Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that an NFL source has informed him that the Bears are “hot on” OT Phil Loadholt.
Tom Pelissero adds that the Bears are actually offering more than the Vikings who don’t want to pay more than $5 million per year.
The Vikings have said that they would like to re-sign Loadholt and reports from last night indicated that they were still working on a new contract.
Loadholt has been a very solid tackle in past few years, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see a better than expected market for his services.
We have him listed as the No. 17 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
