When the Jets released Spencer Long last week, a possible reunion with the Redskins made a decent amount of sense.
Washington is where Long's career started after all, and the team needs a new plan at left guard following an unlucky and unproductive year at that spot.
Long isn't going to return to the 'Skins, though. On Tuesday, the Bills announced that they had signed the 28-year-old to a three-year contract.
The move gives Buffalo depth at the very minimum and someone who could start at a few different places, too.
As for the Redskins, the organization never really looked at bringing Long back, per NBC Sports Washington's Ben Standig.
Not signing Long shouldn't be something that fans lament. The franchise still has months to go and both free agency and the draft to address their interior offensive line.
The 2014 draft pick would've been a sound but not superb guard option for the Redskins. By not even reaching out to him, it shows that Washington may have much higher hopes for that position moving forward.
