Jake Long to Visit With Broncos

Former Dolphins and Rams offensive tackle Jake Long is set to visit the Broncos this week.

The report first came from Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, after Long finished a visit with the New York Giants. Vacchiano reported that Long was also set to visit Atlanta.

Why didn’t the Broncos do this earlier? Based on Vacchiano’s report, it was because teams weren’t convinced Long had fully recovered from his latest injury last October. Keep in mind that Long has twice torn the ACL in his right knee in the past two seasons, so it isn’t a sure thing that he’d be an upgrade over current Bronco linemen.

ETA: Andrew Mason has a friendly reminder.

It certainly doesn’t hurt to have Long visit, though.
