Interesting day at Rams camp on Monday, as a couple of high-profile visitors were on hand for the festivities. First, former Mizzou standout Danario Alexander was in for a visit with the team. He wasn’t allowed to work out, but he did take a physical and had plenty of conversation with members of the organization. For anyone who isn’t a Mizzou fan, Alexander had a monster senior season with the Tigers, but he went undrafted due to injury concerns after he needed surgery on his left knee to repair an injury sustained during the week of the Senior Bowl. Alexander is free to sign with any team, and reports are that he passed his physical today and was happy with the visit. Alexander himself posted on Twitter that “The visit was great!! We are definitely going to keep in contact”. Everyone knows we need help at the receiver position, so expect the team to give the local guy a good, hard look.
Another visitor made waves today, as former head coach Dick Vermeil was present for all of practice. Vermeil also spoke to the team after the workout, so he certainly made his presence felt. I’m all for Coach Vermeil coming around whenever he wants, and I wish we would see him more often. The man is passionate, and he is a winner. Those are two qualities we need more of in this organization.
Practice Notes: A few notes from today’s workout. Chris Hovan went down with a minor back injury, but it isn’t expected to be serious. Rookie Marquis Johnson was slowed by a hamstring tweak, but again, it is not thought to be anything of significance.
