Just finished interviewing Chris Long on my 103.3 and he makes a strong first impression. Less than 45 seconds into the interview he says, "I can't wait to get to St. Louis and get to work." It's that work ethic coupled with his ability that made Long so attractived to Scott Linehan. But, Long says he doesn't really care for the label "high motor guy." He thinks it overlooks a player's athletic abilities.

He says he wants to play every down as Linehan indicated he would but Long says he needs to come in and earn the players' and coaches' respect before anything else. He tells me he knows very little about St. Louis but he'll be googling tonight to get up to speed. Maybe we'll quiz him tomorrow.
