Bears right guard Kyle Long has agreed to a restructured contract with Chicago that will ensure he's on the squad this upcoming season, reports The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

Long is set to return for a seventh season with the team that drafted him with the No. 20 overall pick in 2013.

Prior to restructuring, Long's deal with the Bears ran through 2021 with cap hits ranging between $8.5 million and $9.6 million. But injuries have limited him to 26 appearances the past three years. Long had signed a four-year, $40 million deal in September of 2016, which had an opt-out after the 2018 season.
