After signing Nicholas Morrow for the defense, the Chicago Bears flipped their focus to the offense on Tuesday night. Ryan Poles and the Bears have agreed to terms with former Packers offensive lineman Lucas Patrick.

Patrick comes on a very fair deal. It is two years for $8 million, with $4 million guaranteed.

Lucas Patrick has played his entire career in Green Bay. He started in 13 games last year, but appeared in all 17 games. It is a great sign that he has longevity, unlike last year's Bears offensive line that was always riddled with injuries.

Ryan Poles has been very concentrated adding in areas of weakness. Let's see where he goes next.
