Is anyone worried about Albert's back?

He's got to pass a physical to sign a new deal, so I'm somewhat concerned (especially w/ our history) but I feel confident that if he can pass a physical he's good to go.

Seems that all the OT who are free agents aside from Bushrod/Clady have some sort of back issue. Little worrisome but if they can pass a physical it shouldn't be a problem. Plus anyone of them is a much needed improvement.

What do you guys think of Delanie Walker as a possible flexg TE?

He has good hands, good speed and he comes from a winning team that makes him an interesting player and he should have a reasonable price.

I've ALWAYS liked Delanie Walker, like seriously, back to his rookie year when he was better receiver than Vernon Davis. I'd LOVE for him to be a Bear. Would be Phil Emery's Des Clark.

I am looking at reasonably priced free agent TEs and he was an interesting name.

If we could get him for 3-4 million a season I think it would be a steal and open us up in the draft.

Delanie Walker had the highest drop rate, by far, of all the TE's that qualified. He dropped over 30% of his passes.

We are looking for cheaper mid-level free agents and they are going to have to have some warts.

The drops are a concern, but guys like Keller and Cook are going to cost twice as much.

I personally believe that TE is the biggest need on this team - and in a situation where we need a TE to be an integral part of the offense I believe a 30% drop rate is bigger than a wart.

I'd rather commit the money to one of the top TE's available - or commit a first round pick to Ertz/Eifert.

Maybe we spread the free agent dollars around and instead of signing a LT we sign a RT [Loadholt] and a TE [Cook].

I'd be very happy with that off-season.

I also am higher on Webb than many here. If we could get a solid G next to Webb, I wouldn't have any problem counting on Webb as a LT in this WCO next season. Bring in a RT (as you say above) and a solid G (either draft or FA) - this line will have all the overhaul it needs.

We should get Gavin Escobar in the 4th and we neeeeed to resign Henry Melton. I think Urlacher will take a hometown paycut.

Escobar in the 4th would be ideal if he's there. Urlacher needs to take a vet min deal. I'd be upset if the money we gave him affected our ability to sign another younger player.

I'd be cool with that though it seems MIN wants to bring Loadholt back.

Wasn't Evan Rodriguez supposed to be that guy? What ever happened to that?
