Rams At Dolphins Tomorrow

The Rams close out the preseason tomorrow night at Miami. With Sam Bradford out for the season with a knee injury, Shaun Hill is now the starting quarterback for St. Louis. The Rams are 1-and-2 in preseason play. They open the regular season September 7th against the Vikings.

The Rams continue to trim players as Saturday's final 53-man roster limit approaches. To get down to Tuesday's 75-man limit, they placed quarterback Sam Bradford and center Demetrius Rhaney on injured reserve. They also released safety Matt Daniels and defensive end Sammy Brown.

Michael Sam's NFL dream is still alive. He has survived the Rams' roster cuts as the team got down to Tuesday's 75-man limit. Sam is trying to become the first openly gay player in the NFL after being drafted out of Missouri in May. The final 53-man roster is due on Saturday.

Thomas Jefferson, proponent of the Bill of Rights, could never have conceived just how many venues there are today for First-Amendment protected speech.

What he also could not have conceived is how this phenomenon of pervasive media has actually stymied, not enhanced, the free speech expression of presidential candidates.
