OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — If the Rams are headed back to Southern California, their long-suffering local fans are ready to welcome them home.

The St. Louis Rams were greeted by a huge contingent of jersey-wearing, flag-waving fans chanting "L.A. Rams!" as they took the practice fields Monday in Oxnard, an hour west of Los Angeles.

The Rams are in Ventura County for three days of workouts at the Dallas Cowboys' training complex. But they're also providing a tantalizing appetizer for fans who know the franchise is weighing a return to Los Angeles, its home for 49 years until 1995.

Two decades away haven't dimmed the passion among their most faithful devotees. They watched and cheered as Nick Foles, Robert Quinn and their teammates went through drills two days after a preseason game in Oakland.
