    No way we are paying Long $10 million a season. Better look at who we want to replace him in the draft. There is s guy who plays for the Colorado Buffaloes (my alma mater) named David Bakhtiari, who probably is the best player and hardest worker they had on their team. He might be worth a look around the fourth round.
    1. OG: Zack Martin, Notre Dame
    2. ILB: Chris Borland, Wisconsin
    3. TE: C.J. Fiedorowicz, Iowa
    4. DT: Daniel McCullers, Tenn
    5. FS: Kenny Ladler, Vanderbilt
    6. QB: Connor Shaw, South Carolina
    7. RB: Isaiah Crowell, RB, Alabama State

    If this report is true, then I'm disappointed in Long. I understand that every player (and their agent) try to gte the most that they can. However, Long has to know that he was one of the highest paid players in the league his rookie yr. As good as he was, he was still overpaid due to the insane rookie salary scale and as a result, should be grateful to this organization. He also has to be realistic and understand that he hasn't played uo to his standards for 2 seasons in a row.
    Despite mediocre records the past 10yrs, this team hasn't had a whole lot of cap money until now. That indicates to me that they have been overpaying to keep some of our own FA's for years.
    I'm guessing his agent wants to test the market. I would be surprised if any well run team offers him anything near 10 million. Especialy coming off the torn triceps. The Phins need to hold their ground and offer him what they feel he is worth.
    Teams that overpay for FA's usually have it blow up in their faces. Mario Williams didn't elevate Buffalo to elite status. Neither did Joey Porter when he signed with the Phins. Dansby hasn't exactly made us SB contenders either.

    I have no doubt Long will get at least $10 million, it might not be from Miami but he will get it. Some Miami fans complain that Long isn't as good as he once was or that he's injury prone. However Long would be an upgrade for a lot of teams at he will get good offers.

    The Redskins would definitely give him 10-12 million just because of his "name". They are looking for ways to protect RGIII.

    Remember when guys like Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor restructured their deals, and took less money up front, so the team would have more money available to sign free agents? Guys like Long are all about themselves and getting paid right now.

    Good for him then. Can't blame a guy for getting as much money as he can. I just hope it isn't Miami that overpays like that.

    I would offer him an incentive based contract.....start at the price Miami is offering with incentives to get him where he wants to be. Then, if he returns to form and plays hard, he gets what he wants and Miami is ok paying for a top 2-3 LT. And if he doesn't return to form, they aren't overpaying for a guy on the downside of his career.

    The Miami herald is just speculating...here is my speculation..he will sign for between 7-8 million with playing time and incentive clauses to reach 10 million.
    IMHO...Smith is hot garbage, just a system (contain and tackle) CB. How many picks does he have in 4 seasons? no thanks Draft ...another player.
    Hartline is worth what he is asking, but the Fins will sign him for slightly less.

    Makes sense, $8 million isn't bad.

    It's funny you say Smith has 5 ints in 64 games started and think he needs to go yet Hartline has 2 tds in the past 42 games
    I say let them all walk and start fresh with the rebuild
