    Kyle Long gave his garbage man a pretty sweet reward for finding and returning his wallet.

    The Bears offensive lineman said in a tweet that the Lake Forest sanitation worker returned his wallet after finding it at the bottom of his drive way.

    What was the worker’s reward? “He will now be attending the game this weekend %BOOM," Long tweeted Tuesday.

    He also tweeted the man’s name, Dan Hughes, and added that, “He’s the man.”

    In September, Long made headlines for another show of generosity off-field. Before a game in Seattle, he posed in a teen’s senior photos.
