Well, it looks like Bears general manager Phil Emery has managed to do what Jerry Angelo couldn't. And that is provide his team with a legitimate threat at wide receiver. Someone who can be viewed as a legitimate threat, and is considered one of the top receivers in the league.
And that man is Brandon Marshall.
The Bears will trade third round draft picks in 2012 and 2013 in exchange for Marshall's services. This looks to be a bit of a steal considering how highly Marshall is rated around the league.
This will of course reunite Brandon Marshall with Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The pair played together at Denver and developed a good relationship both on and off the field.
Marshall is a multi time pro bowler, who has good size as well as excellent strength. He is an agile receiver, not afraid to catch the ball across the middle. He may not be the most explosive in terms of speed, but he has enough to gain some separation.
Getting a top receiver was definitely the Bear...
