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. Jul 26 - 1:46 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Broncos are "passing" on free agent OT Jake Long.

The Broncos have an ugly tackle situation with second-rounder Ty Sambrailo and Chris Clark penciled in as the Week 1 starters, but they didn't see enough from Long to take a flier. Long has also visited the Giants and Falcons.

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.
Tue, Jul 28, 2015 12:56:00 PM

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.
