    Time to let Jake Wrong walk. If we can get some top wide receivers and a TE, than Tannehill won't have to run for his life all the time, and we can stick with Martin at LT, or draft a RT/LT replacement. Jake isn't worth $15 million a season.

    Here's what I do not understand. Myself, and a number of other posters here, watch the OL play, with everyone agreeing that Jake and Cog are not good fits to the ZBS. For me, if it's for $1.5M or $15M, I do not want to keep Jake and want to move on with this WCO. We have three athletic guys on the OL in Pouncey, Martin, and Jerry. Why not add at least a 4th, and spend the money on someone who fits and can make some plays?

    The Ravens are in the SB with McKinnie at LT, who no one wanted, protecting Flacco, who cannot run. How can we do worse?

    I get the gist of what you're saying but i dont think anyone has ever accused John Jerry of being athletic. He was drafted for Sparano's bulldozing rushing attack that never happened. Also, the Ravens do not use a WCO and Flacco in theory needs more time to allow his receivers to get down field. Correct me if i'm wrong but ZBS and WCO is quick reads, quick throws, linemen moving in sync, not necessarily over powering defenders..

    When he was drafted Long could have been a good fit. The funny thing is, on top of his being injured the last few years, he has been noticably out of shape as well. Dude had a six pack at 300 lbs coming out in the draft. On Hard Knocks you saw a noticably different Jake Long. I don't know if that has to do with the injury or just not caring or what, but it could definitely be a factor.

    Another example of awful writing/reporting. He mixes in opinions and facts and summarizes by saying these are the facts.

    Long isn't worth 11 million but we shouldn't let AS incite us to hate Long based on hearsay & opinions . Let's see what Long asks for.

    Well, the title is "Facts, opinions on Long's 'complicated' negotiation," so I'm not sure why that is surprising...

    Not typically an Armando fan, but can't say I disagree with anything he wrote.
