As Kyle Long prepares to embark on his comeback, he’ll first visit the team for which his father, Howie, became a Hall of Famer.

Kyle Long will visit the Raiders, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. And possibly to help put the squeeze on the Raiders to get something done, Long’s next step will be Kansas City.

A first-round pick of the Bears in 2013, Long became a three-time Pro Bowler in his first three seasons as a guard and a tackle. He signed a long-term deal in 2016, and then had injury issues that limited him to eight games that year, 10 in 2017, eight in 2018, and four in 2019. He retired after the 2019 season.

Kyle and his brother Chris were both first-round picks. Chris became the NFL’s Man of the Year; he retired after the 2018 season.

Howie, a second-round pick in 1981, became an eight-time Pro Bowler, a three-time first-team All-Pro, the 1985 defensive player of the year, and a Hall of Famer in 2000.

  1. Not gonna lie… it would be great to see a Raider jersey with the name Long on the back of it again.

  2. Get it done Mayock! We have to solidify the right side of the O-line now.

    One Nation, Raider Nation!

  3. Such a tough decision… Overhyped team that was good when your dad played, who has goals of getting to 8-8, or a chance at a SB for the foreseeable future?

  4. If the Bears would have had 5 of him (in his prime) in front of Jay Cutler they just might have made it to the Superbowl. He’s a shell of that player now but seems like a good dude and I wish him the best in his comeback.
