By Aaron Herman: As entertaining as the last few days have been, watching Richie Incognito trying to woo back Jake Long to the Miami Dolphins throughout the twitterverse, the decision is in, and Long is off to St. Louis.
Whether it was the money or the change of scenery he was looking for, the fact of the matter is that the decision has been made, and the Dolphins need to go to plan B.
Many fans may be disappointed with what happened, with Richie included, but this may be something that can help the Dolphins in the long run.
While they still have a gaping hole at offensive tackle, they also have a stash of cash that is now free to be used somewhere else.
The first step needs to be addressing the tackle position, and I believe that Eric Winston is on speed dial in Jeff Ireland’s phone, waiting for this very moment.
