Chicago Bears re-sign offensive tackle Jonathan Scott

USA TODAY Sports

The busy Chicago Bears make another acquisition today, by bringing back offensive tackle Jonathan Scott.

The right tackle position will have quite a bit of competition this off season for the Chicago Bears, as they agree today to a one year deal to bring back Jonathan Scott.

Scott will compete with former #1 draft pick Gabe Carimi, and former left tackle J'Marcus Webb to see who will start opposite new left tackle Jermon Bushrod. There were mixed reviews about Scott's performance last year, but he did appear in twelve games, with seven starts.

Here's John "Moon" Mullin's take on the signing;


This could also allow the Bears to take a longer look at Carimi inside at guard. After being forced to play the position for the first time last year, he adequately handled the move, and gives the new coaching staff some film to look at.

Here's a time line of the Bears free agency thus far:

The Bears have been busy since free agency started March 12, signing left tackle Jermon Bushrod (March 12), tight end Martellus Bennett (March 12), defensive end Turk McBride (March 20), tight end Steve Maneri (March 21), linebacker D.J. Williams (March 22), safety Tom Zbikowski (March 23) and linebacker James Anderson (March 24) before coming to terms with Scott.

Let us know what you think about the Scott signing, and about all of Phil Emery's moves so far.
