Biggs: Bears will be players in Free Agency
Doesn’t he wish. If Angelo was to leave the organization he’s led for 11 seasons, it would be a huge story. Did he check out the Theo Epstein hiring by the Chicago Cubs? But no one inside the organization is giving the sense right now that Angelo will hang ’em up this offseason.
If he doesn’t, I took one thing away from his informal news conference before the game: He’ll be a major player in free agency and big signings could lie ahead. I’m just reading between the lines here, but follow along:
“I still want to make a run at this,” Angelo said, referring to the Super Bowl title. “You know what my goal is right now? It’s to win a championship. I would really like to do that. That’s what I am focused on.”
If Angelo does return, it’s with the knowledge that he’s not going to be in the game a whole lot longer. If he believes the Bears are close -- and with a healthy Jay Cutler and Matt Forte the only NFC team definitively better than them is the Packers -- he could go all in. OK, maybe that’s not the right term to use after the last season by a certain baseball team in town. But if Angelo truly it motivated to make a run, he’s probably going to get aggressive with player acquisitions.
