The Sports Xchange

Chicago Bears center Roberto Garza was released Thursday in the latest move in a roster makeover by new general manager Ryan Pace.

Garza signed a contract extension on Dec. 26, 2014, under former general manager Phil Emery in 2014. Emery was fired in January.

A 10-year veteran with 145 career starts, Garza began his career with the Atlanta Falcons and signed with the Bears in 2005.

He said late last season he was not ready to retire after a season in which he was bothered by ankle issues.
