    Don't know but a shoulder injury for a Safety isn't a good thing and 4-5 months just for recovery means the end of July to the end of August so he'll miss all of the OTAs and maybe all of the preseason as well if that estimate is right. So how does he get ready to play or is the strategy here to end up on the IR or release him with an injury settlement and he moves on? Think he see the handwriting on the wall?

    As horribly bad as Conte was, he is still better than the other guys I named. I was hoping the Bears would take a Safety at #14 WITH Conte healthy so we wouldn't have to start him either. Now that he's injured I think it's an absolute MUST to hopefully get either Clinton-Dix or Pryor early.

    He knows his abilities. He understands that it only really takes one shoulder to play like he did last year. He'll be able to pick up right where he left off. We're good

    Probably feels that he stands a better shot of getting a shot at another team if Mundy and MD Jennings don't beat him out of the starting/backup jobs. :)

    Fair enough. I just wondered if you were being facetious or not. I wonder if this thread will go on as long as the "flogging thread" did.

    Now I feel bad that I started that. :(

    This is one of those rare situations that after a hard fought battle to determine the very best the team has to offer..... you still lose....

    Could they have kept this news under wraps until AFTER the draft? No sense letting the league know we are in more dire straits than necessary.
