Long was scheduled to make $9.25 million in 2015, with a $10.5 million cap hit. Wells would have made $2 million with a $4.75 million hit. Combined, the two moves save about $12 million against the 2015 cap.
Jeff Fisher updated the injury status of two
Fisher announced that left tackle
While veteran tackle
"We’re going to wait and see for Jake and see how he’s feeling," Fisher said. "He’s been in the building the last couple of days. All indications are that he wants to come back. Yeah, as we stand right now Greg’s going to be our left tackle."
If Long decides to return next season, the Rams are already considering where he might play along the offensive line.
"Jake’s a good enough athlete that he could play -- I’m not going to go out on a limb and say he could play center -- but yeah, he could play guard or play right tackle, I believe,” Fisher said.
Long was the top overall pick in the 2008 draft by the Dolphins.
"Jake has re-torn his ACL. He will be out for the remainder of the season," Fisher said, per the team's official website. "Jake worked really, really hard to get back. And it’s kind of an isolated incident, isolated contact, and it’s just kind of a freak thing. We just appreciate him … his work, and the difficulty associated with coming back from that injury. But he’s done it once, and he’ll do it again."
