ORIGINAL STORY

When the New York Giants drafted Ereck Flowers out of Miami with the ninth overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, it was with the expectation that they were putting the finishing touches on their offensive line.

That plan went out the window when franchise left tackle Will Beatty tore his pectoral muscle bench pressing in preparation for the offseason. Since that day the Giants have been exploring all available options for replacing Beatty.

One of those options has been Jake Long, the former 1st overall pick, Probowl, and All-Pro left tackle. Normally players of Long's caliber aren't on the open market as training camps open, however Long is coming off a pair of ACL tears.

The Giants had Long in for a visit earlier in the offseason to check on the status of his knee. Today Rand Getlin of the NFL Network is reporting that the Giants will be hosting Long for a second workout

Later, Art Stapleton reported that Long is in Giants-land sooner than expected

At this point we still don't know the status of Long's knee, how his workouts have gone, and if there are any offers on the table by the Atlanta Falcons or Giants. Stay tuned for more information as we get it.
