Jake Long's dad spent 30 years working for General Motors, but the first thing Jake is going to buy with his new contract is a Ford truck. That's cold. With $30 million in the bank, he should at least buy a GMC and let it sit in the driveway. Just to appease the old man. When I suggested that to Jake last night, he said that he would think about it, but that in the meantime he's definitely buying an F-250. Why not an F-650? That's how the ballers roll, and the big boy from Lapeer, Michigan definitely strikes me as a baller.

One of the many possible scenarios for the Raiders' fourth overall selection in this weekends draft is officially off of the board. Jake Long, the Michigan offensive tackle, signed with the Dolphins today for a reported 5 year $57.75 million contract with $30 million guaranteed. That comes to one year less and $3.25 million less than last year's number one pick, JaMarcus...

We're not going to go Wilbon on you and talk about how the NFL Draft is the most overrated event in sports. (Actually, we really enjoy it.)But stop with the mock drafts already. You can't drop 8 versions on us and just keep flip-flopping Jake Long and Chris Long for the No. 1 pick. It's r...
Miami's top rookies have minor skirmish
"Frustrated after he was dominated by rookie tackle Jake Long on consecutive plays in a position drill, defensive end Phillip Merling sent a couple of right hooks into the chest of the Miami Dolphins' No. 1 pick."
Perry takes it in stride

What's up, Yardbarkers?
Just wanted to check in with the Yard on the night before the Draft. It's been a big week out here in the Big Apple, not just for me but also for Glenn Dorsey, Matt Ryan, Vernon Gholston, Chris Long and of course #1 pick Jake Long (congratulations, man). I've been loving New York and the whole Draft experience. I came out a couple days before...
With the first pick in the 2008 NFL Draft the Miami Dolphins selects Jake Long, offensive lineman out of the University of Michigan. Obviously the men upfront are important and they get left out of most conversations about the best players in NFL history.
So the idea here is to show the O-lineman some love. With out further adieu here is the list top to bottom in no particular...
The solid choice here is Jake Long, however I really think with the signing of Jacob Bell and a ton of bodies coming back from injuries the Rams may get aggressive and take Vernon Gholston. If Chris Long is still available this will be a very tough pick. The Rams need to help out their defense which ...

As the agent for Michigan tackle Jake Long continues to negotiate with the Miami Dolphins regarding the possibility of working out a contract before the time comes for the Dolphins to make their pick, there's a report that Jake isn't all that juiced about playing for the Fins.
John Czarnecki of FOXSports.com reports that "[t]he word on the street" is that Long...

The beer is on ice. The Raider fans are sharpening their spikes and getting the face paint ready. April's answer to the Super Bowl is two days away. Now all the eyes are on the teams with the worst records from the past season. The passions are high in the Raider Nation as the fans are arguing like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton over whether to pick Darren McFadden, Chris Long...
In March 2006, NFL Owners voted almost unanimously, 30-2, to accept the NFLPA's final proposal to extend its collective bargaining agreement (CBA). On May 20, 2008, NFL Owners unanimously voted to opt of that same agreement, meaning the current collective bargaining agreement will expire in 2011 instead of 2013. Now, many questions linger about the future of the league and what...
Yesterday the rush of adrenaline, the pressure of training camp, and the level of contact rolled to a head when Jake Long pancaked fellow rookie Phillip Merling. Merling, who just saw Long get the better of him a play or so earlier, took offense and came up swinging. Round 1 goes to Long.

I've gone on the record before in saying how much I hate fans being allowed to vote for any All Star game. 99% of the time they vote strictly on popularity and barely get anything right. For instance The Jets Blog put up the current Pro Bowl Voting Leaders in the AFC and highlighted what Jets are on the list. And of course the Fans got almost nothing right. ~Brett played great...
