You could actually argue it either way.
A. It shows that they are serious about addressing the O-line, and will look to Jake Long.
B. It shows that they've added something to the O-line, and now there isn't really a place for Jake Long.
Personally, I'd suggest the latter. When there was a hole at OG, it could be argued (and was) that they could draft Long as a long-term replacement (forgive the inevitable pun) for Pace, and give him a year or two at OG until Pace retired. Now, there's no real hole at OG - though Long would, of course, be an upgrade - and he becomes something of a luxury, especially in comparison to their weakness on the D-line, which has not been addressed.
