Right before the free agency period hits in the National Football League, the Chicago Bears were able to make a big move as they’ll be keeping one of their long-time members, center Roberto Garza, for at least another year as they two parties have signed a deal, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Garza has been one of the ironmen for the Bears over the better part of the last decade. He’s started all but two games in the last eight seasons and has undoubtedly been the anchor for the entire Chicago offensive line as they continually flirt with a return trip to the Super Bowl. Last season, they were just ousted in the final week of the regular season by the rival Green Bay Packers.
At 34-years-old, Garza’s career in the NFL is quickly winding down, but as Pro Football Talk reminds us, head coach Marc Trestman stated a while ago that he believes Garza should finish his career in the Windy City.
This signing was a huge step closer to making that a reality.
