You would assume the agreement will take the Patriots out of the running for free agent Pisa Tinoisamoa, who visited the team Tuesday. The Bears are among the teams who remain in pursuit of Tinoisamoa, a list that also includes Buffalo.
You can never predict these things for sure, but it's reasonable to expect Tinoisamoa to pick between the Bears and Bills soon. We'll keep you updated.
