    Jeff Dickerson from (gag) ESPN says that he has already turned down offers from the 49'ers and Lions ........... Not enough $ so that pretty much leaves the Bears out of the running. Seymore made 15 Million last year with the Raiders. So much for that option.
    :(

    Might have to suit-up Virginia McCaskey at some point if we lose too many more DL. But isn't she almost as old as Pep?

    Unless Emery can find a hidden gem out there I don't see the passrush/d is getting back in shape any time soon.. Football sucks every now and then :/

    oh, it ain't getting any better this season, that much is certain. We are just going to have to PRAY that Emery can work a miracle (or two) this off-season. I think that it is fair to say that our 2014 Draft is going to be pretty damn important, haha!

    I'd retire if I made $15 Million last year personally.

    Bears have 27 players whose contracts expire at end of this season. Clean house enough to afford a couple free agents on defense like we did this year with Bushrod and Bennett. Add a couple DL from the draft like we did for OL with Long and Mills this year. I think that is possible, but depends on how well Emery can draft and manage the salary cap. Guys like Cutler, Hester, and peppers should get contracts structured to free up money to rebuild the defense, For example, Hester is getting a lot of money to watch kickoffs sail over his head. Relative to production, Peppers and Hester are our most overpaid players, and I enjoy watching Hester like any other Bears fan.

    DavidL, another outstanding post! You have to think that Emery is going to take full advantage of all of those expiring contracts. Surely he realizes (as we all do) that the DL basically requires a complete overhaul. (a la the OL last year).
