According to La Canfora, there’s “ample” interest in Bushrod, even after he underwent shoulder surgery.
It’s worth mentioning that signing Bushrod to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.
Bushrod, 31, was entering the fourth year of his five-year, $35.965 million contract that included $22.465 million guaranteed when the Bears released him a move that freed up $4.3 million in available cap space.
He’s now an unrestricted free agent in a limited market for offensive tackles.
In 2015, Bushrod appeared in 12 games for the Bears. However, he was limited to playing just 238 total snaps this past season.
