If the Dolphins keep throwing cheap offers out there, then Long is likely gone. That said, I agree with the Phins for not throwing big money at the guy. He's just too much of a risk at this point in his career. There are just too many questions about his durability right now to pay him big money.
I agree. While the last 2 years of injuries and drop in play has dropped Long out of the elite catagory, I still consider him to be solid. Make him a solid offer that he and the team can live with. If he turns it down, then he is looking for the dollars.
And no, I am not one of those that begrudge the guys the money they get, but Jake has been the highest paid OL in the league for a good bit of time until Joe Thomas got his new contract a few years ago.
