In the end, Caleb Hanie proved to be too good for the Bears to cut.

The undrafted free agent quarterback out of Colorado State has made the Bears' final 53-man roster, which has taken shape today. The Sun-Times has reported the names of 18 players who will be let go, but has learned that Hanie has a spot on the roster. At least for now. It's unknown what would happen if veteran Chris Simms would become available on the open market but the thinking is the Bears like Hanie as a prospect now.


He stood out starting in the first preseason game vs. Kansas City and progressed a little bit each week. Hanie finished preseason 29-of-49 for 321 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. His passer rating was 82.1. Certainly his mobility in the pocket stood out and he displayed a strong arm.

Stay tuned for more news as it becomes available.

Keeping only 8 OL is a little odd considering we'd only have 3 backups and Williams on the PUP list. I hope it's not a sign that Fred Miller is coming back.

I hope we can find someone else's trash and make them our treasure. Not "the turnstyle".

well, mcgowan is probably nickel back, and manning was going to play there too.
