The lights are still on Rams Park, and, apparently, the work continues on some big free agent moves. After signing Cortland Finnegan to a five-year, $50 million deal, the St. Louis Rams may sign defensive tackle Jason Jones before the night is over, according to Jim Thomas of the Post Dispatch.

Jones gives the Rams defensive line a young pass rusher with a track record of getting to the quarterback. He has 15.5 sacks in four years of playing. He was misplaced on the outside last year in Tennessee, after Fisher left.

With Chris Long and Robert Quinn on the outside, the Rams could have a disruptive defensive line, and spritely.

Jones' deal, if it happens, will be interesting. The Rams had $30 million to work with, and they spent $10 million or so on Finnegan.

Normally, it seems like teams load up on free agents at the expensive of their draft picks. But the Rams loaded up on draft picks less than a week ago. This franchise is very well positioned for both the near- and short-term.
