Agreed. He's better than a host of starters we have had over the last 5+ years.

Can back up all three interior positions... although I think it will be LG/RG with Grasu backing up C.

Those 3 positions are set now, and I think that was the best first news from the Bears this offseason... 5 players for 3 positions, and 2 of them can play 2 positions (Cody and Kush)...

Yup, now we need a swing tackle and I'm good with the line.

I'm wondering with how deep this draft is at CB/S, are we going to just avoid going after a CB/S in FA? Maybe throw the coin at Alshon and a 5T?

There are a number of intriguing DL options in free agency. You could argue that the market is deeper and may offer more value.

AJ Bouye at 13 million or Brandon Williams at 9.

Just reading around, NFL executives/scouts are saying you can find starting-level talent at corner and safety through round 3.

The Bears on Monday re-signed one exclusive rights free agent, tight end Daniel Brown, to a one-year contract and tendered two others, receiver Joshua Bellamy and defensive back Bryce Callahan.


Glad to see Brown and Callahan are back.

It is not. He's gotta do a physical before they can officially release him. I'll update the op.

I'm trying to put together a list of everyone all the NFCN teams have lost and added. Would someone mind popping over and giving me the rundown on what the Bears have been doing?
