Terms of the deal were not disclosed at this time.
Long was entering the final year of his six-year, $56.5 million rookie contract. The sixth year of the deal was voided after Long met certain incentives. Although the Rams have plenty of salary-cap space, Long’s cap number for 2012 was $18.3 million.
It’s a good deal for the Rams and Long as he seems to finally hitting his stride after accounting for 13 sacks and 37 tackles.
He had a bit of a slow start to his career in his first 2 season amassing only 9 sacks in his first 2 season.
He came on after switching to left defensive end and recorded 8 sacks.
