Rams Battle Browns Saturday

The Rams continue to prep for Saturday's preseason game against the Browns in Cleveland. Browns head coach Mike Pettine announced veteran Brian Hoyer will be his starting quarterback to open the regular season, getting the nod over rookie Johnny Manziel.

Rams offensive tackle Roger Saffold is hoping to see the field this weekend against the Browns. He's been recovering from a stinger in his left shoulder and has yet to appear in a preseason game. Saffold says he's good to go, but the coaching staff is being cautious with his health.

The Rams are the NFL's least valuable franchise. In its annual list, Forbes rates the Rams' worth at 930-million-dollars, the lowest of any NFL franchise. The Dallas Cowboys are number-one at 3.2-billion, followed by the Patriots at 2.6-billion. The average NFL team is worth 1.43-billion.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
