The Bears took a look at a veteran offensive lineman as they move toward the start of the 2022 season.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the team worked out Michael Schofield.

Schofield started 12 of the 15 games he played for the Chargers last season. He has made 81 starts overall since entering the league as a 2014 third-round pick of the Broncos.

He has played both guard and tackle during a career that’s also featured a previous three-year stint with the Chargers and a year with the Panthers in 2020.

The Bears drafted four offensive linemen earlier this year, so there should be a fair amount of competition for spots on the line this summer. If Schofield signs, he’ll be in the thick of it.

  1. Gezzzzzzzzzz you’d think the Bears were trying to get better not worse while at Michigan Schofield had the worst feet i’d seen in years plain and simple he was awful .

  2. The Bears are in total rebuild mode. The offensive line is evidence of that. They’ve let quality players walk (the Commanders and Steelers gratefully picked them up, amongst others) and are making due this year with youngsters who’ve yet to prove they can play and journeymen backups. Hence, they are kicking the tires on just about any affordable lineman, hoping to find diamonds in the rough. It may surprisingly work and mesh, that depends on the coaching and determination and skill of the players. More likely, Fields will have to ‘improvise’ a lot (ie. run for his life and make plays off script). This is gonna be a long year for us Bear fans.
