Tackle Pace agrees with Bears
On the same day the Chicago Bears added a new quarterback, they got someone to protect him.
The Bears have agreed to a three-year deal, $15 million deal with free agent Orlando Pace, a source told ESPN.com's John Clayton. His first-year payout, according to the source, is $6.1 million.
ESPN's Michael Smith first reported the signing.
From the bottom of the article:
Pace had an offer from the Philadelphia Eagles, but he decided to sign with the Bears on the day Cutler was acquired in a trade from the Broncos.

While he has battled injuries the past few seasons, he is 33. If he can stay healthy, I imagine he would be a serviceable to good tackle. Do you think it would be worth it had the Eagles got him for the same price the Bears paid?
