  • Eagles Chris Long announces retirement after 11 NFL seasons

The Eagles defensive end took to social media to announce his retirement on Saturday. Eleven years and I can honestly say I put my soul into every minute of it. I've seen them both and I appreciate the perspective.

"Cheers", he wrote coupled with a picture of a red Solo cup toasting what was a very good career for someone considered to be a Hall of Fame-level person by many around the NFL.

Long earned the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award for his community service work. "Gratitude and love to those who lifted me up".

Long would ultimately decide not to re-sign with the Patriots, instead joining the Philadelphia Eagles ahead of the 2017 season.

He established the Chris Long Foundation in 2015 to impact communities nationally and internationally through programs focusing on clean water, military appreciation, and youth education. He also was a key contributor in the Eagles' Super Bowl LII victory over the New England Patriots a year after winning his first Super Bowl as a member of the Patriots.

After a very successful National Football League career Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long has chose to hang up his cleats.

Factor in the pre-draft Michael Bennett trade to the New England Patriots and the Eagles have somehow lost their top two reserves from the 2018 season in a matter of weeks.

"He was also named the 2018 Walton Payton NFL Man of the Year Award".

In 2017 he donated his entire base salary, worth $1 million, to charities which promote educational equality in the three cities where he spent his career - St. Louis, Philadelphia and Boston.

The next year, as a Philadelphia Eagle, he captured a second straight Super Bowl, this time beating the Patriots.

"There's no question that his work ethic combined with his unique talent made him into one of the greatest of this era's professional athletes".
