Jake Long was once considered in many circles to be the best left tackle in football. His stock has fallen off dramatically due to myriad injuries and declining performance, and he’s slated to hit a deep free-agent market for offensive tackles this March.

Long’s monetary expectations remain high. Citing people who have spoken to the Dolphins’ front office, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports Long is believed to be seeking “at least $10 million a year” and the Fins are “pessimistic” about their chances of retaining him.

Jackson adds that Long “scoffed” at the Dolphins’ in-season extension offer.

Long turns 28 in May and there are indications his body is breaking down, so we can’t fault him for pursuing every last dollar on his first ever opportunity to test free agency. With the way things have gone for him recently, this could conceivably be Long’s final substantial pay day the NFL.

He’s just probably not going to get it from the Dolphins.

In what circle was Jake Long ever considered the best left tackle in football?

SNR 01-27-2013 02:51 PM

Think he'd play guard for us?

Mr. Flopnuts 01-27-2013 02:53 PM

I wonder what he's going to do for work that will pay him that.

Yeah, bad timing for Jake that Scooter is out of the league.

Sign him, move Albert to guard. Draft Joeckel at 1 and put him at RT to start... we will dominate!

I don't think many of us Michigan homers thought he should've gone first. Or that he was ever the best.

Joe Thomas was a much better prospect.

I'd gladly give him $10M per year just to never hear "Luke Joeckel" ever again.

He was the first team AP all pro in 2010 and second team all pro by the AP in 09.

the argument was actually him saying not only was Jake Long significantly better than Brandon Albert, but we should give up a draft pick for him (3rd, 4th, 5th) and pay him whatever money he wants. And then claimed that Albert was maybe a top 15 LT at best.
