Vikings LT Jake Long is done for the season with an Achilles' injury.
Long had to be carted off after going down late in the fourth quarter. He wasn't playing well this season, but his loss is a blow to an already injured offensive line. RT T.J. Clemmings and LG Alex Boone are Minnesota's top candidates to replace Long. Sun, Nov 13, 2016 06:22:00 PM

Vikings signed OT Jake Long to a one-year contract.

Long has not started a game since 2014, but the former No. 1 overall pick is a solid veteran addition for an offensive line which has lost both starting tackles to season-ending injuries. He will backup LT T.J. Clemmings and RT Jeremiah Sirles.

Free agent OT Jake Long worked out for the Vikings on Monday.

The Vikings need an extra body with Andre Smith (triceps) done for the season. Now 31, Long has appeared in just 11 games since 2013.

Free agent OT Jake Long's deal with the Ravens is officially off.

He declined to sign an injury waiver after Baltimore red-flagged his physical on Thursday. Long passed his exit physical with Atlanta last season and was deemed healthy by Dr. James Andrews last week. He'll try to catch on somewhere else as a camp flyer.

Updating a previous item, free agent OT Jake Long's deal with the Ravens is at least temporarily off due to a problematic physical.

It shouldn't come as a surprise for Long, whose career has been derailed and may now be threatened by injuries. "He's going to see Dr. James Andrews to evaluate his knee," the Ravens announced on Twitter. Long was going to go to Ravens camp to compete for a roster spot behind Ronnie Stanley and Rick Wagner.

Ravens agreed to terms with OT Jake Long on a one-year contract.

The former No. 1 overall pick spent 2015 in mothballs on the Falcons' bench. Now 31, the oft-injured Long says he's "finally healthy," but at best, he'll be the No. 3 tackle for a team that released Eugene Monroe last month. Ronnie Stanley and Ricky Wagner are the starters at tackle.

NJ.com reports there were questions about free agent OT Jake Long's desire in 2015.

Now 31, the former No. 1 overall pick spent 2015 riding the pine for the Falcons. Long said earlier this month that he's the healthiest he's been in "probably about five, six years." Sitting on the bench will certainly do that for you. Long was an elite talent in his prime, but his prime was short because of constant injury issues. He won't be more than a camp flier whenever he finally signs somewhere.

Free agent OT Jake Long said he is "finally healthy."

"This is the healthiest and best I've felt in probably about five, six years," Long said. "I've just been working out, feeling good and ready for the opportunity when it comes along." Long had to settle for a backup role in Atlanta last season after not seeing much interest on the free agent market, and he has generated even less this time around. The former No. 1 overall pick could earn a shot before camp, but it will be in a backup role at best. Long turned 31 in May.

Free agent OT Jake Long will visit the Bears on Thursday.

Long did not receive much interest coming off his second right ACL tear last offseason and had to settle for a backup role in Atlanta. Now two years removed from the injury, Long might be healthy enough to push uninspiring LT Charles Leno for snaps. The former No. 1 overall pick turned 31 last month.
Thu, Jun 2, 2016 08:27:00 AM

New Falcons OT Jake Long will begin as LT Jake Matthews' backup.

Coach Dan Quinn doesn't expect Long to be active for Week 2. Working his way back into shape, Long could/should eventually challenge Ryan Schraeder on the right side.

Falcons signed OT Jake Long.

The No. 1 overall pick of the Dolphins in 2008, Long has had his last two seasons ended by a torn ACL in his right knee. He is healthy now, however, and will offer a veteran backup behind sophomore Jake Matthews at left tackle. Long could also eventually push Ryan Schraeder for the starting job at right tackle.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 08:44:00 AM

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure expects the team to sign free agent OT Jake Long this week.

McClure qualified the expectation by saying, "as long as no other team outbids them." It is not a strong report from McClure, but it is one which would make quite a bit of sense, especially if Ryan Schraeder struggles at right tackle on Monday night. Long should find a team sometime in the very near future.

Free agent OT Jake Long will work out for the Falcons on Wednesday.

Long visited the team in July, but hadn't been medically cleared. He now has a clean bill of health, or at least as clean as it's going to get for a 30 year old with a long-and-winding injury history. The Falcons' line is one of the shakiest in the league, with Ryan Schraeder starting opposite blindside protector Jake Matthews and a ton of new faces throughout the interior.

Free agent OT Jake Long has been medically cleared to return to football.

Long is scheduled to work out for Atlanta on Wednesday. He visited the Giants twice this offseason, and ESPN's Dan Graziano said they remain interested as well. Long should find a home sometime in the next week.
Tue, Sep 8, 2015 12:26:00 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the team is keeping tabs on free agent T Jake Long.

"[Long is] somebody we still have talked about, for sure," Quinn said. "And a guy we have lots of regard for." Jake Matthews is locked in on the left side, but Atlanta could use an upgrade on Ryan Schraeder at right tackle. The Broncos and Giants have also shown interest.
