Fortunate enough, Eagles’ defensive end Chris Long will be back with the Philadelphia Eagles next season, but not before having five sacks, including three strip-sacks last season. The green flag comes into play once Long accepted his contract restructure on Thursday that the Eagles dealt him earlier this week for his spectacular 2017 season.
Next season Long is set to make nearly $4 million in guaranteed base salary. He is held under contract throughout the 2019 season, but doubtful he’ll come back considering he already considered retirement this offseason.
Chris Long and LeGarrette Blount whom were both on the team’s roster contributed to an NFL record, which is being one of the very few players to win back-to-back Super Bowls while on different teams. But after Blount agreed to a deal with the Detroit Lions, he and Long parted-ways after two years of being teammates.
Obviously, Long looks to do even better next year as any other player would want. Nonetheless, is if the Eagles don’t make it to the Super Bowl again next year, which hopefully won’t be the case, it’ll be likely that he retires without being a World Champion as he would if he retired now. But that’s not that’s not the important thing, keeping the team healthy is, which hopefully Chris Long will do by taking over and put on a spectacular job like he did last season, if something were to happen to defensive end Brandon Graham.
