The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with veteran center, Roberto Garza over a one year deal.

Garza, 34 was expected to try free agency but will now stay at Soldier Field for his 10th season. The offensive lineman has played in all 16 regular season games for the Bears in the past eight seasons and has proven himself as a reliable asset to the NFC North team.

The former Texas A&M-Kingsville player was drafted in the fourth round of the 2001 draft by the Atlanta Falcons and played there for three seasons before signing with the Bears in free agency.

He has played in a number of positions across the offensive line but has been predominately a center for the past three campaigns.

Garza, who is of hispanic descent has been an influential member of the hispanic NFL community. He appeared on the spanish language version of Madden 09 and served as a sideline reporter during the last Super Bowl for Fox deportes.
