Coach Lovie Smith is expected to be back with the Bears, but seven-time Pro Bowl tackle Orlando Pace is less certain about his future.
“I have to reevaluate everything and take everything into account and see what works for me,” Pace said to the Chicago Sun-Times Monday.
Pace may not have much choice in the matter. He was benched for the final five games of the season and is due $3.75 million next season.
Unless he takes a big pay cut to stay, Pace’s storied career could end by getting released.
