The Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder, who played football in high school, tweeted "I miss football...can I get a tryout @RamsNFL something like Tebows?"
The Rams heard his calling and invited Pederson out to practice in Thousand Oaks, where he caught passes from fellow bay-area native and Rams starting quarterback Jared Goff.
"He just got named the starter, and to stay out after practice -- he's probably got a ton of things to do. We appreciate it and it was a lot of fun," Pederson said.
The outfielder said he's got what it takes to play in the NFL, but only under one condition: As long as he doesn't take a hit by one of the players.
