Veteran linebacker Rocky McIntosh visited the Bears on Tuesday, according to a league source.
The Bears have hosted several veteran players, without signing them, likely so they can make a move after the draft, depending on what positions they address.
ESPN Chicago first reported the Bears interest in McIntosh.
And for good reason.
A former second-round pick, McIntosh has been a durable and productive player. In six seasons, he's missed just four games. But, he lost his starting spot last season to Perry Riley.
McIntosh is appealing because of his ability to play inside and outside linebacker, and his extensive experience (69 starts).
McIntosh is 29 years old.
The Bears are thin behind starters Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs and Nick Roach, with the likes of Dom DeCicco, Patrick Trahan, Jabara Williams, J.T. Thomas and Blake Costanzo, who was signed primarily for special teams reasons.
