By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to the New York Daily News, the New York Jets are attempting to add offensive lineman help. But the man they are targeting is retired.

The Jets are considering Kyle Long, who retired this off-season. The team has talked to Long about coming out of retirement.

When Long was healthy, he was one of the better offensive lineman in the game. Long is presently a free agent.

The Chicago Bears, his former team, declined his $9.6 million club option for the 2020 season.

Jets GM Joe Douglas has done this before. Last season, he convinced Ryan Kalil to come out of retirement to play for the team.

Long; however, may be a different story. He battled a hip injury that hampered his 2019 season. Due to injuries, he has not played an entire season in the last four seasons.

Despite not playing an entire season, Long made three Pro Bowls in the last four season. In fact, two seasons he made the Pro Bowl at different positions.

Long had played at tackle and guard with the Bears. He was their 20th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

He is the son of Hall of Famer Howie Long. He is also the brother of Chris Long, who retired from the NFL following the 2018 season.
