The Bears added depth to their offensive line by agreeing to a one-year contract with lineman Manny Ramirez, a source told the Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs.
Ramirez is just another in a growing list of players re-joining head coach John Fox. Ramirez played under Fox and offensive line coach Dave Magazu for four seasons with the Denver Broncos. Ramirez played one season for the Detroit Lions a year ago.
The Bears are looking to create competition along the offensive line, particularly at center, where rookie Hroniss Grasu struggled in his first season as a pro in 2015. Ramirez also can play guard.
