    LAKE FOREST, Ill. Nike Shox r4 . -- The Chicago Bears released Robbie Gould, ending an 11-year run with the most accurate kicker in franchise history, and upgraded their offensive line by signing three-time Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton to a three-year deal Sunday night.With Gould gone and Sitton in place, the Bears figure to have a different look when they open the season against Houston on Sept. 11.Gould had quite a run in Chicago after going undrafted out of Penn State in 2005. He was working in construction when he signed with the Bears early that season after being released by New England and Baltimore.Gould helped the 2006 team reach the Super Bowl and became the Bears all-time leader in field-goal percentage (85.4 percent) and points (1,207). He also holds club records for field goals made (276), field goals made of 50 yards or more (23), field goals made in a season (33 in 2015) and longest field goal made (58-yards in 2013).Gould had a rough stretch last season after making his first 15 field-goal attempts, though he wound up converting 84.6 percent. He made 5 of 6 field goals in the preseason but missed two extra points in the final exhibition against Cleveland. And with two years remaining on his contract, the Bears are parting ways and will need to bring in another kicker.The 30-year-old Sitton was a surprise cut by Green Bay on Saturday. He had started 112 of 121 regular-season games since being drafted in the fourth round in 2008 out of Central Florida. He was one of the leaders on a front five that protects quarterback Aaron Rodgers.The signing of Sitton should bring a smile to quarterback Jay Cutler. He will have two star guards protecting him with three-time Pro Bowl lineman Kyle Long on the right side and Sitton at left guard.The Bears can now go with either veteran Ted Larsen at center or rookie Cody Whitehair, who took some snaps there but worked mainly at left guard in the preseason.The Bears also signed tight end Logan Paulsen and claimed center Eric Kush and cornerback Crevon LeBlanc off waivers on Sunday.Offensive lineman Cornelius Edison, defensive back Demontre Hurst and tight end Khari Lee were waived to make room on the roster.Paulsen played in 75 games for Washington over five seasons, finishing with 79 receptions for 801 yards and six touchdowns. But he missed last year with an injury and was released on Saturday.Kush also was cut Saturday after appearing in seven games with the Rams last season. LeBlanc, an undrafted rookie out of Florida Atlantic, played 141 snaps and had an interception for New England during the preseason, but was released by the Patriots over the weekend.The Bears signed six players to their practice squad, including former Harvard tight end Ben Braunecker and wide receiver Daniel Braverman, a seventh-round pick in this years draft out of Western Michigan.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Nike Shox Current . -- Adam Snyder returned to the San Francisco 49ers this season because the offensive lineman thought it was his best opportunity to win a championship. Air Zoom Pegasus 34 . Ferrer, trying to win his fourth title on Mexican soil, will next play South Africas Kevin Anderson, who eliminated American Sam Querrey,7-6 (2), 6-4. Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half.The Toronto Blue Jays made a couple of deals heading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline a year ago and both were designed to shore up the bullpen. They dealt outfielder Travis Snider - a former first-round pick - to Pittsburgh for reliever Brad Lincoln and sent Eric Thames to Seattle for another hard-throwing reliever in Steve Delabar. At the very least, Alex Anthopoulos won the Delabar deal, seeing as how he blossomed into an All-Star (with a little help from the fans) this year. The Mariners ended up dealing Thames to Baltimore for another minor leaguer. The swap with Pittsburgh hasnt quite panned out so far. Lincoln has had a couple of shining moments with the big club, but has spent the bulk of this season with Buffalo in Triple A. It was a pretty active week headlining up to the deadline last year. The Angels landed the biggest name getting right hander Zach Greinke from Milwaukee for a trio of prospects including shortstop Jean Segura. The Halos gambled on getting a rental in Greinke and the move backfired when he signed with the Dodgers in the offseason. And the Angels didnt even make the postseason. Detroit did well, giving up three prospects - including pitcher Jacob Turner - to Miami to get right-hander Anibal Sanchez and second baseman Omar Infante - two players who were key in getting them to the World Series against the Giants. The Dodgers new ownership made some huge noise, getting Hanley Ramirez from Miami and Shane Victorino from the Phillies before pulling off the biggest blockbuster of many a year on August 25, getting Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto from Boston in a nine-player swap. Those deals didnt exactly pay immediate dividends for the Dodgers, partially because Crawford was injured. But a year later, with a boost from Yasiel Puig, they are in first place in the National League West and look like they could be World Series contenders. Still, the team that did the best at the deadline a year ago was San Francisco. The Giants added Hunter Pence from the Philllies for outfielder Nate Schierholtz and two prospects and then second baseman Marco Scutaro, who turned into a playoff hero from Colorado. Pence added a colourful quirky brand of leadership that helped propel the Giants to their second World Series victory in three years. Ironically, the Giants couuld turn into big time sellers this year now that theyve fallen to fourth in the NL West. Air Zoom Pegasus 33. . The Dodgers and Arizona are only seperated by a game and a half in the West, so they could both be active. St. Louis is on top in the Central, but could be in the market for starting pitching. With Tim Hudson suffering that horrible broken ankle, East-leading Atlanta could be looking for a pitcher as well. The American League could be a little quieter, since Texas has already landed Matt Garza from the Cubs and Baltimore has picked up late reliever Francisco Rodriguez from Milwaukee. White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy could be the biggest starting pitcher name to get moved this time around. Its hard to say where the Blue Jays stand in all of this. Theyre 10 games behind Baltimore for the second Wild Card spot with 61 games left to play, so loading up for a run doesnt make much sence. The Blue Jays arent about to "blow it up" either, when their stated plan was to be serious contenders for a three-year span. I could see a reliever or two being moved. Lefty Darren Oliver (whos close to retirement) comes to mind and maybe a utility-type player such as Emilio Bonifacio. If any starting pitcher is moved, Id bet on Mark Buehrle. He upped his stock considerably with that two-hit shutout of Houston on Thursday night (yeah, I know it was only the Astros). Buehrle might look good in the rotation of a National League contender like the Dodgers, Cardinals, Diamondbacks or Braves. The most interesting team to watch might be the Yankees. Theyre only 2 1/2 games back of the second Wild Card slot in the AL and re-acquired Alfonso Soriano. The Yankees are always in it to win it and being this close may be just the temptation they need to go all in again. The non-waiver trade deadline is this Wednesday afternoon at 4pm et. Elsewhere, right-hander Marcus Stroman is continuing to put impressive numbers with the Blue Jays AA New Hampshire affiliate. On Wednesday, he struck out 11 members of the Harrisburg Senators over 6 2/3 innings in a no decision. The 59" flamethrower is 5-2 with a 2.99 ERA. Hes struck out 79 while only walking 19 and opponents are only hitting .216 against him. In his last five starts, Stroman has gone at least six innings and twice into the seventh. He just might be a candidate for the Blue Jays starting rotation next spring.
