    Not trying to sound negative, but let's not forget that there are 31 other teams involved in Free Agency as well. Just because the Bears have X amount of $$ to pick up a DL or DE or Safety, that doesn't mean that player is going to choose the Bears over all the other teams. Sometimes we get too biased (like who wouldn't want to play for the Bears??) but the reality is, there are other cities and teams that are attractive for better reasons as well.

    Not sure what one has to do with the other. Tuck, while he may have had 11 sacks he was nonexistent for 9 games this season. 4 of his sacks came against Washington. The choice wasn't between tuck or peppers it was between tuck and Joseph...I'll take Joseph.

    Fine by me too db70. If we take one of those guys or any good 3T, I hope we follow it up by drafting a big DT to play next to him.

    BearJim,

    Justin Ellis DT 6'2" 343 lbs. Looks like a fifth rounder there for us.

    There ya go. I've heard a bit about him from LA Tech? We need a guy that can hold their ground when double teamed so guys like Melton, Donald or Jernigan can make big plays when singled up. JJ, I usually don't put too much stock into the combine but Donald had a great day today, after a great week at the Senior Bowl. If he's there at 14 & we keep the pick, he'd be hard to pass up.

    If Emery can do with Defense what he did with Offense in one year ...

    we are in the hunt with Seattle and Frisco , Carolina should be handled ,

    Green Bay an afterthought.
