With the extent of the cap room, 20 million, that the Bears have and the recent talk of contract extensions perhaps the Bears should look into re-investing in the team throughout this season.
RB Matt Forte, 6 years 35 million/ 15 guaranteed
He is the 2nd most important player on the offense and he is a signal of some of the draft picks of Angelo that have worked out.
WR Earl Bennett, 4 years 12 million/ 4 guaranteed
Consistent and very good at his job he deserves to be paid as he is Cutler's favorite target.
S Chris Harris, 4 years 12 million/ 5 guaranteed
A leader in a young S group he brings toughness and leadership to add to his 5 picks.
DE Israel Idonidje, 3 years 9 million/ 4 guaranteed
Idonidje is the consummate Bear and a leader on this team and deserves one last contract.
CB D.J Moore, 4 years 10 million/ 3 guaranteed
Moore is signed through 2012, but he is developing into a very good nickle back which is key in the Cover 2 defense. I would like to sign him before some team pays him to be a starter.
DT Henry Melton, 3 years 9 million/ 3 guaranteed
Again a player signed through 2012 that we should try and sign before some team pays him as a starter.
OG Roberto Garza, 2 years 4 million/ 2 guaranteed
This OL will continue to make a transition and Garza is worth keeping around while the transition happens and we can move him to a backup role.
