Don’t Look Now, Bears Coaches Fawning Over Shea McClellin

Most Bears fans left him for dead after 2014.  Former 1st round draft pick Shea McClellin was coming off his third season of under producing at a second position.  He sat mired for two years at defensive end (6.5 sacks in 28 games) and then spent the last one failing to fit in at outside linebacker (38 tackles in 12 games).  There was no doubt he was destined for the cut either...

John Fox Brings Undrafted Free Agent Mastery To Bears

Scoring on the 1st and 2nd round picks are important to the success of any NFL franchise, but the best GMs and best head coaches are the ones who are able to find talent in hard-to-reach places.  That is to say undrafted free agency.  Rob Gronkowski may get the hype and notoriety in the Super Bowl, but it’s Malcolm Butler who saves the day with the game-sealing interception....
