49ers Place C Spencer Long On Retired List, WR Chris Thompson Reverts To IR


The San Francisco 49ers placed C Spencer Long on the reserve/retired list and WR Chris Thompson reverted to the injured reserve list after clearing waivers.

Long, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Redskins back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,863,800 contract with the Redskins before agreeing to a four-year, $28 million deal with the Jets. 

Long was set to make base salaries of $3 million and $6.25 million over the next two years of the agreement when the Jets released him in 2019. He signed a three-year, $15 million deal with the Bills. 

Buffalo elected to release him last week after exercising his option back in March. Long just recently signed on with the 49ers. 

In 2019, Long appeared in 14 games for the Bills as a reserve offensive lineman.
