    Him coming back means that his pipe dream of getting 11 mil per year failed badly and that the Rams are not throwing money at him to go there. IMO if he is coming back then just do the damn deal and get it over with or go to the Rams.

    Martin did show some improvement the last 4 games. I was one of the ones before the season saying Martin shouldn't see the field the first year, and might NEVER see the field. I think he played better than I thought he would. I think Martin will be an average LT by 2014, below average this year. But I don't see Long being any better. Long's best days are behind him and I seriously doubt he will ever see another 16 games as a starter. I love Long's leadership, but I have no confidence that he will ever be the player on the field that we are paying for. I personally don't want him back unless it is for pennies on the dollars. Six Million per year is the most I want to pay and only the first year guaranteed.

    Anyway - continuity doesn't really mean much if you don't have talent, just saying.
    Nope, grew up in Arizona.

    Signing Long= sub-par play for 12 games, then IR. it's time to find a cheaper and more durable replacement that fits the scheme. Sign Winston to a 2yr deal for half of Longs 10 million per year asking price, then draft an athletic Tackle this year to groom for the future.

    Please remember that Long played with an injured back and tricep the season before.He was still nursing those injuries.When Long is completely healthy he is an absolute beast.UNBEATABLE.

    Wait, Long was injured? When was this? Had to be a very rare occurrence, because I just cannot seem to remember it ever happening. And he has always been beatable, particularly by speed rushers.

    No matter what any fan may think, it's pretty obvious to anyone without a hatred agenda that an O-line with a healthy Jake Long is a better O-line. Speed rusher is Jake's Kryptonite, and even that rarely happens when he is healthy, but after showing significant loss of games two years in a row because of injuries, he is not worth what he is looking for, Miami needs to make him a reasonable offer, give him a deadline, if he refuses, Miami needs to go another direction.

    Its hard to block with only one arm. Dont base his capability when blocking with one arm this year.
