Grading the Vikings Signing of Jake Long

The Minnesota Vikings offensive line just lost another man to I.R. and they had to go out and sign someone.  Who they signed was former no. 1 overall pick and Pro Bowler Jake Long.  Long hasn’t been himself after a couple of ACL surgeries, and age getting the best of him. That being said, he provides a veteran presence on a line that isn’t exactly oozing with experience.

Long can back up Clemmings at left tackle and also Sirles at right.  If Clemmings continues to struggle as badly as he did against the Texans, Long could be starting sooner than later.  Overall this isn’t a great signing but was pretty much the best option that was out there.
