Chris Long Signs One-Year Deal With Eagles

Mar 28, 2017 12:41 PM

Chris Long has signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Long announced before the start of free agency that he wouldn't be returning to the New England Patriots.

Long totaled 35 tackles and four sacks in the regular season. In Super Bowl LI, he made the most of his 15 defensive snaps played, drawing a critical holding penalty that helped push the Falcons out of field goal range when they had been in position to kick a field goal late and possibly increase their lead to 11 points.
