Jets Release Spencer Long
The NY Jets have announced that they have released C\G Spencer Long. He was due a 3 million dollar roster bonus if he remained on the roster, that is why the move was done at this time. Long struggled at center this past season, a hand injury impacted his ability to snap. He was moved to guard and played better there. Adam Gase and company must not have been impressed so they are moving in another direction.

After signing with the Green & White last March, Long appeared in and started 13 games while playing both center and left guard.
The 28-year-old Long, who spent his first four pro seasons with the Washington Redskins, opened the season at center before battling finger and leg injuries. After James Carpenter went to injured reserve, Long shifted to left guard and veteran Jonotthan Harrison moved to center.
A third-round pick of Washington in the 2014 draft, the 6’5”, 318-pound Long has appeared in 53 NFL contests and started 44.
