    I never saw anything in this article that is different from what we read yesterday.

    yet everyone reacts as if it is. too funny. how can anyone judge anything with any credibility when you dont even know what your reacting to?

    And besides, its not like Jake had a complete disaster of a year. He really just had a couple of bad games. He didnt live up to his own standards. So he had a new system he had to deal with with diff snap counts and plays, but its not like he was god awful at it.

    I hate the idea of Long leaving but also hate 10 mil a year. I'm hoping 8 mil with a 16 games played bonus involved. I really don't like Martin at LT. RT he struggled and needed help consistently. I'm hoping he has the biggest jump in play other than Tannehill. As someone else posted I do not want to be the Cards next year and Ryan getting hit every play. 47 hurries is a ton given up by Martin. I hope Jake realizes that 8 mil with bonuses is more than generous and our line doesn't need to be totally overhauled. I would aim for a 4 year deal with the last year being a team option.

    No one is going to pay him 8 mil a year to play RT and I highly doubt other teams haven't seen what we have seen. He's not worth more to anyone else but us. Also the teams with the most cap space are who? Us, Bucs-Have a LT, The Bills- have a LT but also have some big FAs to sign, Ravens-have their LT and some big guys to sign, Bengals and Browns have lots of space but have tackles. The biggest team that may come calling is the Bears. But are they really going to pay him over 8 mil?
    Let's go Miami!!!!

    Just so you realize, the team facility and jeff's office are co-located? why would it be so hard to believe that jeff and jake have had a couple conversations before some rehab about where they both stand? and you can be sure jeff has more than a passing curiosity about Jake's progress insofar as a possible contract goes.

    I understand not overpaying, obviously. He hasn't played at an elite level in 2+ years, and doesn't deserve to be paid as an elite LT because of that.

    But if I could get a good deal on him, then I might think about it.
    Again, if it's anything remotely unreasonable, then I'd say bye-bye and thanks for your service.
    The thing is even if he didn't want something in the 8-12 million range id say he played at a level worth only 3-4 million which is certainly not what he'll get in free agency. He was that bad. Good at run blocking but got beat by pass rushers of all shapes, sizes, and reputations.

    Forget just getting beat by speed rushers, there were many times he was bullied and pushed around. Jonathan Martin filled the void and there was no drop off and he's a rookie with room to grow. Meanwhile jake long has gotten progressively worse. Combine that fact with his injury problem and that makes him an incredibly unattractive option. Just my opinion and I hope he proves me wrong if we do bring him back, but signing him to a long term deal at any amount of money will kill my enthusiasm for the upcoming season.

    take it or leave it...i knew ireland had a soft spot for jake...3 of the last 4 years on ir...and i'm smelling a double digit per year offer coming...so much for all that cap space
    I agree with you there, Hoops. I like Long a lot, but you've got to factor in the injuries when it comes to giving out big money. At this point $8 million a year seems a little high, but for 2 years that could work out.

    Boy that's strange how he managed to have a year where he gave up .5 a sack, and less than 10 QB pressures. In an entire season. In a year where he faced the Colts, Texans, Jaguars... all of whom had speed pass rushers (guys who were known for getting to the QB incredibly fast) so maybe you're wrong. Shocking, considering your posting history...

    We could sign Brady Quinn as KC most likely won't, and move him in front of Tannehill on the depth chart.

    I would like to see him back max $10mil a year. They obviously think he can still play or they wouldn't talk to him. Either he's your starter or he's not. If he's not then you don't even bring him back for league minimum. Move on. Obviously they feel he'll be back to form and this is just negotiation game-manship.
