Josh Sitton: Chicago declines team option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears declined Sitton's $8 million team option for the 2018 season on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network

The $8 million salary was more than reasonable for Sitton, who graded out as the sixth-best guard in the NFL among qualifiers last season, per Pro Football Focus. The Bears' decision to cut the 31-year-old was likely motivated by a desire to get younger along the offensive line while freeing up cap space to address other positions of need. Given that he's still playing at a high level, Sitton shouldn't have trouble garnering a multi-year commitment from another team when he becomes a free agent in March.

Bears' Josh Sitton: Uncertain to remain in Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sitton isn't certain to remain with the Bears in 2018, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sitton fared well in both pass protection and run blocking in 2017, ultimately grading out as Pro Football Focus' sixth-ranked offensive guard. However, he has a team option in his contract that would allow the Bears to save $8 million if they release him prior to Feb. 9. With a new head coach coming to Chicago, it wouldn't be surprising if the Bears moved on from the pricey 32-year-old.

Bears' Josh Sitton: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sitton (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Sitton hasn't played nor practiced since suffering his ankle injury two weeks ago, and his absence comes as no surprise. Look for Hroniss Grasu or Bradley Sowell to start in Sitton's place.

Bears' Josh Sitton: Doubtful for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sitton (ankle) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Vikings, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN reports.

Sitton injured his ankle in Week 15 and hasn't played nor practiced since. If he ultimately isn't cleared to play, the veteran will finish 2017 having had a fine season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' sixth-highest ranked offensive guard.

Bears' Josh Sitton: Sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sitton (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.

The 31-year-old was unable to practice in any capacity this week after injuring his ankle in the Week 15 loss to the Lions. With Sitton and fellow starting guard Tom Compton (concussion) sidelined, Cody Whitehair, Hroniss Grasu and Bradley Sowell will likely serve as the Bears' starting interior linemen.
