With training camp beginning for all 32 NFL teams, much of the attention is on the Los Angeles Rams. It’s the franchise’s first season back on the west coast after spending 21 years in St. Louis, and they have some of the most promising young players in all of football.

The Rams will be featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” as they get ready for the 2016 season and players compete for roster spots. The added exposure should help ease the transition for a Southern California audience looking to get reacquainted with its new team.

But with Los Angeles hosting an NFL team for the first time in two decades, it isn’t just NFL players that are competing for jobs. With 5,000 positions open for guest services, ticket takers, ushers, security officers, and event staff, the Rams and the South Los Angeles Workforce Center have teamed up for a job fair on Friday.

The move should be a helpful boost to L.A.’s economy, and the Rams hope to quickly bring a winning team to the city while strengthening their bond with the community. The Rams will have also have a Fan Fest on Aug.6, a free event that includes watching an open practice at the Coliseum.


It was only a matter of time before the Rams got rid of Nick Foles, and the team has finally cut the quarterback after they were unable to trade him. Foles was brought in to be the team’s No.1 quarterback last year, but he was arguably the worst starter in the NFL. That led to L.A. trading up and taking Jared Goff with the first overall pick in the draft. Goff is expected to quickly become the face of the franchise, sharing the honor with star running back Todd Gurley.

Case Keenum took over for Foles late last season, though he wasn’t overly impressive. Head coach Jeff Fisher has said Keenum will enter training camp as the top quarterback on the depth chart, but it will surprise no one if the job becomes Goff’s by the time the regular season begins. Keenum had an 87.7 passer rating in 2015, throwing four touchdowns and one interception.

Quarterback Sean Mannion, who was drafted in the third round of the 2015 draft, is also on the roster. He had seven pass attempts as a rookie.


When the Rams moved to Los Angeles, their home games quickly became one of the hottest tickets in town. The team has sold out all 70,000 season tickets at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. In January, when the Rams made the move back to L.A., the organization received 56,000 season ticket deposits.

A limited number of single-game tickets were made available on Thursday morning. The Rams have held back a few seats for each game to allow non-season ticket holders to attend home games, though some of the tickets are going fast.
