Garza also won the NCAA Division II national title in the shot put in 2000 and finished third in 1999. He also won the conference title in the discus in 1999.

Roberto Garza has been a pretty reliable starter for Chicago since 2006, if he starts again this season, that would make season 6 as a starter for the Bears, thats not bad. I remember when the Bears signed him back in 2005 to a 1 year deal to see if his knees would hold up, they did. Garza's never been a pro-bowler, but he has been pretty solid. It will be interesting to see if 3rd year guard Lance Louis will push Garza for a starting job this season? Garza's been solid but Chicago needs an upgrade, someone younger and someone that can get more push off the snap, maybe Louis? Can't wait to find out GO BEARS!!
