Needing help on the defensive line, the Rams on Saturday reached a deal with DE Kendall Langford. The deal is for four years and $24 million, with $12 million guaranteed, according to reports.  

Langford, a physical run stuffer who ranked No. 43 on PFW's list of the top 100 free agents, played the first four years of his career with the Dolphins. During that time, he started 54 games and registered 141 tackles. 

The way we see it

Considered a great fit for the 3-4, Langford can play either end or tackle. In light of the fact that the Rams have two former first-round picks — Chris Long and Robert Quinn — set to see major playing time at end and that they previously released Fred Robbins, who started 15 games at tackle for them last season, Langford may be slated for a big role at tackle in St. Louis.
