Dude, Long is done and kind of has been done for a while. Love the due but we drafted him at 26. Thats what happens, his career was just short.

I don't think we've seen the last of him in a Bears uni.  He's due $6.9M for 2019 and then his salary jumps to $8M and $8.8M the last two years.

Keep in mind Bears won;t have a 1st or 2nd round pick in the next draft, so I don't see them cutting bait with a highly talented, albeit frequently injured OG unless they have a damn good replacement ready behind him, and besides James Daniels the other guys are just fillers. 

Also, Bobby Massie is a FA after this season and there is speculation that Bears are grooming Rashaad Coward as his replacement.  For those reasons I don't see how they can just cut bait with Long because to me he still has value and will be just 30 years old.
