Rams Restructure DE Chris Long's Contract
The St. Louis Rams had money problem, sort of. With the 2013 NFL Draft less than a week away, the Rams had about a quarter of a million in cap space. They took care of that by restructuring defensive end Chris Long's contract, according to Jim Thomas of the Post-Dispatch.
Long had a base salary of $13.25 million this year under the terms of the contract extension he signed last summer. The Rams and Long agreed to convert $6 million of that to a roster bonus that gets pro-rated, creating $4.5 million in cap space this year.
