TEAMS: Chicago Bears

According to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, coach Marc Trestman stated that the team will be running the read-option in 2013. Quarterback Jay Cutler must be thrilled at the thought of having a linebacker coming off the edge directly at him. Trestman won’t force Cutler to turn into Russell Wilson, but the signal caller will have times where he’ll have to take off. This could be a little bit of concern seeing the fact Cutler tends to get injured when exposed to constant hits (We guess from the past few years that’s not much of a change). Rosenthal writes: ‘Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman revealed at the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix that the read-option will be part of the Bears' playbook. We wouldn't expect Jay Cutler to use the attack much, but it will give defenses more to prepare for. Cutler is athletic enough to at least make defenses pause on option-type plays.’ var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

Urlacher says the Bears never negotiated with him, gave him an ultimatium

After the Chicago Bears announced tonight that they weren’t going to be re-signing linebacker Brian Urlacher, he made it clear that he was given an ultiminatium. The Bears reportedly made Urlacher a one-year, $2 million offer and said take it, or leave it. “It wasn’t even an offer, it was an ultimatum,” Urlacher told the Chicago Tribune. “I feel like I’m a decent football...

Bears Tried to Seriously Low Ball Brian Urlacher

Not trying to resign linebacker Brian Urlacher is a move that is going to be widely looked upon as a little crazy; at least by many Bears fans. However, what might really be crazy is what the team is reported to have offered the long time veteran-- One year for $2 million. Yes, he is not a spring chicken. Yes, he has had some injuries over the last few years, but $2 million...

Bears plan on running the read-option in 2013

According to Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune, Bears’ head coach Marc Ttrestman told him that they plan on running the read-option with Jay Cutler in 2013. I guess Trestman is confident in Cutler’s mobility.  I would do my best to keep him out of harms way after all of the big hits he’s taken over the years.  He’s not the most durable quarterback.   Need NFL Tickets?...

In honor of Brian Urlacher leaving Chicago, here's Tom Brady juking him

Of course, we've all seen this video before. I feel like Brady has one of these surprisingly athletic but not really that athletic moves every year. Last year it might've been either his scramble for a TD against Buffalo or when he kicked Ed Reed in the balls, can't decide which I liked more. Anyway, Brian Urlacher is leaving Chicago after they basically told him they...

Bears sign D.J. Williams to replace Urlacher

According to Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears have signed former Broncos’ linebacker D.J. Williams to take over for Brian Urlacher. Williams was a heck of a player in Denver before he found trouble.  The Bears are now giving him a chance to turn things around. Williams, 30, was cut by the Broncos after a season in which he faced two suspensions, a six game suspension...

How Brian Urlacher’s Departure Impacts the Chicago Bears

“Lip service.” Those are the exact words Brian Urlacher used to describe the Bears’ efforts to resign him. Granted, the lack of cap space and Urlacher’s recent rash of injuries put Phil Emery in an awkward situation in terms of how to operate in contract negotiations. But this disgraceful divorce from the 13-year face of the franchise will impact the Bears in this coming...

Report: Vikings Not interested In Urlacher Unless He Lowers Asking Price

Brian Urlacher is in search of a new team after the Bears chose to part ways and not re-sign him.  Many experts figure the Minnesota Vikings would be a logical landing spot. The Vikings and Urlacher’s camp have had some initial conversations, and there seems to be mutual interest. Pro Football Talk is reporting that the interest won’t be serious until Urlacher comes down in...

Browns add TE Kellen Davis

According to Nate Ulrich if the Akron Beacon-Journal, the Cleveland Browns ave signed former Bears’ tight end Kellen Davis.

2013 NFL Free Agency: Bears Add Veteran D.J. Williams To Replace Brian Urlacher

It didn't take long for the Chicago Bears to find Brian Urlacher's replacement. On Friday, the Bears announced that D.J. Williams was signed to a one-year deal. The deal is worth $900,000 and isn't guaranteed, but Williams can earn up to $1.75 in 2013 after a series of roster bonuses. Williams spent all nine of his NFL seasons with the Denver Broncos playing inside...
