Peers to sign Michael Schofield, a graduate of Sandburg High School

The day before to report to camp, the bears may have found their primary ranger at first.

On Monday, a source confirmed, the team has agreed to sign Michael Schofield, a graduate of Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park, for one year. The Michigan Alum started 12 games with the Chargers last season and has 81 career starts over seven seasons with the Broncos, Chargers and Panthers.

Schofield, who will turn 32 in November, figures to compete with Sam Mustaver in the Right Guard. Mustipher was the starter by default after Dakota Dozier suffered a season-ending knee injury during a mandatory mini camp last month. Zach Thomas, a rookie from San Diego State, also took over reps in the Right Guard.

Pro Football Focus ranked Schofield as the ninth best goalkeeper in the league last season.

Schofield, who first worked with the Bears on Sunday, is married to Olympic hockey player Kendall Quinn Schofield, another Sandburg alumnus.

Veterans report to Halas Hall for training camp Tuesday. The team will hold its first training on Wednesday.
