Draft Scout Jake Long News
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.
10/12/16 - T Jake Long, a four-time Pro Bowler and one-time first-team All-Pro, signed with the Vikings. Long is 31 with a long history of injuries that include a bad back, torn triceps, torn biceps and two torn ACLs. But he has a connection to line coach Tony Sparano, who was Dolphins head coach when Miami selected Long No. 1 overall in 2008.
He's also apparently healthy again and two years removed from his last major injury, a torn ACL. Long practiced on Tuesday, the last day before the Vikings scattered for their bye week. He spent most of his time at left tackle "just to knock the rust off," but also saw a few snaps at right tackle.
07/28/16 - LT Jake Long was expected to provide the Ravens with valuable depth on the offensive line after he signed a one-year deal. However, the team is still trying to determine if he is healthy enough to play. Long, 31, had his right knee examined by an orthopedic surgeon to determine if there is still damage from back-to-back tears in his ACL that occurred 2013 and 2014. Last season, Long was limited to four games with the Atlanta Falcons.
07/26/16 - OT Jake Long has agreed to terms with the Baltimore Ravens. The agreement is for one season, according to ESPN. Long, a four-time Pro Bowler, is expected to sign the contract on Tuesday night. Long, 31, played in just four games for the Atlanta Falcons last season after tearing the ACL in his right knee in each of the previous two campaigns. Long was the No. 1 overall selection of the 2008 NFL draft by the Miami Dolphins. He played five seasons with Miami before playing two with the Rams and one with Atlanta.
09/16/15 - T Jake Long was signed by the Falcons Tuesday (Sept. 15). Long, the No. 1 overall pick in 2008 with the Miami Dolphins, made multiple stops to the team's Flowery Branch, Ga., headquarters for team physicians to gauge his physical readiness to return to football. He was released by the St. Louis Rams and is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered during the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
