The Jets are letting Spencer Long go, but they may try to bring him back.
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports that the Jets are declining to pay Long's $3.5 million roster bonus, which will make the center a free agent. The move clears $6.5 million in cap space and leaves no dead money.
While the Jets are interested in bringing back Long at a reduced cost, Vacchiano reports he might first sift through the market to see if he can get more money.
Long was signed to a four-year, $27 million deal last year to be the Jets' starting center. Should the Jets bring him back, they could give him a look at guard, where Long played well late in the season.
Long, 28, started 13 games for the Jets in 2018 after playing his first four NFL seasons with Washington.
