Rams let it fly in name of camaraderie

By Mike Sando

St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher told reporters Friday he likes what he's seeing from rookie T.J. McDonald, the third-round pick working with the first-team defense at safety. That and other on-field developments will affect the Rams where it counts this season, but there's something to be said for camaraderie, too.

Along those lines, be sure to check out the video showing defensive end Chris Long charging toward a media gathering to deliver a special gift to unsuspecting cornerback Cortland Finnegan. Finnegan's split-second reaction is telling. He wasn't ticked off or even annoyed. He was laughing right along with the men who pranked him.

Camaraderie, indeed.

Note: Thanks to Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson for posting the video. Note that reporter Shane Gray was caught in the middle. Looks like Long might own him a new shirt.
