Former Bears lineman signs with Vikings

Former Bears lineman signs with Vikings

Will Sutton doesn't have to move far.

The former Bears defensive lineman is staying in the NFC North after signing with the Minnesota Vikings this week:

Sutton — the former third-round pick (82nd overall) in 2014 — was released by the Bears earlier this month.

The 25-year-old played in 36 games over his Bears career, including 18 starts. He appeared in just eight contests in 2017 (six starts).

Sutton was a bit out of place when the Bears moved from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 with the hiring of head coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio prior to the 2015 season.

Sutton has never recorded a sack in his career, racking up 39 total tackles — including four for a loss — and seven passes deflected.

The Bears will get their first look at Sutton in a Vikings uniform in Week 5 when they host Minnesota on Monday Night Football.
