Chicago Bears re-sign C Roberto Garza

Roberto Garza, formerly a solid guard in his prime, struggled at center in 2010-2012, especially struggling in 2011, when he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 2nd worst ranked center. However, he was actually pretty solid last season, grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 12th ranked center. There’s no guarantee he’ll be nearly that good again in 2014, especially as he heads into his age 35 season. However, this deal isn’t cost prohibitive (1.5 million over 1 year) and the Bears could still very well add competition and/or a successor for him through the draft. It’s a decent deal that allows the Bears to return all 5 starters from a solid offensive line that missed a combined 48 snaps all last season.

Grade: B+
