49ers sign veteran C/G Spencer Long, per agent

Aug 8, 2020 at 9:51 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have signed veteran offensive lineman Spencer Long, according to his agent.


Long is 29 years old. San Francisco had an opening for an offensive lineman after Jake Brendel chose to opt-out of the 2020 season. Offensive tackle Shon Coleman also decided not to play amid a pandemic this season.

Washington made Long a third-round selection out of Nebraska in 2014. Long has 67 game appearances through his six NFL seasons. He played a season for the New York Jets before joining the Buffalo Bills in 2019.

Long appeared in 27 games over the past two seasons. He started 13 games in 2018 with the Jets but received the worst Pro Football Focus grade (47.1) of his career that season. Long was dealing with a finger injury that season, according to The Athletic.

When it comes to talking about the 49ers' group of wide receivers, the words of Yogi Berra seem to apply: "It's like deja vu all over again." Last year at about this time, the 49ers took a torpedo to their wide receiver plans when they lost both big-bodied rookie Jalen Hurd and the scrappy Trent Taylor to pre-season injuries. They had another rookie wideout, Deebo Samuel, who would later prove to be a gem for the team's offense, but at the time things were looking less than hopeful for the 49ers' chances of making significant strides toward a playoff appearance. In an effort to boost the receiver room last season, the 49ers brought in veteran Emmanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos, and it had a magical effect on the other wideouts for the rest of the
