The Bears need a defensive end this off season. Either via the draft, or through free agency, but they definitely need to add some talent to the position. They re-upped with the steady Israel Idonije and they still have the dominant Julius Peppers, but those two guys have played far too many snaps the last two seasons. They need a 3rd DE to step in and take the job opposite Peppers, or at the very least to rotate in and rush the passer. I hate to break it to some of you Bears fans, but Kamerion Wimbley is not that guy. Kamerion Wimbley is a linebacker.

Last year in Oakland he mostly played the strong side outside linebacker position, but he would stick his hand on the ground and rush the passer in passing situations because he's good at it. He was drafted to be an edge rusher from the OLB position in a 3-4 defense by the Cleveland Browns. Besides those times that he rushed the passer as a DE, he's always playing LB. He's a good football player with experience as an OLB in both the 3-4 and the 4-3, but he's never been a full time 4-3 DE.
