Jets Release Spencer Long

Recommended Posts

IMG_8176-1.jpg

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.

We have released OL Spencer Long.

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.

Here is a thread in our forums about Spencer Long.

The post Jets Release Spencer Long appeared first on JetNation.com (NY Jets Blog & Forum).

One of the worst snappers ever and that was even before the finger injury.

He had a pretty bad season with us and I think some of that was due to injuries. It won't be hard to replace the play he gave us last year but I think he was a better player than what we got from him. If we don't land moorse or paradis in free agency this move could come back to bite us.

This move allows him and the Jets to see what his worth is on the market. They may get back together yet again.

Many times I've wished the Jets would trade back, accumulate extra picks and then draft Olinemen.

Every year I hear about guys we can pick up in the draft. 

Every year we dont draft Olinemen

Every year our Oline sucks.

Trade down, draft linemen. 

**** you Maccagnan

This is a big offseason for Macca6nan.

Thought he was an adequate pass protection G once they moved him. Maybe resign for $2-3M as a backup/depth. We might need a few extra OL if we run a hurry up offense.

Will NEVER forget his last game at C.

wait.  Your pronoun usage is confusing.  It's almost as if you are a Jets fan.

Surprising, isn't it? 

I was never not a Jets fan. I just don't allow other fans to dictate how I demonstrate my fandom or what other teams I can enjoy watching when Maccagnan is putting together crap rosters and the Johnson's a crappy coaching staff.

agree that cutting him was pretty easy and it all comes down to saving 3 million.  but at the same time having a revolving door on the oline is not a good thing.  these guys need to play together for quite some time before they get really great.  it used to be that it took 3 seasons for an oline to come together.  and while we shouldn't think his replacement will be worse as a reason to keep him, with mac drafting there's no telling based on his past draft and free agency record.

It saves $6MM

It saves $3MM only if he was going to be cut later this offseason

Jets may bring him back at a lesser salary.

Also true, but hopefully he first tries to upgrade before locking the team into another year of going with the fallback plan.

The advantage of a QB making $20MM below market value is not to save $20MM outright; it's to spend it elsewhere. OL seems as good a place as any.

And you wonder why you are always getting banned.

Reading your posts seriously makes me wonder if something is wrong with you. Please spare me the PM explaining how the other person started it again.

I’m not sure why you hate the Gase hire but applaud the Browns for promoting Freddie Kitchens.

That would’ve been like the Jets promoting Jeremy Bates to HC just because Darnold was the highest rated QB in the league over the last 4 weeks of the season.

And the crazy thing is, Bates is actually more qualified than Kitchens.

Its not that he was bad Joe, the guy had two broken fingers on his snapping hand, and our brilliant coach thought it was a better idea to leave him in and send 15 balls over Sam's head rather then change him.

I bet we resign him as guard/center depth, which I think would be good, given he won't have much of a market this season.

His favorite player in on the Browns that’s why 😂

At this point Jets should be looking for lineman at Golden Corral. The neglect of the OL has been criminal.
