Friday morning news from ESPN NFL guy Field Yates:

Maybe they could use that cap space to sign or trade for…. a running back!

But wait –

There’s more, and it involves Chris Long, who is maybe coming back? Or not? After the jump, here’s Yates’ response to NJ.Com’s Mike Kaye, asking if that news confirms a Long return:

And Long himself jumped in:

So while we don’t know what’s going on with Chris Long, Bradham’s contract was set to count $9 million against the cap this year, with $8 million guaranteed and a $1 million bonus. Long was going to hit at $5.6 million with $3.5m guaranteed and the $2 million roster bonus Yates mentioned above. There are three voidable contract years, including this one. 

Standing by for more news.
