Howard Matthew Moses “Howie” Long is an ex-American National Football League player as well as an actor who was born on the 6th January 1960 (his current age is 56 years old). He is an American by nationality and belongs to white ethnicity. He is a multi-talented person with a diverse background in his career.
Going back to the place he was born, he was born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, the USA to a middle-class family. Attending the Milford High School as a child, he enjoyed playing football from a young age and used his physique and pace to get the better of his opponents.
When he played, he enjoyed playing in a defensive role and after joining Villanova University and played for his college in the top flight winning many prestigious competitions. His debut in his NFL career was in 1981 with Oakland Raiders and played at the top level for ten years with four different teams.
At 57, charming and famous:
Howie is not only great but looks amazing! He is a tall man and has proper height, which is about a 196 cm. That is about 6 feet and 5 inches tall. He has also has got the good muscular body to match along with his height. Being a player, he has to have a physique and along with it, the fitness and stamina to survive in a game.
Even at this age, he is a regular member of the gym; he loves working out on a regular basis and is also very conscious about his health factors, eating habits and resting hours. He doesn’t consume any unhealthy items and gives proper time into resting and sleeping. His last recorded weight was 104 kg, which is because of his long time gap from the game but still suits someone of his built.
He has got many shirtless pictures on the media, and you can see them also on his Instagram account. He doesn’t seem to have a tattoo on his body nor any piercings.
The married life of Howie:
Howie seems to be all settled down in his life. He is a happily married man as well as a father of 3 kids, and there is not much to talk about his dating list or affairs with other girlfriends. He has been with his wife Diane Addonizio since 1982 and their very long and strong marital life has kept them both very happy.
Talking about the family members, their first child was Christopher Howard who was born in 1985, followed by their second son Kyle Howard, who was born in 1989. Their third kid is also a son named Matthew Howard, who was born in 1990 and all three of them have successfully completed their college studies and are involved in national-level football.
We can proudly say that the couple is likely to have a great future ahead. He and his wife are in a jubilant bond, and a divorce is very unlikely to commence in the near future. Any false rumor regarding Howie being sexually gay has no truth in it.
Having played in the NFL and Super Bowls, he has won many prestigious awards including the Defensive Lineman of the Year in 1985, Seagrams’ Seven Crown NFL Defensive Player of the year, Miller Lite NFL Defensive Lineman of the Year in 1986 and was also selected for the All-Madden teams in 1984 as well as in 1994.

With a lot of fame and fan following both in and out of the pitch, his stardom as a movie star has taken his legacy beyond the United States.
A proud father!
Howie cheered for Chris. Chris made it to his first Super Bowl. Howie is, of course, one proud father as anyone would expect him to be.
He has always been together with his son as a supporting pillar. He was there even when Chris took a huge pay cut to sign with the Patriots. He could have made a lot of money otherwise, but many times, choices are made for rewards more meaningful than money.
Chris even got the chance to relay on the advice that he received from Howie on the Super Bowl experience. After nine seasons, he finally made it to the Super Bowl which was not much of a wait for Howie.
Some extra to end with:
His legacy from the game expanded into movies and he was seen on the bigger screen as he played roles in TV commercials, movies as well as some TV shows like: 3000 Miles to Graceland (2001), King of the Hill (1997), The Highwayman (1987), 30 for 30 (2009), America’s Game: The Superbowl Champions (2006), ESPN Sports Century (1999) and plenty more.
