NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Long has indicated he's looking for $11 million per season in his next contract, according to a team informed of the player's thoughts on the price.
Unofficial list of free agents
Long, the first overall pick in the 2008 draft, has struggled with injuries and consistency over the past two seasons, and he's currently recovering from triceps surgery. He averaged more than $11 million per season during the balance of his five-year rookie contract with the Dolphins.
Long told NFL Network last month that his body has never felt better, and he fully expects several productive seasons ahead.
At 27, that's certainly possible. But it will be interesting to see if anyone is willing to play ball at his price. We doubt it will be the Dolphins.
