You already knew that defensive end Chris Long will be sticking around St. Louis through 2016, but now we have the terms of the new four-year extension. Long will earn $50 million over the course of the contract, with $27 million in the deal guaranteed. It's certainly a significant deal for the defensive end, who becomes the first Rams draft pick to earn a second contract since cornerback Ron Bartell, a second round pick in 2005.
Long, 27, was the second overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. He finished seventh in the NFL in sacks last season by tallying 13. Long totaled 8.5 sacks for the Rams in 2010. The 6-foot-3, 270 lbs. defensive end is the son of former Oakland Raiders standout Howie Long.
