Former Bears and Lions RB Kevin Jones visited the Rams this week. The Rams also had seven veteran players try out, including former Patriots DT Damione Lewis, who started all 16 games with Carolina in 2009.
The other players trying out with St. Louis were LB Eric Alexander, whom the Patriots cut Sept. 3; WR Reggie Brown, whom the Buccaneers released Sept. 6; WR Yamon Figurs, whom the Raiders released Sept. 16; DT Dre Moore, whom the Buccaneers released Sept. 4; and DB Cletis Gordon and DT Jimmy Saddler-McQueen, who were released by Dallas Sept. 4.
Jones, 28, last appeared in an NFL game with Chicago in 2008.
The way we see it
The tryouts for Lewis, Moore and Saddler-McQueen come after starting DT Darell Scott suffered a high ankle sprain Sunday at Oakland.
