Chris Givens out of the first-team offense
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rams receiver Chris Givens spent the offseason aiming to have a big training camp and preseason, but it's a battle he's been losing. ESPN notes that Givens has already been pushed off the first-team offense by the likes of Kenny Britt, Brian Quick and Stedman Bailey (not to mention Tavon Austin). 

Givens went scoreless last season on 34 catches. Through two seasons he has three touchdowns and never more than 698 yards in a year.

Ankle injury hampered Chris Givens most of last season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams receiver Chris Givens didn't use it as an excuse, but conceded a nagging ankle injury bothered him most of last season, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Givens had zero touchdown catches after an impressive rookie year in which he caught three scoring passes and produced a reception of 50 or more yards in five straight games.

"It’s been the longest offseason of my life,” Givens said at the start of the offseason conditioning program. "It’s just a constant reminder every day of what I didn’t accomplish — all because I got in my own way. So I’ve been waiting for this day for the longest (time)."

Different offseason approach has Chris Givens optimistic
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rams receiver Chris Givens didn't score a touchdown last season, a stat that reasonated with him all offseason long. So when he had the opportunity to spend time with legendary trainers and stay in touch with Hall of Fame-caliber players, he didn't hesitate

Givens hooked up with soon-to-be Hall of Famer Aeneas Williams, who referred him to his long-time trainer Mack Newton. Givens also got in touch with Rams all-time receiving leader Isaac Bruce. He's spent the offseason working on the nuances of his game, including learning patience and how to set up defensive backs for big plays rather than just try to speed past them. He also recovered from ankle and shoulder injuries that hampered him. 

Givens will have a shot at starting for the Rams this season, but he'll need a solid training camp to earn the job. 

"I have some big goals and I have a lot of things I needed to change in my life," Givens told ESPN. "And just I really made football my No. 1 priority and that's all I have been doing is working on my body, getting in shape to run, not running to get in shape and just doing things the right way so I can be durable throughout my career."

Rams don't view receiver as a need
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chris Givens led Rams wideouts with just 569 receiving yards, but general manager Les Snead doesn't think the team needs to upgrade at the position. “I think our receivers right now, I truly believe as they progress … we cannot have another receiver around here, and we’re going to be a good football team," Snead told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Rookie Tavon Austin led the wideouts with 40 catches, two more than Austin Pettis and six more than Givens.
