Patriots expected to cut OT Nick Kaczur

Nick Kaczur appears to be done as a New England Patriot.
Kaczur, a former regular starter on the Patriots’ offensive line who missed the entire 2010 season, has likely played his last down with the team, the Boston Herald is reporting.
According to the report, the Patriots approached Kaczur and asked him to take a massive pay-cut from his 2011 salary of $3.4 million. Kaczur declined.
So the Patriots, who were just fine without Kaczur in 2010, will move on without Kaczur going forward. And Kaczur will look for a team that’s willing to make him a starter, and pay him accordingly.
Alright, Should the Bears go after him? He's been in the league since 2005. He suffered a back injury, but he still could be a good starter for the Bears.

He has serious injury issues and was not great to start.
This is a minor upgrade over Frank Omiyale and is not what the Bears need.
Seems to me that the guy is an undersized RT with an injury history. While he's started most games he's played in he's also missed quite a few over the years. If he was healthy and all that valuable I doubt the Pats would have asked him to take such a pay cut. He may get starters money somewhere but he's not who the Bears need.
Arguing on the internet is like winning the special olympics, even if you win your still messed up. Restore the roar!
