Over the course of his 11-year NFL career, defensive lineman Chris Long spent just two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. Long spent the tail-end of his career with the franchise but has said that he deeply connects with the Eagles.

The Eagles won their first-ever Super Bowl back in 2018 with Long, a reason that surely made his short stay with them memorable.

In an episode of his Green Light Podcast, Chris Long was chatting with his father about the topic of retirement.

“Honestly I would've retired a Ram, but they moved to L.A. I'm not an L.A. Ram. I'm a St. Louis Ram, and to be honest, the team that I most associate with now? Boston, I was there for a year, I loved a lot about that, but I didn't live in the city, I wasn't a big part of the community there. Fans were super supportive. But I didn't get to know them the way I knew them in Philly. And a lot of that was geography, putting my head down, I was there for one reason. In Philly, it was like the city just got a hold of me. So if I ever do the official retirement, something, I'll probably do it as an Eagle.”

The 35-year old was drafted by the St. Louis Rams back in 2008 and spent the majority of his career with the team. It was definitely quality over quantity for Long as he clearly liked his time with the Eagles more. Long had 11.5 sacks in his two seasons with the Eagles, plus a few clutch moments in the team's Super Bowl run.
