Three-time Pro Bowl guard Kyle Long visited the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday.
The news was first reported by Adam Schefter last night.
Originally a first-round pick for the Chicago Bears in 2013, Long became a three-time Pro Bowler during the first three seasons of his career. He was a Pro Bowler both as a guard and a tackle.
After Long’s initial rookie contract, he signed a long-term contract in 2016.
However, injuries kept Long on the sidelines and the greatest number of games played in a single season was 10 games.
Between 2016 and 2019, Long played in only 30 games.
After struggling with injuries for years, Long retired in 2019.
It looks like a year off was enough for Long as he is visiting the Raiders today and is expected to visit the Kansas City Chiefs in the following days.
If Long does come to the Silver and Black, it won’t be the first time the Long name has played for the Raiders.
His father, Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long, played for the Raiders during his 13-year long career.
A second-round pick in 1981, Howie Long was an eight-time Pro Bowler, a three-time first-team All-Pro who was the 1985 NFL Defensive player of the Year.
Howie Long was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000.
Raider Nation will have to see if Kyle follows in his father’s footsteps.
