If we could get him for that I would be ecstatic. He has an awful lot of leverage. His agent was smart and did what a lot of agents are doing now...backloaded his contract so that all his bonuses hit the cap in his last year. His franchise number next year would be close to $16 million. His 5 year tag number would be over $110 million.
It's the same tactic that got Mario Williams $100 mil and Calvin Johnson $130 mil. A lot depends, of course, on how well Long does this season. But if he stays healthy and continues to get better, 12-15 sacks isn't out of the question.
