Which Chicago Bears player had the longest tenure? Patrick Scales wins.

After releasing Eddie Jackson and Cody Whitehair in a salary space move on Friday, the Bears released two of their longest-serving players.

Whitehair was drafted by Ryan Pace in the 2016 NFL second round. Jackson was picked by the Bears in the fourth round in 2017. Whitehair and Jackson have been with the Bears for seven and six years, respectively. The team's longest-serving Bear?

Long-snapper Patrick Scales has been with the Bears since 2015, before Whitehair and Jackson. On Nov. 28, 2015, Scales joined the Bears. Over eight years and two months with the team.

Scales played in multiple Bears eras. He's had two general managers (Ryan Pace, Ryan Poles), three head coaches (John Fox, Matt Nagy, Matt Eberflus), and three special teams coordinators.

He may play with his 15th quarterback if the Bears trade Justin Fields this offseason. He played alongside Jay Cutler, Jimmy Clausen, Matt Barkley, Brian Hoyer, Mike Glennon, Mitch Trubisky, Chase Daniel, Nick Foles, Andy Dalton, Fields, Trevor Siemian, Nathan Peterman, Tyson Bagent, and maybe Caleb Williams. Drake Maye? Jayden Daniels? To be seen.

Who are the Bears' longest-serving players after Scales? Simply return to the 2020 NFL draft class

The Bears drafted Cole Kmet, Jaylon Johnson, and Darnell Mooney in the second, second, and fifth rounds, respectively. They're the longest-serving Bears following Scales' overwhelming win

Kmet signed a $50 million, four-year contract with the Bears last summer. Johnson's rookie deal expired, therefore the Bears are anticipated to activate their franchise tag. After a disappointing season, the Bears may fire Mooney.
