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.
