The Arizona Cardinals appear to be losing another free agent.

It has been an active offseason for the Arizona Cardinals in free agency, but not in signing other teams' former players. This offseason it has been about their free agents signing places. Another former Cardinals player appears to be set to join another team.

According to Adam Caplan, Ted Larsen, who spent the last two season with the Arizona Cardinals, is expected to sign a contract with the Chicago Bears.

Larsen would join former Cardinals right tackle Bobby Massie in Chicago. Massie signed a three-year, $18 million deal early in free agency.

Larsen enters his seventh year in the league. He has played in 86 games as a pro and has started 57. He started 26 games in two seasons with the Cardinals, playing all 16 games in 2014 and then taking over at right guard after Jonathan Cooper was benched, starting 10 more in 2015.

If he signs, he would join Massie, Rashad Johnson, Bradley Sowell and Sean Weatherspoon as Arizona free agents signing elsewhere.

The Cardinals have re-signed several of their own free agents, but have added only two from elsewhere -- safety Tyvon Branch and guard Evan Mathis.

The Cardinals still have Lyle Sendlein, Jerraud Powers and Dwight Freeney as unsigned free agents. Powers reportedly visits the Giants on Thursday, Sendlein would like to play in 2016 and so does Freeney. Of the three players, only Freeney has really a chance of coming back to Arizona in 2016.
