The Los Angeles Rams have been in the spotlight since they relocated to Los Angeles. And their spotlight is only projected to grow – especially after agreeing to film a reality TV show with E! News.
“We are excited to take viewers inside the exclusive lifestyles of these top athletes and their families as they navigate a new city, new friendships, new schools and the inevitable Hollywood gossip,” Jeff Olde, the executive vice president of programming & development at E!.
Aside from their new television gig the Rams are also engaging with the community via fan-accessible training camp, which will begin at the end of July at University of California, Irvine.
“We look forward to training at UCI in preparation for the 2016 season,” said Rams’ head coach Jeff Fisher. “Their facilities are top-notch, and we’re excited to welcome our fans to their campus as we gear up for the start of the season.”
And while the Rams’ 2016 achievements are still only speculation, they’ve made several major changes in order to set themselves up as competitors within the NFC West in the upcoming season.
After going 7-9 in 2015, the Rams drafted Jared Goff to spark offensive achievement and separate themselves from the bottom of the division for the first time in 11 years. They also brought on former 49ers’ head coach Mike Singletary to help bolster the defense.
The Rams haven’t done anything of consequence in the NFC West since they made it to the divisional rounds back in 2004. They have otherwise been susceptible to mediocre season records, and only managed to stay in the top half of the division for times since 2004.
Relocation is hardly expected to revitalize the Rams, but there’s no denying that their offseason moves have set them up to at least achieve a better season record than last year. Training camp begins at UC Irving on July 30th – and we’re all eager to see how these new and improved Rams have gelled since they drafted first back in April.
