    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.

                What about WR James Jones?
                by demiurge
                If there's one place that could use some injection of veteran leadership, its the extremely young WR corps. Jones seems like a decent fit at the right price - a capable guy with a great work ethic that could be a second coach to the kids.

                Might be out of our price range after resigning Saffold, but definitely worth a look IMO.

                Barrett Jones passes Rams' physical

                By Terry McCormick | National Football Post 18 hours ago..

                Offensive lineman Barrett Jones has passed his physical, clearing him to leave the non-football injury list and join the St. Louis Rams' training camp roster.

                Jones, a key part of the University of Alabama's standout offensive line, underwent foot surgery in the off-season after playing in the national championship game with the injury.

                Will we draft Julio Jones if...
                by xkidflowx
                Will we draft Julio Jones if we pick up Santonio Holmes / V Jax / Sidney Rice??

                i think we should still draft julio jones if he's there .. even if we pick up a big name receiver .
                the vet could help Jones out .. and hey maybe we'll have a good receiving corps like back then .. holt/bruce
