Second, connections are always important when trying to predict free-agent movement. Mebane has two critical associations with the Bears. The man that drafted him in Seattle, Tim Ruskell, is now the Bears' vice president of player personnel. And the Bears' new defensive line coach, Mike Phair, spent the past six seasons with the Seahawks.
If we re-sign AA, and it seems as if we will, there isn't any real need for Mebane. I'm with Ric. I'd just go at it with AA and Toe this year and spend the FA dollars elsewhere. Especially now that we've drafted Paea. NT is just not tha big a need.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap.
