49ers announce roster moves: Sign OL Spencer Long and release DL Alex Barrett

Aug 13, 2020 at 10:10 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced two roster moves on Thursday. The first was the signing of offensive lineman Spencer Long, which was first reported by his agent on August 8. The second was the move to make room for Long — the release of defensive lineman Alex Barrett, who was re-signed on August 2 after being waived days earlier.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.



Long (6-5, 318) was originally drafted by Washington in the third round (78th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. Throughout his six-year career with Washington (2014-17), the New York Jets (2018), and Buffalo Bills (2019), he has appeared in 67 games (44 starts) along the offensive line. He has also appeared in two career postseason contests (one start). In 2019 with Buffalo, Long saw action in 14 regular-season games and one postseason contest. He was released by the Bills on August 4, 2020.

A 29-year-old native of Elkhorn, NE, Long attended the University of Nebraska for five years (2009-13), where he started all 33 games in which he appeared for the Cornhuskers.

Barrett (6-2, 250) re-signed with the team on August 2, 2020, after being waived on July 30.

On Friday, the San Francisco 49ers listed defensive lineman Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is "questionable" as he deals with a hamstring injury. In preparation for potentially missing Armstead, the 49ers announced that they have promoted defensive lineman T.Y. McGill from the practice squad to the active roster. They could not temporarily elevate him from the practice squad because the team had already done so three times, the maximum for one season. San Francisco waived defensive lineman Kemoko Turay to open the roster spot necessary for promoting McGill. Turay has been inactive for five games this season, including the past three.
