Free agent OT Jake Long will visit the Broncos.

Long is in New York visiting the Giants on Wednesday after meeting with the Falcons on Monday, so he's starting to get some play with teams opening training camp. Denver could use some help after losing LT Ryan Clady for the season.

Free agent OT Jake Long is visiting the Giants on Wednesday.

Long visited the Giants earlier in the offseason. They're likely having him back for another look to see how Long's progressing in his rehab from a torn ACL. New York needs tackle depth after losing LT Will Beatty to a torn pectoral.

Free agent LT Jake Long is working out for the Falcons Tuesday.

Long, recovering from his second ACL tear at 30 years old, has been on the street since the Rams cut him in March. The former No. 1 overall pick would be a low-risk addition for a Falcons team that desperately needs to protect Matt Ryan better. Left tackle Jake Matthews struggled badly as a rookie and potential right tackle Tyler Polumbus is not the answer. The Falcons are putting Long and his balky knees through a physical Tuesday.

Free agent LT Jake Long is considered "still in the picture" for the Giants.

The Giants hosted Long for a free agent visit late last month, and haven't ruled out signing him. There is suddenly a potential market for the injury-riddled Long, however, after both the Broncos and Giants lost their left tackles during OTAs. Long is taking his time coming off a second consecutive ACL tear. He is likely also hoping to land a deal with guaranteed money.

The Giants are in "no real rush" to sign free agent OT Jake Long.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo characterizes Long's Thursday visit as an "intro to the team/check on his rehab." Long is just seven months removed from re-tearing his right ACL. If he signs with the G-Men, it could be closer to camp after he's had more time to rehab. Camp is still two months away.

Free agent OT Jake Long visited the Giants on Thursday.

Long's visit, his first since being released by the Rams in March, comes six days after the Newark Star-Ledger reported the Giants might be interested. The G-Men need another body at tackle after LT Will Beatty tore his pec earlier this month. He's a big name, but injuries have rendered Long a shell of his former self. He turned 30 earlier in May.
May 28 - 8:47 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger believes the Giants could have interest in free agent OT Jake Long.

The Giants are looking to add offensive line depth after losing LT Will Beatty to a torn pectoral. Long’s career has been derailed by consecutive torn ACLs, but he could provide a veteran stopgap if healthy. Seven months removed from surgery, Long should be limited to non-guaranteed deals.
May 22 - 4:45 PM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch passes along "word" that free agent OT Jake Long wants to continue his football career.

Long is only 30 years old, but his career has been stalled by a series of major injuries. He tore his ACL last Week 8, and is believed to have had "early-rehab setbacks" in his recovery. There are a handful of teams that remain tackle needy after the draft. Long should be available for the vet minimum.
May 4 - 2:12 PM

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.
Feb 24 - 7:20 PM

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.
Feb 21 - 3:39 PM

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.
