The Chicago Bears have been very busy trying to upgrade their offensive line with young talent. Most recently, by claiming former 2021 first-round pick Alex Leatherwood off waivers from the Las Vegas Raiders. However, they are also reportedly looking at veterans too, including another former Raider who has been out of football for the last year.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Bears brought in veteran guard Kelechi Osemele for a workout on Thursday. Osemele last played in the NFL in 2020 for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Osemele last played in 2020, for the Chiefs. He was a second-round pick of the Ravens in 2012, and a two-time Pro Bowler with the Raiders, in 2017-18.
The six-foot-five, 330-pound Osemele spent four years with the Baltimore Ravens and made 51 starts along the offensive line – seeing time at guard, right and left tackle - from 2012-15 before signing with the Oakland Raiders as a free agent ahead of the 2016 campaign.
He logged 42 starts exclusively at left guard for the Raiders over the next three seasons, earning a reputation as one of the better offensive guards in the NFL, prior to being traded to the New York Jets in 2019.
Osemele was seen as a potential first-round pick headed into the 2012 Draft and showed off his strength at the NFL Scouting Combine that year, ranking second among all offensive linemen with 32 reps on the bench press.
The Ravens ended up selecting him with the No. 60 overall pick, making him the 12th offensive lineman taken that year.
I think this move could be a lot like when the Bears picked up LT Jason Peters prior to last season and it turned out to be a very solid move!
Here is a Tweet that was sent out by Osemele after the workout:
