Used in the Exhibit: Play by Play - A Century of L.A. Sports Photography, 1889-1989 In 1963, the Rams traded for Rosey Grier, giving them a front quartet of (from left) Lamar Lundy, Grier, Merlin Olsen, and David "Deacon" Jones. The "Fearsome Foursome" became one of the NFL's most storied defensive lines, with Jones and Olsen creating constant havoc in opposing teams' backfields. Grier would figure in another L.A. story. While serving as Robert F. Kennedy's body-guard during the 1968 presidential campaign, he helped to subdue Kennedy's assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, at the Ambassador Hotel. Photo dated: September 9, 1967.
