Bears cut Roberto Garza, sign Will Montgomery

The Chicago Bears cut veteran center Roberto Garza and signed former Denver Broncos center Will Montgomery to a one-year contract as his replacement. Garza played for the Bears for 10 seasons. Four months ago, Garza signed a one-year contract extension. "We have a great deal of respect for what Roberto has brought to the Bears over the last 10 years," general manager Ryan Pace said in a statement. "He has been a great player, teammate and leader. We wish Roberto and his family the very best as he continues his career." Garza, a 14-year veteran, started 175 of 205 career games, with 144 starts for the Bears. He missed four games last season due to an ankle injury. Montgomery has played for the Broncos, Washington Redskins, New York Jets and Carolina Panthers. He entered the NFL in 2006 as a seventh-round draft pick for the Carolina Panthers where he played for Bears coach John Fox, who also coached him in Denver.
