Yesterday, we told you about Kendall Langford, a 3-4 defensive end. He's played the last four seasons for the Miami Dolphins and many thought that his market was weak enough that he could be a good bargain signing for the Green Bay Packers. Apparently, those who believed his market was weak enough for that (count me among this group) were misinformed. Kendall Langford just got paid.

This is, needless to say, too rich for Ted Thompson's blood for a player who did not record a single sack in 2011. The Rams are getting a quality player, no doubt, but that is a lot of money for a guy who is consistently solid, but unspectacular.
Between this signing, the signing of Scott Wells and the trade of the No. 2 overall pick, the St. Louis Rams are working on the title of 'Offseason Champions.' Rams fans can only hope that this goes better for them than it went for the Philadelphia Eagles last season, or for the Washington Redskins throughout the Daniel Snyder era.
