Rams Fall To Fins

The Rams preseason came to a conclusion with a 14-13 loss to the Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium. Michael Sam made six tackles, five of which were solo as he fights for a spot on the 53-man roster. St. Louis finished the preseason 1-and-3. The Rams open the regular season a week from Sunday at home against the Vikings.

Michael Sam will soon find out if his NFL dream is a reality. The rookie defensive end is trying to become the first openly gay player to make an NFL roster. Teams must trim down from 75 players to the final 53-man roster by tomorrow. Sam was drafted out of Missouri back in May.

He only gave up four hits with 13 strike outs and one walk. Time and again, Trey has proven his ability to go deep into games.
