I was impressed with Long while he filled in for Jayon last year. 

He filled in well in the playoffs in 19. He isn’t a coverage backer though. He’s definitely an undersized strong side backer with some upside in zone coverage.

We all knew Evans wasn’t getting the 5th year option.    He has always stood out on the goal line, but otherwise he has been a disappointment. If they want to get something out of him, use him

He was solid in 2019. He wasn’t great, but he definitely wasn’t a massive liability like he was every single game last year. He also showed up in big spots in the 2 playoff wins.    You’re righ

you have it backwards.... Long was forced to play Brown's position last year due to injuries. Long is Evans replacement, Rice could be Brown's.

I mean, it seemed pretty clear that drafting Rice was all about Evans insurance one way or the other. Long is already the insurance for Jayon. I hope not, but either starter could be out or benched.

 

 I thought without looking to see if it makes sense they could send Evans to ATL because of Pees, but I always kind of saw him as  being seduced by the Ravens as a free agent. Or the Patriots.
 

But I’m afraid trading him is not an affordable luxury right now.

If the real plan for JRob is to not re-sign Evans at the end of the year, then we can only hope we can get a Corey Davis type of year that he had last year out of him this season. 

Well, there isn’t going to be any Corey Davis type of year, but he could get some sacks as a pass rush specialist and actually have some value.

Unlikely - Rice could play WILB in a pinch but is much better suited to Evan's position, moreso than Long. 

 

Long isn't an ideal fit for WILB either, but better than Rice.

I don't agree. We'll see what happens. If Long can't play Evans' position he won't have a future on this team.

I don't think Long does have a future on the team. He'd basically just be an average starter at best if he fully maximizes his potential. He's more of a career backup imo

Evans knows he is playing this year for his next deal elewhere ala Conklin and Davis.  I love that JRob sent the message with Rice.  Camp is going to be interesting for these two.

I think we'll resign Jayon to a new deal after this season

 

Agreed. And Wyatt seemed pretty sure of it as well.

I like Brown but its way too early to assume he's get resigned based on how he played last year. He needs to show last year was an anomaly.
