He's a hard WR to cover too.

The Bears are currently in “deep negotiations” to sign free agent quarterback Jason Campbell. Campbell would serve as Jay Cutler’s backup in Chicago, upgrading a troublesomely weak position. Caleb Hanie and Todd Collins have served in the role, and both flopped.

Great move for the Bears, and the Dolphins. Marshall just isnt a fit in Miami, if they are going to try and bring a west coast type offense. Marshall is ideal for the Bears, he has great chemistry with Cutler, to go with Cutler's top college target, Earl Bennett. It really worked out well for Cutler, he gets his two favorite receivers and gets to play on his childhood team. If the Bears can focus on getting younger on defense in the draft and add a big time receiving TE, the Bears will contend for the superbowl.

I wonder if this forces us into drafting Clairborne or do we stick with upgrading the O-Line.

It's a shame, but as soon as Cutler gets his man, he might lose him for a while.

Brandon Marshall in a fight at a nightclub

This was a great move from a football standpoint for the Bears, but you have to wonder about the situations this guy puts himself in time and again. He was a great value for the price they paid, but I would expect a suspension.

Even at 27 years old this guy has so much growing up left to do.

He's a borderline personality. Therapy, not growing up, is what he needs.

I hope they have a good backup, because that will be needed with Herrera as your starter Razz

Therapy as medication and psychotherapy to treat a personality disorder. Things like that don't usually just 'go away' in an adult person.
