The Jets now have someone to snap it to all their new quarterbacks.

According to Jason La Canfora of, the Jets are acquiring center Spencer Long from Washington.

Long, 27, dealt with a quad injury last year which limited him to seven games. The former third-round pick from Nebraska started 25 games in 2015 and 2016.

He can also play guard, and the Jets needed more help up front to protect Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater (and whoever comes in next).

  1. I swear, I’ve been commenting on here for the last few weeks, saying that we need to re-sign McCown, and use the money we save to pickup a QB, Veteran RB while we groom McGuire, OLB, and OL. We’ve addressed almost every one of those needs in Free Agency already. For the first time in a long time, I feel like this franchise is actually making the appropriate moves to become a consistent winner. This has been a great 24hrs.

  2. Ok – solid FA period so far. Don’t know much about this cat but if healthy he’s a huge upgrade. Definitely an are we will still need to adress in the draft

  3. Washington has greatly improved at retaining its homegrown depth but this is the next rung up and they’re not good at it yet: retaining homegrown starters. Long, Breeland, Grant, and most notably Cousins all gone in two days.

    It’s a bummer to use mid and late picks on these guys, see them actually pan out, and then just have them walk. Maybe Washington didn’t really want these guys back, but when your mid-round picks hit maybe you should want them back.

  4. I’m so glad they didn’t spend that money on cousins. However, I’m starting to get a little worried about the ability to re-sign anyone at all. Right now, on paper, we are a worse team after a few days. I hope they have a plan of some sort. HTTR

  5. Lots of offseason to go but it’s been much more value out than in for Washington so far.

    OUT: Kirk Cousins, Kendall Fuller, 3rd Round Pick, Bashaud Breeland, Spencer Long, Ryan Grant (and likely soon Zach Brown).

    IN: Alex Smith, Paul Richardson

    Not feeling horrible about it yet, but definitely starting to feel a little uneasy.

  6. The Jets 2017 Center Wes Johnson was terrible. If Spencer Long is just average, it should greatly improve the Oline. Not saying it will be great, just that it wont stink at times, where the guards play was downgraded because of the Center.
