Free agent offensive tackle Jake Long says that he is fully healthy and ready for a chance to suit up for an NFL team, according to ESPN. 

“This is the healthiest and best I’ve felt in probably about five, six years. My knee’s back. I've just been working out, feeling good and ready for the opportunity when it comes along,” Long said to ESPN.

The No. 1 pick in 2008, Long has struggled to stay on the field the last few years after suffering tears to his right ACL in 2013 and ’14.

He signed with the Atlanta Falcons last season, but saw minimal snaps over the four games he played.

The 31-year-old was named to four Pro Bowls during his time with the Miami Dolphins and was an All-Pro in 2010.
