2020 Chicago Bears
« on: March 17, 2020, 11:53:11 am »
FA starts tomorrow...

So far, we are adding Robert Quinn and Jimmy Graham, and parting ways with Leonard Floyd.

Still waiting for news on a backup QB...Keenum and Mariota have signed elsewhere, as has Bridgewater...

5 years $70M for a 30 year old pass rusher....insane.  So is paying Leonard Floyd $13M for one season.   

I'm not as much down on Jimmy Graham as I am his contract.

Draft picks are gold.   FA fools gold.

So I guess the Bears will now add Can Newton to the list of potential QBs.

He's had the absolute living hell beaten out of him, he's not the man he once was, but hell, who is? I think Foles would want a ton of money, supebowl mvp and all, and that money could go for
some really good guys up front that have a couple of years left. That line at the end was a sieve.

Aren't Dalton, Foles and Newton all under contract?   Which means not only do you have to give up a draft choice but you have to pickup their 2020 salary and beyond.

Cam Newton is on the books for $18M for 2020.

Nick Foles is on the books for $15M the next 2 years and $20M in 2022.

Andy Dalton is on the books for 2020 for over $17M.

Maybe the Bears should be getting draft choices!  I'm thinking these guys could be cut...at least Newton and Dalton.

SCORE is reporting the Bears offered the same money to Bridgewater as the Panthers but he doesnít want to compete with Trubisky

Dang:

Washington has agreed to terms with its second linebacker of the week.

They came to an agreement to re-sign Jon Bostic on Monday and the agents for Kevin Pierre-Louis told Ian Rapoport of NFL Media that their client agreed to terms with Washington on Tuesday. Itís a one-year deal worth up to $3.45 million.

Pierre-Louis spent last season with the Bears and played a leading role on special teams while also playing 20 percent of the teamís defensive snaps. He had 37 tackles and an interception in those appearances.

Pierre-Louis has also played for the Seahawks, Chiefs and Jets since entering the league as a fourth-round pick in 2014.

Washington has also reached agreements with guard Wes Schweitzer and cornerback Kendall Fuller since the negotiating window opened on Monday.

I don't mind the Quinn signing. He's an upgrade from Floyd. Having Mack and Quinn on the ends with Hicks and Goldman in the middle is a top 5 line.

Trading for Newton wouldn't bother me because the Panthers have blown their leverage.
They aren't going into the season with both Cam and Bridgewater's salaries, so the price has hit rock bottom.

Offer them a 5th round pick and the good news that they won't have to pay the man...
If he's healthy and productive, we can talk new contract extension, if he's a shell of his former self the contract is up and it's cap money for next year's pile.

So what do the Raiders do with Carr now? And the 9ers were hoping for Brady too. Both situations scream questions. I sure wouldnt get in a hurry signing Newton. And I am sure the Bungholes dont want to have Dalton on the roster in 2020. Just too much uncertainty right now. A 5th for Newton...next year, I might bite.

I guess the Raiders and the 49ers will just have to make do with two QBs that had ratings over 100 in 2019.
