Chester Taylor is a Bear

From PFT:

Chester Taylor will stay in the NFC North.

The former Viking agreed to a four-year, $12.5 million contract with Chicago, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.  $7 million is guaranteed in the first year.

The Bears are just getting their checkbook warmed up, with a deal for Julius Peppers on the way shortly.  

Taylor’s contract, like the one for Kyle Vanden Bosch, includes a lot of front-loaded money in the uncapped year.  

Look for Taylor and Matt Forte to split up the workload in Chicago next season.  Both excel on passing downs; now the Bears just need to find someone that can block for them.

Somewhere, LaDainian Tomlinson is wondering why he can’t get any love.
