Williams should be the only priority at this point. Once that's over with we can fix the O-line.

Williams, Winston, and another lower level wide receiver would be great.

Honestly I wouldn't have been mad if they traded their 1st round pick for Marshall

Marshall isn't an FA, it was a trade...


This deal rules though

Wow. Random fact: it's been 9 years since the bears have had a 1,000 yard+ reciever. Longest in NFL. It's felt like it.

Looks like the rest of Chicago is making up for Bowman's lack of moves.

I prefer this over 29 year old VJax getting more money than any other WR for 5 years.


Cutty + Marshall > Cutty + VJax


and I'd take Marshall over Jackson...

Sounds like the Bears wont get Mario Williams, the deal is getting too rich and appears the Bills are in the lead--with the most money

I'll believe it when I see it. Who would want to play for the Bills?

that's why nobody should get their hopes to high just wait and see.

Right now, we need to sign a DE. Izzy is a FA now

Was just thinking the same thing unless the Bears get a stud in the draft. Bring in somebody to compete with Hester and Bennet. I prefer Hester used sparingly on offense and resume what he does best.

Marshall will make the entire offense better. Less of teams stacking the line, more holes for the RB's and so on. Marshall will catch balls thrown to him while he's actually well covered.

John Abraham is another free agent DE who can rush the passer. Not much against the run though.

^ yeah money talks but let's hope Williams would rather play for a team headed in the right direction. I can't believe I just said that.

K. Williams, M. Williams, and Marcell Dareus is a freakish defensive line.

Believe #Bears will seek pass-rushing help in free agency but Mario Williams' visit to #Bills gives them huge edge. Don't think CHI is in it
