The Bears appear to have found the left tackle they were looking for.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Bears are “finishing up a long-term deal” for free agent tackle Jermon Bushrod.

That gives them some much-needed stability on Jay Cutler’s blind side, after the J’Marcus Webb experiment ended poorly.

The deal would reunite Bushrod with new Bears offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer, who coached him with the Saints.
