Expert Sees Brilliance In Bears Signing Pernell McPhee

Most of the focus of late has centered on the six new additions to the Chicago Bears roster via the NFL draft, particularly wide receiver Kevin White and his infectious enthusiasm to show why the team got a steal in him with the 7th overall pick.  Buzz has already started building on what he can do in the offense, but it also overshadows earlier moves made by GM Ryan Pace in free...

Bears take methodical approach to free agency

Entering the third full week of NFL free agency, it’s apparent the Chicago Bears are selective and picky buyers, bucking the league wide trend of spending lavishly to add talent to the roster. New Bears General Manager Ryan Pace’s lone luxury purchase in the annual shopping spree was former Baltimore OLB Pernell McPhee. McPhee, though a situational pass rusher for the [...]

Chicago Bears sign OLB Pernell McPhee

McPhee was a risky signing this off-season. On one hand, he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ #2 ranked 3-4 outside linebacker in 2014 despite playing just 540 snaps. He was 2nd in the NFL behind only JJ Watt with 21 quarterback hits. He’s not a one year wonder as that type of player either as he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 3rd ranked defensive tackle as a 5th round...

Ravens OLB Pernell McPhee Generating “A Lot Of Interest”

Vaughn McClure mentions that it sounds like Ravens free agent OLB Pernell McPhee is going to be “a lot more costly than expected.” According to McClure, there is “a lot of interest” in McPhee around the league right now. Jason Cole of the Bleacher Report previously mentioned that the Ravens are likely to allow McPhee to reach the open market, and sign with a team...

I hate to see the Ravens lose Pernell McPhee to free agency…

McPhee has improved so much at DE/OLB since being drafted in the 5th round in 2011 that now the Ravens probably can’t afford to keep him… The Ravensa have been reluctantly breaking up the old gang of defensive linemen and OLB’s over the past 5 seasons— affordability is the main issue. I don’t blame Pernell McPhee for wanting to get paid market value. He’s almost 27...

The case for Pernell McPhee to Pittsburgh

OLB Pernell McPhee was a terror for opposing offenses in 2014. The man was constantly reaching the quarterback and making plays for his team, the Baltimore Ravens. The 26 year old no doubt has talent, and I believe his abilities could be of big use for the Steelers. Let’s be real here for a second. Can the Steelers actually afford him? My answer is a doubtful maybe. A four year...
