EAGLES CHRIS LONG ON ANTHEM POLICY

WHY THE EAGLES ARE LUCKY TO HAVE D-LINEMAN CHRIS LONG!

By Jack Ryan

Eagle newbie Chris Long has been in the NFL 10 years and has had 58 1/2 sacks in his career as a D-lineman — including last season for the Super champ New England Pats:

“I really love this group of [Eagles]. Being a vet, once you get to your 10th year, you cross into a different stratosphere. When I was a rookie, I really respected those guys who had been around the league that long,” Long said. “The older you get, the harder it is to stay in the league. It’s a young man’s game. Every time you step on the field as an older guy, I think teams are looking to replace you. Even if you have a good year, they’re looking at you like when is the bottom going to fall out.”
