Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long has told the Eagles he will return for the 2018 season. There were rumors that Long was considering retirement, but the Eagles restructured his contract, guaranteeing him most of his money, which may have convinced him to return. If the newly acquired Michael Bennett is able to play, Long will have to take on a smaller role than he has in the past.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long is reportedly mulling over a "football decision" on whether or not he will return to the team in 2018. The Eagles offered the 33-year-old veteran a raise, but the addition of defensive end Michael Bennett to the team has Long questioning his role. Reading between the lines, it isn't hard to tell that Long is considering retirement. If he does play in 2018, he'd likely mix in on third downs and pass-rush plays as he did last season.
