"We're still chatting," he said, affirming that the Rams feel as though they still have a shot at landing the four-time Pro Bowl left tackle.
Long, who turns 28 in May, spent three days in St. Louis before returning to Miami without a contract. The Dolphins remain in the mix to re-sign him.
Snead would not get into specifics regarding negotiations or concerns over Long's injury history. In general, though, he said injury concerns were not a factor from the Rams' standpoint.
"What I'll say is, health is not a problem," Snead said.
While his health may not be a problem per se his injury history surely is being taken into consideration or I think he would already be signed somewhere.
I agree AQNOR. If the Rams did truly feel that Jake health was not an issue, they would have offered a contract that Long would not have had to even think a second about signing.
Hopefully Long makes a decision one way or the other early next week so the Dolphins can move on. Sebastian Vollmer is a kid that I think can play the OLT position, and then you have Eric Winston, who can be bought in to play ORT and move Martin over if need be.
