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.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is becoming one of the NFL's biggest stars. He racked up 1,770 all-purpose yards this season and 15 total touchdowns (6 receiving, 8 rushing, 1 passing). Samuel has frustrated opposing defenses as a receiver, as a rusher, and even tossed a touchdown pass this past weekend against the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel is in his third NFL season, which means it's time to start thinking about a contract extension for the 25-year-old star. He's positioned himself to be among the highest-paid players at his position. However, Samuel is unique in that he does so much more than just playing wide receiver. "Deebo's going to be well compensated, and we plan on him being a Niner for a long time," general manager John Lynch said
