    Looks like the Jake Long era in Miami is about to end. Unfortunate, but we'll move on.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    Who on this board would take say $20 mill knowing they will only live to be say....65?

    Correction average NFL player life expectancy is 55 years.

    Average male life expectacy in the United States today is 75 years.

    Who here would take $20 million dollars to lose 20 years of life.
    EXACTLY! I've said this many many times before, I will never hate on a guy for trying to maximize his salary, especially in a profession where you have such a small window to earn, and the fact that it damages you for the rest of your life whether its concusssions, knee problems, back, neck, etc etc etc.

    That said, Jake just doesn't fit here anymore for the type of money somebody will end up paying him. Its just business, not sure why fans take these things so personally its kinda silly.

    He needs to realize just how bad of a LT he really is and should accept a salary as such. Although TBH I do not want him back at any salary. Whats the difference if we pay him 10M or 5M, he still is not good and is injury prone. Im all for letting him walk.
    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

    Exactly! Because when you're young, 25 or 30 years seems like many lifetimes. It's precisely the reason why many NFL players don't give a damn. But they give a damn when they start getting older, trust me. By then, however, it's too late.
    Why so gloomy?
