Jake Long working out for Bears Thursday
Although some have mistaken them for siblings at various points during their careers, tackle Jake Long and guard Kyle Long aren’t brothers.
They could be playing together in 2016, however. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Jake Long will spend part of Thursday working out for the Bears, who employ Kyle Long as their right guard.
Jake Long played four games for the Falcons last season after signing with them after the start of the regular season. Long didn’t start any of those games, but was a longtime starter at left tackle for the Dolphins, who drafted him first overall in 2008, and the Rams until that point.
Long tore his ACL in both the 2013 and 2014 seasons, however, and hasn’t generated much interest on the market this offseason. The Bears signed Bobby Massie as a free agent to play right tackle and have Charles Leno working with the first team at left tackle after he finished last season as the starter at that spot.
