Rams draft their former janitor

Mo Alexander used to work as a janitor cleaning the Rams’ stadium after games. This year he’ll be playing in the same stadium for the Rams.

Alexander, a former Utah State safety, was drafted by the Rams in the fourth round. But two years ago, while he was suspended by Utah State for a fight with a teammate, he was back in his hometown of St. Louis and working on the clean-up crew at the Edward Jones Dome after Rams games.

Last year Alexander was reinstated to the Utah State team and had a very good season, and he also had a workout for the Rams that coach Jeff Fisher described as “outstanding.” And so when the Rams saw him still available in the fourth round, they grabbed him.

Alexander will have a much more lucrative job at the Edward Jones Dome now.
