Dolphins Begin Contract Negotiations with Michigan's Jake Long

Update: John Clayton of ESPN says Bill Parcells may take the best contract deal between Jake Long, Chris Long and Glenn Dorsey.

Hat tip to Eric in the diaries.

How serious is this?

The Miami Dolphins could soon be off the clock.

The Dolphins have formally begun contract negotiations with agent Tom Condon about the prospect of selecting former Michigan offensive tackle Jake Long as the first overall selection in this year's draft.

Condon, who also represents Boston College quarterback Matt Ryan, was in South Florida early this week to negotiate specifically on behalf of Long at the request of the team, The Miami Herald has learned.

The article goes on to say that the Dolphins are still interested in DE Chris Long but haven't spoken with his agent. This report just makes me believe even more that Jake Long will be gone before the Chiefs pick. I'm feel about 80% sure on this one but things can, and do, change.
