3. Lance Louis [2.5]
4. Nick Roach [2]

Rookie Pool: 4 million

28.85

35.22-28.85=6.37

Free Agent Budget: 6.37 million

Free Agency


Branden Albert 5 years 42.5 million/22 guaranteed/15 signing bonus

Year 1: 2 million salary/3 million signing bonus [5]
Year 2: 3 million salary/3 million signing bonus/2 million roster bonus [8] Peppers Gone
Year 3: 3 million salary/3 million signing bonus/3 million roster bonus [9] Cap Increase
Year 4: 5.5/3 million signing bonus/2 million roster bonus [10.5]
Year 5: 7 million salary/3 million signing bonus [10] Restructure Space

The Bears do not have the budget to grab a number of free agents, but they do have enough to make one impact signing while retaining their free agents. Albert comes in and gives the Bears their best LT since John Tait. Albert is worth the investment because the Bears have very little chance of getting a LT in the draft and it will allow Webb to move to RT and be an upgrade over Carimi/Scott. Albert is well known by Emery, which also lowers the risk of handing him serious money.



QB Kellen Clemens [St. Louis] 2 years 2 million/1 guaranteed

Year 1: 1 million guaranteed [1]
Year 2: 1 million salary [1]

The Bears need a cheaper back up option than Jason Campbell and Clemens is a smart player that has started games in the league.



Draft

The Bears choose to pool their resources in free agency and sign the LT that they need to use the draft to fill a number of needs and to bring youth and competition to a number of positions. The Bears trade down so that they can fill a number of needs.

*The Chicago Bears trade 1[20] [850 points]to the San Francisco 49ers for 2[34], 2[62] and 7th round pick [839 points] The 49ers have 13 picks and simply cannot afford to have 13 rookies on the team they have more then enough to move up and get a 2nd 1st round pick.

2[34] TE Gavin Escobar [San Diego St] 6'6" 255lbs.

The Bears add a talented TE that can catch the ball consistently and threaten the middle of the field.



2[50] C Travis Frederick [Wisconsin] 6'4" 312lbs.

The Bears have secured the LT position and in the process upgraded at RT, but they still need a C that can come in and make Garza even more expendable than his play has already made him.



2[62] LB Jon Bostic [Florida] 6'1" 245lbs.

Bostic is a physical leader and a smash mouth MLB that showed more speed than was expected with a 4.6 in the 40 yard dash. Bostic also had the intangibles to be the defenses leader when Urlacher is gone.



4. OG Jordan Mills [Louisiana Tech] 6'5" 316lbs.

Reports have the Bears liking James Brown, but he needs competition and the Bears need depth in case Brown is not ready and Louis is not ready to play because of the ACL. Mills has a ton of power to work with.



5. WR Tavarres King [Georgia] 6'1" 200lbs.

The speed option for the Bears at WR he can come in and play 10 snaps a game as a rookie and Trestman can use him to take the top off the defense every once and awhile. King had a great Senior Bowl.



6. CB Sheldon Price [UCLA] 6'2" 200lbs.

Size, speed and youth for the Bears to develop as CB depth and to add to the special teams units.



7. DT Anthony Rashad-White [Michigan St] 6'2" 330lbs.

A potential run stuffing DT that can back up at NT and possibly allow the Bears to save some money while releasing Big Toe. Rashad-White has the size to contribute in short yardage packages.

Good stuff. However, I do believe there would be a chance for a OT at 20 if they don't trade it. I would not take Frederick over Jones or the center from Cal or take Escobar anywhere above the fourth round he is not much better than half dozen other guys. I would love to get Bostic somehow. Mills and King would be great.
