Fact is, the passing game has become so similar to the college style, that I definitely think its getting easier to find a franchise guy. Guys that we used to just say 'oh he's just a spread QB' - I think more and more they'll be able to make the transition.
Sign Finley+Sheffler as for our tight ends this offseason
When they asked him if he could play CF
No more rookie back up QBs as the primary back up. If you don't want to dedicate the cap space to a back up of Campbell's caliber, there are several decent veterans that would make more sense (like McNabb, for example ((though he wouldn't be my first or second choice, either)).
I don't know the Saints cap situation, but Bushrod could possibly be a cap casualty considering they just gave big contracts to Colston, Brees, and Jahri Evans over the last two off seasons. Graham is going to have a big extension after next season as well I believe if he isn't due for one this year. So they may cut bait with Bushrod, draft an OT and look to spend whatever remaining cap room they have on a CB. The Dolphins are indicating that they are willing to move on from Jake Long. I think under all circumstances the Bears *HAVE* to sign one of these guys (or Clady, if he isn't resigned for some reason) if they become available, above all else, including extending Cutler. I'd much rather draft a TE in the first or second round in addition to a second offensive lineman than go out and sign an over rated player like Finley or a super long in the tooth player like Schefter.
Now you can luxuriate in a nice jail cell, but if your hand touches metal, I swear by my pretty floral bonnet: I will end you.
resign urlacher, and melton
wait for zach miller to get cut
sign zach miller
sign dwight freeney (if lovie stays freeney would love to play for him)
sign either Branden Albert (KC), or Jake Long (MIA) if you cant sign either sign Sebastian Vollmer (NE) and look tot he draft for a LT
1st - Kevin Minter MLB LSU
2nd- Lane Johnson OT Oklahoma
4th- Travis Howard CB Ohio State
5th- Marquess Wilson WR Washington State
6th- Gabe Ikard C/G Oklahoma
Wasn't JCand Sheffler HS teammates?
Hopefully they can bring Melton, Wooten and Izzy back next season. The Bears need to get a speedy deep threat in the draft.
Bears always make a stupid draft pick. Shouldve taken a n offensive lineman and you draft mcclean ? Great pick.
Tyler Eifert here we come.
I hope they don't draft a lineman in the first round. By the time there pick rolls around this year, the elite tackles will already be gone, and will be stuck with guards. A position that can be filled in the later rounds.
