by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams coach Jeff Fisher referred to third-round pick Tre Mason as "a change-of-pace back," reports the Montgomery Advertiser. "Good zone runner, obviously the numbers speak for themselves," Fisher said. "He was a guy we just couldn't pass up at that point."

Mason will serve as a complement to lead runner Zac Stacy.

Tavon Austin: Playbook was 'like Spanish to me' last year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams receiver Tavon Austin admitted to the Associated Press that he didn't grasp the playbook as a rookie, especially early in the season. "I didn't really know what was going on," Austin said. "Everything looked like Spanish and sounded like Spanish to me."

The No. 8 overall pick from 2013 said he's comfortable with the system now.

"I understand the plays, the depth, the routes, the splits and everything," Austin said. "I just feel good that I can make some plays. Definitely, the game's slowed down for me."

Healthy Sam Bradford won't be asked to do too much
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford appears to be on schedule for a return to health from his season-ending knee injury, and the Rams expect him to be close to or at full speed for the start of camp, reports ESPN.

Bradford will get a third season in coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's offense, but it's safe to assume the Rams won't ask Bradford to carry the load for what will likely be a run-heavy offense.

The Rams have clearly abandoned the spread approach they were installing this time last year, but they will almost certainly be more balanced than they were after Bradford's injury in 2013.
