Chicago Bears - Killer defense and brutal running game. Old is new again.

With the loss of Kush and I assume Witzmann Larson fills the swing guard spot - plus he's played a lot of center.  And Sowell, who can play G or T is still on the roster, so the O-line looks pretty well set.

Wishful thinking on my part, but I would not mind at all if the Bears sign a 1 year prove it deal to Berry and extra premium money on Houston.  Pagano seems like the type that would love to 46 a QB on his ass on multiple occasions.  That would be a Pace FA splash at this point.

I'd be very happy with Berry on a one year deal if his physicals check out.

He's played in only 3 games the last 2 years.  Wrong side of 30.  Yeah, one year deal...incentive laden.

Based on history he'll either make the pro-bowl or play in only a couple games.

Remember that old safety we signed from the Giants - Antrelle Rolle?

Strange free agency for the Bears.

We lose Amos but sign a lesser replacement for Callahan first.  Maybe they see no chance of resigning Callahan.

WE sign Patterson for $5M for basically a return guy who has never been able to see the field much as a receiver.   I"m not as confident as some that he will be a big part of Nagy's offense.
Then Tevin Coleman, the kind of back they seem to be looking for signs for $5M.

You're giving Callahan too much credit - he was hurt all the time. That's why they did not sign him. Callahan has never finished a season.

Skrine can play - he makes a lot of tackles. Great tackler.

Tevin Coleman had pretty solid stats last year.

Eric Berry has played 3 games in the last 2 years.

Still not sure why the Peckers got rid of Dix.

Clinton Dix is like the very poor man's version of Eddie Jackson. He gambles a lot to go for turnovers and big plays. I think he's about as good as Amos, but Id prefer amos' reliability (he was all over the place in the playoff game though)to pair with Jackson's risk taking.  Haha and Eddie as your safeties will result in more big plays for both sides.

From Bleacher Report:

"Bryce Callahan would've been the priority here. But Monday's deal that brought veteran slot cornerback Buster Skrine to the Windy City indicates the Chicago Bears are willing to let Callahan walk.

That's an ill-advised idea, but whatever.

The Bears also watched veteran safety Adrian Amos leave for—of all places—Green Bay. That's gotta sting.

Amos' departure might free up the money to bring back Callahan. But in any event, the safety position is now a big area of need for the Bears.

Many of the biggest names there (like Amos and Landon Collins) have already locked in lucrative deals and new homes. But whether it's a star like Earl Thomas or lower-end (and less expensive) talent such as Clayton Geathers, Tre Boston and Jahleel Addae, there's still fruit on the vine of free agency's deepest position.

It's time for the Bears to pick up some of that fruit."

I don't doubt what you say about Clinton-Dix, but that's the coach's job to put players in the right place to make plays and prevent big plays.  Can't say Packers have been doing anything well defensively for quite a while.

Larsen got into it with someone on the Bears' defensive side.  Does anyone remember?  Hicks maybe?
