07:17 PM ET 03.12 | The Chicago Bears need help on the offensive line and they're looking to free agency to get that help. Jake Long is a name being floated around, but the Bears aren't comfortable with his price and have begun looking elsewhere to start to patch up their frontline. According to Tom Pelissero of ESPN1500 in Minneapolis, the Bears have a "legitimate" interest in Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt and are currently offering more money than the Vikings are. Signing Loadholt doesn't mean the Bears are out of the running to sign Jake Long, but one thing it does do is shore up a weak offensive line from 2012. Everyone from the Chicago media to Jay Cutler were vocal about how bad the protection was last season so it's no surprise that the Bears are making it a priority this offseason.

Whatever it takes to build up that O-line.

It's unlikely they'll get him, but Jake Long would be a nice addition, too.

As big as he is...he is on the radar of most of the Midwest
