Bears signed OT Tom Compton, formerly of the Falcons.

Compton is a career reserve. He played just 70 snaps for the Falcons last season. The Bears have weak starting tackles in LT Charles Leno and RT Bobby Massie, but Compton shouldn't be in the starting mix.

He isn't a starter.

But Mike Adams was the worst OT I have ever seen play in an NFL game outside of Frank Omiyale. The Bears needed actual depth and Comptkn provides depth.

Injuries are going to happen. Injuries last season forced the Bears to go with practice squad level talent too many times. Empty jerseys on the Oline will get your QB killed

I am not. He is so bad.

His pass pro technique is to retreat back into the QBs lap before getting bull rushed over him.

This is the biggest upgrade in free agency yet.

A 4th or 5th should be able to do it.

Hahaha, Mike Adams. I'm sure we could dig up some embarrassing pre-draft threads from 2012 on that guy...

Haha iirc people were talking second round for him. Then didn't he get arrested with ecstasy on him? I also seem to remember him getting tased. Could be confusing him with someone else...
