Chicago Bears Roster Notes: James Brown is the Wild Card

James Brown was rated by Mel Kiper Jr. as the 54th best prospect coming into the 2012 NFL draft.  By Kiper's rankings that meant Brown should have been drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft.  Many other draftnik sites saw Brown as a mid round prospect who should have been drafted as an offensive guard.  Instead Brown wasn't drafted and he was signed by the Bears...

Devin Hester is content with being a return man on Bears

Devin Hester is not expected to see a lot of action at wide receiver this year. There is a chance that Hester could not be used at all at the position and that is alright according to the 30-year-old. “I’m fine with it,” Hester said on The J Mack and Nate Vash Show. “It was kind of my idea to let me more focus on my kickoff and punt return thing. … It was more of my idea...

Emery Bucking Bears History

Phil Emery has been the general manger for the Chicago Bears for about 15 months now and his long-term plan for the team is methodically being revealed, though it could be a shock to the system of those who have followed the team for a long time. Since George Halas founded the Chicago Bears back in 1920, the team name has been synonymous with stingy defense. The most casual...

Devin Hester is looking to get his ‘swagger’ back as a return man

The good news is Devin Hester won’t be playing receiver in 2013, but the bad news is he’ll have more time to focus on returning kicks. Hester has made the kick return a thing of beauty to watch over the years and now he’ll get more time to focus on what he does best. According to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com, Hester is in the process of re-introducing himself to sole kickoff duties...

Chicago Bears 2013 NFL Draft Targets

Here’s a look at who I think the Chicago Bears should be putting these hats on for Draft Day. With the #20 pick in the 1st round, I’m liking the buzz I have heard about Geno Smith, QB out of West Virginia. (As if you did not know who Geno Smith was already…) Still, based on recent reports, if they are really interested in drafting Smith, they will have to make some serious...

Cardinals Sign OL Chilo Rachel

According to Mike Jureski of XTRA 910 radio, the Cardinals signed OL Chilo Rachal to a one-year contract. Rachal, 27, had a forgettable 2012 season to say the least. He mysteriously left the Bears for a day, which led to him being benched in favor of Chris Spencer. Chicago subsequently placed him on the reserve/non-football injury list for the remainder of the season. Pro Football...

Brandon Marshall Loves Marc Trestman’s Offense

The Chicago Bears have had an off-season full of rather surprising moves. After letting go of head coach Lovie Smith after he won 10 games, the team went with former CFL head coach Marc Trestman to replace him. Then they cut off negotiations with long-time middle linebacker Brian Urlacher when the two sides couldn’t reach [...]

Bears' Hurd To Plead Guilty In Drug Case

The 6-foot-2, 302-pound Fluellen has played in 56 games with six starts over five seasons with Detroit (2008-12) and Miami (2012). He appeared in five games and made six tackles with the Lions and Dolphins last season. The 6-6, 263-pound Moore spent...

Devin Hester is fine with focusing on returning kicks

Bears head coach Marc Trestman isn't afraid of making some changes around his team. One of the changes we'll see when football returns later in the year is Devin Hester back returning kicks as his primary job. The move makes a lot of sense, but until now, we weren't sure how Hester felt about the news. Yesterday, Hester said in an interview on WLS in Chicago that he...

Jay Cutler confirms he mailed engagement ring on second proposal

Jay Cutler confirmed the story that everyone hoped was not true: he mailed an engagement ring to Kristin Cavallari the second time they agreed to get married. Cutler and Cavallari broke up in July 2011, but they got back together a few months later and they now have a child together.
