Shortly after he signed with the Eagles, Chris Long talked about how he was looking forward to sitting next to Fletcher Cox a lot this season.
I would think you wanna, you wanna always be sitting next to your d-line buddy. I think me and Fletcher will make a lot of plays together, so hopefully, we’re probably going to be in the d-line huddle a lot. You can figure that one out. […] I will always be sitting to the left of Fletch on the bench.
As it turns out, we didn’t have to wait long to see the first glimpse of LONG COX. Behold!

I’m sure it’s only a matter of time until we see LONG SMALLWOOD and LONG JOHNSON as well. And if Long and Cox wanted to get really creative, they’ll find a way to find this happen.
