February 26, 2019
Long agreed to a restructured contract with the Bears on Friday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
Long was set to have a salary cap hit of $8.5 million in 2019, so the restructure secures his standing on Chicago's roster despite him missing 22 games over the last three seasons. The 30-year-old spent eight games on injured reserve with a foot injury in 2018 but was able to return for the regular season finale and playoffs. Long serves as an enormous locker room presence for the Bears.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2014
2013
With two Pro Bowl berths in two NFL seasons -- including second-team All-Pro honors in 2014 -- Long has asserted himself as the alpha dog on the Bears’ offensive line and as a team cornerstone. The former first-round pick regularly overwhelms defensive tackles with his strength and athleticism, leading many to speculate that a move from right guard to one of the tackle spots may be in the cards. Barring a training-camp injury to projected starting tackles Jermon Bushrod and Jordan Mills, the Bears aren’t likely to have Long change positions in 2015, so expect him to continue to overwhelm defensive linemen on the inside.
Started all 16 games as a rookie at right guard, earning All-Rookie honors and a trip to the Pro Bowl. Penciled in to start at guard again in 2014, but could be viewed as an option at right tackle if Jordan Mills proves ineffective.
The club's first-round draft pick out of Oregon, the athletic but lightly-experienced Long will be given every opportunity to win the starting right guard job.
