Minnesota Vikings Sign Former No. 1 Pick Jake Long
The 5-0 Minnesota Vikings continue to make moves to replace some injured players.
Veteran tackle Jake Long signed a one-year contract with the Vikings, he'll replace Andre Smith who is on injured reserve.
Long was drafted No. 1 overall out of Michigan by the Miami Dolphins in the 2008 NFL Draft. Long will join his old teammate and also former No. 1 pick, Sam Bradford after playing together in St. Louis during the 2013 season.
Long has had some injury issues, but if he can remain healthy, he should be able to help this season. Expect him to start when the Vikings return from their bye week and travel to Philly to take on the Eagles.
