The Giants brought in former top-overall pick
"We'll continue to look around," Reese said. "Obviously, everybody has around 90 men on their roster right now, so there'll be some cuts; there will be some chances to add some offensive linemen."
Long is coming off of consecutive season-ending knee injuries, which can explain why the Giants would be hesitant to sign him just yet.
Free-agent offensive tackle
The Giants are having to shuffle their offensive line with Will Beatty expected to miss the first part of the season with a pec injury. Long was scheduled to make $9.25 million in 2015 but was released by the Rams in March.
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.
