The big guy is coming, and this mini-camp will turn into his mini-camp the moment he's here. Waiting for Gilbert. The Rams have basically been doing it for a decade, only now the wait is one day long. When Sean Gilbert makes his first appearance in a Ram uniform Friday with the rest of the team's draft choices, it will be hard to deny that much of these first few days of drills and meetings haven't really been just a sweaty preparation for his arrival.

It has been a mystery all these years, a deep secret kept hidden in the private rooms of the Rams' draft-day hierarchy. When the gauntlet is down, the deadline is looming, and the tough choice must be made, whose word is law? Coach John Robinson? Executive Vice President John Shaw? Player personnel director John Math? Nobody ever knew for sure but those three, and they weren't saying. Everybody else had to guess.

Kicker Tony Zendejas is questionable with a sore left leg, which means that, because the team recently released Jerry Kauric, the only other kicker on the roster, free-agent punter Steven Domingos could be doing the kicking tonight. Domingos, who appears to have a slight edge in the wide-open punting position with a 45-yard average in the preseason, did some kicking two years ago at San Francisco State and a little last year as a semipro punter in Fresno.

By Sunday night, John Robinson had said his goodbys and officially ended his nine-year run as coach of the Rams. By evening Monday, Rams Park was quiet, dark and empty--a ghost town for a ghost team.

The Rams, unable to communicate with Barry Redden through normal channels, sent him an open letter Friday when they acquired running back Rob Carpenter from the New York Giants for a sixth-round draft choice in 1987. Wherever he is, Redden may finally have escaped from the shadow of Eric Dickerson. "He refuses to talk to us," Coach John Robinson said. "He may decide not to play this year, and we have to be prepared for that."
