9:21am: A Cowboys source says that there is no visit set up with Long, Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram tweets. That doesn’t mean that a visit won’t happen at some point, but there is nothing set up at this time.
Although he was cut by the Rams after another injury-plagued season, Long is said to be “100% healthy” and he says that he only wants to sign with a Super Bowl contender.
From 2010 to 2013 – his last four healthy seasons – Long totaled 41.5 sacks, an average of more than 10 per year. Considering he’ll turn 31 next month though, and is coming off two seasons during which he totaled just four sacks, his earning potential will likely be limited.
