I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
Why are people mad that Long wants more money? I'm stunned that a standard negotiating tactic riles up so many Dolphins fans. If there's someone willing to pay him the money he desires, that's how the NFL works. When Dansby, fans weren't mad at him because he refused to take less money to stay with the Cardinals. This is how the NFL works, if a team and a player can't meet on a perceived value, the player leaves. It doesn't make them selfish, it doesn't make them a bad person, it doesn't make them any less of a player - if you can get more money for your services, you should.
Long doesn't owe you anything and the Dolphins don't owe Long anything. Any one who thinks that would be a terrible GM or agent. Get off your high horse and move onto another topic, rather than bashing an otherwise fine human being. I'm astounded at the amount of people who will turn on a player, coach or exec in a minute without so much as a sliver of knowledge of the situation. I'm all for talking about anything Dolphins related, but surely there's something better to talk about.
Thumper is probably right with 7 mil though.
Round 1: DeVante Parker (WR):
Speed, size/height, and efficient WR.
Round 2: Denzel Perryman (I-LB):
Behind Suh, quality I-LB.
Round 4: Ali Marpet (Guard)
Quality late round starting Guard, very smart, and tough.
Round 5: Jalen Collins (CB)
Possible quality CB w/ work.
Round 5: Jamil Douglas (Guard/Center/Tackle)
Guard, can also play center and tackle.
Round 6: Malcolm Brown (RB)
Consistent short yardage powerback.
IMO, the thing you need to ask is, "Can we get someone better?"
let smith walk because he can't tackle, and gets beat too much, he's a 3rd tier CB at least
that's right in line with what i was thinking...it's too much...let jake walk...
