According to the NFL transactions list, the Bears have renegotiated
the deal of offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb.
Webb, a four-year veteran, had a base salary of $1.323 million but is
looking at a pay cut.
The restructuring comes after Webb was demoted to second-team left
tackle. Rookie Jordan Mills has taken over at right tackle with the
first-team offense for the time being.
Webb started every game at left tackle last season, but currently
finds himself in a competition for a roster spot. He’s competing
against veterans Jonathan Scott and Eben Britton to be the Bears’
Scott has been sidelined by a right knee injury but recently had it
drained of fluids. He’s expected to return soon.
