Bears interested in adding Steinbach to offensive line

The Bears continue to show interest in improving their offensive line, if the price is right as reports suggest they are looking to add former Cleveland Browns offensive guard Eric Steinbach. The Browns cut Steinbach on March 14 as the two sides couldnt agree on a new deal -- Cleveland had asked Steinbach to take a pay cut.

Steinbach missed the entire 2011 season needing surgery to repair a bulging back disk after his back stiffened up in practice prior to the regular season getting underway. However, despite missing action in 2011, Steinbach has proven he can be a reliable offensive lineman having started 124 of 125 games since joining the league in 2003 as the 33rd overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Steinbach is a native of New Lenox where he played at Providence Catholic High School and then at the University of Iowa .

Other teams interested in acquiring Steinbach include the Seattle Seahawks as well as the Baltimore Ravens.

Do you think Steinbach would make a good addition to the Bears offensive line?
