Jake Long Doesn't Want to Play in Miami?

A rumor but still.

The word on the street is that Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long doesn't want to play for the Dolphins, who continue to negotiate with him as the first overall draft choice. There's a special honor in being the first pick so Long's agents continue to talk.

Of course, there is a deadline to these contract talks and then the Dolphins will move onto the next person on their board. Apparently, it isn't Virginia's Chris Long.

What is unusual about the top of the draft is that no team has declared to be after Boston College quarterback Matt Ryan.

If Jake Long doesn't go #1, I still don't see him falling to the Chiefs. I've got a sneaking suspicion the more I read about the Chiefs and Matt Ryan that KC may actually take the BC QB. Nothing more than a hunch, that may or may not be there even tomorrow.
