We’ve done a number of updates on NFC West opponents during training camp this week, but the LA Rams face a situation of a much different -- and very concerning — nature: Running back Tre Mason hasn’t reported to camp and family, friends have no idea where he is. Nobody with the organization has apparently talked to Mason since 2015. He was arrested in March and has had five incidents involving police in the last four months.
Compounding the concern is this July 23 incident with Mason, as reported by TMZ:
According to the report, filed by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office ... cops say Tre's mother had called because her son was "acting unusual and making irrational statements."
When Tre saw the cops, he threatened to call the White House and have them all fired -- and made bizarre statements about Al Qaeda ... so says the report.
Upon inspection, cops noticed a hole that had been punched in the wall of Tre's bedroom and a broken vase and lamp. Tre also had a cut on his hand, but was refusing medical attention.
This clearly seems to go way beyond a player just staying away from camp for any number of reasons and could be related to a mental health issue.
Mason is supposed to be going into this third NFL season after being a third round pick out of Auburn in 2014. Head coach Jeff Fisher had previously acknowledged that the team was moving forward under the assumption that Mason would not be with them, but now everyone would at least like to know where he is.
