The Rams published projected starters in their training camp media guide. They were as expected. ...

Rams are introducing several new elements to training camp in hopes of improving the fan experience. They include: shaded seating for half the bleachers, available on a first-come, first-served basis; expanded "Fan Zone;" two new beer gardens adjacent to the field; and the opportunity for a select 20 people to form a "Fan Tunnel" for players to walk through on their way to practice. They'll also have some select themed days and giveaways. Different position groups will sign autographs after each practice.

The Rams are not expected to agree on a long-term deal with CB Trumaine Johnson by today's deadline. ESPN's Adam Schefter brought up an interesting point: Johnson could've gone to the Saints and signed a long-term deal, but chose to stay in LA. Saints, per Schefter earlier this offseason, were willing to trade what was thought to be a second-round pick, but Johnson being unwilling to sign long term probably made the deal to fall apart.

NFL bans Rams' Thomas 4 games, cites PEDs

Second-year Rams receiver Mike Thomas been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's PEDs policy.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Thomas is the second Rams player to be suspended by the NFL, after CB Troy Hill, who was suspended two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Thomas barely contributed as a rookie, but he's one of few true deep threats on the roster and it looked like he was primed for a significant role in Sean McVay's offense. Not anymore. At least not in the season's first quarter.
