L.A. Rams Roundup: Murray waived, rookie mini-camp, and Goff at work

The NFL Draft may be over, but the Los Angeles Rams are busy preparing for the 2017 season. The team has been in the news for various reasons. Here is a look at some of the stories coming out of the organization:

Former Occidental quarterback Bryan Scott looking for a spot with the Rams: The Rams are looking for depth at the quarterback position, and they are searching closer to home in hopes of finding it. Former Division III Occidental quarterback Bryan Scott is in camp looking for the spot recently opened by the release of Aaron Murray. Speaking of the Murray release …

The Rams released former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray: It looks like the Rams are looking for other options at quarterback with only two of them on the depth chart at the moment. The team’s decision to cut Murray opens the door for Scott, Dylan Thompson, and Matt Davis to earn a spot on team. It’s also possible the Rams are watching the free agent market looking for a quarterback.

Jared Goff working hard in the offseason: ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez noted this week that former No. 1 draft pick Jared Goff has been present at Rams headquarters since April 10, and that the second-year quarterback “wants to be great.”

The Rams’ full mini-camp roster: USA Today’s Tanya Ray Fox published the full mini-camp roster and filled in readers on two players that were already released.

First day of mini-camp: L.A. Times beat writer Gary Klein had several notes from the first day of camp, including how rookies Gerald Everett and Cooper Kupp were adjusting to the NFL. Klein also wrote about how new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is working with the new rookies on the roster.

Speaking of Phillips and the rookies: Orange County Register beat writer Rich Hammond profiled the budding relationship between Phillips and the rookies. He also noted the rookies that head coach Sean McVay has already been impressed with early in camp. Kupp tops the list.

“All or Nothing” to focus on the Rams: Amazon’s “All or Nothing” received plenty of accolades while covering the 2015 Arizona Cardinals. Now it’s back with a look at the 2016 Los Angeles Rams, including the Jeff Fisher firing. It will be released to Amazon in June.

Throwback dates: The Rams will wear their throwback uniforms at home against the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers this year after asking fans to pick the dates.
