    Unless Chicago luck happens and he turns to shit (I hope not) then he must be blamed!

    Didn't want to get my hopes up too high. The fish can often wiggle off the hook last minute.

    I had a feeling that might happen. I guess we'll know for sure soon.

    Rumored 4 years at 8 mill per for Bennett from Seattle. Bears rumored to be offering more.

    I hope the new rumors are BS becaue if the offer is what he wants then he can sign today with the Seahawks. Get it over with and don't string the Bears and your brother along.

    Family ties only go so far. String along whoever you need to in order to soak every possible penny out of where you want to go

    On Michael Bennett: He spent time in the Seahawks facility yesterday. Wants to return. SEA pushing hard. Bears turning attention elsewhere

    Seattle is favorite to land DE Michael Bennett, who some regard as the top free agent available. Announcement could come as early as today.

    Seahawks are confident internally they'll be able to push the Michael Bennett deal over the goal line. Mutual motivation to get it done.


    The waiting time is killing me..
