Recently released defensive lineman Chris Long thanked Rams fans in an emotional Instagram post on Friday.
The Rams released Long, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2008 draft, in a cost-cutting move Friday. The defensive end played 114 games for the franchise, recording 54.5 sacks.
In his Instagram post, Long thanked the city of St. Louis and also gave a shout out to Los Angeles, even though he won’t suit up for the Rams in their new city.
