TEAMS: Chicago Bears
Minnesota_vikings_v_9bd5
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:''});

Chicago Bears Roster Revitalized

This Bears fan has a bad taste in her mouth over the entire thing. I feel that Urlacher should have just accepted the offer...
