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.

It's a difference of philosophy. Some people want us to stay in our lanes and maximize value in the draft. Some of us want to reach for positions of need.

Sometimes, either one is appropriate. Right now, because we need to change over 2/3 of the roster, I'm in favor of maximizing value.
How is it that a Left Tackle is more valuable than a QB? How is this team getting more "draft value" (whatever the **** that means) by picking a Left Tackle over a potential franchise QB?

If you are going to turn over 2/3 of the roster, would it not be wise to start by getting the most important position and build around him, instead of building the body without the engine, then hoping the engine falls into your lap?
