Rams haven't had contact with Tre Mason in seven monthts

The running back was arrested in March and has shown worrying behavior this offseason.

The Los Angeles Rams haven't had contact with running back Tre Mason for seven months, according to ESPN writers Adam Caplan and Dan Graziano. According to ESPN, team officials have reached out to Mason but haven't had any luck. The Rams are unaware of the running back's mental state and his whereabouts.

Teammate Greg Robinson was in contact with Mason this offseason, but Mason has changed his number multiple times, making communication difficult. The team has remained in contact with Mason's family and agent, Bus Cook, but have no updates on his condition or location. 

Coach Jeff Fisher hasn't spoke to Mason since the end of the season and the team's checkout physicals. 

"Right now, we're more concerned with Tre Mason's well-being than we are his football career. We're going to continue to try to reach him to see where he's at," Fisher said, according to The Score

Saturday, the Rams placed Mason on the Reserve/Did not report list as the running back was not present when players were required to meet for camp. Earlier in the offseason, Mason was excused from OTAs because of legal troubles. 

Mason was tasered and arrested in Hollywood, Florida in March, according to ESPN and a police report. The former Auburn Tiger faced charges of suspicion of marijuana possession, reckless driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and resisting arrest for driving away from the officer in pursuit.

According to TMZ Sports, police visited Mason in July and reported suspicious behavior. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office filed a report of the incident, which detailed Mason's erratic behavior. Mason reportedly told the officers he would call the White House to have them fired, along with making comments about Al Qaeda. Officers also noted a hole in the wall, a broken vase and a cut on Mason's hand.

Mason was admitted for evaluation after the July incident.

The Rams drafted Mason in the third round of the 2014 draft. Mason quickly became the starter, playing in 12 games and gaining 765 yards and four touchdowns. Last season, rookie Todd Gurley took over the starting job, leaving Mason with limited opportunity in the running game.
