Former Miami Dolphins offensive tackle, and 2008 first overall draft pick, Jake Long has agreed to a new contract with the St. Louis Rams, according to a report from Pro Football Talk.

SI.com's Peter King and Albert Breer of NFL.com both confirmed the report. The Rams also confirmed the signing via Twitter after initial reports began trickling out.

It's a four-year, $34 million deal, according to PFT. With incentives, Long could make as much as $36 million over the life of the contract. $16 million of it is guaranteed, with $4 million more becoming guaranteed in 2014.

Long, 27, was one of the most coveted offensive linemen coming into the offseason. The Rams were able to woo him to St. Louis after a recent multi-day visit. Second-year Rams head coach Jeff Fisher's job in selling the organization's long-term vision was said to have convinced Long to leave Miami, according to Breer.

Long is easily the biggest signing for the Rams so far this offseason.
