With offensive tackle John Tait contemplating his retirement, the Chicago Bears moved quickly in the first hours of free agency and reached a four-year, $14 million deal with Carolina Panthers offensive tackle Frank Omiyale, according to a source.

In his four years in the NFL, Omiyale, 26, has only started one game. He spent two years in Atlanta and two years in Carolina.

The 6-4, 310-pound tackle played 10 games for the Panthers last year.

$3.5 million a year for starting one game? Good grief. If that's the market we're going into, it looks like our only chance at picking up a decent lineman in FA is if one of them is a hopeless drunk and we bribe him off the books with unlimited booze.
