The Rams signed former Dallas Cowboy defensive tackle Jimmie Jones on Thursday night to a four-year contract for $7.7 million. Next in view: Atlanta quarterback Chris Miller, or possibly Green Bay's Brett Favre. The Rams pursued Jones, who earned $385,000 in 1993, after hearing rumors that defensive end Robert Young might receive an offer sheet from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Mark O'Donnell Tony-winning co-writer of 'Hairspray' Mark O'Donnell, 58, the Tony Award-winning writer behind such quirky and clever Broadway shows as "Hairspray and "Cry-Baby," died Monday in New York. His agent, Jack Tantleff, said the writer collapsed in the lobby of his apartment complex on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. O'Donnell won the 2003 Tony for best book of a musical for co-writing "Hairspray" with Thomas Meehan, and the pair earned Tony nominations in 2008 for doing the same for "Cry-Baby.

Knox said an MRI exam of linebacker Joe Kelly's injured knee showed no tear, and he's expected to be ready for Sunday's game. . . . Knox won't make a determination until Sunday on defensive tackle Jimmie Jones (ankle), who was held out of practice. If Jones isn't ready to play, David Rocker is a candidate to start, along with Gerald Robinson and rookie Brad Ottis.

Jimmy Jones, who trained the Triple Crown thoroughbred champion Citation and never tired of talking about the great horse's feats for more than 50 years afterward, died Sunday at St. Francis Hospital in Marysville, Mo. He was 94. Jones had been treated for pneumonia in May and he missed the running of this year's Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, where he annually watched from a lifetime box seat.

What's wrong with the following sentence? The Rams signed Dallas defensive tackle Jimmie Jones to a four-year contract for $7.7 million, including a $2-million signing bonus. "The Rams?" "$7.7 million?" "$2-million signing bonus?" How unlike the Rams: They spend lots of money, they place a call to Deion Sanders, they win their regular-season opener. Has Georgia Frontiere abdicated? Has John Shaw been impeached? Has Jay Zygmunt been kidnaped?

Dallas defensive tackle Jimmie Jones visited Rams Park on Wednesday and designated the Rams "at the top of my list" of teams he's considering signing with. More than 20 teams have inquired about Jones, an unrestricted free agent who has visited Detroit and has been in close contact with Miami and the Patriots. Jay Zygmunt, Ram senior vice president, said the team hasn't made a contract offer to Jones, but he will be in contact with Jones' agent, Drew Rosenhaus of Miami.

Jimmie Jones has a new uniform, a pricey new three-year, $7.7-million contract, and a comfortable new spot on the Ram defensive line next to tackle Sean Gilbert. So where does that leave Marc Boutte, who started at left defensive tackle last season? "I have no problems with being the backup," Boutte said. Jones worked out with the Rams' first-team defense for most of Saturday's mini-camp practice.

Miami gave Florida something to think about for the next five years, when this bitter rivalry is resumed. Like, how smart the Gators were to break it off. Replacing the Hurricanes with Montana State on next year's schedule, with the stated intention of developing a national reputation, could be the better part of valor, indeed. Certainly, Kerwin Bell is not going to miss Miami, which beat his team, 31-4.

Jimmy Jones figured Wednesday was an important day, but then he heard on the radio that Wednesday could be Make-or-Break Day. He panicked. He said that by the time he got to the pitcher's mound to face the Chicago Cubs, his arms, hands and knees were shaking. And soon Padre Manager Larry Bowa was shaking his head, because Jones opened the game with six straight balls, walked the first two batters he faced and gave up three runs and four walks in four innings. The Padres lost, 3-2.

The San Diego Padres, who looked like a pennant contender for the final 4 months of the 1988 season, strengthened the resemblance Monday. They acquired slugger Jack Clark and pitcher Pat Clements from the New York Yankees for pitchers Lance McCullers and Jimmy Jones and outfielder Stan Jefferson.
