The Bears will sign free agent offensive lineman Bobby Massie, according to multiple reports. The 6-foot-6, 316-pound tackle spent the first four seasons of his career with the Arizona Cardinals.
The addition of Massie likely means that Kyle Long will move back to right guard with Massie lining up at right tackle, forming a tough, road-grading right side of the offensive line.
The move came with great celebration from Long, who took to Twitter to share his happiness.

When asked to clarify what he meant by those emojis, Long tweeted in response: “Those emojis I posted after we signed Bobby were HALLELUJAH emojis.”
Long was asked by another fan what kind of guy Massie was, to which Long responded, “Big strong mean country haha.”
The Bears have now addressed the linebacker position and offensive line so far in free agency. Expect them to look at defensive line, tight end, and bringing in depth in the secondary sometime this offseason, whether through free agency or the draft.
