With free agency less than a week away, the news of Bobbie Massie now likely to hit the free-agent market, he should garner interest from several teams with the lack of starting-caliber tackles on the market. The move saves the Bears $5 million in cap space. The veteran tackle started and played eight games last season, he's been with the Bears since 2016.
Chicago Bears starting right tackle Bobby Massie is a surprise inactive for the team's Week 3 matchup against the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting that Massie is not feeling well, which could explain his surprise status on Monday. The Bears will have to make do without their starting right tackle, which could have an impact on their offensive playmakers if the Chicago offensive line struggles without him.
