What Happened to Howie Long After Surgery?
Howie Long had knee surgery in 1986.
As one of the best NFL talents at the time, the defensive end’s game was affected after the surgery. However, he played for another 7 seasons before he retired in 1993 as a Raiders legend.
Following his retirement, Long pursued a career in acting and starred in a couple of movies as well. And finally, he was able to stabilize his post-playing career in TV analysis and journalism.
Howie Long will always be one of my favorite NFL personalities/former players. I had no idea until a few years ago he was a pallbearer at Ryan White’s funeral (Elton John and Phil Donahue were as well). Long’s sons have been solid guys off the field as well. Solid family. pic.twitter.com/GtvnZ6oK6Y
