Jake Long wants “at least” $10 million per

Report: Jake Long wants “at least” $10 million annually

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.

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.

No, if you're going to be a moron at least get the facts straight while doing so.

I said IF Albert wants more money than he is worth and we can't sign him, then we shouldn't draft a LT but should look at Jake Long since he IS an upgrade IF he is healthy (which is a huge if). Jake Long has (until this year with all the injuries) consistently been thought of as a top 5 LT by pretty much everyone in football.

And I have never said Albert is MAYBE a top 15 LT, I said he is definitely top 15 but NOT top 8. He simply isn't. No amount of kool aid will change that fact. That isn;t to say that he couldn't be, as Milkman has stated, Albert still has some upside while a guy like Long has topped out. I think he's right on that.

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.

He was also overrated those years too. In one of them Peppers whipped his ass to a level rarely seen in the NFL. He had at least three sacks against him and multiple other pressures.

He was before he got hurt. Darn near, anyway.

Last two years he's been pretty average.

I'd have still said Thomas and (ugh) Clady were better than him; at least more versatile. Hell, Jason Peters would've been in that discussion as well; he was great when healthy.

I don't argue that he wasn't a very good tackle (he was). But the best? I can't see it.
