Spencer Long was released Tuesday by the New York Jets.

The former Husker lineman spent one season in New York, starting 13 games at both center and guard. He signed a four-year deal with the Jets last offseason after spending four years with the Washington Redskins.

Long was on a four-year contract with the Jets. He was set to make a base salary of $3 million in 2019 and would have received a bonus of nearly $3.5 million had he remained on the Jets' roster.

Long was a fourth-round draft pick of the Redskins in 2014. He played in 40 games with 31 starts for Washington before going to New York in 2018.

A graduate of Elkhorn High School, Long was a three-year starter for the Huskers at right guard, though his senior season in 2013 was cut short due to a knee injury.
