After ten years with the Monsters of the Midway, the Chicago Bears announced Thursday that they would be parting ways with center Roberto Garza.

Garza signed a one-year extension less than four months ago under former general manager Phil Emery who was fired just three days later. New coach John Fox and new general manager Ryan Pace informed Garza of their decision to go a different way. Garza tweeted a thank you to the Bears organization shortly after hearing the news.
The center has started in 175 of his 205 career games, playing in 144 games for the Bears.
And Pace said:
We have a great deal of respect for what Roberto has brought to the Bears over the last ten years. He has been a great player, teammate and leader. We wish Roberto and his family the very best as he continues his career.
Meanwhile the Bears have already made a move to replace Garza, signing center Will Montgomery to a one-year contract. He played for the Broncos last year with Fox as his coach.
