Just one day after the Green Bay Packers released him, three-time Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton agreed to a three-year deal with the Chicago Bears.
Sitton’s deal is reportedly worth $21.5-million over three years, including a $10 million signing bonus.
The 30-year old Sitton was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, but the Packers were looking to likely move on after this season. Now, the Packers are moving on without Sitton and saving $6.55 million, giving them more salary cap space to try to resign other players that are set to become free agents after the season.
Starters T.J. Lang, J.C. Tretter and David Bakhtiari are all set to become free agents at the end of the season.
