Last week, the Jets decided to let C Spencer Long go, as they declined to pay his $3.5 million roster bonus. They were, however, considering bringing him back at a reduced rate for the 2019-20 season, per SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.
So much for that.
The Bills, an AFC East rival, signed Long to a three-year deal, as he was a free agent once the Jets parted ways with him. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Long's deal is worth $13 million that could reach a max $15 million with incentives.
Thank you Buffalo! Had an awesome visit can't wait to get to work. https://t.co/5YZwmiQM6T- Spencer Long (@slong_61) February 12, 2019
Long signed a four-year, $27 million deal with the Jets to be their answer at center for years to come. However, that didn't work out as Long was shifted to left guard where he looked better late that season.
The 28-year-old Long came to the Jets after playing his first four seasons with the Redskins.
