I think Kiffin is right about Chris Long. Legacy has nothing to do with why Kiffin wants him either.

an interesting possibilty is if dorsey falls to us is to trade 1st round picks with the bengals for their 1st and 2nd round picks. then in the 9th position picking sedrick ellis who is a very good run stopper, and in the second round hoping someone like desean jackson from Cal falls to us. he would fill the hole that carr left as a punt/kick returner and give us another decent receiver. the bengals and saints are both willing to pay a high price for dorsey and its something that would definately help us. obviously this all depends on if glenn dorsey falls to us.
