Long is fresh off of a Super Bowl win with the Patriots and will bring a veteran presence to Philadelphia's defensive front. He recorded 35 combined tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble in 2016. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Long's deal is one year in length, so he will need to show he can still make plays at the age of 32 if he wishes to secure a future with the Eagles beyond this coming season.
Long, who turns 32 later this month, logged 35 tackles and four sacks in 16 games in his first and final season with New England. By the end of the Patriots' Super Bowl run, Long was utilized as a situational pass-rusher and the veteran defensive end will now look to catch on elsewhere this offseason in the hopes of seeing an expanded role in 2017.
