I'm not saying it is the case with Fuller, but some players do turn it up a notch when they are in a contract year, which now Fuller is in.  Just saying...

Then they can sue the league for making them take foreign substances

Player option.  I wasn't saying that the league should encourage it, what I meant was that during a significant injury a player can take PEDs to recover, if they choose to do so.  Perhaps a minimum time out of 8 weeks, just throwing stuff on the wall, but the product will then be tested for and you can not play until it is out of your blood.

That's life in NFL free agency.  Bears know Fuller - this is the 3rd year he's been with Fox/Fangio.

That's probably why Pace likes to "rent" players for only a year rather than signing incoming free agents to multi year deals.

Jeffery wasn't interested in remaining a Bear. I don't think he ever got over the Bears cutting Marshall. Looks like Jeffery is playing decently with the Eagles. $14 mil worth? I dunno..

Bears are releasing WR Tanner Gentry today per source. They hope to bring him back Monday.

He talks about second throw, that could also be on the receiver. Trubisky has had little help from the receivers. I think he's (Trubisky) looked good..

 I'm for bringing back Alshon if he stays healthy this year with the Eagles. I'd also like to take a swipe at DeVante Adams of GB. Happy Thanksgiving to all on this board!

I think Jeffrey made it clear he doesn't want to be a bear.

Was it a Bears thing, or was it a shitty QB thing?

Probably a combination thing.

It was also a money thing.   Bears could have tagged his a$$.

But you see if a Bears player has a year of injuries even though he's been healthy most of the rest of his career - they hold it against him.

Matthew Stafford is something else.  But did you know his rookie season where he played 10 games and completed 53% of his passes?  Threw for 13 TDs in those 10 games along with 20 picks.   Rating 61.
