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:

Ah, Las Vegas. Is there any place more
cliché for a group of guys to go to for a bachelor party?
Probably not. And, why do guys like to
go to Las Vegas for bachelor parties? In truth, it’s because, as a
whole, we’re a relatively lazy bunch. Yeah, one might point to the
dizzying array of gambling opportunities, adult entertainment...
The Marc Trestman era will kick into full swing Tuesday when the Chicago Bears start their offseason training activities.
According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, under the new CBA, first year coaches get a two week head start. Biggs writes:
‘While the nine-week offseason program is considered voluntary, the Bears are expected to have excellent attendance and another...
Brian Urlacher, the face of the Chicago Bears for thirteen seasons, declined their offer. After all, a one-year, $2M deal is “insulting” (as Urlacher himself put it), when you’ve been THE Bears and a “12th Man” for so long, right? Wrong, Brian. Wrong. This Bears fan has a bad taste in her mouth over the entire thing. I feel that Urlacher should have just accepted the offer...

The 2013 NFL draft is full of raw, foreign-born prospects that make up for whatever they lack in experience with unlimited upside. You can add one more of those players to that list, but this one lacks any prior football background.
Lawrence Okoye is a 6-foot-6, 294-pound Olympic discus thrower. The 21-year-old was in the United States to train for his natural sport when he saw there...
The Chicago Bears attended a Big Ten pro day, yet skipped a workout session on Tobacco Road, which means we can cross off a potential first-round offensive lineman.
The Chicago Bears agreed to terms with QB Josh McCwon on a one-year contract today.
The Chicago Bears and former New York Jets guard Matt Slauson have agreed to a 1-year contract.
The team announced the deal on Friday. Bears General Manager Phil Emery says Slauson's size and strength will make him a challenger for a starting guard position. Slauson, 6-5, 315-pounds, started 48 of 51 games with the Jets. New York drafted him out of Nebraska in 2009. Last season...
After an up-and-down season led to a 10-6 finish that did not include the playoffs, the Chicago Bears surprised many observers by firing head coach Lovie Smith, despite his becoming the second coach in the Super Bowl era to take the team to the big game.
So the Bears enter a new era in 2013. Marc Trestman will try to join Bud Grant and Marv Levy as coaches who have had success...
