ST. LOUIS (AP) - More than half of the roster was involved in the first St. Louis Rams special teams-only practice of training camp.
That'll be the case again this week during preparations for the preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints on Friday night.
There's a surplus of willing, fresh legs anxious to make a name for themselves, a group that includes Michael Sam.
Running back Chase Reynolds, undrafted out of Montana, is trying to make a career out of it. Reynolds played every game last year, virtually all of it on special teams, after spending time on the Rams practice squad in 2011 and 2012.
At the start of training camp, he launched a motivational brand and apparel venture, The Promise Line, using his backstory to inspire people to chase their dreams.
The Rams led the NFL in punt return defense, and were eighth in kickoff return coverage.
