Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland adamantly disputed a recent newspaper suggestion that LT Jake Long's days in Miami are numbered.
The suggestion came via the consistently unreliable South Florida Sun-Sentinel, which is essentially the National Enquirer of newspapers from a football point of view. "I want to clear the air on an article," said Ireland. "I don't normally go overboard on media speculation but last night I saw an article about Jake Long. I have plans to keep Jake Long right here for a long time." Expect the Fins to approach Long about an extension before the season.
