    Report: Rams, Bears most interested in LT Long

    According to USA Today, the Rams and Bears are "believed to be among the most interested" in free agent LT Jake Long.

    It's hardly a surprise, as both teams had sinkholes for left tackles last season. There should be a nice market for Long's services, but a lot is going to depend on what turns up in his physicals. Injury has become a very serious concern for a player who was once one of the top 1-2 tackles in the league. It wouldn't be surprising if Long doesn't find what he's looking for on the open market and ends up back in Miami on a team-friendly deal.

    The actual tweet:

    It's been relatively quiet on the Long front. Bears and Rams believed to be among the most interested. We'll see.

    I'd pay him good RT money, but I wouldn't be bringing him in as a LT. Too many struggles against speed guys.
    I believe!

    When he came out as a draft prospect, there were quite a few who believed Long would make for a better right tackle than a left. At the right price and if his health checks out, he could be an intriguing signing.

    Isn't a big reason he is out of Miami that he wanted huge money? Makes me think he won't be joining us.

    I'd be psyched.

    I will note, however, that the Rotoworld commentary is laughable: "It's hardly a surprise, as both teams had sinkholes for left tackles last season."

    Rodger Saffold was hardly a "sinkhole." In fact, once he got healthy, he had a pretty solid year.

    NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah "keeps hearing" the Rams and Bears are free agent LT Jake Long's most likely suitors.

    But that is the overall perception of our O-line, even amongst clanrammers. Though I disagree.
