    I was actually writing something very similar to that in another forum. I really believe that if he leaves without a contract, then he's signing somewhere else.

    Then apparently his wife tweeted something like she liked her tour of St. Louis, but their not selling their home in Miami...whatever that means.

    Probably means at $10M per year, they can afford 2 houses.

    Apparently, Jake is getting a full battery of physical tests to assert his playing readiness before the big bucks.

    I wonder if they are making Delmas wait on all this.

    I'm not surprised. Injuries are involved. So Fisher will take his time, like he does everything else.

    They are probably just doing the contracts now. If they weren't going to sign, we'd know about it.

    Good point, jap.

    I think they like Delmas.

    I think they like Long.

    I think they are leveraging all of the "information" which includes the injury history.

    Kirwan and Ryan (Sirius Satellite radio) are saying the deal with Long is done. Kirwan got a note from someone he trusts and he says its a done deal.

    They also say there is no truth to Saffold making noise when Long is signed and he will slide right over and play RT.

    Nice to hear! I also thought it sounded strange to hear that quiet Rodger was upset. He can't be stupid enough not to realize that the more versatility he shows, the higher his FA financial ceiling is---even to the Rams.

    I think for all intents and purposes, this deal is probably done.
