Rams Coming To Carbondale?

This is potential big new if it pans out... The St. Louis Post Dispatch is reporting the Rams are looking for a new place to hold training camp and Carbondale is a possible destination.

I will make some calls to SIU to see if this is really a possibility.
If memory serves me correctly...A few years ago the Chicago Bears visited Carbondale when looking for a new training camp home.

Here is the link to the article:
This is copied from the St. Louis Post Dispatch:


Add Southern Illinois University Carbondale to the list of potential Rams training camp sites. Team sources told the Post-Dispatch on Wednesday the Rams are considering SIU-Carbondale as well as SIU-Edwardsville and Lindenwood as potential camp sites. In addition, the team has not ruled out training at Rams Park this summer.

Despite earlier indications that a decision could be reached this week, team sources said it may take an additional two or three weeks to decide on a camp site.

I talked with Tom Weber (Director Of Media Services) at SIU and he tells me there has been some talk in recent months concerning the Rams holding training camp at SIU, but realistically it probably won't happen in the immediate future. The school is in the process of upgrading facilities, so hosting an NFL Training Camp would not be feasible at the moment.
