NFL Network's Michael Silver reported Wednesday that the Eagles pass-rusher is mulling an offer from the team that would up his salary from $1 million in base pay to nearly $4 million in guaranteed loot, according to a source.
The new deal would extend Long through 2019, but the 32-year-old defensive end has yet to accept the revised pact as he decides whether or not to keep playing.
Money is not the issue. Long donated his first six game checks from last season to provide a pair of scholarships for students in Charlottesville, Virginia. He used his final 10 game payouts to launch his Pledge 10 for Tomorrow campaign.
