He has left Green Bay, but he’s not leaving the NFC North.
Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton has signed a three-year deal with the Bears, according to Alex Marvez of Sporting News.
Sitton became a surprise cut on Saturday by the Packers, who reportedly were trying to trade him not long before the deadline for getting the roster to 53 players. He reportedly was released because he wasn’t happy with the team’s decision to extend a contract that was due to expire after the coming season.
In Chicago, Sitton will likely become the starting left guard, supplanting second-round rookie Cody Whitehair.
Sitton will return to Green Bay on Thursday, October 20, when the Packers host the Bears on a Thursday night.
