Ever since their move back to Los Angeles, all the Rams seem to have done is make headlines for both good and bad reasons.

The Rams traded up for the number one pick in this year's draft, starred in this year's season of TV series Hard Knocks and they have now made the top overall draft pick inactive for week one.

Easing into it

The Rams selected former California quarterback Jared Goff with the first overall pick this year, but their future face of the franchise will not even be in uniform when they start the season next Monday night.

LA make the short trip to San Francisco for their season opener next week but Goff has officially been listed inactive for the game.

The first overall pick finished his first pre- season in the NFL as the Rams third string quarterback and now it looks like Case Keenum will be leading the team into 2016.

Goff is currently the third choice QB on the Rams roster behind Keenum and last year's third round pick Sean Mannion.

Despite the fact that the top draft pick is third on the depth chart in LA, head coach Jeff Fisher is adamant that he has impressed them.

"He's going to be a great player. As we've said from day one, we're not rushing him. We don't have to rush it. I'm really happy with where he is right now." - Fisher on Goff

Some fans may struggle to believe Fisher's comments - especially given the way that the Philadelphia Eagles have treated this year's second overall pick Carson Wentz.

The man taken one spot behind Goff is named as the starter for Philadelphia when they host the Cleveland Browns in week one.

This could all however just be the first headline of what is already going to be a historic season for the Rams.
