Getty Images The Los Angeles Rams declined their team option for CB Nickell Robey-Coleman on March 17.
Nickell Robey-Coleman has had this game circled since the schedule came out in May. It’s still highlighted in bright marker.
The former Rams cornerback spent three years in Los Angeles before they unceremoniously declined his option last March and let him hit free agency.It was a hard financial decision for them to make and even if Robey-Coleman understands the NFL is a business — a phrase he repeated many times during Wednesday’s Zoom call with reporters — it still stings him to the core.
The 28-year-old is arguably the best slot corner in football, a fact he plans to “re-showcase” to Sean McVay, Jared Goff, Cooper Kupp and anyone else who gets in his way. That Sept. 20 date couldn’t come soon enough and now it’s finally here. Let’s go.
“Yes, that was the first game I circled on the schedule. I still got it circled now,” Robey-Coleman told reporters. “When I saw the schedule, I was like, ‘yes I got the Rams’ and I was just like, ‘yes, let’s go, let’s do it’ — and it’s going to be fun. I’m looking forward to it”

But not in a malicious or vengeful way. No, Robey-Coleman understood it was a business decision — the Rams created $5 million in salary-cap space by moving on — and he looks fondly on his time on the West Coast. He went to a Super Bowl with the Rams in 2018 while being involved in the most controversial missed pass-interference call in NFL history. It’s “all love,” according to the Florida native, and he couldn’t be happier to be a Philadelphia Eagle. He took less money to do it.
“I was kind of surprised but it’s a business, and that’s the way things are in this league,” Robey-Coleman said. “That’s the type of things that happen in this league, and I still feel blessed. I feel blessed to accept what happened. I’m grateful at the end of the day, I got memories with that team and we did some great things together. When they decided to decline my option, it definitely gave me a whole another level of motivation to get out there and really re-showcase myself.”

One other advantage of having a former Rams player on the roster: he plays football and he knows things. Robey-Coleman couldn’t help but smile when talking about the tips he’s been sharing with his new teammates in Philly. He has clued them into all of McVay’s dirty little secrets, aka “window dressing,” especially how he disguises those jet motion shifts.
“It’s all window dressing,” Robey-Coleman said. “He does it over the course of four quarters and everything starts to look alike, and so you just have to stay focused on your keys and pay attention to your guy … all the motions and all the movement and everything, you can kind of get through that after a while, and that’s about it. He keeps everything real aligned, as far as first down, second down, third down … everything kind of looks alike.”

Until the Rams get into longer down and distance, like a third-and-10 or first-and-20. Either way, the Eagles are prepared for all those scenarios. Robey-Coleman also gave a huge tip to Miles Sanders on what to expect from All-Pro Aaron Donald. His advice? Be ready.
“I was telling Boobie, man, just be ready,” Robey-Coleman said. “Be ready because Aaron is coming to play, his mind is right, he’s the type of a guy — he’s a real man — he’s the type of guy, he goes about his business, every single day, day in day out. Be ready.”

Man sues Starbucks for burns to genitals that make sex painful and awkward
A California man is suing Starbucks for severe burns he suffered across his body, including his genitals, when the lid popped off his hot tea at a drive-through – making sexual intimacy “painful and awkward,” according to reports.
Tommy Piluyev pulled up along with his family to the Starbucks in Roseville in his BMW on Oct. 5, 2018, when he was 22, and ordered two grande Honey Citrus Mint teas, the Sacramento Bee reported.
“As the window associate reached to the SUV’s window sill to deliver the second sleeved and lidded cup to Mr. Piluyev, the lid lost its seal with the cup lip and dislodged from the top of the cup,” according to the federal lawsuit filed in Sacramento.
“Hot tea spilled on Mr. Piluyev’s left hand during the transfer, the cup overturned on the window sill and hot tea poured onto Mr. Piluyev’s hands, stomach and pelvic area,” the suit continues.
“Covered in scalding tea, and unable to open his door to escape because he was near the drive-through window, Mr. Piluyev quickly put the SUV into gear and accelerated from the window. He pulled into an adjacent parking lot, hastily exited the vehicle stripped off his sweat pants.”
By the time he reached a hospital, Piluyev suffered “partial-thickness burns with blistering across the lower left abdomen, thighs, penis, scrotum, peritoneum and buttocks,” the suit says.
He also can no longer play the piano because of the burns he suffered on nine finger, according to his claim.
Piluyev spent 11 days in at the UC Davis Medical Center’s burn unit, where “he required intravenous pain control along with intensive and invasive wound care,” according to the suit.
“Mr. Piluyev could not use his hands or fingers for any purpose, including personal care. He became entirely dependent on the medical staff,” it continues.
“Upon discharge, Mr. Piluyev’s wife performed her husband’s wound and personal care. Mr. Piluyev transitioned from IV narcotics to gabapentin, oxycodone, Tylenol and ibuprofen. In the five months post-discharge Mr. Piluyev gradually regained the ability to walk, the ability to sense touch in some of his fingers, the ability to hold his young child, and eventually, to use a computer keyboard,” the suit says.
“Mr. Piluyev remained unable to play the piano,” it adds. “The sensitivity and permanent skin discoloration and disfigurement of Mr. Piluyev’s genitals and inner thighs made eventual intimacy awkward and painful.”Alamy Stock Photo
Piluyev and his wife, Liudmila Maftey, also are suing Pactiv Packaging Inc., which the suit says provided the cups and lids, for alleged negligence and product liability.
The couple’s attorney, Whitney Davis, alleges that the defendants were aware of 80 complaints a day of lids coming off cups, and that they “had knowledge of additional complaints and burn incidents from employees, managers and associates concerning defective cups and lids.”
“The nerves have grown back and healed back and he learned to walk again. Because that took a while to learn how to walk again with those comprehensive injuries around that whole section of your body,” Davis told CBS Sacramento.
The tea is served at temperatures ranging from 190 to 205 degrees, according to the lawsuit.
A Starbucks spokeswoman said the Seattle-based coffee giant is reviewing the lawsuit.
“Our partners take great pride in ensuring our beverages are crafted with care and delivered to customers safely,” the rep told the Sacramento Bee. “And we take our responsibility to provide a safe environment seriously and will continue to do so.”
