Two Rams are starters on 'Perfect NFL Roster'

This 53-man group chosen from across the league fits beneath the $167 million salary cap. Defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who's holding out, and punter Johnny Hekker made the first team.

ESPN Stats & Info

It's been awhile

The Bills have not made the playoffs since the '90s, while the postseason has eluded the Rams and Bucs for more than a decade.

The Rams are officially done at UC Irvine. They will train out of their regular-season facility in Thousand Oaks starting tomorrow, with a light walk-through in the morning and then a flight to Oakland for Saturday's preseason game. Practice was very light today, too. Said Sean McVay: "I couldn't be more pleased with the way the guys competed, went about the meetings, and the way we practiced every single day."

We must remain mindful of the timeline in a situation like Aaron Donald's. JJ Watt is the only one among the five-highest paid defensive players to sign his extension after just three accrued seasons. On the Rams, Tavon Austin and Robert Quinn also got extended heading into their fourth years. They all got done right around the early part of September. There's still time.

Rams injury report: Several corners were down, including Kayvon Webster, Nickell Robey-Coleman and Mike Jordan. Webster has a bum ankle, but Sean McVay said none of the injuries at that position are serious. The Rams are bringing free agent Leodis McKelvin in for a workout tomorrow nonetheless.

Best play from Rams camp today: It was the very first play of 11-on-11. Sammy Watkins ran a post route. Jared Goff's throw was zipping towards him, and at the very last second, Watkins sprung his hands up and came down with the ball. Goff couldn't help but express awe. "You try not to, but then kind of turn around at everyone like, 'Everyone see that?'"

'Sharp' Watkins quick to impress Rams QB Goff

New Rams receiver Sammy Watkins has already impressed starting quarterback Jared Goff with how quickly he has grasped the offense after spending just three days on the field with the team.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Trumaine Johnson, on why he has put it on himself to match up against Sammy Watkins in camp: "He's no regular receiver. That's Sammy Watkins. ... You gotta like competition, and I love competition. So of course I'm going to go out there and match up with the best guys."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

New Rams WR Sammy Watkins got a lot more involved today. Made a couple of nice connections with Jared Goff towards the middle of the field, and another one about 20 yards near the far side. Trumaine Johnson was constantly matched up against Watkins. At one point, he picked Goff as the underneath guy in zone coverage. Said Goff on Watkins: "He's been sharper than I expected. ... He's been on it; he's been sharp."

Rams coach Sean McVay is learning a little bit more about Sammy Watkins every day. "You can feel his speed and his juice down the field." Watkins caught several intermediate throws from Jared Goff today and was constantly matched up with Trumaine Johnson.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Rams QB Jared Goff struggled during 11-on-11 work the last couple days, throwing several interceptions. "I have to be smarter than that; take care of the ball a little bit better."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The emphasis today, for the third straight day: ball protection. Defenders are continually trying to poke the ball out even after the whistle. Rams fumbled six times unofficially Saturday.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Can confirm that the Rams will work out CB Leodis McKelvin tomorrow, as NFL.com first reported. Rams still trying to fill the void of EJ Gaines, who was dealt to the Bills in the Sammy Watkins deal. Rams looking for a primary backup to Trumaine Johnson and Kayvon Webster. Troy Hill is suspended the first two games. They tried slot corner Nickell Robert-Coleman in that role Saturday, and Sean McVay liked how he played.
