Chris Long is considering both retirement and a return to the Philadelphia Eagles for another season.

The defensive end also pondered retirement after the 2017 season.

"At the end of the day, the itch is still here, I still love playing on Sunday," Long said. "But as far as what happens, I'm literally just kind of sitting back and seeing what the Eagles do and who they bring in or don't bring in and how deep that room gets. But I'd still love to play. But at the end of the day at 33, I could go either way."

Long is entering the final season of his contract, due to make a $3.5 million salary after tallying 6.5 sacks with 23 tackles and a pair of forced fumbles.
