PLAYERS: Jake Long
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins left tackle Jake Long hasn’t looked the same over the past couple of years, but he believes he still has a lot left in the tank.  He was asked if he’s optimistic that he’ll re-sign with the Dolphins. “You’ve got to talk to my agent about that one,” Long told USA TODAY Sports. “That’s the business side. I just worry about the football. I know a great deal’s gonna get done one way or the other.” I can’t imagine the Dolphins re-signing Long at this point.  I don’t see them overpaying him after how much he’s declined over the past few years.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

Jake Long on return to Dolphins: “it’s essentially on them”

The clock is ticking on the Miami Dolphins relationship with their former #1 overall pick, Jake Long.  The Dolphins must decide before March 4th if they want to use their franchise tag on Long, resign him, or let him enter free agency on March 12th.  First, I don’t see anyway that the Dolphins use the franchise tag on Long, as it would pay him over $15 million in 2013.  So cross...
