Free agent defensive tackle Jason Jones left St. Louis on Thursday morning. His next destination: Seattle, where he will visit with the Seahawks. Jones left town without an agreement with the Rams, but is was not for a lack of trying on the Rams' part.

Cortland Finnegan, who the Rams signed earlier in the week, took Jones out to eat on Wednesday night, trying to convince his former teammate in Tennessee to follow him to St. Louis, where Finnegan promised something special was happening.

"There's just such an upswing in things we can do here and you have the building blocks and the pieces and I'd love to see this thing take off," Finnegan said. "That's where I'm at, that's what I told him [Jones] and he knows that."

Finngan's sincerity was part of a two-pronged effort, as the Rams continued dialog with Jones' agent. General manager Les Snead said that Jones was expected to make a decision soon.

"We're still talking with his representation," Snead said. "He will leave here and go make a decision and from there we should know relatively soon, at least probably through the weekend or into Monday."

Jones was said to still be mulling an offer from the Titans as well.
