    By Mike North

    The Chicago Bears signed safety Adrian Wilson to a one-year deal, and I think it sends an ominous signal to Bears fans. If this signing was a few years back, it would be considered an upgrade.

    Instead, they have signed a player near the end of his career.

    Wilson, a five-time Pro Bowl safety, has many accomplishments in the NFL, having played 12 seasons, started 162 games, and collected 893 tackles to go with 27 interceptions. But after signing a three-year deal with the New England Patriots, Wilson missed the 2013 season with a torn Achilles tendon.

    Maybe Wilson can bounce back, but what does that tell you about the defense when you sign a guy who is on the downside? It means the Bears need to score lots of points this year to win.

    The Bears defense has made some positive changes, but in this day NFL passing attacks, the secondary is more important than ever.

    It used to be the safety was the last line of defense, and not only against the pass but also the run. The NFL game is different now, though.

    This signing could turn out to be a good gamble for the Bears without much to lose. With safeties like Chris Conti, Craig Steltz or Ryan Mundy, I guess the approach now is the more the merrier.

    But with the loss of strong safety Major Wright to free agency, look for fourth-round pick Brock Vereen to be the odds-on favorite for the job.

    Yes, the Bears safety position is far from settled, and look for more potential safeties to walk through the door.

    I had to post this for one reason and one reason alone. I don't live in Chicago and I can't catch his radio show so it's not every day I get a chance to take a shot at Mike North. The Bears have a lot of media idiots reporting on them but IMHO Mike North is the biggest moron in the entire bunch.

    I'm 100% certain his football knowledge was jammed up his ass and that he's sitting on it 100% of the time. So here's one more example of how he completely misreads the Bears situation at Safety and misinterprets the reason for bringing in Adrian Wilson. Hell, Steve Roserant is a football mensa compared to Mike North. What scares me is some fans actually believe this asshat knows what he talking about.

    There are so many things wrong here I'm not sure where to start so I'll let you all do that. If there's a bigger Turd (with a capital T) reporting on the Bears I haven't found him. Hub Arkush has more on the ball than Mike North and that's not saying a whole lot.

    Wow, I didn't even realize Mike North was still around. He still has a radio show?! What station actually picked him up?

    When I was reading this article, all I'm thinking is, "Wow, words and ideas are not Mike North's friends."

    This is awful commentary on the situation with picking up Wilson.

    Well he used to be on The Score I thought but now I don't know. I saw a video rant he did a week or two ago but don't recall the source. Is the Daily Herald so hard up for writers that they dipped this low for North? Maybe I should apply for a job.

    What gets me is does the guy even listen to what the coaching staff is saying or is he reading stuff that's posted on the Bears official site for all to see? Mundy has all but been named the starting SS. At the very least he's numero uno on the depth chart heading to camp. So what's this about Vereen????? :duh:

    Vereen has been playing FS all throughout the OTAs and mini camp and yet North thinks he's the odds on favorite to replace Major Wright at SS. And this in an article about the Bears signing Adrian Wilson whose also a SS. A guy like North commenting on the Bears being his team actually embarrasses me. I hope the rest of the country doesn't think most Bears fans are as much of a moron as this guy. :36 11 18[1]:
