Kyle Long un-retires and joins the Kansas City Chiefs

The former long-time guard, Kyle Long, who retired before the 2020 season, is back in the NFL. He is joining the Kansas City Chiefs who are making their second deal for an offensive lineman this offseason.

Long had a visit with the Raiders first, but after meeting with the Chiefs, decided that Kansas City would be his new home. Long is a very versatile lineman who has played guard most of his career but has the ability to play RT in a pinch.

The addition is more good news for Patrick Mahomes and his fantasy value. Hopefully, Kyle Long is able to help keep Mahomes cleaner in the pocket than what we saw from the Chiefs O-line in 2020.

It could also be good for Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who is going to be running behind the seasoned guard.
