I wanted to post this on Friday because I thought it was interesting.

On May 20th in 1955 legendary Rams running back Wendell Tyler was born.

On May 20th in 1951 Rams standout Cullen Bryant was born. On that same day Terry Nelson, a three-year starter at tight end (eight years with the team) was born.
