    This article has the Bears and San Fran talking trade for RB Lemichael James.
    http://www.sportsworldreport.com/ar...-mosley-targets-for-marc-trestman-defense.htm

    To be honest, I'm not familiar with this source as I saw this posted in another forum, so I do not know if these guys really have any juice or if it's all just imaginary speculation. However, it is the first I've seen about any discussion the Bears have had with San Fransisco who owns several picks in this draft. I would be shocked if the Bears had any interest in a trade for James for a pick straight up ( why would Frisco want another late pick?), but it is evidence that they may be talking and James could a piece of a larger swap on draft day that allows the Bears to move down and get more.

    Hey, it's something to talk about.

    I'd love to add him as our primary return man and backup RB.

    If it involves trading down in the draft then thanks but no thanks.

    I would suggest that it depends on how it plays out. This may have no bearing on the first round at all, but it could play a role in the second or anywhere after that.

    SF needs a receiver. The only place they'll be looking to move up is in the first round. They may be able to get an impact receiver at #14 without having to pay as hefty a price as moving up into the top 10 would cost.

    I also don't want to help a team that we have to play in a tough game in the 2nd week of the season.

    I could be wrong, but didn't they have some fumble problems with him? Maybe I'm thinking of somebody else.

    Would love to swap 5th round picks and get James, I've been interested in his services since his draft year...according to PFT the going rate will likely be a late round pick. Definitely a return option and could be an exciting #2 rb option for Trestman

    You're thinking of Kyle Williams. ^^

    I don't mind helping a team we are going to face, because they will be helping us as well.

    San Francisco may be looking for a S also, they lost Whitner. And I would rather have the value in picks and find my own RB but I trust Emery and hopefully this will be an option when it is our time to pick that Emery has had time to mull over in advance, so I see nothing wrong with Knowing your options.
