Garza and the Chicago Bears have agreed on a two-year contract extension through 2013.||||||| Primarily a guard his first 10 seasons, Garza replaced the departed Olin Kreutz at center and helped stabilize a line that struggled in the early going but has played well in recent weeks. The blocking was good enough in Monday's 30-24 victory at Philadelphia for Jay Cutler to go the entire game without being sacked - no small accomplishment, considering he had at least one in 29 straight games.

Garza was signed to a six-year contract extension by the Bears on Monday. The offensive lineman appeared in all 16 games this season, starting seven, after signing a one-year deal with Chicago in March. Garza has started 38 of 68 games during his career.|||||||

Garza said he was stunned by this revelation, as, after he tore his ACL in 2003, returned to start every game at left guard for Atlanta in 2004, never missing any practices and playing without pain.|||||||
