Shocking stat on Rams' Long

By Mike Sando

Rams defensive end Chris Long had more sacks this season -- 5.0 -- than Terrell Suggs, Julian Peterson, Shawne Merriman, Albert Haynesworth, Richard Seymour or Aaron Kampman.

That is something I wouldn't have expected to happen.

Long did show improvement. Getting 5.0 sacks doesn't make him a dynamic pass-rusher, but the figure puts him in decent company.
