    I'm glad to see the Bears interested in Michael Bennett, if we get him we knock out 2 positions needed and will give more flexibility going forward with the rest of the positions to be filled.

    Bears appear to be strong playas for Michael Bennett. Not sure it would be a surprise but definitely an accomplishment.

    that would be a decent sign for us, just what we need, but hes no superstar so 5 or 6 mil per year is enough

    No guarantees it will come to fruition but I'm glad Emery sees the issue clearly and is pursuing a plan to address it. The Bears have virtually nothing at DE right now. Wootton is a FA (may/may not be back) and he isn't even even cleared to practice post-surgery yet. Peppers is in severe decline and will almost assuredly be a cap casualty. Everyone else on the roster is a depth player at best. The draft is weak for DE and its looking like the only one worth the 14th pick is Clowney who'll be long gone by then. If there ever was a situation where "free agency is for filling major holes", this is it.

    Emery pretty much HAS TO sign a DE. And Bennett offers the additional benefit of being able to give you snaps inside as well. I'm not saying he's JJ Watt or anything, but he looks like the best available option we have.
