ST. LOUIS (AP) -Defensive end Chris Long has agreed to a long-term deal with the St. Louis Rams, leaving plenty of time for the second overall pick in the 2008 draft to report to training camp.
The Rams project Long will start at right end, beefing up an anemic pass rush. The team did not disclose the terms of the deal Sunday.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch had reported on its Web site Saturday night that the son of Hall of Famer Howie Long was expected to sign a deal that covers at least five years early this week.
The Rams report to training camp at Concordia University in Mequon, Wis., on Thursday.
St. Louis has signed half of its eight picks.
