The St. Louis Rams set their sights on signing James Laurinaitis to a contract extension after they got a deal done with Chris Long.

Mission accomplished.

The Rams announced this afternoon that the linebacker Laurinaitis has signed a five-year contract extension that will keep him with the club through 2017, ensuring a core member of the defense will be in place for the new coaching staff led by Jeff Fisher.

Long’s contract extension will keep him in place through 2016, so a couple key pieces are in place for the organization. No details yet on the value of Laurinaitis’ contract.
