Yeah bringing back a deteriorating Jake Long who doesn't even fit well in Philbin's zone blocking for 10million+ is a great idea. Miami can find a replacement for Long, that whiffs at a fraction of what Jake long is asking for. Miami doesn't need a stellar or "elite" LT. Average will do. Miami needs weapons. Can't get weapons if Jake Long is clogging up the salary cap on IR.
There is actually a pretty staggering list of UFA to choose from to replace Long if we decide to do that.
Jake Long = Tony Bocelli ---- his body just isn't going to hold up. Jake is a broken shell of his former self, any team that signs him for 10mil a year will be cutting him in a year.
Sign him for 6 a year with some injury clause in his contract and put him at right tackle.
Born to fight. Trained to kill. Ready to die, but never will.
