Bears sign former Packers bust Jason Spriggs

Recommended Posts

This means a draft pick. They're not going to trade a draft pick now with the draft a week away

So they would give up a draft pick, presumably a 2nd and have to sign him.  Just wait a year and keep the pick. 

Even for a 4th (idk what his price would be), and the ability to negotiate for a year, you wouldn't do it?

I'm not saying that isn't news, or thread, worthy--but why is it HERE?

I think if OJ Howard was any good, a really good offensive mind in Bruce Arians would've found a way to use him.

And Brady would be pounding the table to keep him.

Is this all a brain fart by the mods, or what? Why are we discussing Burton and O.J. Howard in a Spriggs thread?

One of the few guys out there who could be a true back up LT...very athletic so should fit in with a more zone based approach...worth a flier that's for sure.

Definitely worth a flier. LT only backup though. Probably fighting with a draft pick and UDFA or vet for a spot. 
 

A needed move to check off the OT spot pre-draft - Pace’s MO. Which is why I’m surprised he’s telegraphing drafting a TE now.
 

Curious timing on the Burton move. Maybe there’s something we don’t know about his “groin”. I don’t think he should be taking for granted his ability to get another shot.

I would 100% swing a trade for Howard right now.

I think it was more of an early season doghouse issue coupled with him being the clear 3rd best option behind 2 pro bowlers in Evans and Godwin. The last 4 games in which he played last year (3 wins and a 3 point loss, so no garbage time) he had 25 targets and he produced 16 catches and 226 yards. It’s probably not a coincidence that the last 3 games of that stretch Evans was out injured.

I didn’t want to start a new thread so I put it here.  Then people wanted to talk so I started one. Then they locked my new thread.  ☹️

That's...really weird. Brain fart, for sure.

I believe this might be happening ... unless the Organization received word that Burton is done medically.

there was a tweet this week  Jason LaCanfora iirc connecting the dots for a potential deal to Chicago
