You gotta love Cribbs. He posted this on Instagram last night. I wish him well.

Keller signed a 1 year deal with the Fins for 4.3M.


Forgot he was a FA, but would have been fine had we gone with him instead of Bennett... but am also perfectly happy with Bennett.

Looks like Long is leaving St. Louis, without a deal in place. Apparently Miami is s till heavily interested, but neither them nor the Rams will budge on their offer. Whispers of another team or two interested, but not nearly as serious as the Rams or Fins.

I liked Bennett over Keller. But either is an upgrade over Davis.

I do too, but I would have been fine with either, especially since Keller is only on a one year deal. He put up some respectable numbers even with that fool throwing to him all those years.

That's true. The "Sanchez Effect" lowered his market value.

@seankjensen: CB Zack Bowman has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the #Bears, a league source says. http://*******/Ywt3qP

Good signing. Solid special teamer. Our special teams got a lot better when he returned to us mid-season last year.

That's awesome.

For every DUI and pot possession arrest, there is an athlete doing something great for his community.

Bringing back Mike Ditka today as the TE is an upgrade over Davis.

Greg Jennings officially a Viking. 5 years 48M, 18M guaranteed.


Honestly didn't think he'd leave, but if the rest of the GB WRs stay healthy, I think they're better off letting him leave for that kind of money.

It's better long-term that he left.

Damn... he got lucky from the sounds of it. They said he'll be fine in a few weeks and ready to get back to practice.

It's not the first year cap hit that makes that contract unattractive to the Bears, it's the rest of it, and the guaranteed money I'm sure.

We can draft a young rookie to at least do what Roach did in a season or so. Roach was solid, but he wasn't an essential cog in the wheel. Mark my words, Roach struggles this season by playing on a defense that is no where near the level of the teammates he had in Chicago.

true


I start to get a feeling that McClellin will be used like Von Miller and end up more as a hybrid version between a DE and OLB. Could end up as Roachs replacement

Everyone seems to think this, but the Bears constantly deny it. Personally, I don't see the fit there either. I think he is a defensive end, period. I do think he has some tools to where they can drop him into coverage to confuse offenses (they have done this before), but he does so from the normal DE position. Not sure he is an OLB fit in a 4-3 scheme and I don't see us changing to a 3-4.
