The St. Louis Rams approach a contract with Jason Jones, another Jeff Fisher acolyte set to leave the Tennessee Titans in a wild start to 2012 NFL Free Agency.

Late Tuesday night the St. Louis Rams were reportedly close to signing their second Tennessee Titans free agent—Jason Jones, who'd replace Fred Robbins at defensive tackle, was to be close to joining Cortland Finnegan in the Rams' newly Jeff Fisher-friendly defense. Nothing happened then, but Jones still looks like the next-likeliest player to partake of the Rams' $30 million in new salary cap space.

Jones, 26 years old next year, would be part of a defensive line that has, in the space of two offseasons, gone from old-and-great to old-and-terrible to, now, young and at least pretty-good-looking. With Chris Long and Robert Quinn on either side of him he's unlikely to have to go back to defensive end, an arrangement he was uncomfortable with last season in Tennessee.

There's a long way left to go in the NFL's offseason, but so far teams are acting as though they've been locked out all over again. Lucky for Rams fans, they look to be as active as everyone else.
