The Rams had a special visitor Friday as the team prepares for the Super Bowl.
The Dodgers paid a visit to the Rams’ training facility to wish the players good luck when they face the Patriots in Super Bowl 53 on Feb. 3. The Rams are hoping to bring an NFL championship back to Los Angeles for the first time since the Raiders won Super Bowl 18 in 1984, before they moved back to Oakland.

“We shook hands … they said good luck and congratulations. You like that type of support,” Aaron Donald said (via ESPN) after greeting several Dodgers players, including Justin Turner, Walker Buehler and Cody Bellinger.

Rams running back Todd Gurley said: “We appreciate those guys coming through. I just seen Freese and thought, ‘Oh s—, that’s David Freese,’ and I remember him from when he was with the Cardinals. … It was a surprise, but we appreciate those guys coming and their support.”
