Kind of like when we signed Muhammad, we knew he wasn't as good but he still improved our receiving corps quite a bit even though he was very overpaid.
I think he would be no worse then John Tait

Tait was solid LT in his time with Bears

So adding Long via FA would be comparable move to when Bears brought in Tait to solidify the T position. Originally T was to play RT for Bears but Qasim Mitchell sucked

Tait moved to LT and Bears brought in Fred Miller

Both were solid T's and gave Bears quality OL play during the mid 00's
