    Rog. Kyle talked about it in an interview this week, and in an interview w/Howie he also stated Kyle had talked about it.

    Wanting to/talking about it doesn't mean he's going to do it THIS year.

    That would be awesome! :)

    How much do you think Chris Long would be asking to come to Chicago?

    It would be nice but Chris Long would cost us a lot unless he gives "family" discount and I don't think so. I'm not sure of how good Chris Long is I've an impression of him being a really good DE. Would be nice if we can replace Peppers next season with C.Long and just having to draft DT.

    Chris Long is 28 years old now. Assuming he doesn't get released early, he will be 32 years old when he becomes a free agent. We probably wouldn't want him at that point, and if we did, he'll be at the point in his career where we didn't have to roll out the red carpet and recruit him to get him here. Peppers is 33/34 this season, had a better prime than Chris, and we see where he is in his career now.

    Long may be 28, but does not have a lot of mileage.

    Would we even have the $$$$ for Chris Long that is the question.
