    Rich Saul Passes Away

    It is with a very heavy heart that I must inform the Claneam family that Rich Saul has lost his battle with cancer, and has passed away. I offer my condolences to his family, and my gratitude to Rich for his years with the Rams, and his years of service to the community. You will be missed.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!!

    Re: Rich Saul Passes Away

    I'm sorry to hear that as he was a terrific player for us, but more importantly he'll be missed by his family. My condolences. We've been losing too many of our old "friends" lately. Rich and the others such as Merlin Olsen, Lamar Lundy and Cullen Bryant to name a few made a lot of my Sundays more pleasurable. Thank you, Rest in Peace.

    Rest in peace rich. Rambros everywhere should take a minute to think about what he did for the team. He was a great ram for a very long time. In the era prior to free agency, he was an old school guy that gave years and years to the team, performing at the highest level without making a ton of money. He played hard and he played hurt and he was part of a tremendous tradition of great rams offensive linemen. Its unfortunate that many of the great rams fans on this board are too young to have seen him play.

    He will walk with the chosen in Rams heaven. Super guy. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.

    Ramming speed to all

    Sincere sympathy to Saul's family and loved ones for this loss.

    Saul, a Michigan State alum, was with the Rams for the entirety of his 12-year career. He made the Pro Bowl six straight times, from 1976 to 1981, his final year in the league. The Rams picked him in the eighth round of the 1970 NFL Draft.
