This April, Bears decide to execute the fifth-year of the 2013 first-round pick’s contract. Before the renewal, Long’s contract still left two years.

Long has always been a rock of the Bears offensive line with his performance overall regardless of the position.

Long served as a guard in the first two season and moved to the right tackle in 2015 season. At the start of the new season, he will return to the guard. However, he has been troubled by a shoulder injury recently.

Bears offensive lineup still has many problems during the regular season, but Long will remain in the Bears in the foreseeable future.
