Rams focus on hopefuls
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jeff Fisher already knows what wide receiver Tavon Austin and the rest of the St. Louis Rams draft picks can do.
He saw them at the combine, at their pro days and at private workouts. So seeing them on the practice field for the first time was no big deal.
At this weekend's rookie minicamp, with practices Friday and Saturday along with off-field sessions, the focus is on a larger than usual class of undrafted free agents and more than two dozen hopefuls in for a two-day tryout. Among the undrafted free agents is linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong, on the rebound after getting kicked off the team at Miami before last season in the scandal over gifts from a former booster.
