Free-agent OT Orlando Pace is meeting with the Chicago Bears on Monday, reports NFL.com’s Steve Wyche. The only other team Pace has met with since being cut by the St. Louis Rams is the Baltimore Ravens.
Pace hit the open market earlier this month after being released by the Rams in a move that saved St. Louis $6 million in cap space.
After placing John Tait on the reserve/retired list and losing free agent John St. Clair to the Browns, the Bears are looking for depth at offensive tackle. They signed offensive tackle Kevin Shaffer to a three-year deal last week to boost their depth on the line.
Chris Williams, the team’s first-round pick in 2008, saw little action as a rookie, but is expected to play a bigger role next season.
