Defensive end Chris Long, who played on the Patriots’ Super Bowl LI title team, announced his retirement Saturday.
“I can honestly say I put my soul into every minute” of an 11-year career, Long tweeted.
Long, 34, spent one season in Foxborough. He played for the then-St. Louis Rams for most of his career, went to the Patriots, and ended his career with a two-year stint with the Eagles.
Long is the son of Howie Long, the Pro Football Hall of Famer who was raised in Charlestown and starred at Milford High School.
