1. Rams WR, Army vet Daniel Rodriguez one to root for
By Conor Orr - NFL.com
"This Memorial Day is the perfect time to recognize the ultimate sacrifice made by our veterans.
It's also a time to marvel at the accomplishments of people like Army vet Daniel Rodriguez. Rodriguez was signed after a rookie tryout with the Rams.

2. Ask Terez: Chiefs rookie camp, offensive line questions and more
By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star
"Let's jump right into this week's "People's Mailbag."
@TerezPaylor Does Conley look like a #2 WR?

3. Randy Moss appears at high school graduation to hand diploma to friend
By Robert Demovsky - ESPN
"Randy Moss has been there for Kassi Spier for a long time. He first met her at training camp when he was a rookie with the Minnesota Vikings in 1998 and she was a 4-year-old fan.
They became even closer with her when she was diagnosed with leukemia in 2000. He was there for her when her father died in a 2004 car accident and then again when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2013. So it should not have been a surprise that Moss showed up at Pelican Rapids (Minnesota) High School graduation ceremonies Friday night.
According to the Fargo (N.D.) Forum, Moss was there to hand Spier her high school diploma." READ MORE…
4. J.J. Watt's nasty bruise evokes memories of great injury moments
By Jeff Chadiha - ESPN
"The bruise started near J.J. Watt's right hip, a mass of blood spreading across his massive thigh and eventually ending just above his knee.
The sprawling reddish-purple mark suggested that the Houston Texans' All-Pro defensive end had walked away from a gruesome car crash instead of having spent an afternoon tangling with opposing offensive linemen. It took Watt nearly eight months to share the photo that illustrated the pain he endured in a Sept. 28 win over the Buffalo Bills.
It took far less time for the world to react with both awe and horror at what lengths pro athletes will go to in order to play with pain." READ MORE…
