A surprise cut by the Packers Saturday, guard Josh Sitton didn't waste any time spicing up the NFL's oldest rivalry, signing a three-year contract with the Bears Sunday.

Sitton, 30, appeared in 121 games with 112 starts in eight seasons with the Packers after being selected by Green Bay in the fourth round of the 2008 draft out of Central Florida.

The 6-3, 318-pounder has started 64 games at right guard, 47 at left guard and one at left tackle. He was named Offensive Linemen of the Year by the NFL Alumni Association in 2010 when he helped the Packers win the Super Bowl and first-team All-Pro by The Sporting News in 2014.

Sitton reportedly was cut after the Packers were unable to trade him before the NFL's Saturday deadline to reduce rosters to 53. He was entering the final year of his contract with Green Bay.
