The latest member of Joe Maddon's spring guests was former NFL star Ed "Too Tall" Jones, who was on the field during batting practice talking with several members of the Rays, here with senior advisor Don Zimmer and Maddon. Rays team president Matt Silverman, who grew up a Cowboys fan in Dallas, also got a big kick out of meeting Jones, who was listed at 6-foot-9, 271 pounds.

Bucs coach Raheem Morris was also on the field pre-game here in Tampa, and said of Jones, who played 15 years all for the Cowboys, and recently turned 60: "He could play right end for me right now.''
