Report: Jets reach deal with C Long
The New York Jets made sure to address the quarterback position on Tuesday. On Wednesday, they made a move to figure out who will be snapping the ball to the eventual starter.
The Jets have reached a deal with former Washington Redskins center Spencer Long, according to multiple reports.
After agreeing to re-sign veteran QB Josh McCown on Tuesday, the Jets also agreed to terms with former Minnesota Vikings signal-caller Teddy Bridgewater, according to multiple reports.
Both quarterbacks will reportedly receive one-year deals, with McCown's worth $10 million and Bridgewater's worth about half that, per an ESPN report. Newsday reported earlier on Tuesday that McCown had been promised the team's starting job prior to agreeing to re-sign.
Long, 27, finished the 2017 season on IR with a quad injury, started 31 games in four seasons with the Redskins after being taken in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
He can also play guard.
