Kicker Robbie Gould talked about general managers Phil Emery’s comments that the team wasn’t going to extend any player’s contracts in 2013.
On Wednesday, Emery said that he didn’t expect reaching any agreements on contract extensions with any of the players entering the 2013 season with an expiring deal.
The Bears have cap issues, but Gould feels that if the team wanted they could get some things done.
‘Teams usually find a way to fit players under the cap when they want to find a way to fit players under the cap,’ Gould said, via Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.com.
“If they were smart they would try to get their core group of players and re-sign them before the end of the year and try to make it work, but a lot of us are sitting in a great position,” Gould said. “You might see a lot of guys exit the Bears, [so] this year has to be pretty special, because if it doesn’t go as well as planned I can see them completely rebuilding. Or they might find a couple guys they think is their core group and get rid of some of the other higher-paid guys.”
