Report: Falcons are hoping to sign Jake Long this week

Jake Long is on his second free agent visit today. This is with the Atlanta Falcons

Jake Long could be an Atlanta Falcon soon

Atlanta Falcons play tonight, and according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN, the Falcons are hoping to announce the signing of veteran tackle Jake Long this week.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said not to read too much into the team bringing Long in for a second look last week. Long didn’t get signed immediately after last Thursday’s workout. But that didn’t mean the interest in Long suddenly faded.

According to McClure:

I expect the Falcons to sign Long to bring more depth to the offensive line — as long as no other team outbids them. The move won’t have anything to do with the status of left tackle Jake Matthews coming off a strained back. And it won’t necessarily be a product of how Ryan Schraeder performs at right tackle Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, either.
