Found June 15, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Dan Pompei of The Chicago Tribune believes that the Bears are out of the hunt to re-sign free agent DL Israel Idonije. Previous reports have indicated that the Bears had a standing offer out to Idonije, but their recent decision to sign DT Sedrick Ellis could be an indication that they’re no longer interested in bringing Idonije back for another season. As things stand right now, Chicago has only $1.63 million in available cap space to work with,  which also works against the idea of signing Idonije. Idonije, 32, has found very little interest on the open market, but he did visit with the Titans back in April. He’s coming off of a season in which he tallied 7.5 sacks for the Bears defense. We have him currently listed as the No. 4 player in our Best Available Free Agents list. The post Bears Unlikely To Bring Back DL Israel Idonije appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.

Bears QB Said What?

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has a habit of working folks into a frenzy when he speaks - rather unintentionally, I believe. People get worked into a lather as he seems rather flippant, off-putting, or, at worst, condescending. I usually don't pay too much attention to what he says. I don't let it get under my skin, as I am convinced at least half of it is baloney...

Chicago Bears Mini-Camp Analysis: Is Tim Jennings the New Slot CB?

During the 2012 season the Chicago Bears struggled mightily at finding a player capable of lining up in the slot and shutting down teams' third wide receiver.  D.J. Moore struggled and was benched, Kelvin Hayden played in the position throughout most of the season and was simply awful.  D.J. Moore is no longer with the team after being the Bears' best slot cover corner...

Jay Cutler on Marc Trestman’s offense: ‘it’s a three-year process to learn an offense’

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is enjoying learning new coach Marc Trestman’s multi-faceted offense, but he’ll tell you don’t expect the greatest show on earth just yet. Cutler who has been through a few NFL offenses will tell you that it takes time for an offense to jell. Furthermore, to install an entire playbook it would take about three years. Terminology, personnel...

Throw the ball, Cutler!

Jay Cutler Looking to Avoid Sacks It seems like Cutler’s always has his mean-mug face on, as if he’s always just getting up after a hard hit.  That could be due to the fact that he was among the top 5 most sacked quarterbacks in the 2012 season.  This guy might as well be considered part of the offensive line he gets hit so much.  Since Lovie really never did much about it...

Chicago Bears Mini-Camp Notes: Marquess Wilson Behind the 8-Ball

The Chicago Bears are in desperate need of wide receiver with Devin Hester being relegated completely to the return game and only three receivers who have veteran experience in the NFL.  Seventh round draft choice Marquess Wilson was seen as a steal in the seventh round of the NFL Draft, a player who could be counted on to potentially make the 53-man roster.  However after rookie...

Chicago Bears, Gabe Carimi: Anyone win?

Gabe Carimi’s time as a Chicago Bear is over. This writer does not pretend to know the intricacies involved in creating a competitive football team; nor does he presume to know everything that acts as a prelude to a transaction such as occurred this week.  It is difficult to look in on these activities through a window from the outside, but the glimpses one gets permits a reasonable...
