It didn’t take long for Kyle Long to find employment after coming out of retirement. According to Adam Schefter, Long is headed to Kansas City to protect Patrick Mahomes.
Long retired from football in January 2020 after seven seasons with the Bears. But earlier this month, Long’s brother Chris confirmed he was on the comeback trail, trying to return to football.
The Bears drafted Long in the first round of the 2013 draft. He made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons, but injuries cut his career in Chicago short after that. After missing only one game from 2013-15, he missed 34 games from 2016-19.
