- Adam Caplan of ESPN first reported that the Bears were expected to sign Larsen last night.
Larsen took a few visits to teams such as the Falcons, 49ers and Seahawks since free agency officially opened four weeks ago. However, it appears the Bears wound up being his best option.
It’s worth mentioning that the Bears agreed to terms with OL Manny Ramirez earlier in the day, so they’re clearly focused on bolstering their offensive line depth.
Larsen, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Patriots back in 2010. However, he lasted just a few months in New England before he was waived and later claimed by the Buccaneers.
The Cardinals elected to sign him to a two-year deal back in March of 2014, and he’s currently testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2015, Larsen appeared in 10 games for the Cardinals and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 72 guard out of 81 qualifying players.
