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.
