EAGLES GOOD GUY CHRIS LONG WAS THE STEAL OF LAST FREE AGENCY!

CHRIS LONG, EDGE, NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS TO EAGLES

2016 grade: 69.6

2017 grade: 82.5

Long had the advantage of going from one Super Bowl contender to another, departing from the Patriots after winning a Super Bowl to end the 2016 season, to join the Eagles at the start of their Super Bowl campaign this past season. Playing as part of the deepest and most talented defensive line in the NFL, Long racked up 64 total pressures for the Eagles in the regular season and playoffs. That’s actually one shy of his 65 total pressures registered in New England, but he did it on 53 fewer pass-rushing snaps. That meant his pass-rushing productivity rating of 11.8 in 2017 was better than his 10.8 pass-rushing productivity rating in 2016 with the Patriots. Long’s sack total for both teams stood at five, but he registered 20 quarterback hits with the Eagles, compared with just seven for the Patriots:
