Report: Jake Long visits New York Giants on Thursday

The New York Giants are exploring veteran options at left tackle after losing starter Will Beatty to a torn pectoral for at least five months.

Free agent Jake Long, a four-time Pro Bowl selection with the Dolphins early in his injury-plagued career, visited the Giants on Thursday, reports ESPN.com's Dan Granziano.

Long, 30, has languished on the open market since the Rams released him as a result of a twice-torn ACL in his right knee.

Provided his knee checks out, Long would provide veteran insurance for first-round draft pick Ereck Flowers, who lined up as the starting left tackle in OTAs this week.
