If the lucrative contract Michigan tackle Jake Long signed on Tuesday wasn’t proof enough, the man himself disputed last week’s FoxSports.com report that claimed he didn’t want to play for the woeful Dolphins.
“Someone called me up and said they saw (the report),” Long told The Palm Beach Post this morning after a youth clinic in New York’s Central Park. “I don’t know how anybody got that because I never said that. I never had those feelings.
“I said from Day One that it would be an honor to play for the Dolphins and be a No. 1 pick. I don’t know who came up with that, but none of it was true.
Good to Hear, I knew the rumor was a lie. When he was asked at the Combine he said he would love to be a Miami Dolphin. That is why I never believed the rumor. Good to hear from The Giant.
