Former Bears offensive tackle Cornelius Lucas, a key reserve for them last season, is leaving for the Redskins. They added him Thursday on a two-year, $5.3 million deal, ESPN reported.

Lucas, a six-year veteran, started eight games and played 48 percent of the snaps for the Bears in 2019. It is by far the richest contract of his career.
