Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jake Long is set to hit the open market once NFL free agency begins and he is expected to generate a lot of interest. As the top available tackle on the market, teams will be fighting for Long’s services and one of those teams involved in the talks could be a NFC contender.
During an appearance on ESPN on Saturday, analyst John Clayton suggested that Long ”could go to Chicago.”
It would be a great addition for the Bears, who need offensive line help and it would be a move that would surely excite quarterback Jay Cutler.
It is a move that would make perfect sense for both sides. The Bears would get the franchise tackle they are looking for, while Long would get to play on one of the better teams in the league and have a shot at making the playoffs.
What do you think of the potential match? Should Chicago target Long on the free agent market?
