Former Miami Dolphin signs four-year deal with St. Louis Rams.
St. Louis Rams have a taken a big step to improving their offensive line, as they signed former first overall draft pick Jake Long to a four-year contract.
The Rams are continuing to build a playoff hunting franchise right now, as they aim to help young Quarterback Sam Bradford in every way possible to reach the height of his huge potential.
Bradford has had an inconsistent start in the NFL, due in large part to a poor offensive line and the lack of receiving talent to throw too.
Head coach Jeff Fisher has realised this however, as he can start to focus on improving the offence now that he has a defence that can compete in a fast becoming tough NFC West division.
If Long can stay healthy, and regain his form as one of the top pass protectors in the league, then it will give Bradford a huge confidence boost, as he can stay in the pocket for longer, rather than having to keep scrambling, which tends to attract injury.
Having also acquired tight end Jared Cook, it seems that the off-season plan is to improve the offence to a higher level, and with two first round draft picks, they can certainly do that.
Selecting a play-maker such as Tavon Austin will give the Rams a legitimate number one wide receiver, and will open up the passing attack that has been stagnant in recent years.
Jeff Fisher is a very experienced coach, and the Rams seem to be in good hands for the future.
