Falcons Work Out Jake Long


Recommended Posts

@mortreport: Jake Long is in Atlanta for physical and a workout with @AtlantaFalcons. He's a free agent after 2nd ACL surgery with Rams in 2014

@AdamSchefter: Former No. 1 overall pick Jake Long is set to work out for the Atlanta Falcons this afternoon, per @mortreport.

@vxmcclure23: We will see if Jake Long checks out physically with the Falcons today. Jake Matthews (Lisfranc) coming off injury

@mortreport: If Long is signed by Falcons, Dolphins' former No. 1 pick in 2008 would be protecting blind side of Matt Ryan, the No. 3 pick in same draft

No likes from Lamar Holmes on this post? tongue.png

Not a bad move, he's decent when healthy so if he can fill in a little bit if someone else gets dinged up, great. Can't hurt in the "let's kick the tires on this" sense.

Well, since you asked...

And reserve Lamar Holmes (broken foot) likely to start on PUP. Tyler Polumbus didn't impress while playing both sides

well what this tells me is Falcons are not confident about what they have at offensive tackle. just hope it has more to do w/ Schaeder, Holmes and Polumbus and less to do w/ Jake Matthews.

Holmes is starting out on PUP, and the next man up is Polumbus, who McClure says the coaches weren't impressed with. The main reason for this move, is that they don't have a clear timetable on Holmes' return.

Now this I would love, if he's healthy. He would be the perfect stop-gap for a year or two until we can find someone to play opposite our own Jake long-term. He probably won't be expensive after all the injuries either.

This is what it really comes down to. Nothing else really matters.

will likely sign Jake to be the swing tackle on a 1year deal - much better insurance policy than Polumbus.

I would welcome the signing because after Matthews/Schraeder, the depth is shaky. What is the harm in giving Long a short-term deal with incentives? The offensive line could use some more bodies and who knows, maybe this signing could turn into something more than a depth signing
