I just read about it on turfshowtimes.com. He just says we could be active early in FA going after a WR or OT. But he specifies Jake Long. Could be nothing, but maybe there's something to it. Where there's smoke there's fire.

I think he'll stay with the phins but id love to bring him in, overrated or not I still think he is a very good LT.

lol...........Dolphins need to hit the cap floor. They will give him probably anything he wants when push comes to shove. He won't be a Ram, no way.

I don't see where we have the cap room. And I highly doubt Long stays with the Phins, he doesn't fit their new system.

He'l go to Cleveland ,with all the cash they have and move to RT and he and Thomas will set their offense for the next 10 years. They will draft a QB , sit Weeden as the #2 or trade him.

Not to mention he has regressed the last few years. Long is going to want Elite LT money, but he isnt an Elite LT, he is Pretty good at this point, not even very good.

Not to mention we dont have anywhere close to the Cap space to sign a Big LT this year, maybe not even a Upper Tier WR.



People dont realize this, because King is much more subdued in his actions and predictions, instead of out in your face like The ESPN guys. But he throws a ton of this stuff out there that is very vague and the ones that do hit, he pimps them up and just pretends the misses dont happen. Thats why you get lines like "King likely wouldn't put something like that on record without having some kind of info to actually back it up" because he has done a great job as a self promoter, and he does have much better sorcues than any of us. But sources around this time are as useful as a Turn on the wall.

I really can't see Long coming here. Franchise caliber LT in FA command big money and as others have pointed out the Rams simply don't have that kind of cap space.

Not to mention as St Lunatic pointed out he is not the same guy who was drafted number one overall in the same draft as Chris Long.

I think he'd make a great RT..sure he's regressed a bit as a LT, but I always felt RT was his more natural position anyways. And I do believe that him and the Dolphins will be parting ways. That being said, I don't see the Rams making a big push for him, nor do I want to see us give him big time LT money

You have brought this up a couple times now, why do you think Les Snead's wife's twitter fowling has anything to do with what the Rams are actually doing?

a couple of times? what?

why is no de, cb or qb on her list?
only positions the rams need.
she tweeted a couple of months ago that she was with les watching alabama vs. auburn, cause he was scouting.
