    I'm starting to get the feeling that the Rams are being used to drive up the Dolphins offer. Maybe, I'm just reading into this too much, but it seems to me that he would likely be signed by now if both parties wanted to make it happen.

    This has definitely crossed my mind but I hope I am wrong!

    @RapSheet: Sounds like #Rams & OT Jake Long are hammering out a deal. Could have a resolution soon, barring any snags. They are OK with him medically

    Hurrah for that tidbit. Now get the deal done, and he can formally matriculated into Professor Bou's OL classes of higher learning.

    Re: Long Cleared, In Contract talks with Rams

    Awesome.

    [textarea]According to Andrews, Long is in the best shape he has seen the player in years.

    "I just saw him [Wednesday] and he looked great," said Andrews, who did surgery to repair a ruptured left triceps injury that cost Long the final four games of the 2012 season. In addition, Long missed the final game of the 2011 season with a biceps injury and has had shoulder and knee surgery.

    Still, Andrews said he would have no qualms telling a team to sign Long and expect strong results.

    "I asked him about his knee and he said it's the best he has felt in years," Andrews said. "Like I said, this is the kind of kid you want. I'm not worried about him at all."

    Andrews said if the season were about to start, Long would be cleared to play, though he recommends the lineman take another month to let his triceps injury heal.

    This is starting to drive me up the wall. I just want to know one way or the other if he's going to be a Ram. I'm tired of checking the forums and hearing that they are "close" or "working in a deal".

    Well then let me put your mind at ease.

    There's a definitely possibility that Jake Long will at some point, in the near future, either sign with us or not.
    You're welcome.

    If it's gotten this far, he's signing. I'm sure it's just little details that gotta get worked out.

    You know I'm playin'. And I know it's maddening. Will he, won't he, will he, won't he....

    I'm pretty confident this one is all done. Just taking a little longer than usual is all.
