Los Angeles Rams Weekly!

Mike Singletary to work with Rams' defense this season. Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary will work with the Los Angeles Rams' defense this season, returning to coaching after a two-year absence.

Singletary revealed the plans in a radio interview Tuesday, and the Rams later confirmed the arrangement.

Los Angeles coach Jeff Fisher hasn't defined a role for Singletary, who is likely to be an adviser to the defense.

Singletary was the San Francisco 49ers' head coach from 2008 to 2010, going 18-22. He was a linebackers coach with the Minnesota Vikings from 2011 to 2013 before spending the past two years out of coaching.

He played 12 seasons for the Chicago Bears, winning a Super Bowl while becoming one of the best middle linebackers in NFL history.

New series to feature Rams football, family life. It didn't take long for the newly arrived Los Angeles Rams to go Hollywood.

Fresh off its return from St. Louis, the NFL team is getting its own show on E!, the same cable channel that airs shows featuring the Kardashian clan.

"Hollywood & Football" chronicles the lives of six Rams players and their families as they adjust to life in Los Angeles in six one-hour episodes debuting this fall.

The featured players are wide receivers Kenny Britt and Bradley Marquez, offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, tight end Lance Kendricks, running back Chase Reynolds and fullback Cory Harkey. The players are either married or engaged and all have young children, except for Kendricks and Marquez, whose fiancee is pregnant.

The network announced the show Wednesday.

Rams D-Line Named One of NFL’s Scariest Position Groups.
It may be the Fourth of July weekend, but the Los Angeles Rams are frightening folks like it is Halloween. 

NFL Media personality Bucky Brooks recently named the ferocious Rams defensive line to this “NFL’s Scariest Position Groups” saying:

The Rams have been a popular sleeper pick for the past few seasons, largely due to the presence of a dynamic defensive front that features an intriguing cast of playmakers. Led by 2014 Defensive Rookie of the Year Aaron Donald and two-time Pro Bowler Robert Quinn, the Rams have a formidable front line that terrorizes opponents at the point of attack. With Michael Brockers flexing his muscles as the team's designated run stopper, the Rams have constructed a defensive line that features three first-round picks living up to their potential as blue-chip talents.

Additionally, Gregg Rosenthal of Around the NFL ranked the Rams' unit the best defensive line in the NFL. Rosenthal backed his ranking up by stating, "Last year, Aaron Donald had the best season for a defensive tackle since Warren Sapp."

It's all about the first step. Donald and Quinn might each have the quickest get-off of any player at their position. Coach Jeff Fisher said you need to see Quinn in person to believe how quick he is, and some quality time with Game Pass supports that. He often jump cuts through an offensive line hole like Jamaal Charles slipping past defenders.

In 2016, the Rams defensive line will have even more talent with the addition of Dominique Easley and Quinton Coples, making five former first round picks on the line. 

Projected Starters: Robert Quinn, Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers, William Hayes
Key Returners: Eugene Sims, Ethan Westbrooks, Matt Longacre, Louis Trinca-Pasat
Key Losses: Chris Long (Patriots), Nick Fairley (Saints)
New Additions: Dominique Easley (Patriots), Quinton Coples (Dolphins), Cam Thomas (Steelers)
Rookies: Ian Seau (Nevada), Morgan Fox (CSU-Pueblo)
