Bears sign offensive tackle Dennis Roland

The Bears added a right tackle with starting experience Thursday, announcing the signing of Dennis Roland to a one-year deal.

The 31-year-old Roland has played in 71 regular season games (30 starts). He has experience both as a tackle and an extra blocker. Roland appeared in five games for Cincinnati a season ago, all as a reserve.

Roland’s most extensive starting experience came in 2009 and 2010, when he made nine starts apiece at right tackle.

Roland’s signing comes one day after Bears reserve tackle Eben Britton suffered a hamstring injury.

In a corresponding roster move Thursday, the Bears waived undrafted rookie free agent tackle Cody Booth.

    I wish my team had a great GM like the bears! Just look at all the underwhelming street players they have signed this off season. I’m calling for at least 5 wins!

    Solid depth move, not sure he sticks once Britton comes back.

    Coming from a Bengals fan good luck with Roland. He is average at best. I am glad we finally decided to give him his walking papers this year. WHO DEY!!!

    Good move to upgrade over a rookie free agent, but likely just camp muscle while Britton nurses his hammy. Bear Down!

    Coming from a Bengals fan, he’s a good back up and I’m sure that’s why they got him.

    I’m not sure who Carini is however I believe Gabe Carimi is selling life insurance in Nebraska or something.
