Bears, Kyle Long agree to deal

Posted: Updated:
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Associated Press) -

The Chicago Bears and first-round draft pick Kyle Long agreed to a 4-year contract Friday.

The deal includes a fifth-year option. It also puts all the Bears' picks under contract.

A 6-foot-6, 313-pound guard from Oregon, Long was taken with the 20th pick as the Bears try to beef up a line that ranked among the worst in recent years and give Jay Cutler the protection he needs.

Chicago also has added Pro Bowl left tackle Jermon Bushrod from New Orleans and guard Matt Slauson from the New York Jets this offseason.

Long is the son of former Raiders star Howie Long and brother of St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long.
