    He certainly won't be back with that attitude.

    Not sure what his "attitude" is in this case, if the Bears do not seem interested in re-signing him, then he is only voicing his opinion on the matter, nothing more.

    Doesn't seem like any team is interested in signing him at the moment. He's gonna have to wait until he's cleared.

    Nobody will sign him until it gets more clear on his injury situation. Would love to see him back in chi but if not it won't be the end of the world

    Signing Izzy on top of also signing guys like Scott and Lane as backup depth pretty much says the Bears are moving on from Wootton. He's never been mentioned as one they'd like to have back. Up 'til now Emery could have hid behind the surgery/recovery excuse but after signing Izzy I just don't see it. I'm still trying to figure out what he did or didn't do that made him expendable.

    Why even mention him if you don't have too? Why create a market or effect a potential market when you don't have to? As for what he has or has not done...one thing he has not done is stay healthy. While he played all 16 games last year he was once again injured...that could play a role. I like Wooton a lot and would like to see him back...but I don't understand the rush to resign a guy when there is nobody else even bringing him in for a visit.

    What he "did" was get hurt, have an operation, and not have the expectation of medical clearance until June at the earliest from what I've read. It sucks for him but no one can rely upon him for several months yet so contingency plans (like Izzy) have to be made. He probably won't be back with the Bears but it's still possible.

    Well it had to be done but I guess he thought his position with the Bears was more secure than it was. It's probably not much different than the surgeries Marshall has had but Wootton doesn't have the pull Marshall does as far as job security. I'd still like to see him come back and be given a shot at making the team though. I love the thought of having the DE who ended Brett Favre's career.
