The Chicago Bears are just two days away from the official start of training camp. The term “official” is used because it represents the first day of practice after July 26‘s final report date.

And as it turns out, there will be a new veteran added to the mix. Per ESPN’s Field Yates, the Bears signed veteran offensive lineman Michael Schofield on Monday after the former third-round pick worked out for the team the day before.

Schofield started 12 games at right guard for the Los Angeles Chargers, so it’s very likely he will compete along the Bears interior offensive line. The Bears appear to have one of the guard positions and the center position set, but head coach Matt Eberflus has been adamant that he will play the best front five combination he can find.

Whether or not Schofield is apart of that combination remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: he’ll be in the mix moving forward.

The move puts the Bears roster at 91 players, so someone will have to be released or waived in the near future. However, the team has Jaquan Brisker listed on the roster and he has yet to sign his rookie deal, so it’s unclear as to when the eventual roster move will be made.
