The Rams got themselves a new defensive tackle on Saturday, but it wasn’t the player most expected. The team reached an agreement with former Dolphin Kendall Langford to a four-year, $24 million deal that reportedly includes $12 million guaranteed. DT Jason Jones, the player most thought would be headed to St. Louis, instead signed a one-year deal with Seattle.
Langford looks like an excellent fit for this team. He’s a big boy at 6-foot-6 and 296 pounds, and he’s only 26 years old despite being a four-year starter for Miami. He has good size and strength, and he should do a nice job against the run.
I might start sounding like a broken record, but I think this is another very good signing. Langford is a proven player at this level, and he is in his prime at 26 years old. The team is going to need to add at least one more DT and probably more than one, but this is a very good start.
