– The Rams are back on the field today for Organized Team Activities and we’ll have plenty of stuff coming from that later today, including more on what you’re about to read from QB Sam Bradford but for now, it’s important to get this information out there.
– Bradford joined the city of St. Louis, mayor Francis Slay, the American Red Cross and Switch+ Contemporary along with some other partners to create #STL4OKC, a donation drive to support our neighbors in tornado ravaged Oklahoma City and its suburbs.
– Bradford and the group made the official announcement late yesterday afternoon.
