    Jake Long headed for STL?

    Friggin yahoo sports had indicated earlier that it was a done deal.

    Everyone wants to be first, to get the scoop. So interested with being the first that the "scoop" may or may not be a shovel full of manure. Either way; for a minute, they are getting attention. TMZ reporting at its finest.

    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]Maybe not now, but soon.

    Re: Jake Long headed for STL?

    NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reported on Total Access Wednesday that the Dolphins still haven't ruled out re-signing free agent Jake Long.

    Tweeted Long less than an hour ago, "Got the tour of STL today and was pleasantly surprised. Not selling our house in MIA though!" Reported Darlington, "I'm told that the Dolphins still do really like Long. They do still want him back." If the Rams were going to bowl Long over with a contract, we suspect it would have happened by now. Long's decision is clearly down to St. Louis and Miami.

    Re: Jake Long headed for STL?

    Jim Thomas, about two hours ago, tweeted the following: "At last check, both Jake Long and Louis Delmas still in town. In fact, not long ago indications were Long was still taking physical."

    Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said of Long: "About Jake Long's physical: It's not about whether he's "healthy." It's about whether #Rams trainers can work with him and manage."

    Jeff Darlington ‏of NFL Network followed up: "To follow up on @Rapsheet's sentiment, a Rams source also told me they were very aware of Jake Long's health history/issues going into this."

    Longest. Physical. Ever.

    Re: Jake Long headed for STL?

    What I'm about to say is not hyperbole or an attempt at comedy. I'm actually being totally sincere:

    I had my annual physical at the doctor's office today. Before I left work to go to the doctor's office, I heard a report that Jake Long's physical with the Rams had begun. I finished at the doc's office, went back to work, finished out the afternoon, went to church, and now have been home for some time..........and that poor guy is STILL getting looked over?!?! Good grief!

    Re: Jake Long headed for STL?

    Jake's wife about two hours ago on Twitter:

    In response to a question if he was still in the physical:

    "he'll do anything to prove to everyone he's 100% healthy & strong. Even an entire day of physicals"

    also...

    "
    Gotten so many texts and calls today from friends and family wanting to know what's up...so do I! #freeagency#isitoveryet ?"

    Assuming he is locked away still...

    Another follow-up from Rapoport: "Word from the longest physical in the history of physicals: If anything happens with Jake Long and #Rams… it'll be tomorrow #rest #longpuns"

    What does that mean?

    Also, I thought he tweeted several hours ago that he "got the tour" blah blah blah, speaking as if he were on his way back to Miami.

    That last quote was incorrect. That was his WIFE that tweets. Jake doesn't have twitter.

    Perhaps that he's at a point in his career where the goal is to manage his pain in order to play effectively rather than get to a point where he's 100% healthy.

    Maybe a subtle bump to the Miami Brass that they better top up their offer .. Plus do you think Jeff Ireland is still smarting from the Rams whisking away Fisher? Maybe a matching offer from the Dolphins is enough for Ireland to get 1 back.

    That's what I was scared of, and that makes me pretty nervous. If we do end up signing him, I hope it's not a 5-year deal.

    Re: Update: Rams giving Jake Long the world's longest physical

    I hate this. Started this morning with "Rams Agree To Terms With Jake Long", and now I've got, "Not selling our house in MIA though!". Ugh.............

    I'm officially worried this might not get done. Hope I'm wrong.
