One day after announcing the addition of interior offensive lineman Taylor Boggs, it is being reported that the Chicago Bears are signing offensive tackle Bradley Sowell. He spent last year with the Seattle Seahawks, starting nine of the ten games he played in. He was benched mid-game in Denceber and didn’t get back into the starting lineup.
The 27 year old Sowell originally signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2012, but he ended up cut, and playing in 10 games with the Colts that season. He was with the Arizona Cardinals from 2013-2015, appearing in every game, making 12 starts in 2013.
He has been active on social media, including this Twitter barrage that was captured by our sister site, Field Gulls.
Sowell (6’7”, 309) will join Tom Compton and William Poehls, in trying to win a back up tackle spot behind starters Bobby Massie and Charles Leno Jr.
FYI, the move has been officially been announced by the Bears.

I’ll bet part of Sowell is glad he’ll never have to wear those green unis again.
