    He can take his time. Not worth a bidding war.

    Sign Winston,and be done with him already.Dont play games with him.If its that close with Rams,and he can't make up his mind...then he doesn't want to be here.I don't want any player wearing our colors,if he's not on board with what's taking shape.It's time to move on(a lonnnnng time ago).

    As far as Winston goes does anyone wonder why he was released two years in row by two different teams?

    Long, vollmer, winston...it really doesn't matter. We already addressed the far more important concerns. Give one of them a reasonable contract and start focusing on the other more important needs.

    Heh, hope someone is tellng Mrs Long while she's sitting outside drinking a pina colada listening to a house reggae band in balmy mid070s weather that they're predicting more snow in the midwest and today it was in the 40s, going down to freezing tonight and early tomorrow.. (happy wife = happy life).

    We shouldve moved on already. Spend the big bucks on players who make plays, not over-rated average LT who have been grossly over-paid their entire NFL career. Long was making about twice as much as his play warranted the last 3 years and since he luckily for him came in before the rookie cap he made more money than he ever should've made. If he wants to be here, he'll sign a fair contract. Not like the guy needs all he can get. He already has more money than he'll ever spend. The guy should play for the vet minimum after robbing the Dolphins the last 3 years.

    really? thats like deciding between the Bahamas or Nebraska for a vacation. St. Louis may pay a little more, but in Florida he wont owe state tax. If he cant decide between an up and coming team like Miami (and an area like Miami), and a team like the Rams (and an area like St. Louis)....hes got issues.

    If I was Jake, I would take a one year contract for cheap to prove myself. If I prove myself to be elite, then I'll get all sorts of long term big money contracts the next year.

    Jake I hear Busch Stadium is a great place to take in a ball game during the offseason. Beats the hell out of going to Marlins games.

    Also, the midwest has some OUTSTANDING BBQ. Crime in the St. Louis burbs is almost non existant. I know you and the Mrs. are thinking of having children. Missouri has some outstanding schools in the right places.

    Can we start a "Leave home Long" campaign on twitter? I dont have a twitter account but if I did, I'd be all for pulling the troops together to get Jake to St. Louis.

    A team like the Rams? You mean an up and coming team with the youngest roster, who has 4 #1 picks these next 2 years, a stud QB, and also dominated the Fins for 4 quarters in Miami this year, and also had a better record? That team?

    If the rumored 5 year 50 million dollar deal from the rams is true then the only thing we got going for us is this is jakes home. I bet we are not gonna give 10mill a year to jake. If he stays its gotta be for 7-8 mill a year max right?

    Dominated Miami? Is crack free? Domination normally doesn't end in a butt hurt loss. By the way, New England, with the best player on the planet and 52,000 draft picks recently won as many superbowls as the Rams. None. Tard.

    I can understand not wanting to overpay for Jake, but I don't know where all this hate is coming from.

    Yes his play has declined over the past two years. It's only because he plays hurt instead of taking time off. It doesn't make sense to rag on that type of player.

    And yes he wants more money than the Dolphins think he's worth. How can you fault him for that? I feel that way about the company I work for. Cannot imagine that you think you're overpaid in your job.

    If he goes, he goes and we should thank him for playing his heart out while he was here. For me, I hope he stays.

    Wait, where's this from? Just two hours ago everyone was saying Miami had momentum to resign him.

    If the Rams offered 50 millions for 5 years, say good by to Long, he is not worth that kind of money

    $8M sounds like a fair price. It's a little overpaid but less than the best offer. Slight hometown discount if he is serious about the fins.

    17-14. Your dictionary is broken if that's "dominated." Domination is Tannehill coming out, hitting 72% without even trying, tossing two touchdowns, dropping his mic, and sending the rams packing back to Anaheim or whatever.

    Best bet if Long goes to the rams? Who hits IR first, he or Glassford?

    That's only because we hadn't seen a good QB in over 10 years until Tannehill.
