Long's career is pretty fascinating to look at as a whole. We're very thankful Chris chose to play for the Philadelphia Eagles, and congratulate him on a fantastic career. "He will always be part of the Eagles family". It was Long and offensive lineman Lane Johnson who became the face of the franchise, donning dog masks and firing back at the critics as the team marched through the playoffs and brought the city its first ever Super Bowl victory.
Smolenski might as well have shown the audience a picture of Long. His playing time - he played around half of the team's defensive snaps over the past two seasons - was slated to fall, and he didn't want to take on a reduced role.
The veteran leader was a key voice in the Eagles' locker room and a productive pass rusher on the field. He was tied for second in the league with four strip-sacks and was second on the team with 38 quarterback pressures. His fourth-quarter strip-sack of Rams quarterback Jared Goff in Los Angeles was recovered by the Eagles and led to the game-winning points. Long spent his first eight seasons in St. Louis before signing with New England as a free agent in 2016. With Philly, Long found more team success, helping Philly's dominant defense secure a No. 1 seed in the NFC.

And just like that, the Philadelphia Eagles have a big ole' question mark at DE number 3, as they will officially be without Chris Long for the 2019 season (as he's officially announced his retirement from football). He won back-to-back championships with the Patriots (2017) and Eagles (2018).
He donated his 2017 salary to charity.
