John St. Clair was seeking $5 million per season when he opened contract negotiations with the Bears.
He was a one-time backup to Orlando Pace in St. Louis.
That's what the Bears will pay Pace. He gets a $15 million, three-year deal, and will have the opportunity to earn $11 million in the first two seasons without having to trigger bonuses or incentives.
Pace is expected to be the starter at left tackle with Chris Williams and Kevin Shaffer working at right tackle.
