The lockout is still raging on, but that’s not stopping the Rams from minicamp. Middle Linebacker James Laurinaitis told the NFL Network today that the players are getting together this week for a player-run minicamp at an undisclosed location in Arizona. According to Laurinaitis, the camp will take place Thursday through Sunday, and it sounds like this one will be much like the last in St. Louis, with 7-on-7 work, film study, workouts, and classroom work. It sounds like skill-position players, linebackers and defensive backs will be there, so it sounds like plenty of work will be done.
As far as the actual location goes, they’re keeping it pretty tight-lipped. I obviously won’t be there since it’s in Arizona, but I have heard rumors that it will be in the Glendale area, so for anyone out in the desert keep a lookout. There have been varying opinions on how important these workouts are, but I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I would much rather have these guys together, working on their game, studying film, and just generally being around each other than sitting by themselves not doing anything. These workouts might not make a major difference in prep
