Tight end Jared Cook still isn’t sure what was more taxing about his recent weekend in Oklahoma. Three practices in two days with quarterback Sam Bradford and assorted Rams skill-position players. Or three days helping Bradford at his youth football camp over the same weekend.
“Those kids run you ragged” Cook said with a laugh.

High energy huh?

“Oh man I wish I had maybe a half of what they’ve got” Cook said. “They’re never run down.”

On Saturday and Sunday July 13-14 Cook and several Rams teammates helped Bradford run his youth camp in Norman Okla. About 350 youngsters ages 7-14 participated.

But for Cook and the Rams their weekend began that Friday with a pair of two-hour workouts with Bradford.

“Almost like a two-a-day if you will” Cook said. “Good quality work. Two passing sessions. And it just gave us time to get our rhythm with the quarterbacks and just some time for (Bradford) to learn us a little more.”

On Saturday July 13 the Rams worked the youth camp in the morning and then practiced by themselves in the afternoon. On Sunday July 14 they worked the youth camp only and then scattered for home.

“It was some long days” Cook said. “It was a lot of work.”

Among Rams also attending the camp Cook said were wide receivers Austin Pettis Chris Givens Brian Quick Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey; quarterbacks Kellen Clemens and Austin Davis; tight ends Mike McNeill and Cory Harkey; and running back Isaiah Pead.
