Chicago Bears may be changing Kyle Long's position again

Playing guard is nothing new to Long, who spent last season with the Bears playing the right guard spot and making eight starts there.

No, Long isn't moving back to right tackle, and the three-time Pro Bowl selection is not going to play left tackle either. After he appeared to be locked in back at his right guard position, he's going to be on the move again this offseason, as the Bears will try him out at left guard this offseason, according to the Chicago Tribune. One source said the move was a topic of discussion shortly after the end of last season.

With Long moving to the left side, this now means Josh Sitton will slide to the right side. When T.J. Lang came into the mix, the Packers saw him as a better option for the right guard spot and moved him there over Sitton.

Left guards are often more athletic than right guards, as they're asked to pull more, and they're also tasked with protecting the blind side for right-handed quarterbacks. This will be the third straight year he has switched positions. Each of the first two seasons of his career came at right guard as well, before he transitioned to right tackle in 2015.

He only played eight games past year before injuring his right ankle that required surgery, but before his ankle issue, he was dealing with a torn labrum to his left shoulder. That is not an indictment on Sitton's play, and it should not be a tough transition for the veteran guard.
