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.
