  1. Bears to pick up Leonard Floyd's 5th year option

    Windy like you say maybe a 5 year 50M with 30M guaranteed? You give him a 12.5M signing bonus so he has up to that much in new money plus lower yearly salaries for 2019/20?
  2. I don't know personally if Mahomes will regress but he had a hell of a season. As to whether he will be or deserves to be the league's first 200M QB the jury is still out. If he puts up similar numbers he will definitely be in the discussion.
  3. NFL considering reviewing PI calls

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25818681/nfl-again-discuss-reviewing-pass-interference-calls This is already a controversial subject. It will be interesting. METAIRIE, La. -- The NFL will discuss this offseason whether to make pass-interference penalties reviewable, a source confirmed in the wake of the infamous no-call that helped decide Sunday's NFC Championship Game. However, that has already been a big topic of discussion for the past several years within the NFL's competition committee -- with coaches such as the New Orleans Saints' Sean Payton and the New England Patriots' Bill Belichick among many longtime advocates for expanded replay.
  4. 2019 Draft: Targets

    I think we should look at a guard in the 3rd or 4th round. With Heistand we can afford to look in the later rounds but I like a couple of interior linemen in the 2nd/3rd round. Obviously we don't have a 2nd round pick.
  5. Senior Bowl Week

    I will be keeping an eye on Erik McCoy. I like him in the draft to replace Long in 1-2 years. He has a 3rd round grade but could go as high as the 2nd. He has C/G.
  6. 2019 Draft: Targets

    Would anyone trade our 4th this year and our 2020 2nd to move up into the 2nd this year?
  7. Bears interested in Kareem Hunt?

    I agree as much as we have galvanized assault and stalking. This was something where alcohol or something probably pushed emotions past the boiling point. But it does not look like an incident that will keep festering. Hunt has incredible skills receiving & running. We just need to wait.
  8. Wow, he may be the first 200M in NFL history. Chiefs are aiming real high. Does that mean if Trub becomes a top 5 QB y fhe end of his 4th season he is due for an identical mammoth raise? Chiefs are planning this for Mahomes after only his 3rd season!!
  9. Bears interested in Kareem Hunt?

    As a precursor to exploring a K Hunt signing how much can we get for Howard in a trade? A 3rd or at most a 4th?
  10. 2019 Draft: Targets

    My 4 picks 1. 3rd round pick 88 as of 20 Jan 19. With our pick we select Erik McCoy Teaxas A&M, who is 6.4 & 315 lbs. McCoy is as talented and well rounded as any interior offensive linemen in this class. He can play power or zone systems and pass and run block at a high level. He should step right into the league and start for a team from day one. With Heistand to coach him he should be able to replace Long as early as 2020. Long can then switch to swing guard. McCoy has a 2nd round grade in some mocks and that will depend on the Senior Bowl & Combine reports. We beef up the right side and will address a backup center in round 5. 2. 4th round pick 120 as of 20 Jan 19. Pace has done incredibly well in the middle rounds and we select Cameron Smith from USC as an ILB. He is 6.2 and weighs 254 lbs. Smith is a solid inside linebacker who is a good run defender. He has improved his pass-coverage skills, but he is a bit stiff and slow to cover for the NFL. Smith will need more development to become a pro three-down starter. In 2018, he has 81 tackles with 7.5 for a loss and four passes broken up. He can be coached up by Glen Pires to be a 2-3 down starter by 2020. 3. 5th round pick 152 as of 20 Jan 19. We select Connor McGovern who is a C from Penn State. He is 6.5 and weighs 315 lbs. He gets into position and lines up trap blocks well with his understanding of the play’s development and also fights well with excellent hand placement to go along with nice choppy feet. He is not overpowering by any means but he is very quick out of his stance and wins with leverage and speed on interior blocks. McGovern can anchor down but he can still be moved off his spot and needs to add more thickness to his frame to maximize his potential. Another project for Heistand. 4. 7th round pick 216 we select JR Reed from Georgia who is a S (Hope he really slides to become a monster on ST). He is 6.1 and weighs 205 lbs. Plays with excellent controlled aggression. Sure tackler who throttles down and comes to balance, yet plays with active feet. Adjusts angles to the ball as needed. Good reads and fills against the run. Runs the alley with no hesitation. Strong identification of routes breaking in his zone and takes good angles to the football. Closing burst to the ball flashed several times in coverage. Patient in his footwork, reads receivers’ hips and reacts quickly. Sharp mental processor who is rarely caught out of position. Tough, physical and plays with an non-stop motor
  11. 2019 free agency targets

    We also need to remember we get back a 2.5M credit for Glennon due to offset language when he signed with Arizona.
  12. Bears to pick up Leonard Floyd's 5th year option

    I agree and it needs to be a fair extension amount to avoid putting too much money in 1 position group.
