Jake Long, OT
New York missed out on Russell Okung and Eugene Monroe after neither were interested in playing the right tackle position. Long, on the other hand does not have anywhere close to that kind of leverage to deny moving over. The 31-year old played just 10 snaps for the Atlanta Falcons last season and has had to battle back from two ACL tears during his career. he’s not the solution to the Giants’ offensive line conundrum by any means, yet it might be worth seeing what he has left in the tank during training camp.
As a free agent last year, Long visited New York twice, but left both times without a deal and eventually signed with Atlanta. It’s likely the front office has a pretty good idea of what Long is capable of already. Therefore, the fact that it seems the Giants have shown zero interest to date in bringing him aboard this time around should be a pretty clear indicator that even a tryout at the very least is far from imminent.
Still, Long recently told ESPN he felt 100% healthy and is knee is no longer bothering him. Should Reese really start to feel concerned about his offensive line as the season inches closer he may be worth a look.
