NFL Free Agency Rumors: Jake Long Seeking $11 Million a Year


Miami Dolphins left tackle Jake Long is expected to hit the free agent market and he will be looking for a big pay day. There is a very slim chance that the Dolphins retain Long, so he will be looking for potential suitors once he becomes available.

According to reports, the Dolphins are only considering a deal that would give Long $6 to $7 million a year and the former No. 1 overall pick is seeking much more.

Long is reportedly looking for a deal worth $11 million a year.

There has been some speculation of where Long could land, but the one team that continues to surface in the rumors is the Chicago Bears.

    I would like to make 11 million also. Doesn’t mean I will get it. The Dolphins should let some other team overpay for an average LT.

    The Bears need a good left tackle and signing Jake Long, a Michigan boy, will be good for ticket sales. The Dolphins must make offers to one of the other top LT free agents at $11 MILLION. The Dolphins need to sign their veteran top draft picks or face taking a step backward on the rebuilding treadmill. I say you resign, Jake and Shaun Smith then franchise Starks. Give Mike Wallace the big bucks and sell a few tickets too!
