Rams released LT Jake Long.
The move saves $8 million in cap room. This decision was an easy one for the Rams, who will move forward with Greg Robinson at left tackle. Long spent two years in St. Louis, finishing both on injured reserve. Turning 30 in May, Long is currently rehabbing an ACL tear and may be weighing retirement. Mar 9 - 6:39 PM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner reports $4 million of OL Jake Long's $9.25 million base salary becomes guaranteed if he's on the roster March 14.

The Rams are saying they're entertaining the idea of moving Long to right tackle or kicking him inside to guard with 2014 No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson taking over as the full-time left tackle. Nobody is buying it, so the Rams should get to moving on from Long in the very near future. Releasing him would clear a much-needed $8 million in cap space. The Rams badly need healthy linemen.
Mar 3 - 8:50 PM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner still considers Jake Long more likely to be released than return on a restructured contract.

The cap-strapped Rams can free up $8 million by releasing the 2013 free-agent signee, who has ended both of his St. Louis campaigns on injured reserve. The team has already said it is moving forward with Greg Robinson at left tackle. Going on 30 with an injury history as long as the Appalachian Trail, Long will likely think long and hard about hanging up his cleats.

ESPN's Nick Wagoner believes "it's not out of the question" the Rams bring back OT Jake Long.

Coming back from his second consecutive ACL surgery and due $10.5 million, Long is expected to be released if he doesn't take a pay cut. The Rams have already committed to Greg Robinson as their left tackle, but Long could be moved to right tackle or guard. The Rams would save $8 million by cutting Long.

Rams GM Les Snead said Jake Long had a couple early-rehab setbacks in his recovery from a torn ACL.

Snead added that Long is now "progressing well." It's fair to wonder if all the injuries are finally starting to catch up to Long, as he's ended each of the past four seasons on injured reserve. The Rams are moving forward with Greg Robinson as their left tackle, which means Long is likely to be cut. The move would save the Rams $8 million against the cap. Long's best days are behind him.
Feb 18 - 3:22 PM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner expects the team to release LT Jake Long or ask him to take a pay cut.

Long is almost certainly going to be cut. The Rams have already said Greg Robinson will be the left tackle in 2015. Long has never played any other position in the NFL. He also has one of the lengthiest injury histories in the league. St. Louis is already projected to be over the salary cap. It can clear $8 million by releasing Long. C Scott Wells should also be an easy cut for GM Les Snead.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher is unsure if LT Jake Long (torn right ACL) wants to continue his playing career.

Long has two seasons left on the four-year, $34 million deal he signed in 2013, but has as long an injury history as any player in the NFL. Long has torn his right ACL twice in the past two years, and dealt with knee, back, shoulder and biceps issues in Miami. If Long is back, Fisher said it will not be as left tackle, as 2014 first-rounder Greg Robinson will be installed on the blindside. Fisher did say he believes Long has the "athletic capability" of playing guard. Long turns 30 in May.

A source tells PFT that Rams LT Jake Long indeed tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss at Kansas City.

He'll be placed on injured reserve. This is the same ACL that Long tore in Week 16 last season. So the four-time Pro Bowler, who was already declining toward average on-field levels, now faces another long rehab process. He's failing to return value on the four-year, $34 million deal the Rams gave him in March of 2013. No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson will slide to left tackle and Mike Person will likely slide in at guard.

Pro Football Talk reports the Rams believe LT Jake Long suffered a torn ACL in the team's Week 8 loss to the Chiefs.

The injury is likely season-ending. Long was solid in his first season with the Rams in 2013, but tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee Week 16 and has never been the same. It is not a given Long will return to an All-Pro level after two devastating knee injuries, but the Rams are unlikely to give up on a 29-year-old left tackle. Long is scheduled to make $9.25 million in 2015.

Rams LT Jake Long exited Week 8 against the Chiefs with a knee injury and is done for the day.

Long and RT Joe Barksdale were getting whipped by Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. One of the Rams' many free-agent busts, Long has been getting beaten badly on a weekly basis. No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson has kicked outside from left guard to left tackle. Mike Person is in at left guard.

Rams LT Jake Long (knee) was a full participant Tuesday's practice, and will be active for Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

Long is ready to return to Sam Bradford's blindside. Barring a setback in this weekend's regular-season dress rehearsal, Long will be all-systems-go for Week 1.
Tue, Aug 19, 2014 07:27:00 PM

Rams LT Jake Long (ACL) will sit out Friday's preseason opener.

It's quite possible Long will sit out the entire preseason, but he remains on track for Week 1. The Rams have nothing to gain by trotting their injury-prone blindside protector out in exhibition action.
Tue, Aug 5, 2014 08:54:00 PM

Rams LT Jake Long (ACL) took a "few repetitions" in team drills on Thursday.

Long did not participate in one-on-one pass-rush drills, but it's an important step in what's been a smooth recovery to this point in time. Barring a setback, Long is fully expected to man Sam Bradford's blindside come Week 1.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher expects LT Jake Long (ACL) to return "somewhere in the middle part of training camp."

Long is going to sit out all of June, but remains on pace for Week 1. Second-year UDFA Sean Hooey has been running with the first team, as the Rams want Rodger Saffold and No. 2 pick Greg Robinson to focus on guard. One of Saffold or Robinson would kick to the blindside on the off chance Long isn't ready for Week 1.

Rams LT Jake Long (knee) will sit out this week's minicamp.

Long's ACL tear happened two months after Sam Bradford's so he's a little further behind in the rehab process. Long also needed his MCL repaired. The Rams aren't worried though, and project to field a mauling offensive line this year featuring Long, No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson and Rodger Saffold.
