Long was a former first-round pick of the Miami Dolphins in the 2008 NFL Draft, playing four seasons under Tony Sparano, who is now the Vikings offensive line coach according to an article by the Detroit Free Press. He was a four-time Pro Bowler and an All-Pro pick in 2010.
He then played two years with the St. Louis Rams before two ACL injuries sidelined him. He was then a reserve for the Atlanta Falcons last year.
