Sports Mockery first reported that the Bears are bringing in free agent C Manny Ramirez for a visit on Tuesday.
- Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune has confirmed the report.
This is the first reported interest in Ramirez since the free agent market opened nearly four weeks ago.
Ramirez, 33, was drafted by the Lions in the fourth-round of the 2007 draft. He spent four years in Detroit before joining the Broncos as an unrestricted free agent in 2012.
However, he was later traded back to the Lions as part of the Broncos moving up in the draft for Shane Ray last year.
In 2015, Ramirez appeared in all 16 games for Detroit, and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 4 center out of 39 qualifying players.
