The Rams worked out under sunny skies this spring in Oxnard, a fitting weather backdrop for a franchise that returned to Southern California after more than two decades in the Midwest.
The sunny disposition of nearly all players, coaches and front-office personnel is expected to last at least through mid-September.
That’s when the Rams, who have not finished above .500 since 2003, will open the season against the San Francisco 49ers on “Monday Night Football.”
Not surprisingly, the Rams recently wrapped up three weeks of organized-team activities full of optimism.
Whether that demeanor is warranted remains to be seen.
