The Bears released Omiyale on Thursday.||||||| Omiyale started every game in 2010. He made just three starts at right tackle last season after Gabe Carimi was injured and later was replaced by Lance Louis. A seven-year veteran, Omiyale spent three seasons in Chicago after playing for Atlanta and Carolina.
Posted Feb. 27, 2009
The Bears agreed to a four-year contract with Omiyale on Friday, hoping to stabilize an offensive line that could be losing some key pieces. Omiyale can play tackle and guard, but his role with the Bears is not clear. They need help at tackle, with John Tait telling them he's retiring after 10 seasons and John St. Clair an unrestricted free agent.||||||| The Bears were interested in the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Omiyale coming out of Tennessee Tech, but Atlanta ultimately drafted him in the fifth round in 2005. Since then, he has appeared in 11 games - 10 with Carolina last season. He started against Kansas City on Oct. 5 and helped the Panthers run for 205 yards in a 34-0 victory.
