Two sources tell Yahoo San Diego State TE Gavin Escobar is a "top draft target" of the Dolphins.
A towering 6-foot-6, 254 pounds, Escobar has drawn loose comparisons to Rob Gronkowski and Tony Gonzalez, but ran an underwhelming 4.84 40-yard dash at the Combine. He caught 122 passes in three years in the Mountain West. Whether it's Escobar or someone else, the Dolphins figure to draft another tight end after whiffing badly on Michael Egnew last year.

Hartline makes more money than Boldin, d Jackson, Fitzgerald, roddy white. Number 3 WR getting paid more then. Number 1. What is Ireland doing
Chiefs didn't use tag on WR Dwayne Bowe because they didn't have to. Chiefs and Bowe have reached agreement on a five-year deal.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 4, 2013
Jake Long's FA market doesn't sound so hot
According to Profootballtalk.com, there is "little or no chatter in league circles" about any team making a major push for free agent LT Jake Long.
"Some" NFL teams reportedly believe Long needs to play right tackle instead of left, which would severely diminish his market value. Long is also coming off back-to-back disappointing seasons. Our gut feeling all along has been that Long will wind up re-signing with the Dolphins on a deal worth significantly less than he's seeking. His current asking price is a laughable $11 million a year.
