Offensive lineman Michael Schofield’s visit with the Bears apparently went well.

According to multiple reports, Schofield is signing with the NFC North squad. Schofield visited with and worked out for the team over the weekend.

Schofield was a Broncos third-round pick in 2014 and started 29 games for Denver before moving on to the Chargers. He spent three seasons with the team, jumped to the Panthers in 2020 and then returned to the Chargers to make 12 starts last year.

Schofield has played guard and tackle during his NFL career. The Bears have rookie Braxton Jones at tackle along with Teven Jenkins and Larry Borom, and they experimented with different combos of those three players along with left guard Cody Whitehair and right guard Sam Mustipher this spring.

  1. Is this a signing that has me excited; no. Might this be an upgrade for the Bears; yes. If this kid provides mediocre, replacement-level play, it will be an upgrade for the Bears offensive line. I’ve little hope for good play from the Bears this year, it’s a rebuild year. I only hope the O-line doesn’t get Fields killed, literally.

  2. Wrong side of 30 (31) but Jason Peters came in at 39-40 and was one of the better OL we’ve had.

    Top half of OL play, according to PFF ranking, competition is good. Beats trying out 8 kickers, this is WAY more important.
