Bears experimenting with Jordan Lynch makes no sense

Once the draft was completed on Saturday, the Bears signed a bunch including Northern Illinois Heisman candidate Jordan Lynch. To further add to the signing, the Bears announced they will try Lynch out at running back instead of his natural quarterback position.

Bears Sign FB Tony Fiammetta To Two-Year Extension

The Chicago Bears announced on Saturday that they have signed FB Tony Fiammetta to a two-year contract extension. Fiammetta, 27, was signed to a one-year deal back in June and has since played in all 15 games for the Bears this season. Fiammetta did not play at all in 2012, so the odds were against him ever securing a multi-year contract. This year he’s caught four passes for...

Bears sign FB Tony Fiammetta to extension

The Chicago Bears have signed fullback Tony Fiammmetta to a two-year extension. Ok so it’s not Jay Cutler re-signing, and truthfully it’s not even as big as the recent extension of kicker Robbie Gould but the 27-year-old has played respectably this season after sitting out for all of 2012.

Bears Release Troubled Fullback Evan Rodriguez

It’s no secret that Bears fullback Evan Rodriguez has been nothing but a knucklehead this offseason, o it should come as no surprise that the Bears are moving on without him.
