According to reports, the Chicago Bears are cutting ties with starting left guard Josh Sitton after two years with the team.
After spending eight years with the Green Bay Packers, Sitton spent the last two years in Chicago, missing three games last season with rib and ankle injuries. The four-time Pro Bowl lineman signed with the Bears after he was released by the Packers before the 2016 season.
