Everyone on here wants to bash long for not playing very well and want to let him walk but can we afford to have martin as Ryan's blindside blocker? Its a given that Long is gonna get a big contract where ever he goes, but just how big. I live in ohio and dont see many of the games, but judging by the consensus around here,you guys want to let jake walk because martin did a serviceable job this season including his time at LT. Well here is an interesting stat that tells otherwise. I under stand a lot of the reason people dont want to resign long is because of the contract or decline of play this season but he is still one of the top LTs in the game and if we can get him for anything around 10 mill a year, you have to keep him
Dolphins OT Jonathan Martin's 47 quarterback hurries were the most among offensive tackles in 2012.
After moving to left tackle in early December, Martin allowed 17 hurries in just under five games. Jake Long had allowed 10 hurries in just over 11 games. With Long seemingly determined to land a market-setting deal, the Dolphins could have major pass protection issues in 2013.
