The Chicago Bears have waived former All-Pro tackle Orlando Pace after one season in which he was limited to 11 games because of injuries.

The Bears also waived tight end Fontel Mines and guard Tyler Reed on Monday.
Chicago signed Pace last season as a free agent to help patch up a faulty offensive line, but the fading star didn't provide much help.
Pace was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection with the Rams and one of the best offensive tackles in the league. He was drafted No. 1 overall out of Ohio State in 1997 and went on to play in two Super Bowls with St. Louis.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Bears a 40/1 long shot to win the 2011 Super Bowl.
