Chicago Bears Agree to Terms With OL Rob Turner

The Bears made an addition to their offensive line corps by signing veteran Rob Turner.

The Bears suffered quite a few injuries to their offensive line over camp and the first preseason game, so between Kyle Long's viral infection keeping him out, Jordan Mills' occasional balky foot and walking boot, Eben Britton's injury and Brian de la Puente's knee, the Bears are adding offensive lineman Rob Turner to the roster, according to his agency.

Turner has played center and guard, and is also listed at tackle, so he offers versatility; he played five years for the Jets. In 2012 he started all 16 games for the St. Louis Rams, and last year started six games with the Titans before having his season ended by a shoulder injury.

At this point, Turner's not a big addition, but a seven-year veteran that can play all three positions can be a valuable backup if he makes the team.
