    Rams fill WR spot with Nate Jones

    Rams fill WR spot by promoting Nate Jones
    By Jim Thomas
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    The St. Louis Rams have promoted wide receiver Nate Jones from the practice squad, filling the vacancy on the 53-man roster created when leading receiver Laurent Robinson suffered a season-ending ankle and leg injury. Robinson has been placed on the injured reserve list.

    The Rams had two street free agents in for visits Tuesday, Courtney Taylor and Larry Beavers, but decided to stay in-house and promote Jones.




    Cant say if this makes things better or not, but I wish we would have held on to Sean Walker I really liked the guy and thought he played well during pre-season.

    As much as I wanted to see some big name...

    This is how you rebuild a team. Throw people out and see if they're worth keeping around when you need them to be useful the most.

    This could be a positive. Nate Jones could see this as an opportunity and try to make the most of it. Being on the Pratice squad means your good--just not good enough to make the team. The only other place is at home--with NO prospects.

    A point that likely hasn't escaped his attention. And if he doesn't workout--next stop, the streets

    hopefully jones can step up. Losing Laurent was huge. Man this season is horrible so far.

    The one thing I hate about losing teams is when the don't give new people a chance.

    If you find one guy that comes from nothing the losses were worth it in the rebuilding process.

    Nate Jones deserves a chance to actually get in the games over the next couple of weeks.

    Hopefully, we but up some points this week.
