Well, that didn’t take long. Josh Sitton wasn’t on the street 24 hours before reports surfaced that he was visiting the rival Bears.
This would be nice turnabout for the Bears, who have often released players such as defensive end Julius Peppers only to see the Packers burn the team by turning around and signing them quickly to reasonable contracts.
Most reports are assuming that Sitton would play left guard, moving rookie Cody Whitehair to center. But Whitehair struggled in his only game at center during the preseason whereas he’s been solid at guard. Sitton has worked out with the Packers at center in practice and he’s said that he would be comfortable playing the position if needed. The Bears would be far better one the whole keeping Whitehair developing at guard and replacing Ted Larsen, who is really a backup quality lineman.
