SB Nation's Syracuse community celebrates:

On paper, Rob Long should be a gimme for an NFL tryout. But nothing about Rob's life has been a gimme since he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. That tumor is now gone and Rob can concentrate the thing he's been wanting to do for as long as he can remember...kick on Sundays.

Our real and sincere congratulations to Rob, and best wishes for a long career in the league.
