Rams brass indicated at a Wednesday press conference that it was in contract discussions with free agent defensive lineman Jason Jones. Coach Jeff Fisher said the Rams were optimistic about signing Jones, who visited club headquarters Tuesday night and into Wednesday.

Jones might be getting away. Worse for St. Louis, he could be going to a division rival.

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that Jones has scheduled a free agent visit to the Seattle Seahawks, set for Thursday. The Seahawks need pass-rushing upgrades, and Jones can provide that in spades from the interior.

According to the PFT Hot 100, Jones is the fifth best player left in unrestricted free agency.
