The Chicago Bears have played the market like a tune, and the music is the sound of money being saved. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears have masterfully worked free agency, grabbing two starters and a nickel back for a total salary cap hit of $2.5 million. Briggs writes: ‘Contract details for linebacker James Anderson, cornerback Kelvin Hayden and right tackle Jonathan Scott confirm that all three players were signed to one-year contracts. Anderson, who projects to be the starting strong-side linebacker, received a $200,000 signing bonus as part of his $1.25 million deal. Hayden and Scott both were signed to minimum-salary benefit deals so they count less vs. the salary cap.’ var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • There is a possibly great bargain that was cut from the Jags this year that could be used in the slot..He was the top reciever with the Cowboys the year prior with 14 td's 4 th in the league..He is being passed over because of his concussion probs last year..Might be able to get him for a bargain. and could be a big asset..Laurent Robinson
