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

    Of course Long has contacted Miami (and potentially other teams as well) to see if someone else will give him a better offer than the Rams. Why wouldnt he? The reason he wouldnt would be if the Rams gave him an exploding offer (ie one with a specific time deadline) and i doubt that is the case at this point, although it could come to that soon. Long will be saying to the Rams "I need time to think about it," and its hard for the Rams to tell him that he needs to make a decision immediately. Of course, an ultimatum gets easier for the Rams as time clicks away, but I share the concern of others that the Fins may swoop in here and outbid us. I am less concerned about other teams because i think that no one is going to pay him the kind of money being discussed without a thorough physical, but Miami presumably already knows his physical condition.

    Let's hope it gets done today, like everyone else, i am on edge, unable to sleep and checking this site every two minutes or so.

    When I woke up this morning, "I've got you babe" was playing on the clock radio, and Jake Long had still not signed with the Rams.

    I heard if Long casts a shadow when he emerges from the edward jones dome winter will last another 6 weeks.

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

    According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Dolphins are making a "strong push" to re-sign free agent LT Jake Long.
    Long took an extended visit with the Rams this week. He met with the coaches, had a dinner, stayed the night and even passed a physical. But there's no deal yet, which suggests the two sides have been unable to come to terms on a contract. We now appear to be in a "bidding war" situation, something the Dolphins haven't been scared of this week.

    No miami team seems scared of a bidding war. They prefer to grossly overpay for names and hope it all works out later. Usually doesn't, except for the Heat.

    "After spending parts of 3 days in St. Louis league sources say Jake Long scheduled to leave town his afternoon. At this point still no deal."

    It looks like its today or never. If he leaves town after THREE days without a deal..it's not happening.

    Per JT:

    After spending parts of 3 days in St. Louis league sources say Jake Long scheduled to leave town his afternoon. At this point still no deal.
    According to sources, "multiple teams" showing interest in Long.

    Greg get out of Minnesota. Les may be callin' soon.

    At some point, the Rams have to say "that's our final offer, Jake, and we need to know by ______ what your answer is." Otherwise, the Rams are in a state of limbo with respect to pursuing other options (such as Sebastian Volmer and Eric Winston).

    According to Yahoo Sports, Dolphins sign Dustin Keller to one year contract. How does that affect the Phins ability to re-sign Jake Long? How much cap room does Miami have?

    I was thinking the same thing. They have to run out of cap room eventually, right?

    It depends on how much it cost them to sign Keller. Before signing him, they still had about 16 million..

    Miami reporting that Long has left St Louis without a contract...

    Miami Herald just reported that Long left St Louis without an offer and is mulling the situation over.
