Is Chicago Bears DE Jared Allen the next big name NFLer to take a pay cut?

After leading his team to a third-consecutive AFC West title, a 12-4 record and the No. 2 seed in the conference, Peyton Manning was asked to take a pay cut; that’s a huge piece of humble pie for a quarterback who is 38-10 since taking over in Denver. But the Broncos needed salary cap help, so their highest-paid player was the leading candidate to provide them some much-needed...

To Build For Future, Bears Could Struggle For A Few Years

Ryan Pace has already done so much in his short tenure as Bears General Manager. However, the biggest decisions are yet to come. What do you do with Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Jared Allen? I could list every player here. Bears management has to ask themselves: who is going to be on this roster in three years? They can safely say Fuller, Long, and Jeffery, but after that every...

The Chicago Bears Have Rebuilt Quickly Before

Before addressing the dreaded “R-word” it’s important to clarify why it’s being brought up in the first place.  The Bears finished last season 5-11.  Was it all on the players?  No but teams don’t finish with those kinds of records without having issues with personnel.  In this case the Bears are simply too old.  Hub Arkus of Chicago Football put it crystal clear perspective...
