    Well that shoots down my thinking they were gonna hold off on Collins because of his injury. Good move. Now I'm think they may have a tentative agreement with Bennett and they're willing to let Melton go if they can't get him right. It also indicate they have at least some doubts about McCown although they had both in camp and of the roster last year too. He's the likely vet #2 if McCown doesn't come back.

    Rich Campbell thinks this does NOT affect McCown's status because it's just a 1-year/low $$$ signing.

    Puts Donald in play for the draft though.

    Palmer could be a younger version of McCown, and I like the fact that they went after Collins, indicates that Melton is not in the picture, but not completely out of the picture.

    Yeah I think McCown is gone. I hope you're right about Bennett. Collins is a good signing if he can be healthy by TC.

    I'm real glad we resigned Collins. From what I read he rehabbed super hard and I think he's got decent talent and a great motor. Still think we are better off letting Melton go and drafting his replacement. Don't know if Donald will be available but Hageman as a second choice sounds real nice too.

    probably be Donald or Jernigan, Might get Hageman in second he is sliding lately. Funny how much they change after the season is over, The so called experts either feeding a line of shit all year or forgetting how they played and putting way to much in the combine. I believe they way the senior bowl and combine to heavily. Its good to use for a smaller school prospect to see if they hold up against Div I talent but seriously moving players 20 positions in your rankings after the season. Anyway I have seen Hageman in the 40's on various big boards, He was up as high as 12 or so after the season, Not sure the Bears would double dip on the Dline but i would take either Jernigan or Donald and be really tempted to come back and snag Hageman in rd 2 if he were there.

    Seeing a lot of Bears reporters on Twitter saying that the Palmer signing is more of an insurance policy just in case McCown leaves town.
