Draft Scout Jake Long News
04/24/17 - LT Jake Long, a former No. 1 overall draft pick, announced his NFL retirement after nine injury-plagued seasons. The first overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, Long played only four games with the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 before he suffered a torn Achilles on Nov. 13 to end his season. "As I continue with my recent rehab," Long wrote in his statement posted on Twitter, "I realize that although my heart and mind still want to play, my body is telling me something completely different." Long, who turns 32 next month, was named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first four seasons (2008-11) in the league before multiple injuries piled up.
11/14/16 - OT Jake Long suffered an Achilles injury that is believed to be season ending.
11/14/16 - LT Jake Long's injury-riddled career likely has ended with a torn Achilles' tendon suffered on the second-to-last offensive snap of Sunday's game. The first pick of the 2008 draft, Long was out of football when the desperate Vikings signed him during the bye week and played him with disastrous results in Philadelphia after the bye. He started the next three games AND was getting progressively more up to speed again before yet another injury took him down.
11/01/16 - LT Jake Long started at left tackle on Monday night. It was his first start with the Vikings in his second game with the team. The move sent T.J. Clemmings back to right tackle and Jeremiah Sirles to primary backup at the guard and tackle positions.
10/17/16 - LT Jake Long, who was signed last week during the bye, practiced Monday. He appeared at left tackle during the brief portion of practice that's open to the media. The Vikings could be looking at starting him against the Eagles on Sunday. They would move T.J. Clemmings back to right tackle. Clemmings has started only three games at left tackle. He started the last three games in place of Matt Kalil, who is on injured reserve. Clemmings played well in the first two games against Carolina and the Giants. But he gave up two sacks and was called for a face-masking penalty against Houston.
