- According to Adam Schefter, Sitton receives a three-year, $21.75 million contract from the Bears with $10 million guaranteed.
- Brad Biggs mentions that Sitton will play left guard for the Bears with second-round pick Cody Whitehair and Ted Larsen competing for the center job.
Reports said that Sitton could meet with the Saints after he visited with the Bears on Sunday, but sounds like Chicago was able to close the deal and prevent him from leaving.
The Bears now have an impressive tandem of guards with Sitton and fellow Pro Bowler Kyle Long.
Sitton, 30, is a former fourth-round pick of the Packers back in 2008. He was in the final year of his six-year, $34.95 million contract that includes $8.9 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $5.9 million for the 2016 season when the Packers shockingly cut him on Saturday.
In 2015, Sitton appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 6 guard out of 81 qualifying players.
