• Bears sign Roberto Garza to one-year contract

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Feb 27, 2014
    The Bears no longer have to worry about losing starting center Roberto Garza to free agency. Center Roberto Garza signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract Thursday, meaning every offensive starter is set to return for coach Marc Trestman’s second season. So what if Chicago Bears center Roberto Garza turns 35 in less than a month? The team absolutely made the right decision in shrugging off age and instead focusing on production in deciding to bring back Garza for what will be his 1oth season in Chicago. The 34-year-old Garza has started every game but two in the last eight seasons, including all 16 games last season. A captain for each of the past three seasons, Garza has started in eight postseason contests, and anchored a revamped offensive line in 2013 that featured four new starters. So bringing back Garza only enriches the continuity along the offensive line, which should be even better in 2014 in Year 2 in Marc Trestman's offensive system. He’s been with the Bears since arriving as a free agent in 2005.
