Now that the NFLPA has decertified and the NFL owners have locked the players out, where exactly does that leave the players who are currently under contract to the Rams? The short answer is, it leaves them nowhere. Players aren’t allowed into the team’s training facility, and they won’t be allowed until the courts clear this thing up. The good news is that Rams’ players are apparently still finding ways to work out, as many of the team’s receivers are reportedly training in Texas. Quarterback Sam Bradford has said over the past few months that he plans on getting together with his receivers during the offseason, and it sounds like he might be heading down to the Lone Star State to join his pass-catchers.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that this whole situation still has many twists and turns ahead of it, but the organization and its players are going to have to make the best of a bad situation. For what it’s worth, I still believe that football will be played this coming season, but I’m extremely concerned about how this will affect a young team that still needs to adjust to a new offense. All we can do is sit and wait for now, just like everyone else involved in this whole messy ordeal.
