DL Jerome Long, a Chiefs seventh-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft spent the season on the team’s practice squad. Or, at least he did until Thursday night.
That’s when he jumped ship for an offer to be on the Jacksonville Jaguars 53-man roster. The Jags signed him in a move obviously designed on the future rather than actually playing this Sunday against Tennessee.
Jacksonville opened a roster spot by placed RB Maurice Jones-Drew on the injured-reserve list. Jones-Drew missed the final 10 games of the season due to a foot injury.
