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.

Alex Smith is set to make his first start since suffering a gruesome and life-threatening leg injury on November 18, 2018. The story of the Washington quarterback, who started his career with the San Francisco 49ers, has been an inspiration. Many fans across the NFL landscape will be pulling for Smith on Sunday when the Washington Football Team faces the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. One of those fans is 49ers left tackle Trent Williams, who played with Smith in 2018. He joined KNBR on Thursday night and was asked about his former teammate. "It's a Cinderella story, for lack of a better word," Williams told Mark Willard. "I was actually one of those guys who seen Alex in the hospital after he had been through, I think it was 12 surgeries in 13 days or 11 surgeries

49ers-Saints: Still no sign of Deebo Samuel at practice, Kendrick Bourne returns

Reporters did not see San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during today's practice, which is the last of this week before the team boards a plane bound for New Orleans. That means the second-year wideout did not practice at all this week, making his availability for Sunday's game against the Saints very unlikely. Samuel is attempting to return from a hamstring injury suffered during the 49ers' Week 7 win over the New England Patriots. General manager John Lynch had hoped Samuel might be able to get onto the practice field today but noted that his availability for this weekend remained a long shot. "I think the final challenge or opportunity for Deebo to show that he can go is out here on Friday,"
