Three-Time Champ at Alabama Stuck on Third String

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Barrett Jones played a major role on three national championship teams at Alabama, and has the trophy hardware to prove it.

He insists it's been no adjustment going from highly-decorated college offensive lineman to semi-anonymous fourth-round draft pick with the St. Louis Rams.

Jones is getting most of his work with the third team, partly because of missing the first week of training camp rehabbing from a foot injury, but mostly because he's a rookie. That will likely be the case again when the Rams play the Green Bay Packers in their second preseason game on Saturday night.

So much for the winner of the 2011 Outland Trophy as the nation's best interior lineman when he was left tackle and 2012 Rimington Award as the nation's best center, four Academic All-American nods for his 4.0 GPA and the 2012 William V. Campbell Trophy for off the field work.
