After several days on a free agent visit with the St. Louis Rams, LT Jake Long has reportedly returned to South Florida to spend some time with the team that drafted him first overall in 2008. Jason LaCanfora of CBS broke the news on Twitter early Saturday evening:
Jake Long and his wife have spent time in the Dolphins facility since returning home from St. Louis, I’m told, including today.

The 27-year old Long came to the Dolphins from the University of Michigan and made the Pro Bowl in each of his first four seasons in the NFL. Long battled injuries in 2012 but still appeared in 12 of 16 games.
