    How about some more:

    From Jim Thomas on Twitter

    Barrett Jones: Rams G/C Barrett Jones bigger and stronger
    Barrett Jones - C - STL - Apr. 30 - 3:31 pm et

    According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Rams second-year G/C Barrett Jones looks noticeably bigger and stronger.
    Jones, the 113th overall pick in last year's draft, didn't play a single snap as a rookie. At 6-foot-4 and 308 pounds, he needed to bulk up. Technically, he can play all five positions on the offensive line but doesn't project as a starter at any. Jones will battle for a job to be part of the 46-man active gameday roster. Apr. 30 - 3:31 pm et


    I cant' find where I read it, but somewhere I read that he lost 15 lbs of soft weight then gained back 9 lbs of hard weight (muscle).

    Yeah I heard that as well on ESPN101.. I think it was Sofli said he they wanted him to lose 20 he lost 19 and has put back 9 pounds the right way.

    Re: How about some good news

    This sounds more positive than the buzz he generated earlier this week:

    Joe Lyons - St Louis Post Dispatch
    May 05, 2014 2:45 am

    BRITT LOOKS GOOD EARLY

    He has only been with the Rams a short time, but former Tennessee wideout Kenny Britt seems to be adjusting quickly.

    “Well, we’re two weeks into the program and he’s done a great job,’’ Fisher said. “He’s healthy, he’s running and he’s having a blast. I think it helps that we’re trying to create as much competition as we can, so certainly Kenny has added to that. I think we brought him in for a reason, to make plays.”

    Signed on March 31, Britt, 25, was a first-round pick by the Fisher-coached Titans in 2009 and enjoyed solid seasons in 2009 (42 catches, 701 yards, three touchdowns) and 2010 (42 catches, 775 yards, nine touchdowns), but injuries and inconsistency have slowed him in recent seasons.

    Last fall, the 6-foot-3, 223-pound Britt had a career-low 11 catches for 96 yards.

    Fisher did not rule out adding another receiver later this week.

    “Then again, if the guy’s there, at that position, at the right time, it’s sometimes hard to pass up.”


    And I really like the underlined portions.

    Hey Bernie, maybe this was Snisher's answer to the pending loss of Bailey. Did you consider that buster?

    I'd say that was more likely TJ Moe but maybe it was Britt.
