In LA Rams News: All-Pro punter Johnny Hekker lobbied on social media for the Rams to make his jersey available online
The LA Rams have plenty on their plate right now. With the start to an NFL season which is anything but normal, the LA Rams are deeply involved in pulling together a 90-man roster from all corners of the nation into a cohesive functioning unit through the use of virtual meetings, scripted individual workouts, and an honor system for athletes to study the playbook, work out according to their exercise plan, and prepare for playing in the NFL.
On top of this, the Rams organization is still constructing the $5 billion SoFi stadium sports complex, trying to hammer out ways to free up salary-cap space to pay 2020 rookies and roll out a new logo and uniform design simultaneously.
Much is akin to the old Morton Salt commercials from the early 1900s: When It Rains, It Pours. And so, the team has one more issue to resolve, as identified by All-Pro Johnny Hekker via his Twitter account today.

Of course, the fact that the team has just released new uniform and jersey designs may have created a bump in production and availability. But when visiting the Official NFL Shop, Hekker’s jersey’s are only available in very limited design options. Even rookie running back Cam Akers and rookie wide receiver Van Jefferson have their jerseys available in the new design already.
The LA Rams’ new jerseys will likely have supply and availability concerns for a number of veteran players. In a brief survey of NFLShop.com, we noticed a similar issue for veterans Michael Brockers and Andrew Whitworth as well. Hopefully, it will all be sorted out soon.3
