SI's Peter King tells us today that Jake Long is the only player the Fins are negotiating with right now. But Bill Parcells has given Long a deadline to accept his offer, or they're moving on.
"Miami is negotiating with one player right now -- Michigan tackle Jake Long. There is a deadline, yes; I don't know what it is. But if Long doesn't agree to a deal -- think of something less than the six-year, $62-million deal ($31 million guaranteed) signed by JaMarcus Russell last year -- Parcells will move to his next guy. My educated guess -- which an NFL front-office acquaintance of Parcells seems sure of -- is that the next candidate will be Gholston, the Ohio State defensive end."
Bill Parcells is probably the one man with tits that I fear the most. Not because men with tits don't frighten me -- they do. But because Bill Parcells is a badass. He's like a cyborg with manboobs. If Bill Parcells was anymore of a badass, he'd be Mr. T. And who's a badder badass than Mr. T? He's half way there anyway, telling Jake Long that he ain't got no to time to waste with no jibba jabba and that he's got a deadline to sign that contract. Fool.
That's badass. But Bill Parcells needs to stop kissing people. Not so much because it makes him less of a badass but because it's creepy as hell.
