On the same day the Chicago Bears added a new quarterback, they got someone to protect him.

The Bears have agreed to a three-year deal, $15 million deal with free agent Orlando Pace, a source told ESPN.com's John Clayton. His first-year payout, according to the source, is $6.1 million.

ESPN's Michael Smith first reported the signing.

Moments after acquiring quarterback Jay Cutler from the Denver Broncos, the Bears reached an agreement to sign former Rams left tackle Pace.

Pace will reunite with Lovie Smith, who was the defensive coordinator for the Rams when Pace was considered one of the best left tackles in football.

Well, yeah because Pace has done such a good job keeping Bulger clean over the last couple of years right?

They don't have much of a choice here really. They won't be able to find a good tackle in the draft for the next two years most likely so they'll have to upgrade a lot of holes through free agency.

If Pace can't block at least he can teach Chris Williams who was drafted by the Bears last year.
