Realistic Bears Offseason [In Detail]
I firmly believe that the 2nd half of the season is going to melt down and Lovie Smith is going to be fired and Jerry Angelo is going to retire.
GM Eric DeCosta [Baltimore]
He has been an understudy to Ossie Newsome and been part of a couple of great years of drafts. Jim Harbuagh’s brother John, who coaches the Ravens, would provide a connection between the two.
HC Jim Harbaugh [Stanford]
The Bears need someone with intensity and energy that can come in and energize the team and the fan base. Harbaugh runs a pro style offense, and is demanding of his QBs, which we need to get the most out of Jay Cutler.
C Olin Kreutz
DT Tommie Harris
TE Brandon Manamaluana
OT Kevin Shaffer
I believe the Bears will be active in the 2nd tier of free agents to fill many of the holes left by the Angelo draft years.
WR Braylon Edwards [NY Jets] 5 years 32 million/ 14 guaranteed
I know he is inconsistent, but he has the size 6’3” 220lbs that the Bears need and he is almost guaranteed to hit the market and be in the Bears price range.
OG/OT Ray Willis [Seattle] 4 years 15 million/ 6 guaranteed
Willis has the size [6’6” 315lbs] to play all over the Bears OL and has started at OG and RT for the Seahawks.
DT Ray McDonald [San Francisco] 5 years 20 million/ 8 guaranteed
McDonald is a pass rushing 3-4 DE for the 49ers who could play the DT position. He is very disruptive and can push the pocket.
CB Richard Marshall [Carolina] 5 years 20 million/ 12 guaranteed
Undersized, but physical and tough. He can come in and start at one CB positon.
