Bears Sign Saints Free Agent Brian de la Puente

CHICAGO, Ill. (WGNO) - New Orleans Saints center Brian de la Puente agreed to a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears Sunday.

The contract is for the minimum-salary benefit with the understanding that De la Puente is coming to play behind starter Roberto Garza, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The soon-to-be 29 year 0ld faced a difficult free-agent market, but picked a situation in which an opportunity could present itself in 2015.

Garza, who is 35, is also on a one-year contract and eventually the club will replace him.
