Bobby Massie says he and Kyle Long will be a "force to be reckoned with"

The Chicago Bears signed Bobby Massie on the first day of free agency, March 9th, to play right tackle during the 2016 season. The 26 year old Massie signed a three year contract, so hopefully he'll be able to stabilize the position through 2018. His signing is going to allow Kyle Long to move back inside to right guard where he was most comfortable and most effective during his short three year career.

Don't let the pro bowl appearance at right tackle fool you, Long had a lot of ups and downs during the 2015 season, and while he handled his position switch like a true pro, he's very happy to be making the move back inside.

Massie and Long have both been working out this offseason at the premier offensive line training facility in the world, LeCharles Bentley O-line Performance (OLP). Bentley only played four seasons in the NFL due to a severe knee injury, but he made the Pro Bowl at both guard and center during his time with the New Orleans Saints. These days Bentley runs the world's first invitation only training club for offensive linemen, and as a fan of offensive line play, I really enjoy his numerous shares on social media.

The above video is one of the many Player Spotlight's produced by OLP. It gives some insight to Massie and his journey to the Bears, plus it provides a snapshot of the hard work he's going through to get ready to play alongside his friend Kyle Long.
