Former St. Louis Rams OT Jake Long is signing with the Baltimore Ravens.
So excited to be a part of the Ravens organization!! Back to football and a lot to prove. Time to get to work!!— Jake Long (@JakeLong77) July 26, 2016
Long signed with the Rams in 2013 after five years with the Miami Dolphins and an extended courtship that led to #whilewaitingforJake, a Twitter blitz that Long himself acknowledged. A knee injury near the end of the 2013 season preceded a 2014 mid-season reinjuring of the same knee that kicked Greg Robinson’s career into full swing.
Long played for the Atlanta Falcons in 2015, though he saw less than two dozen snaps over the course of the season.
Long will bring depth to the LT spot for the Ravens after they drafted Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley with the sixth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and released Eugene Monroe in mid-June.
The Rams moved on from Long in 2015 by drafting four offensive lineman, spending a supplemental draft pick on another and taking in one UDFA offensive tackle who ultimately made the team in Darrell Williams.
The Rams return all 10 of the offensive linemen who made the initial 2015 St. Louis Rams 53-man roster this season.
