Things are pretty slow these days when it comes to Rams news, but head coach Jeff Fisher is using this “down time” to help out a good cause. According to News Channel 5 out of Tennessee, Fisher will join Mike Shanahan, Gary Kubiak, Jay Cutler and others in a silent auction and golf tournament to benefit the Heimerdinger Foundation, named for former NFL defensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger, who died of cancer in September 2011.
The event, called the Drive for Dinger, will take place on June 29 at the Vanderbilt Legends Club. Dinner and the auction will be held the day before. Heimerdinger was diagnosed with cancer in November 2010 while working for the Titans and coach Fisher, and he was close with Fisher for many years during their NFL coaching careers.
