Buzz I am hearing among GMs is that Jake Long will end up back in Miami. Rams still in the hunt but this isn't wreaking of a bidding war— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 17, 2013
In addition to Jason LaCanfora, Sports Illustrated's Peter King tweets: Peter King @SI_PeterKing "RT @scottandsuzanne: When and where do you think jake long will sign ... Tonight or tmrw. Hear it's close. Guessing Miami over StL" The lack of a 3+ team bidding war means similar offers are available to Long from the Dolphins and Rams. Expect the tie to go in favor of the Dolphins, who would be rewarded for their patience by getting Long back on a team-favorable deal. The belief was that a deep free agency and draft class at OT would depress Long's value, and that appears to be true - for now.
