After starting 68 games for the Saints and going to his first Pro Bowl this year, Jermon Bushrod is leaving New Orleans for Chicago.
The 29-year-old left tackle reportedly has agreed to a 5-year deal with the Bears worth an estimated $35.9 million.
In a message to fans Tuesday night, Bushrod tweeted, "It's been a bittersweet day for my family and I. Excited about our new opportunity in Chicago but extremely sad about leaving New Orleans."
"I'm very appreciative of the support I've gotten over the years from the #Whodatnation and I will never forget that as I move forward in life."
