    I still think they plan on drafting a DE, not sure when with the other needs but maybe they have there eye on a small school prospect nobody has even heard of for a late round surprise.

    Welcome back Izzy. It's another guy to add to the unclear DL. Hopefully he has some gas left and can contribute in a rotation and always was a good st guy.

    Izzy is a good insurance policy at the least. Rotate him in and keep everyone rested / fresh. I like it a lot.

    For the three years prior to 2013 the guy had 20.5 sacks and 103 solo tackles. Those are some pretty good numbers for a guy who was primarily a utility guy in a DL rotation Benji. We'd have been one hell of a lot better off with him last year than we were without him.

    Maybe it's YOU who don't remember that he was better than YOU think he was. :smilebig:

    Or maybe I am just seeing how bad he was last year.

    I am sure his 11 tackles and .5 sacks would have done wonders for the Bears

    Could be MP. One thing for certain is that Emery is not gonna make the mistake of not have enough experienced quality depth on that defense again this year. In addition to the guys he has last year, and Houston and Young, there's also Lane and Scott and now Izzy. All guys who go 6'6" and 270lbs or so no more mini me DEs like McClellin playing on the left side. I doubt all three will make the roster and if he does bring Wootton back that's 4 6'6" 270lb guys. Good competition come camp.

    Screw last year Benji. He never started a game in Detoilet and barely saw the field. You aren't seriously suggesting those stats had anything to do with his prior performance as a Bears or even what it may have been playing here last year at LDE in place of mini me McClellin are you? He's in great high effort guy, always keeps himself in shape, and loves playing for the Bears. What more do you want.

    You gotta stop looking at limited crap like that as the only thing you base your opinions or decisions on. I'm sure Phil Emery didn't so what's up with you. You post sarcastic crap like this that has no relevance what so ever and then you wonder why I get pissed at you and tell you you're an idiot?

    You been posting like this for about 8 years. I would have thought you'd have gotten wiser by now. :10_9_137[1]:

    I think it's because he won't even be ready to do anything until June/July. I was hoping he'd be back though cause i've always been a Wootton Fan.

    whatever soul.

    I still think there is a good chance he doesn't even make the team out of camp
