Angelo will eventually sign one of the following which will negate the need for the Bears to take an OLB in the upcoming draft: Warrick Holdman; Anthony Simmons, who was with the Seahawks last season; Jay Foreman, who was let go by the Texans; and Tommy Polley, who played for Bears coach Lovie Smith in St. Louis.

It's all just going to come down to dollars. My guess is that Angelo will continue to follow his pattern of letting the market shake out and then step in and swoop up whichever of these four guys is the last man standing.

yep... looks like they aren't done yet.

Lovie:
"Bringing in one more veteran linebacker was something that if we could do it, it would be good," he said. "We still feel the same way. There are a few guys out there still and we may go that direction. We're not done. We would still like to add a couple more players to the mix."

Ya gotta like that - in years past we may grab one FA and call it a day. This year they are doing everything they can to fill in the holes on both sides of the ball without dropping mega-bucks and putting themselves into cap trouble.

yeah, but, on CB.com they've said that with the pick up of moose, miller and garza, they're in good position to pick up the BPA in the draft.

you never know, we might have DJ Yet

It's very possible that they won't make another FA move until they see what they get in the draft... if they are able to trade down and grab a WR and a TE then that changes your whole FA mindset.
