Bears and first-rounder Kyle Long agree to four-year deal with option
The Chicago Bears and their first-round selection of the 2o13 NFL Draft Kyle Long have agreed to a four-year contract, the team announced on Friday. Long was selected with the 20th overall pick in the draft out of Oregon. Long participated in drills with no pads and said the minicamp has been “awesome,” so far.
Long, the son of NFL defensive end Howie Long and brother to St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long, played left guard for most of his collegiate career at Oregon. Long has been playing right tackle for most of minicamp with the Bears with the hopes of offsetting NFC North rival Ndamukong Suh.
