That modified into the case in 2016 when the guard signed a four-year extension with the Bears. But with an out impending in his contract, Long determined to renew his vows with the group that drafted him in the most necessary round in 2013.

The team later confirmed the news.
Long carried an $8.5 million cap hit in 2019 earlier than the restructuring. The terms of the contemporary deal have faith no longer yet been disclosed, though Rapoport deemed it a “minor alteration.”
The guard missed half of of closing year with a foot wound but returned for Chicago’s final two games along with the wild-card loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
On a roster largely void of holes, assuring Long has a say in Chicago for the foreseeable future is a critical sure trend for the Bears.
