Top 10 Sticking Points in Jake Long Contract Negotiation
1. Long wants City of St. Louis to change landmark's name to the "Jake Long Arch."
2. Rams want long to wear #72 so that TekeRam can wear his (formerly Chris Long) jersey again.
3. Long (a Michigan alum) wants James Laurinaitis to denounce Ohio State.
4. NFL investigating whether Dolphins' offer of Miami Heat courtside playoff tickets violates salary cap.
5. Long insisting that Rams draft Kyle Long, have Kyle's jersey read "Long," Chris Long's jersey read "Longer," and his jersey read "Longest."
6. Jackie Long not thrilled with Rams' promise of her inclusion in Mississippi River Swimsuit Calendar (Dolphins' version is on South Beach).
7. Long wants red seats removed from Edward Jones Dome (remind him too much of Ohio State).
8. Long not sure if he wants to move to L.A. in a couple of years (kidding!)
9. Long waiting for assurance that Craig Dahl will not return.
10. Deal was reached two days ago - Long and Rams just enjoying watching fans squirm.
