Rams First-Round Pick, 2nd Overall Chris Long Agrees to Deal

Chris and father Howie Long

2nd overall pick in April’s draft Chris Long said from day one that he wanted to have a deal done to be able to report to Rams training camp on time. It appears he is true to his word. The St.Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that on Saturday Long and the Rams agreed to a deal that will get him in on time and will pay him well over the five years of the deal.

The terms of the deal were not known according to the Dispatch, but word is Long’s agreement is likely similar to those signed by Jake Long, the number one pick and No. 3 pick Matt Ryan. Jake Long received a five-year, $57.75 million deal from the Miami Dolphins, while Ryan signed a six-year, $72 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons.

Long will be with the Rams when they report to Concordia University in Mequon, Wis., on Thursday the 25th for their first practice of the summer.
