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.
