LAKE FOREST – The Bears say they have agreed to a one-year contract with center Roberto Garza.

The Bears had expressed a desire to bring him back, and they announced the move on Thursday.

Garza, who turns 35 in March, was the lone holdover on a line that featured four new starters last season. He has appeared in 194 games and made 164 starts over 13 seasons with the Bears and Atlanta Falcons.
