    This is a short article, but it makes a couple of good points. This was interesting: "The thing to remember about the free agency periods is that they are not about finding superstars. Signing players is about depth, getting talent to fill roster spots at a reasonable price. It will be the draft where Emery makes his money finding the stars. "

    LOL, and Angelo & Lovie were not really let go. We just "retooled" them.

    The bills are expected to let Alex Carrington walk...I wouldn't mind seeing him in a bears uni. He can play end or tackle....very versatile.

    Earl Mitchell is another young guy who could play d tackle for us and could come cheaply on the free agent market.

    Well, this is good news. Back in 2010 I actually wanted the Bears to draft that kid. Great size, strong and very versatile.

    And, going to disagree again. Its not a rebuild, we still have an intact core of vets (especially offense). How many rebuild teams have a Pro-bowl capable QB, WR duo AND RB?

    We are definitely shifting to a younger team, but its not the dreaded R word.

    we aren't rebuilding the entire team, just the D. And yes when you have 6 guys left on 1 side of the ball...it's a rebuild.

    unfortunately it definitely looks like a defensive rebuild. Offense looks fine, only minor tweaks but D.... gah!

    With so many contracts expiring and Cutler's bloated figure, I hope Emery has his wheeler-dealer hat on, he's going to be very busy!
