Miami Dolphins left tackle Jake Long is rehabbing his torn left triceps and is getting ready to play football, but he isn't ready to answer questions about where he'll be playing football in 2013. The former No. 1 overall draft pick is prepared to enter free agency for the first time in his career, but wouldn't give any hints on if his future was with the Dolphins or another team.
"You've got to talk to my agent about that one," Long told USA TODAY Sports. "That's the business side. I just worry about the football. I know a great deal's gonna get done one way or the other."

Long tore his triceps 12 games into the 2012 season and was not named to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his five-year career. He finished the season on injured reserve and underwent surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews. Long has been rehabbing at the Athlete's Performance facility next to Andrews' office and said, "this is the best I've felt in a while. I'm excited for the upcoming years."
If those years will be in Miami or elsewhere remains to be seen. Long is seeking a contract upwards of $10 million per season.
