In 2008, with the 1st overall pick, the Miami Dolphins selected Jake Long. Since then, Jake Long has made EVERY single pro bowl since he's been in the league and is considered one of the best LTs in the league. However, the injury bug has attacked him and it remains to be seen will he be able to stay healthy. I say resign him any way, and sign him to long term deal. Make sure he retires as a Miami Dolphin. The past two teams that won the super bowl, the Packers and the Giants. You know one of the things that's the same between them? They draft well! They not only draft well, but they KEEP their draft picks. Eli Manning. Justin Tuck. Most of their best and star players they drafted and signed to an extension when the rookie deal was up.The packers are the same. Greg Jennings, Aaron Rodgers. The Dolphins drafted Jake Long and he's played to the level of his contract. He's the best LT in the league! So pay him best LT in the league money! Heck, even injured he's probably better than most LTs in the league! Another reason to resign him is it sends a message to players in the league. IT lets them know if you come to Miami and you perform well, you get paid. Period. The last and most important reason to resign him is because if you resign him, your team is set with a all pro LT for the next 5-10 years. So Miami, please resign Jake Long and don't let him hit free agency!
