The next morning the Patriots who he had no contact with prior to called up and offered him what he wanted was 14 and he signed immediately .
Now considering how pace since the season ended was making the rounds claiming how the bears had money and would be aggressive it doesnt seem as though they were serious .
Now the free agency is a risk as evidenced by the injuries of our own free agents from last year but its already a little off putting for DB to be a need when we have used 4 picks on Dbs the last 2 drafts and still the need became even greater and instead of filling it for the next 3-4 years we bargained shop offering prove it deals to fringe guys and now the draft comes up and its DB heavy
I dont think its a overreaction to be extremely disappointed in the direction so far
Agree, do not disgaree with a single point here.
