Yeah. Good bye. Never wanted him. He's going to the Jets. That should tell you all you need to know. I certainly wouldn't want to pay him $13M a year.

Probably to make room for Bell if his price dropped. Hey. Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix is available. I mean...he sucks. But then the Packers and the Bears would have effectively swapped SS's.

dunno man, pace has always been high on taking care of our guys who play well and deserve it. you gotta think callahan would be gone by now unless he was being stashed for some monster trade coming up. you have to think other teams enquired about him over amos.

next couple days are gonna be wild, whatever plays out, BEAR DOWN.

With Bell now off the market, the bears can’t be done in the running back department. Sounds like Ingram is heading to the ravens(thank you baby Jesus). Coleman and Yeldon are still available and would fit very nicely in Nagy’s offense.

WTF is up with the bears backfield? Is Howard going to be a bear? Are they going to draft a back? It can’t be Davis although they’re paying him like it might be. This suspense is driving me bonkers.

Some of that cap should go to securing some of their own so they don’t hit these crazy markets next season.

Wasn't meant to be. At least he signed with the Jets and not either within the conference or the division.

It'll be interesting to see what Pace does with the cap money freed up by restructuring Mack's deal.

Bell would have been fun and an injection of excitement, but the salary ramifications would have been bad in the long run for us. Look how the Patriots plug and play RBs and refuse to get caught in the trap of getting screwed by a high price tag by them. We need to model after that and do the same.

From what I heard from watching NFL Network, ESPN and reading online, the Bears were not even in the mix. They reported that the Ravens were just watching as well and not active like some others reported.
