Rams haven’t talked to Tre Mason in seven months, worried about condition


The Rams have greater concerns than when Tre Mason might show up for training camp.

At the moment, their concern is Tre Mason, amid growing concerns about his health.

According to Dan Graziano and Adam Caplan of ESPN, the Rams haven’t heard from the troubled running back in seven months.

The Rams put him on the reserve/did not report list last week, after reports that the cops showed up at his house for the fifth time in four months.

“Right now, we’re more concerned with Tre Mason’s well-being than we are his football career,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. “We’re going to continue to try to reach him to see where he’s at.”

According to the Palm Beach Post, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reported that Mason was “admitted for evaluation” last month after officers visited his mother’s residence to find him acting strangely, with cuts to his hands and a broken vase nearby and a hole in the wall.

During that visit, Mason told officers “he was going to call the White House and [and that the deputies] were all going to lose [their] jobs. The report also stated: “As he walked out of the room he also stated the police were responsible for teaching [Al-Qaeda] how to fly planes.”

He also told the cops they didn’t have the authority to enter his home. “He then informed us that he was used to being the entertainment for others,” the report said, “but now we [the deputies] were his entertainment and he clapped for us.”

Mason was also arrested in March on charges of reckless driving, marijuana possession and resisting arrest.

They’ve talked to family members and his agent, but haven’t been able to get a clear answer on where he is or his condition. Former Auburn teammate Greg Robinson had texted back and forth with him at some point this offseason, but Mason has changed numbers multiple times which has made staying in touch difficult.

  1. If he’s having issues with mental stability as certainly sounds to be the case, it can be an extremely scary and unnerving thing to go through. Mental issues are stigmatized and thus many who suffer don’t seek the help they need, for fear of being locked up in a facility and for what their friends and family might think, not to mention perceived possible professional ramifications. The most important thing for him right now is to just talk to someone that can help him. I for one hope he gets the help he needs.

  2. wow….sad story, hope he gets the help he needs. mental issues are serious concerns

  3. What is preventing any of the Los Angeles Rams brass from getting on a plane, train or taking a car to make a visit to Tre Mason?

    I am not saying they should but don’t issue these statements about ‘trying to reach him,’ when they know his address.

  4. The curse of the SEC running back continues.

    Yeah, I wish my team was “cursed” with Todd Gurley.

  5. “JJ on line one”

    Almost made it through a day without someone mentioning Dallas (in a story that doesn’t have anything to do with them) picking up a player with off the field issues. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

  6. I’d like to think Tre Mason isn’t missing, he’s sitting in his car in St. Louis wondering why the rest of the team hasn’t shown up for training camp. I know it’s not true, but I’d like to believe it.

  7. To the poster rrhoe:

    I understand and agree with your statement. However, my initial point was addressing their hypocrisy and their ‘worried’ front. To say you’re worried and haven’t heard from him in months is laughable because they know the exact location of his home, the one where police have been called and in contact with him on multiple occasions.

    Because they have Todd Gurley and better plans for Mason’s roster spot.

  9. This is what happens when you have an absentee owner like Kroenke and a loosie goosie Jeff Fisher.

    What’s worse is that this will be a “Hard Knocks” script. Then again, Marvin Demoff can take it out so the Rams look competent.

  10. I’ve been tellin people for years… leave that spice “synthetic marijuana” as they call it, ALONE. Make ya go cray cray.

    If you’re gonna toss aside a wealthy football career for drugs… just stick to regular weed. Like Ricky Williams did.

  11. It’s obvious this young man is bi-polar. He simply needs to be admitted to a facility and given the proper medication so he can successfully continue his career and more importantly, his life.

  12. Probably, the early onset of CTE. Who takes more hits in football than a running back. Tre isn’t the biggest guy around either.

  13. I think the Rams O Line should look in the mirror. This guys been hit in the head too often.
    Stan Kroenke can afford some rehab for him.

  14. Since his mental health condition is already being publicised and described in excruciating detail for no apparent reason other than for idle entertainment, I will add that he doesn’t sound nearly as mixed up as Donald Trump does on most days.

  15. Sounds like mental illness, CTE, synthetic marijuana or a combination of all three. The family needs to aggressively chase the problem and get a diagnosis and treatment or they will lose him. Best of luck to them.

  16. seems to me like we got a lenay kekua situation goin on here. can we be sure tre mason ever really existed? i mean to do that, youd have to have watched a rams game, so im not sure anyone out there can confirm.
