The first overall pick in the 2008 draft hasn’t generated the kind of buzz that he would have preferred. But he has three interested teams, so far.
As multiple reports have indicated (and we’ve confirmed), Long will visit the Rams on Tuesday night.
Also interested are the Eagles and the Dolphins.
Miami would become Long’s fallback is he doesn’t get the deal he wants elsewhere. Before the legal non-tampering tampering period opened, we heard that Long was looking for $11 million per year.
At a certain level, it’ll make sense to stay in Miami. And that would be a major coup for the Dolphins.
If Long leaves South Florida, 2012 second-rounder Jonathan Martin will likely become the Dolphins’ new left tackle.
