One of Howie Long's sons could be continuing the Raiders legacy carried by the family.

Three-time Pro Bowl guard Kyle Long, who ended his one-year retirement last week, reportedly will meet with Las Vegas on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday night, citing a source.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal's Vincent Bonsignore confirmed the Long visit to the Raiders' facility.

Long, 32, was drafted No. 20 overall in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft and played seven years with the Chicago Bears before retiring following the 2019 season.

Schefter also reported that Long will visit the rival Kansas City Chiefs, so a union with the Raiders is no sure thing just yet.

But the Raiders are making wholesale changes to their offensive line this offseason, so bringing in Long makes sense.

The Raiders reportedly are trading tackle Trent Brown to the New England Patriots, and veteran guards Gabe Jackson and Richie Incognito reportedly will be released by Las Vegas.

The elder Long starred as a defensive end for the Oakland and Los Angeles Raiders from 1981 through 1993. He was named to two All-Pro team and selected to the Pro Bowl eight times. In 2000, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

It's not a certainty that the younger Long will join the team his father played, but the nostalgic tug will be there when he meets with owner Mark Davis, general manager Mike Mayock and coach Jon Gruden on Monday.
