The Los Angeles Rams are making history in 2018—and it has nothing to do with acquiring Aqib Talib or Ndamukong Suh this offseason.

The Rams have become the first NFL team to include men on their official spirit cheerleading squad, as reported by USA Today. After going through grueling tryouts, Quinton Peron and Napoleon Jinnies earned spots in L.A.
