St. Louis Rams reach a deal with Harvey Dahl

The St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms with free agent offensive guard Harvey Dahl. The news was just revealed by Bernie Miklasz on Twitter. Just today, talk started bubbling up that the St. Louis Rams wanted to sign Dahl; the only question was how much of a bidding war there would be. Whatever kind of bidding war there was, it remained behind the scenes and the Rams emerged this afternoon with a greatly solidified offensive line. 

The right guard spot proved to be trouble for the Rams last season. Adam Goldberg, a tackle by trade, filled in adequately, but it was never enough to give the Rams much push in the running game. It also led to additional pressure on Sam Bradford.

Dahl steps into a very expensive unit, featuring an interior trio made up entirely of top-of-their-class free agents signed since 2008. It's an investment, but there's $50 million guaranteed reasons to spend that kind of money in the pocket behind them. 

Here's how Matt Williamson of ESPN and Scouts, Inc. described Dahl to me on Twitter:

@TurfShowTimes Tough guy who can set the tone for an OL. Not overly athletic-better run blocker than in protection. Solid starting OG

No word yet on what kind of contract Dahl signed. This is great news for the Rams, the kind of addition that should really bolster an offense that has to score more points this season.
