Report: Bears Could Pursue Vikings’ Tackle Loadholt

(CBS) NFL free agency officially begins Tuesday afternoon, and the rumors are beginning to swirl.

According to a report from the Tribune, the Bears could pursue Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt, if the veteran offensive lineman makes it to free agency.

The Tribune cites an NFL source who said the Bears are “hot on Loadholt.”

A 2009 second-round draft pick, Loadholt has started 63 of 64 games at right tackles for Minnesota.

The Tribune’s Brad Biggs speculates the price for the 6-foot-8, 343-pound Loadholt could reach nearly $6 million per season.
