NFL Trade Rumors:
Brad Biggs tweets that impending free agent DT Henry Melton will be franchised by the Bears if they’re unable to come to a long-term agreement before the March 4 deadline.
The two sides are expected to meet at the Combine this Saturday to discuss a contract.
Melton, 26, is a fairly obvious candidate for the designation given that he represents the best interior lineman available in this year’s free agent class. While he’s only put together two standout seasons for the Bears, he’s clearly an impact player worthy of a large extension.
Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 7 best defensive tackle in league this season and we have Melton listed as the No. 5 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.

I was a little slow to get with the fad, but I love these memes that you can find all over the internet now. The dancing kid that is happy to get the t-shirts of the losing team? Funny. Anything with the most interesting man in the world from the Dos Equis commercials? Good stuff.
Pretty much anything with Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin, or the robot from Futurama cracks me up...
Kellen Davis showed a lot of promise as a player for the Chicago Bears in his limited action. At one time it was thought that Davis could consistently catch 40 to 50 balls a season and be a very good TE threat for the Bears.
