CHRIS LONG AND EAGLES FANS LOVED ONE ANOTHER: HERE’S WHY!

By Annie Ross

Chris Long retired after just two seasons with the Eagles, including the Super Bowl win, and he and Philly had a mutual love affair.

Long was chatting with his father, NFL legend Howie Long, on the latest episode of his Green Light podcast, and the topic of where he’d like to “officially” retire came up during a mailbag segment:

CHRIS: Honestly I would’ve retired a Ram, but they moved to L.A. I’m not an L.A. Ram. I’m a St. Louis Ram, and to be honest, the team that I most associate with now?

“Boston, I was there for a year, I loved a lot about that, but I didn’t live in the city, I wasn’t a big part of the community there. Fans were super supportive. But I didn’t get to know them the way I knew them in Philly. And a lot of that was geography, putting my head down, I was there for one reason.

In Philly, it was like the city just got a hold of me. So if I ever do the official retirement, something, I’ll probably do it as an Eagle.

But then I might just want to go back to St. Louis, pick my favorite dive bar, and retire as a St. Louis Ram.

HOWIE: I felt like you immersed yourself into that city, living downtown, being a part of it.
