LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Rams five long weeks in training camp are finally finished. Air Max 97 Sale Mens . Their busy moving trucks are making their final trip of the year. Even the omnipresent Hard Knocks cameras will be gone shortly.The Rams epic 2016 road show is almost finished -- not counting a little trip to London next month.Its time for this traveling team to settle into Thousand Oaks and the Coliseum. Its time to start the real work of the Rams Southern California homecoming.I think the organization has done a fantastic job on blocking out distractions in relocating, Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said. Were going to move three times in five months, and all these guys do is come to practice every day, come to meetings every day. Thats their routine. The most calm part of what we do is coming out here on the practice field, coming into the meeting rooms. Theres not a lot of new stuff.The new stuff is mostly over, but the Rams are hoping they wont go back to their old familiar standard of mediocrity this season.Los Angeles fans who gave up on the team two decades ago might not know the Rams havent had a winning record since 2003 and havent made the playoffs since 2004. St. Louis fans know all about the past decade of irrelevance, capped by four straight losing seasons under coach Jeff Fisher before the move.The Rams havent been incompetent in Fishers tenure, but they havent been special, either. After making relatively few changes to their roster during their relocation season, its tough to tell how Los Angeles will see a team thats markedly improved from the club that went 7-9 in St. Louis last season.Fisher seems confident his Rams can take the next step in a city firmly behind the new faces in those familiar horned helmets.You cant help but get a boost from the way weve been supported since we got back here, Fisher said. I think youll see that from every guy.Heres what to watch while the Rams homecoming season begins:THIRD-STRING GOFF?: The Rams mortgaged a chunk of their future to draft Jared Goff, but their rookie quarterback hasnt seized control of the team in the way Fisher cautiously hoped when he was drafted.Case Keenum is expected to remain Los Angeles starter to begin the season, and Goff might be the third-stringer behind Sean Mannion. The Rams insist they arent disappointed in the deliberate start to Goffs tenure, and he is determined to win the job eventually. Every day gets better, Goff said. I feel like Ive grown exponentially. ... I dont think Ill ever be complacent and happy with where I am, no matter what. You always want to get better. Thatll remain true throughout my career.GURLEYS GRIND: The Rams offense is built around second-year running back Todd Gurley, the NFLs offensive rookie of the year in 2015. A year after missing most of training camp while recovering from surgery, the speedster is fully healthy after barely playing in the preseason and going through most of training camp with his teammates forbidden to tackle him. Gurley seems eager to carry a heavy load as the biggest star on Hollywoods new team.THATS NOT OFFENSIVE: The Rams had the NFLs worst total offense and worst passing offense last season. They drafted Goff, receiver Pharoh Cooper and tight ends Tyler Higbee and Temarrick Hemingway, but havent added much more talent. Fisher has turned over the offense to coordinator Rob Boras and passing game coordinator Mike Groh, who will work together to coax new success out of largely the same players who struggled mightily last season.BOTTOM LINE: The defensive line continues to be the Rams greatest strength. Aaron Donald, Robert Quinn, Michael Brockers and William Hayes are still an overpowering unit that can cause trouble for any offensive line or running game. Los Angeles will lean heavily on the citys new Fearsome Foursome (or Fivesome, if you include Eugene Sims) while the rest of the revamped defense gets rolling.HOMECOMING GAME: After the Monday-night season opener in Santa Clara, the Rams will formally return to the Coliseum on Sept. 18 against the Seattle Seahawks and former USC coach Pete Carroll. Los Angeles has only one home game in September and one in October, which wont make this tumultuous season any easier. If the Rams can stay in the playoff race despite playing in one of the NFLs toughest divisions, they finish the year with three of their final four at the Coliseum.---AP NFL websites: and Nike Air Max 97 On Sale . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. Cheap Air Max 97 Purple China . Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career. .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury. The Dallas Mavericks and face of the franchise Dirk Nowitzki have finalized their expected new deal with another bump in pay that sets up the star forward to earn $50 million over the next two seasons and play until age 40, league sources told ESPN.Sources said Friday that the Mavericks have tacked an additional $10 million onto the original two-year, $40 million contract that the sides, as ESPN first reported, agreed to earlier this month.The new pact, sources say, calls for Nowitzki to earn $25 million in each of the next two seasons, though he has said repeatedly that he will decide about playing beyond 2016-17 after gauging how he feels at seasons end.The second year of the contract, sources say, is fully guaranteed for $5 million of the $25 million at the Mavericks option, although any decision about Nowitzkis playing future is expected to be made in conjunction with owner Mark Cuban, given the long-standing and close bond the two share.Dirk gets to do what Dirk wants, Cuban said in June during a public appearance. Period. End of story. ... Dirks done so much for this franchise, hes earned that opportunity.The significant spike in pay comes after the future Hall of Famer played on an ultra-steep discount for the past two seasons in which he earned $8 million-plus annually.Nowitzkis previous contract was a three-year, $25 million deal, which represented a hometown discount intended to provide the Mavericks with the salary-cap flexibility needed to construct a contender during his twilight yearss. Cheap Air Max 97 Grey China. The Mavs, however, missed on multiple free-agent targets and have failed to advance past the first round since their 2011 title run, although Nowitzki led them in scoring again this past season.Dallas rallied from two early disappointments in free agency this summer and used its substantial salary-cap space to make some promising pickups. After being spurned by Miamis Hassan Whiteside and Memphis Mike Conley, Dallas capitalized on the sudden availability of Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut in Golden State -- in the wake of the Warriors success in the Kevin Durant sweepstakes -- to agree on a four-year, $94.4 million max deal to sign Barnes and a trade to acquire Bogut.In his 18-year career, Nowitzki has won an MVP award in both the regular season (2007) and NBA Finals (2011) to go with his 13 All-Star selections. With 29,491 career points, Nowitzki is also on pace to surpass Wilt Chamberlain and move into the top five on the leagues all-time scoring list during the 2017-18 season, as long as he avoids significant injury.Nowitzki has acknowledged in the past that his decision to stay in Dallas would be much more difficult if the Mavs hadnt broken through to win their first title in 2011. If he ends up playing two more seasons, Nowitzki would join Kobe Bryant as the only players in league history to spend an entire two-decade career with a single franchise. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
