(CBS) No one will be able to tell Bears guard Kyle Long to get off his own lawn.
In the news last week for being asked to leave a suburban practice field for liability reasons during a workout, Long is in the news today for another reason. He recently bought a big house in Lake Forest on a 1.4-acre lot, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Long purchased the house last month for $1.35 million, the Tribune reported, detailing it as a five-bedroom Georgian-style house. Long is still working in his rookie contract, but he’s already made a name for himself in the league. In his first season, he started all 16 games at guard and made the Pro Bowl.
Long and the Bears open training camp Friday.
