Rams players say goodbye to City of St. Louis
The City of St. Louis learned the devastating news on Tuesday that the Rams are uprooting to Los Angeles.
Rams players were quick to jump on Twitter and wish the city that they called home for years goodbye.
Defensive end Chris Long played in St. Louis since 2008 when the franchise spent the No. 2 overall pick on him.
Humbly, eternally gratefully: Thank you St. Louis. I'm sorry we fell short the past 8 years. You treated me like family anyways. I love yall
