I read his scouting report and was surprised - he's definitely not the one cut runner that Howard is.

There's room on the roster for Howard, Davis, Tarik and a drafted rookie.

Well based on that tape we know who Trubisky's favorite dump off player is going to be.

Also, just because the Bears inked these players to fill holes doenst mean their positions are eliminated from draft needs.

"Skrine, an eight-year veteran who will be 30 in April, landed a three-year deal worth $16.5 million, with $8.5 million guaranteed, NFL Network reported."

This position looks to have moved up the board to 3rd round. Age 30? Wow, Pace was desperate. A 3 yr deal for a 30 year old sounds desperate to me. And Toliver is no slot corner.

Looks like we are going to spend this money on a safety....

"The Bears converted $13 million of Khalil Mack’s base salary and roster bonus into a signing bonus, creating $11 million in salary-cap space, according to ESPN.

What it means: The Bears positioned themselves to potentially make a bigger signing with the added cap space available after restructuring Mack’s contract, and the move doesn’t affect what Mack is paid either. After agreeing to deals with nickel cornerback Buster Skrine and running back Mike Davis on Monday night, the Bears still have the need for a starting safety, a potential running back replacement for Jordan Howard, a backup edge rusher and maybe another target for quarterback Mitch Trubisky at wide receiver or tight end."

Maybe the Bears need to sign ex-Packer Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

The Bears are hard after Leveon Bell in case you haven't heard.  That will require a lot of cap.

I had not heard that - that would be amazing.

In that case I'd be more than OK with Devin Bush and a 3rd or 4th round rookie competing for Amos' SS spot.

But how do the Bears outspend the Colts with their $100M cap?

Packers are giving former Bears’ safety Adrian Amos a 4-year, $37 million deal that includes $14 million in year one and $21 million in first two years of deal, per source.

From Brad Biggs of the Trib:

How quick do you think they will get the safety position figured out? — @bigern173

Things started fast on Monday with Landon Collins and Tyrann Mathieu each scoring deals that average $14 million per year. Then, Lamarcus Joyner got a deal in place from the Raiders. If the Bears are looking to sign a safety at their price – and there are plenty of experienced options available – that may require some time. Understand that you’re not going to get a player to sign a deal at your price, or real close to your price, a few hours after the negotiating window opened. I wouldn’t be worried. Have a little patience and see this thing through.

The way they rushed the Mack deal you would think they had a hottie ready to sign.

I read somewhere the 6 teams Bell is deciding between DONT include the Bears.  We shall see.

The Jets have been the most linked to team for a Bell for a bit now. The other three, Ravens, Texans, and Bills, would be much less splashy. But that does not mean he wouldn’t bolster they play, as well. The Texans, in particular, make sense as a team that could cut Lamar Miller and upgrade the position with those savings.

If any other team was to get involved, the Chicago Bears could be that team. Sneakily enough, they created some cap room today converting Khalil Mack’s base salary.

I heard the bears are still after Bell on the SCORE this morning....what ever that's worth.

Amos makes me yawn.....didn't do much Jackson made him look better.
