Jake McQuaide Named to 2018 Pro Bowl

Rams long snapper Jake McQuaide will be making his second career trip to the Pro Bowl this January, joining six of his fellow teammates.

And Hekker took to Twitter to congratulate his teammate on the honor.

Whitworth Gets Back to Work in the Gym

Looks like there is no real offseason for Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth. The 36-year old was spotted in the ring at Fox Sports’ NFL Insider Jay Glazer’s boxing gym in West Hollywood on Wednesday. Though he may be one of the oldest players on the Rams roster, the All-Pro offensive lineman is still one of the most hardworking in the league as evidenced by his offseason workout regimen.
