Chicago Bears Meet With Orlando Pace, Ken Lucas

Posted By NFLSportChannel On March 31, 2009 @ 10:30 pm In News | No Comments

Wouldn't this be an ironic way to fix a secondary: free agent corner Ken Lucas visited Halas Hall on Monday.

Lucas is best known for getting beaten up by teammate Steve Smith in a preseason fight last August.

The Bears secondary has been known to get beaten by just about any receiver the last few years.

On Monday, Lucas and veteran offensive tackle Orlando Pace visited with the Bears. Pace, coming off three seasons plagued by injuries, had been a Hall of Fame left tackle in St. Louis for 12 seasons.

He would likely compete with former Cleveland Brown Kevin Shaffer and former Carolina Panther Frank Omiyale on the right side, with last year's top pick Chris Williams presumably starting at left tackle.

Lucas, on the other hand, is just 30 years old and had a decent year after getting his nose rearranged by Smith. He recorded 60 tackles and two interceptions in 2008.

At six feet tall and 200 pounds, the Bears would hope Lucas could provide a physical presence in the their secondary they aren't confident Nathan Vasher or Corey Graham can opposite Charles Tillman.
