Redskins Hosting Former Rams DE Chris Long For A Visit

Trey Wingo of ESPN reports that the Redskins are hosting former Rams DE Chris Long for a visit on Tuesday.

Recent reports have said that Long could have a decent amount of interest from NFL teams, but his preference is likely to be to sign on with a contender.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Long to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.

Long, 30, was in the final year of his five-year, $60.31 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $9.75 million for the 2016 season when he was released.

In 2015, Long appeared in 12 games and recorded 19 tackles, three sacks, and a forced fumble for the Rams. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 98 edge defender out of 110 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 100 – 2016 Free Agents list.
