Screw football, bring on the hot babes. Or is it the other way around?

How this is not sig quoted by someone yet is baffling to me.

Decent pick up, we need the depth.

Ellis didn't show up to camp today and is planning to retire.

Really thought he had some potential in our system..

Leaves us pretty thin at the DT spot.

Ha wow, surely our training camp isn't that bad that it forces you to retire before it even starts?! Bit of a blow to our DT depth though, Amobi Okoye still hasn't found a team I believe... Or this could give someone like Zach Minter a better chance to make the roster.

Strange, any reason as to why?

Probably did it to earn a signing bonus, and then run. Maybe I'm just cynical. I would be willing to bet the Bears find a way to get their money back from the signing bonus.

Sad to see Sedrick retire before he played as a bear. He would have thrived in our system. Hopefully Zach Minter has a chance to make the team now.

Bring back a Okoye? Or see what Richard Seymour's asking price is?

That is real disappointing…Ellis could have restarted his career in this scheme but if his heart wasn’t in it it’s better to find out now.

What is the cap hit? Can the Bears reclaim the bonus money?

Ellis is obligated to return the bonus money under the CBA, so the Bears will most likely come after it. If he doesn't return it, it could become a legal issue. There's no cap hit assuming they get the money back ($285K).
