Tackle Jake Long is headed to St. Louis. The Rams and Long agreed to terms on a four-year deal, with a base value of $34 million, Pro Football Talk reported early Monday morning. With incentives, the deal can reach $36 million. $16 million is fully guaranteed, with another $4 million that will become fully guaranteed in 2014, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT. Per Dan Hanzus of NFL.com: ' Two club sources told Breer that coach Jeff Fisher's pitch on the direction of the Rams franchise was instrumental in landing Long. According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Long turned down a higher offer from a team other than the Miami Dolphins to join the Rams. The news was somewhat surprising given reports this weekend that Long and the Dolphins were heading toward a deal that would keep Long with the team that selected him first overall in the 2008 NFL Draft. Long joins tight end Jared Cook as the second player in the past week to choose the Rams over the Dolphins. ' "It was a tough decision," Long told the Post-Dispatch. "I came in for a visit and coach Fisher and Kevin Demoff and Les Snead were amazing. I just fell in love with their vision and the entire organization. And all the great things they had to say about Mr. (Stan) Kroenke and the way they go about football." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
