Part of the job of being an offensive lineman in the NFL is maintaining a hefty weight. When you have the job of stopping some of the biggest humans on earth, you're gonna need size on your side.

However, many times when offensive lineman retire, they do what they can to try and drop down to a more healthy weight, and that's exactly what former Chicago Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long has accomplished following his recent retirement.

Long was always one of the more athletic linemen in the league, but in his retirement he has taken that to a whole new level, showing off his new look on his Instagram account.

And given the amount of time he has been retired for, you have to be impressed by his progress. Good to see he hasn't lost any of his motivation now that he doesn't have any professional football responsibilities.
