NFL Players who need a change of scenery: For Rams–Chris Long –ESPN

From ESPN

Mario Williams done in Buffalo? The Giants moving on from Jason Pierre-Paul? DeMarco Murray leaving Philadelphia after one disastrous season? NFL Nation reporters pick a player who needs a change of scenery for all 32 NFL teams.

That means keeping him would almost certainly have to come after a pay cut, something Long has said he’d be open to.
