Rams, Long Agree To Terms On Deal
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams and free agent offensive tackle Jake Long have agreed to terms on a deal.

Long, the first overall pick of the 2008 draft, spent a few days in St. Louis last week and passed a physical, but left without a deal. Kevin Demoff, the Rams' chief operating officer, confirmed the signing Sunday night.

Long is the Rams' second acquisition in free agency along with tight end Jake Cook, who got a five-year deal.

Long made the Pro Bowl each of his first four seasons. He finished last season on injured reserve with a left triceps injury and the Dolphins declined to give him a franchise tag and pay him $15.4 million next season.
