The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Thursday that the club has signed free agent guard Kyle Long.
"We had an opportunity to meet with Kyle yesterday, and what really stood out was how much he loves the game and his drive to get back on the field," General Manager Brett Veach said. "He's in great shape, a three-time Pro Bowler and a really smart player with an incredible football pedigree. We're happy he chose to come here to Kansas City."
Long (6-6, 332) originally entered the NFL as a first-round pick (20th overall) of the Chicago Bears in the 2013 NFL Draft. He spent seven seasons with the Bears (2013-19), playing in 77 games (76 starts) before electing to sit out the 2020 season. Long earned three-consecutive Pro Bowl selections from 2013-15, was second-team All-Pro in 2014, and in 2013 he earned a spot on the PFWA's All-Rookie Team.
The Ivy, Virginia, native played collegiately at Oregon. He is the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long and the brother of retired NFL defensive end Chris Long.
