current design by HKS Architects of Dallas calling for 275 luxury suites, more than 16,000 premium seats and almost 3 million square feet of usable space. The facility will also provide standing room for 27,000 spectators in addition to its seating capacity of up to 70,000.

The stadium will anchor the new Hollywood Park entertainment district in Inglewood, which will include an adjacent 6,000-seat performance venue, up to 890,000 square feet of retail and up to 300 hotel rooms. The project will also eventually include up to 780,000 square feet of office space, 2,500 residential units and 25 acres of public parks and open space.

Construction is expected to provide more than 3,500 on-site construction jobs in Inglewood and, in total, more than 10,000 jobs through completion. Two other firms are already working on the stadium project, including Legends Project Develop-ment, which is providing project management services; and Wilson Meany of San Francisco, which is managing entitle-ment and infrastructure services.

As rule, football coaches lead transient lives, moving from city to city, wherever the job takes them.

Rams Coach Jeff Fisher is a different type of nomad.

The NFL’s Houston Oilers hired Fisher in 1994 and he subsequently guided them through stops in Memphis and Nashville en route to their becoming the Tennessee Titans. In their third season after the move, the Titans reached the Super Bowl, and Fisher remained with the franchise through 2010.

The Rams hired Fisher before the 2012 season, and he has served as an experienced point man in the franchise’s return to Los Angeles after more than two decades in St. Louis.

Fisher, 58, is the only head coach in NFL history to be part of two franchise moves and the only one to oversee two teams in five cities.

“I’ve declined several opportunities over the years to do a book on the move from Houston to Nashville,” Fisher said. “Maybe when I’m done, I’ll do a book on both.”

The latest chapter in Fisher’s career started last week as the Rams opened training camp at UC Irvine — after a move from St. Louis to Los Angeles . . . after workouts in Oxnard . . . and before another move to Cal Lutheran, the team’s temporary headquarters in Thousand Oaks, as the franchise prepares for a 2019 transition to a new stadium and home in Inglewood.

Fisher went 7-8-1, 7-9, 6-10 and 7-9 in his first four seasons with the team and critics wonder why the Rams did not turn to a new leader to start a new era. The Rams have not had a winning season since 2003 and last made the playoffs in 2004.

But former Titans players who transitioned from Houston to Tennessee under Fisher know he’s the one they’d want direct-ing the moving vans.

“He’s the perfect guy to do it,” said Blaine Bishop, an Oilers and Titans safety from 1993 to 2001. “He’s a players’ coach and great at communication. If anybody can do it twice, he’s the man.”

Said tight end Frank Wycheck, who played under Fisher from 1995 to 2003: “There is no one better than Jeff to handle that transition. He just has a great personality and a great way to build up your confidence, and doesn’t allow that kind of noise to get in the locker room.”

After the NFL approved the Rams’ move from St. Louis in January this year, Fisher led a March team meeting in Manhat-tan Beach and prepared the players for nine weeks of off-season workouts and organized team activities in Oxnard in April, May and June.

They will be in Irvine for about six weeks before moving to Cal Lutheran, where they are constructing a temporary practice facility that will be home for at least the next three seasons. A permanent practice facility also is expected to be built in the region.

The Rams will play the next three seasons at the Coliseum before moving into a $2.6-billion stadium in Inglewood.

“I don’t think a head coach could have handled this year better than Jeff has handled it,” said Kevin Demoff, the Rams’ chief operating officer and vice president of football operations. “He helped us prioritize . . . Having Jeff gave us a blueprint of how we wanted to do it and made the process that much easier.”

There was nothing easy about Fisher’s first move with the Oilers, who were owned by the late Bud Adams.

Fisher said he is forever indebted to the Adams family for giving him the opportunity to become a head coach, but there are differences in the way Adams and Rams owner Stan Kroenke approached — and funded — the moves.

The Oilers set up temporary quarters in Bellevue, Tenn., outside Nashville. Their facility included a compound of dilapi-dated trailers.

“When Bud decided that he wasn’t going to put up a satellite dish at our temporary facility because he wanted it at his home,” Fisher said, “and I had to run out to a sports bar and see if I could get a satellite feed of an upcoming opponent and copied on VHS because we didn’t have an advance scouting department — it’s a little different.

“The money, the investment that Stan has made on each stop along the way, has been great from our standpoint. Just to be first class and making sure that the players have every opportunity to be successful.”

Said two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Aaron Donald: “He did it before and knew what to expect, how to handle things so it made our jobs easier.”

It will be “kind of cool” to have coached two teams in five cities, Fisher said, but he is focused on getting the Rams ready for the season and is aware of expectations that come with playing in Los Angeles. Being the only coach to help move two NFL franchises is more an answer to a trivia question than a highlight on a resume.

The Oilers left Houston after the 1996 season. They played their home games in 1997 at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, about 200 miles from where they trained outside Nashville.

“In the first preseason game, there was a dude in a tank top holding a turkey leg, a Fred Flintstone brontosaurus-sized turkey leg,” Wycheck recalled. “I was thinking, ‘What in the world is this guy eating?’”

Crowds were so small, Wycheck recalled, that before games an assistant coach could chat with his wife seated 20 rows up from the field.

And the Oilers did not enjoy much of a home-field advantage.

It rained during one game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Many in what was already a pro-Steelers crowd donned yellow rain jackets.

“It looked like it was all Steelers fans,” Bishop said. “It felt like they ( were playing at home.”

The Oilers flew to their games in Memphis, but family members had to drive back and forth.

“I would have dinner ready for my family in the kitchen,” Fisher said, “before they were done with their drive back.”

The 1998 season was not much better. The Oilers played home games at Vanderbilt University in Nashville and finished 8-8 for the second year in a row.

“Fisher just never really brought up moving or excuses,” Bishop said. “We were a middle-of-the road team in that span and he just kept us focused and did a good job of drafting.”

The Tennessee Oilers were rechristened the Titans in 1999 and moved into brand new Adelphia Coliseum. They won the AFC title before losing to the Rams in the Super Bowl. Fisher’s popularity soared as the team put together consecutive 13-3 seasons.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a coach be such a rock star in the city,” Wycheck said.

Fisher coached 14 seasons in Tennessee before he and the Titans parted ways after a 6-10 finish in 2010.

A year later the Rams hired Fisher, who has ended up in the middle of another move. This time, Fisher has an advantage beyond his experiences with the Oilers/Titans — he has returned home. Fisher grew up in the San Fernando Valley and played defensive back at USC.

“The fact that we didn’t have to introduce him to Los Angeles has been a big plus,” Demoff said. “You don’t get questions like, ‘How far is that from here? How long is it going to take to get there?’

“Being a native and having grown up here makes a big difference.”

The players have noticed.

“He did a great job explaining everything,” rookie receiver Pharoh Cooper said upon his arrival at Irvine this week. “We knew we were going to have to do a lot of moving when we first got drafted. He’s handled it pretty well.”

Said two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Aaron Donald: “He did it before and knew what to expect, how to handle things so it made our jobs easier.”

It will be “kind of cool” to have coached two teams in five cities, Fisher said, but he is focused on getting the Rams ready for the season and is aware of expectations that come with playing in Los Angeles. Being the only coach to help move two NFL franchises is more an answer to a trivia question than a highlight on a resume.

“I asked someone, ‘Does that give me a chance to get in the Hall of Fame?’” Fisher said, laughing. “I don’t want to tell you what their answer was.”

It was pretty obvious.

“We’ve got to win,” he said.

IRVINE >> The Rams were in full pads for Monday’s training-camp practice, but with defensive tackle Aaron Donald, sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish.

Donald hardly needs them. Layer upon layer of muscle shelters his bones, and during the offseason, Donald only got stronger. In an attempt to build off his first two stellar NFL seasons, Donald didn’t drop any weight but added bulk and said he hoped to keep his body fat under 10 percent.

Already considered one of the NFL’s top defensive tackles, Donald enters his third NFL season poised to lead a Rams defensive line that underachieved last year, in part because of injuries, but could be fierce.

“I’ve been working on my technique, trying to split double teams a lot better and holding double teams,” Donald said Mon-day at UC Irvine. “I’m just trying to clean up little things, and just working.”

Donald totaled 11 sacks last season, tied for most in the NFL among defensive tackles, and followed up his 2014 Defen-sive Player of the Year effort with a second consecutive Pro Bowl selection.

There’s no slowing down. Donald, listed at 6-foot-1, 285 pounds, has a rock-solid physique but joked that he had “a little gut”Donald last season. Donald said that offseason work had lowered his body fat to 10 percent in June but that he hoped it would be lower by the start of the season.

If so, opponents could be in trouble. Donald lines up next to end William Hayes, who took over as a starter seven weeks into last season and played well. The other end is Robert Quinn, who missed half of last season with a back injury but seemingly will be at 100 percent for the start of training camp.

Donald said he carefully watched last year’s Denver Broncos, who won the Super Bowl largely thanks to a talented defen-sive front, and said he drew motivation and encouragement.

“We can go down as one of the best in history,” Donald said. “With the talent we’ve got on this defensive line and the way they play, we can be one of those (top) defensive lines for sure.”

That’s important, because Donald increasingly will draw attention from opposing offensive lines. Multiple times Monday, he spoke of his need to occupy, if not split and beat, multiple defenders at the line of scrimmage.

Teammates also have talked about their need to support Donald, who recorded 11 of the Rams’ 41 sacks last season.

“I don’t think it’s just me making plays on the defensive line. It’s so many of us,” Donald said. “All of those guys have been making plays before I even got here. We just work good together and we all make plays.”

Rams practice is over, but not for John Fassel. The angular special teams coach is running with knees high from one end zone to the other, then dropping to the turf for crunches as the grandstands empty at UC Irvine.

Typically, there’s still plenty of fuel to burn for Fassel, 42, who has the energy of someone half his age, and a nickname — “Bones” — that accurately describes his roughly 0.0% body fat.

Special teams are a point of pride for the Rams, and Fassel, meticulously focused and relentlessly upbeat, is the tip of that spear. He’s a triathlete who played receiver at Pacific and Weber State, and the son of longtime NFL coach Jim Fas-sel.

“Coach Bones is one of my best coaches ever,” said returner Tavon Austin, who has run a punt back for a touchdown in each of the last three seasons. “Just his energy level. He just shows us what we’ve got to do, and lets us play.”

Sometimes, though, Fassel feels the need to intervene — and last summer that almost certainly saved a life. It was on a July evening in Manhattan Beach, where his parents have a house five blocks from the sand. Fassel, a strong swimmer, was bobbing alone on a Boogie board in the fading light when he noticed a middle-aged man flailing in the water about 50 yards to his left.

“I’m keeping my eye on him for about 30 seconds, and it was just weird,” Fassel recalled. “I don’t know if he’s swimming, but then he’s going under, then he starts splashing. I could see him close enough to see he was struggling.”

A surfer nearby also was watching the frightening situation unfold, and he and Fassel made the decision to paddle over to the man as quickly as they could.

“We got there fast,” Fassel said. “We got him and he was a breath or two away. He had no equipment, no fins, no board, couldn’t swim. He got caught in a riptide. We grabbed him, and he was almost dead weight.”

Fassel and the surfer, Jim Burton, pulled the man onto Burton’s surfboard so his head and torso were out of the water, but he was largely unresponsive and slid back into the water. They hoisted him back onto the board, kicked their way out of the riptide and got back to shore, where they were met by a team of Manhattan Beach lifeguards.

On the shore, the lifeguards and the Manhattan Beach Fire Department set up a quarantine while paramedics stabilized the man with intravenous fluids, EKG exams and medication. After working on him for about an hour, the paramedics transported him to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Fassel never got the man’s name, only that he survived.

“I think about it all the time,” said Fassel, a father of two young daughters. “I think about, if I got there too late, or nobody saw him. When I get in the ocean now, sometimes if it’s a strong current I kind of look around. Are there kids in the water? It just happened so fast.”

Of course, he doesn’t have much time these days for relaxing on the beach. He’s in his fifth season overseeing special teams for the Rams, who have largely excelled in that aspect of the game.

Two years ago, the Rams upset the Seattle Seahawks with help from a successful fake punt and a tricky punt return that led every highlight package. On the return, the Rams fooled the Seahawks into thinking the ball was heading toward Austin, who had fallen down on one side of the field. Instead, though, it was sailing on the other side of the field toward Stedman Bailey, who fielded the punt over his shoulder and raced 90 yards for a touchdown. It was Fassel who was re-sponsible for preparing the Rams units for those plays.

Rams punter Johnny Hekker has made two of the last three Pro Bowls and led the NFL last season in gross average at 47.9 yards, net average at 43.7 and punts downed inside the 20-yard line with 41. He’s the first player to lead the NFL in all three categories since the league started tracking punts inside the 20 in 1976.

Austin finished fifth in punt-return average at 11.2 yards and Benny Cunningham was fifth in kick-return average at 27.5.

Fassel was special teams coordinator for the Oakland Raiders from 2008-11, working with perennial Pro Bowl kicker Se-bastian Janikowski and punter Shane Lechler. From 2005-07, he was an assistant special teams coach with the Baltimore Ravens.

Early in his career, Fassel coached wide receivers at Bucknell, was a strength and conditioning coach for the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe and was head coach at New Mexico Highlands.

“When I was growing up,” recalled Fassel, whose father has a long history coaching in college and the pros but perhaps is best remembered as coach of the New York Giants from 1997-2003, “I was always hanging around the meeting rooms, the players’ locker room, the practice field, on the sideline on game day.

“I just grew up in that environment. It’s in my blood.”

Fassel began his college playing career in Stockton, but transferred to Weber State when Pacific dropped its football pro-gram after the 1995 season. He started his college career as a reserve quarterback but found his way onto the field after the team’s punter was sidelined because of a broken foot.

“We had no backup punter,” Fassel said, “so Coach [Chuck] Shelton said, ‘Anybody who thinks they can punt, we’re going to have a punt-off.’ I’d never punted in my life, and luckily I hit two bombs. He named me the starting punter for that Satur-day, and I punted for the rest of the season.”

The rail-thin Fassel, far more comfortable on the offensive side of the ball, still laughs about tackling a Louisiana-Lafayette player who had returned one of his punts.

“I had no idea what I was doing,” he said. “It was awesome.”

That kind of unbridled enthusiasm has made Fassel among the most beloved members of the Rams staff.

“Bones should be cloned,” General Manager Les Snead said, “so he could coach and teach every kid from Little League to middle school to high school and on up. ... We’d be a better country because of it. He’s that special.”

The coach they call Bones is long and thin as an exclamation point. Somehow, that seems just about right.

Imagine if the NFL season started with the Super Bowl.

In a sense, that’s how Saturday night’s exhibition game between the Rams and Dallas Cowboys will feel, with the Coli-seum filled to near capacity, ready to witness the first NFL snap in Los Angeles in 7,903 days.

“It will be an event,” said ESPN color analyst Jon Gruden, who will be in the booth with new Monday Night Football play-by-play man Sean McDonough. “This will be one of those ticket stubs you want to have. It’s an emotional time. For St. Louis, it’s just awful. For L.A., it’s exciting.”

So exciting, in fact, that the Rams decided to sell about 10,000 seats they don’t plan to sell for other games, bringing the capacity of the venue to 91,000. According to the NFL, that’s believed to be the biggest crowd for an exhibition game played within the U.S., although multiple preseason games played in Mexico drew crowds in excess of 100,000.

“Every time we do these preseason games it’s brutal,” said Jay Rothman, Monday Night Football producer. “You put the guys on camera, you open up the show, and it’s an empty stadium. It’s dreadful.”

That won’t be the case for this milestone moment. In light of the historic nature of the game, ESPN is also bringing in its new Sunday NFL Countdown pregame crew of Chris Berman, Matt Hasselbeck, Charles Woodson, Randy Moss and Trent Dilfer.

“At the end of the first ‘Hard Knocks’ episode, there was a fan who walked through the Coliseum gate on family day saying he had waited 22 years for this moment,” said Kevin Demoff, Rams chief operating officer, referring to the HBO training camp series.

“I think that captures how so many people feel about Saturday night and the excitement that surrounds this historic game. Fans who grew up with the Rams can now share their team with their children in Los Angeles for the first time. Groups that used to tailgate together decades ago can reunite. Fans will get the chance to meet new season ticket neighbors and bond around the Rams.”

The last NFL game played in L.A. was on Dec. 24, 1994, when Kansas City beat the Raiders, 19-9, at the Coliseum. The last player to gain positive yards in that game? Future Hall of Fame running back Marcus Allen … for the Chiefs.

On that same day, the L.A. Rams played their final game before moving to St. Louis, losing at Anaheim Stadium to Wash-ington, 24-21. Their closing play was emblematic of that 4-12 season: A 1-yard gain by quarterback Chris Miller on fourth-and-11.

Saturday’s game will mark the Rams debut of No. 1 pick Jared Goff, who is expected to play two-plus quarters after start-ing quarterback Case Keenum takes the first 15 or so snaps.

Gruden, who worked with both players on his popular “Gruden’s QB Camp” show before the draft, said Keenum, entering his fifth NFL season, is far more prepared to handle the job in the early going.

“Right now, Keenum’s downright better,” said Gruden, who attended Rams camp Thursday and met with coaches after-ward. “He’s a functional quarterback, the kind of guy I played with most of my [coaching] career. He’s a guy that can win games for you. He’s a feisty guy. He knows what to do. They’ve got a good defense, they can run the ball — don’t screw the game up. He’ll be a good role model for Jared.”

Goff, who ran a wide-open, no-huddle system at Cal, has not taken a snap from under center since his freshman year of high school and didn’t have to call plays in the huddle in college.

“Just hold your horses on Goff,” Gruden said. “I know he’s going to be the Chosen One on Saturday when he runs out there. Fans are going to love him. I just think you’ve got to be a little patient.”

Each of the previous five quarterbacks drafted No. 1 overall were Week 1 starters as rookies: Matthew Stafford, Sam Bradford, Cam Newton, Andrew Luck and Jameis Winston. Even while praising Goff, Gruden said the Rams should wait as long as possible before turning to the rookie.

“Physically, he’s gotten better every year,” Gruden said. “I still think he hasn’t fully maxed out his physical potential. He’s got to get stronger.

“His lower body, his pocket movement is incredible. He can make the throws. He just needs time with these receivers, this coordinator, and this system. I’m concerned about not putting too much too soon on the guy.”

As for the Rams and their legions of fans, the football can’t come soon enough.

“Since our return, the reception from Los Angeles has been amazing and is a powerful reminder of how the NFL can unite a region,” Demoff said. “When the ball gets kicked off at the Coliseum on Saturday night, a new generation of NFL fans will be born and will join our diehard fans who have patiently waited to welcome us home.”

LOS ANGELES >> In the shadow of the Coliseum, a reunion, 22 years in the making, is underway on the blacktop of Lot 2.

Old friends pose for photos in matching blue and yellow jerseys, marveling at the path they took to get to this parking lot, toasting the occasion with cans of Bud Lite. So few here expected this reunion to ever happen, and yet here they are, dusting off their old yellow and blues, sharing stories of Dickerson and Deacon and Ferragamo with their sons and daugh-ters, smiling wide at memories that, for two decades, dripped with gloomy nostalgia. The pain of the past has melted away. Under the canopies that makes up this first, triumphant tailgate, there is only pure, unbridled joy. Tupac’s “California Love” rings out throughout Lot 2, and a spontaneous dance party erupts.

“We’re home, baby!” one fan yells, “The Rams are home!”

Saturday the NFL officially returned to Los Angeles after a two-decades-long drought, and while some may have ques-tioned the fervor for pro football in the nation’s second-largest city, those doubts hardly seem to matter here. This is a celebration. An emotional release. A surreal welcome home.

For Mike Pugrad, it’s all of those things. The 58-year-old from Whittier hasn’t been in the Coliseum since opening day of the 1979 NFL season. As a young boy, his father -- a Filipino immigrant who adopted the team when they moved to Los Angeles in 1946 -- brought him to the stadium often, regaling mythic tales of Bob Waterfield and Elroy “Crazy Legs” Hirsch. And so, on the occasion of that 1979 game, Pugrad brought his father along to repay him.

Now, a few hours before the Rams’ return, he looks down at a beat-up gold wedding ring on his left hand. “He gave this to me six years before he passed,” Pugrad says.

He pulls the ring off of his finger and looks up at the stadium in the distance. The Rams still remind him of his father. The team was their means for understanding each other. In his voice, you can sense that connection still. Pugrad remembers, in vivid detail, the first moment he watched the Rams run out of the Coliseum tunnel, back in 1968, how his father nudged him and whispered in his ear. “Son,” he said, ‘that’s the greatest team in the NFL.’”

He looks back down at the ring, his father’s words in his ear. “I wanted to bring something of his today,” Pugrad says.

Under a nearby tent, Max Stanley is wearing a far different homage to his father, Dave, who years ago instilled in him a love for the Rams, even while they played in St. Louis. Upon hearing about the Rams’ return to L.A., Stanley even named his new puppy, Kroenke, after the Rams’ owner. But Saturday, with his dad at his side, Stanley received the headwear he’d long been waiting for: a watermelon, with the name “Max-A-Melon” written on it.

Dave Stanley was a founding member of the Melonheads, a group of Rams diehards who began donning carved-out watermelons in 1985, as a sign of their fandom, and for years, he has wondered what it might be like to sit in the “Melon Patch” with his son.

“Now, I get a chance to be with him almost every week,” Dave Stanley says. “I can’t help but get sentimental about it.”

“You’ve got a little melon seed in your eye there, dad,” Max jokes.

The Melonheads were in the stands for that final, depressing end to the Rams’ first stretch in Los Angeles, back on Christ-mas Eve, 1994. A few of them still won’t utter former owner Georgia Frontiere’s name. Most say they never expected the Rams to come back.

Steve Goldstein, however, suggests he’s the exception. As they trudged through the parking lot that day, Goldstein in-sisted he buy a long-sleeved Los Angeles Rams t-shirt. He handed over $10 and told his friends that he’d wear it when the Rams returned.

On Saturday, Goldstein, now 56, came to the Coliseum wearing that same shirt, 22 years later. It was riddled with holes and frayed along the collar.

“I have to retire it after today,” Goldstein says. “It’s been through enough.”

Perhaps, after 22 years of waiting, everyone here in Lot 2 could say the same. But judging by the joy amid these yellow-and-blue masses, the wait has only made this moment sweeter.

“This is all I ever wanted,” says Tom Bateman, director of “Bring Back The Rams”. “They made it right. They finally made it right.”

What the future holds for the Rams in Los Angeles remains to be seen. Will the rest of the city welcome the Rams with open arms? Will they ever retain the status they once held in the Southland? For the moment, in Lot 2, none of this mat-ters. There is too much to celebrate -- fathers and sons, old wedding rings and frayed T-shirts, and a new era ahead.

In a few hours, as this reunion trickles inside the Coliseum’s creaky walls, past racks of “Welcome Home!” memorabilia and commemorative preseason T-shirts, the moment finally sinks in. A voice bellows over the stadium PA: “IT’S TIME TO WELCOME HOME YOUR LOS ANGELES RAMS”, and grown men wipe their eyes, thankful for the second chance they never dreamed they’d receive.

You can’t spell Johnny Hekker without L.A. Well, actually you can. It just seems like Los Angeles already has the Rams two-time Pro Bowl punter’s name all over it.

“I was very excited (about the team moving to California this year),” said Hekker, who is in his fifth season with the Rams after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon State in 2012. “Of course there was a part of me that knew I was going to be missing a lot of special people and fans that were there in St. Louis. But I think the future of football here in L.A. is really, really bright, and to be able to go back to the west coast, close to my family (in Bothell, Washington), is also something that I’m really excited about.

“The football and everything on the field’s good. It’s just a little bit sunnier out here and you’ve got to wear a little bit more sunblock.”

Before heading to the team’s training camp at the University of California, Irvine, Hekker and his wife, Makayla, as did his teammates, the team’s front office employees, trainers and equipment managers, had to make the move from Missouri and find a home.

“I spoke with my agent (Paul Sheehy) and he gave me a trusted realtor, someone that he knew and was highly recom-mended,” Hekker said. “He and my wife and I sat down and chatted about features that we wanted in a home and areas that we liked. It was definitely a process. The market out here moves really fast, but we ended up finding a spot that we love.”

With Los Angeles’ reputation of having freeways that could easily be mistaken for narrow parking lots, it’s safe to say the spot Hekker and his wife fell in love with is convenient.

“Oh, my gosh, yeah, the traffic out here is no joke,” Hekker said. “That is definitely something we took into account when finding a home. Somewhere we could be really close to our facilities so that I’m not getting caught in traffic and taking hours and hours to get home [even though it’s] just a couple miles. Because that’s how things can happen out here.”

Things are going well for Hekker and it’s understandable why he’s already become a fan favorite. He has even gone on Twitter to thank them for coming to watch the Rams practice at training camp.

“Well, when you’ve got 10,000 of them at your first practice, that’s something that’s really, really special,” Hekker said. “I just wanted to make sure that we honored them and let everyone know in Rams Nation out here in Los Angeles, know that we felt their presence and we’re really excited to have them out.

“My situation is pretty dang good, being a punter. It’s good all around. I really enjoy it. I love seeing the fans and getting to interact with them. Take photos, sign autographs, all that stuff, it’s just the cream on top.”

Another reason why Hekker has caught the attention of the fans is that he comes across as genuinely a good guy. A case in point is that he shelved his No. 6 jersey during camp and is wearing No. 3 as a tribute to fallen friends.

Former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler and Sam Foltz, a punter who would be a senior at Nebraska, were killed in a car accident while returning from a kicking camp in Wisconsin on July 23rd.

“I was pretty good friends with Mike Sadler,” Hekker said. “I’ve been training with him since he was a freshman in college, kind of helping him get ready for NFL when he was coming out. Mike’s just a really, really good guy that was a kind, very smart, generous, just nothing but a class, Type A person that you wanted to be around.

“I’m honoring him because it’s the kind of deal where he’s not around anymore and I’d just like to shine a little light on his legacy that he’s leaving. He was out of college and was actually going to Stanford for law school.”

Thinking of and giving back to others isn’t new to Hekker. He’s been the Rams nominee for the NFLPA’s Byron “Whizzer” White Award, which is given out to the player that is just as dedicated off the field as he is on it. He’s also been the team’s nominee for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.

“I feel like I’m blessed,” Hekker said. “I’m not blessed to be selfish or self-promote, I think God had a plan for me to use my blessings to bless others and try to just be a light and encourage people to work hard and chase their dreams and they might luck out and things will fall into place like they did for me.

“It’s the kind of thing where I try to use my platform to be uplifting and just try and shed some light into people’s lives when a lot of dark times are going on for people. Little things can make a big difference.”

IRVINE, Calif. -- Defensive end Robert Quinn was back with the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, running through drills after spending the last three days in Rio to watch his sister compete in the Summer Olympics. Quinn, limited to eight games last season and coming off back surgery, didn’t play in the exhibition opener against the Cowboys and will not play on Saturday against the Chiefs, either.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher wants to give him time to get acclimated after a couple of long flights and three emotional days in Brazil.

Quinn watched his 19-year-old sister, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, advance to the semifinals of the 100-meter hurdles and come up short of the gold-medal race in heartbreaking fashion. Camacho-Quinn was among the leaders through seven hurdles in the semifinals, but stumbled through a couple of hurdles and was disqualified.

Camacho-Quinn -- who competed for Puerto Rico, where her mother was born -- is focused now on competing in the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London.

Quinn said he “couldn’t have been more proud.”

“I’m acting like I ran the Olympics,” Quinn said. “I’m so happy for her. She’s 19, had a real, legitimate shot at it. It just didn’t work in her favor this time.”

Los Angeles Rams season ticket holder Jamaal Artis crawled down the 110 Freeway, inched for what seemed like an eter-nity on side streets toward Exposition Park, then drew a breath upon seeing the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum — billed as “the greatest stadium in the world.”

As a teen, Artis had come to the Coliseum with his father, Andrew, for deafening USC Trojan games. Now he clutched the hand of his 5-year-old son, Evan, and squeezed into its narrow tunnel jammed with fans. And emerged into the great bowl of cheering returning Ramdom.

“It felt like home,” said Artis, 36, a registered nurse who lives in Echo Park, of last Saturday’s preseason game, which drew a record-breaking 89,140 fans. “It brought back a flood of memories.

“The pristine green gridiron. The old seats. The Coliseum like a grand old lady who had just bought a new dress … the quintessential L.A. experience.”

Artis and his son were gearing up last week to join another 90,000 fans expected to pile into the historic stadium Saturday during the second Los Angeles Rams preseason game of the new season — with a kickoff against Kansas City some 70 years since they first came to town.

Fans will flow in from freeways throughout Greater Los Angeles, only to get stuck in street traffic for 30 minutes outside the Coliseum inside Exposition Park.

They will get gouged for off-site parking at up to $100 a pop, not unlike at any heavily attended Trojan game, or double what’s charged at the historic stadium.

They will file cheek by jowl into the three-year home of the relocated Rams. To fill as many as 93,607 seats unchanged for more than half a century. Inside a classic concrete bowl that has withstood earth-shaking temblors for 93 years.

And they will watch football the way it is meant to be watched, say some observers. Not in private suites and the glassed-in comfort of luxury skyboxes.

But in the open air in view of the Los Angeles skyline.

“At the moment, it’s the perfect spot,” said Dan Stimmler, a University of Southern California vice president and chief oper-ating officer of the publicly owned Coliseum, for which it holds a 98-year lease. “This is where they started. This is where they were for years.

“The nostalgic feel you get to enjoy the old seats for three more years, it’s great.”

The Los Angeles Rams, the city’s oldest sports franchise, played in the Coliseum from 1946 to 1979, where they were the juggernaut of the NFC West, powered by the likes of Roman Gabriel, Merlin Olsen, Deacon Jones and Rosey Grier. They then left to play in Anaheim and St. Louis.

In 2019, the L.A. Rams will once again abandon the Coliseum for a $2.6 billion stadium complex in Inglewood, the most expensive, technologically advanced in the world, with 80,000 seats.

Until then, L.A. football will be retro chic until USC in 2018 launches into a $270 million renovation.

Some say that, for a sprawling region devoid of much public space, congregating in the Coliseum to root for the Rams for nine games a season when the USC Trojans are off the field for the next few year will be a boon for community spirit.

“It’s a spectacular story,” said Ronald A. Davison, a professor of geography at Cal State Northridge who specializes in Los Angeles and public space. “L.A. is a place that lacks community spirit. There aren’t enough centripetal forces drumming Angelenos together.

“But if this historic stadium can link the generations and be a moment to root for the team, it’s healthy for the city, for build-ing the community,” he said. “It’s community boosterism at its best.”

If so, it the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is a community builder originally born of sin.

Scroll back to the turn of the last century, when the dusty pueblo of Los Angeles was poised for a population boom. Orchards blanketed the Southland, punctuated by oil derricks. By 1913, the city had secured a deep water port. It had hosted the world’s first international air show.

Los Angeles now had water via its L.A. Aqueduct but lacked international acclaim.

On 160 acres southwest of the city stood a Agriculture Park mutually owned by the city, county and state. It served as host for bawdy saloons, legal bordellos, horse and early auto racing, gambling and a sport known as coursing, where packs of dogs tore apart hunted hares.

It was there, among the corridors of vice and corrupted politicians, where a Sunday school teacher led reformers to create Exposition Park, home for an art-history museum to rival San Francisco’s, as well as a state armory, expo hall and rose garden.

And it was there, hoping to draw an international Olympics, where Los Angeles in 1923 opened its Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a year behind Pasadena’s Rose Bowl.

Designed by father-and-son architects John and Donald Parkinson, who created L.A.’s finest landmarks such as Bullock’s Wilshire, Union Station and contributed to its iconic City Hall, the $1 million bowl honored the city’s doughboys who’d served in World War I.

“It was built with the Olympics in mind,” said Ken Bernstein, director of the Los Angeles Office of Historic Resources, a Woodland Hills native who in the 1970s went to Rams games with his father, Donald, to see NFL veterans Pat Haden and Joe Namath.

“It very much gave Los Angeles a true, world-class stadium — and put Los Angeles on the global map.”

In the past century, the Coliseum has hosted two Summer Olympics, in 1932 and 1984, and is poised to host a third in 2024, the Olympic rings still floating atop its peristyle.

The low-slung bowl has been home to the Rams, the Los Angeles Raiders, the first-year AFL Chargers, and the Los Angeles Dodgers, having hosted two Super Bowls, one World Series, a papal Mass by Pope John Paul II and three U.S. presidents, including a 1960 Democratic National Convention acceptance speech by John F. Kennedy.

Nelson Mandela once captivated thousands, as did Billy Graham, who once preached to a record crowd of 134,254.

For Artis, the Coliseum isn’t just about the chance to watch Rams quarterback Jared Goff, fellow Cal alum, get a chance to light up the NFL, he noted in a recent blog. It’s about better bonds between father and son.

And welcoming the Rams back, however briefly, to their historic home at L.A.’s Coliseum.

“To those of us who grew up here, we are thrilled to have them back,” said Artis, who works at Good Samaritan Hospital. “I have a portable grill, so I plan on bringing brats and beer.

“I think the fans in Los Angeles will get behind the Rams regardless of how this season turns out.”
