2012 Bears Offseason: G Chris Williams Poised To Move Back To Left Tackle

The Chicago Bears may be considering a key change along the offensive line in 2012. According to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, the Bears appear to be leaning toward starting G Chris Williams back at his natural position, left tackle.

A source on the team informed Biggs that Williams practiced at both guard and tackle in the recent voluntary offseason workout program, and the current roster layout suggests the team will need another tackle unless Williams moves to the outside.

Williams joined the NFL in 2008 as a first round draft pick (No. 14 overall) and a left tackle. Injuries, ineffectiveness and roster construction led the Bears to move him to right guard from left tackle.
