- See Also Jake Long
- Long returned in time for the 2015 season, but was released in a cost saving move by the Rams.
- He signed a one year contract with the Falcons.
- In 2016, Jake briefly flirted with Baltimore, but ended up in Minnesota.
- He’d tear his Achilles in week 10 ending his season.
- Long retired during the 2017 offseason.
I had been meaning to get back to Jake for a while after getting a freebee back in 2014. I think I’d been kicking the tires on him for 3 to 4 years, so it makes sense he’s the first calendar success of 2023.
These Upper Deck cards- meh- they’re okay, but they were better than the junk that was designed for the ’08 season. The Score ’09 was definitely a set need, while the Topps 2014 was the slow evolution of the product from I think 2011. The design started resembling more of a fender, but eh I’m sorta okay with that. I thought it’d be nice to get one of him in his Rams attire- even if it is St. Louis.
