The Pineiro move makes room for Edwards.

These new PS rules are permitting Bears to not keep a kicker on the 53 man.  They can bring back Santos 3 times from the PS before he has to be released.  And it so happens that Piniero's IR stint is the same number of games:  3.

If Piniero is good to go in 3 weeks it may all work out.  Just go to hope Santos can be efficient for the first 3 games.   

But what if  Santos is better than efficient?

Might cut Pinero or IR him for the rest of the season.

I think I need to call BS:

The Chicago Bears went into the 2020 offseason searching for a quarterback to push – or replace – starter Mitchell Trubisky after the former second overall pick struggled in his third season in the NFL. While they ultimately settled on trading for Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles, they nearly found a future Hall of Fame player to take the job outright.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, who signed with the team this offseason after a legendary career in New England, reportedly was close to signing with the Bears this spring, according to sports talk host Dan Patrick.

Reporting on his own radio show, Patrick revealed the Bears were on the shortlist of teams Brady was looking to sign with.

“Did you know that the Bears were on the final, final list of teams for Tom Brady?” Patrick asked his producer.

The former NBC Football Night in America host continued:

“The final list that Brady was looking at, the Chargers, the Bears, and the Buccaneers. I was told this yesterday. I said ‘wait a minute, the Bears?’ [Source] said yes. Brady was considering the Bears, the Chargers were a long shot because of the west coast…the fact that he was considering the Bears, Chicago at least – because he wanted to be [close] in proximity to New York where his son is…but ended up taking Tampa Bay.”

Ever since rumors began circulating regarding Brady’s unhappiness in New England and his impending free agency drawing closer and closer, many pegged the Bears as a popular choice for the six-time Super Bowl winner.

When free agency finally began, the Bears were never mentioned as a destination for Brady. It’s unclear how much interest the Bears had or how hard they pushed to land him. General manager Ryan Pace reportedly was working to sign free agent quarterback Teddy Bridgewater before he chose to sign in Carolina. Brady ultimately winds up choosing Tampa Bay and the Bears make a trade for Foles to push Trubisky instead of signing one of the greatest of all time to replace him.

More and more I'm beginning to believe this Pace guy was nothing more than Peyton's personnel assistant.  Now seeing where they're not extending #12, he's pissed, and N.E. are stiffing around, Pace will probably trade him for a punter on the N.E. squad straight up.

So it's true?  The Bears are not going to offer a long term deal to A-Rob?   And he's on the block?

Wow, I guess Miller's 4th quarter, Wims TD catch and Mooney's 3 catches must have signaled that A-Rob is A-dios.

I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I'd take a hard pass on Robinson at over 20 million per year.  I think wr is the most habitually overpaid position in the NFL (along with CB).  Robinson isn't dynamic with the ball in his hands and he doesn't have that elite speed that puts pressure on defenses.  He's a great player, top 20 wr easy.  I'd love for him to stay a bear, but high teens for 3 years would be as far as I'd go.  Especially with the cap level next year being so uncertain.

Most likely they are haggling over the $.

Bears have spent a lot of cash on free agents the last few years, primarily due having to fill holes because of trading high draft picks and not hitting on the high draft picks they kept.

They have $9.5M in cap space but they are unsettled at QB.  They are going to try out Trubisky and may be setting aside money for him.  Foles deal hurts them this year and next...relief maybe in 2022.

It sucks that the Bears can't afford their top receiver.  The Packers have theirs.  The Vikings had 2 until this season.  And the Lions shelled out some bucks for Marvin Jones, but are currently enjoying Galladay's rookie deal.

Teams  are raiding our practice squad.  Eagles after giving up 8 sacks last week snatched vet guard Jamon Brown.  Cowboys got UFA LBer Rashad Smith.  Abdullah Anderson was released from the practice squad to make room for Mack's brother LeDarious.

As for the injury report:  Quinn and Mack were limited but Graham and Ginn DNP (veteran's day off).

Apparently the Bears and Robinson are only about $2 mil apart.  They better get this done.

Chump change in today's NFL unless they let 'lil Mikey back at it, in between his campaigning for Biden. See who the Bear "expert" is on nbc Chicago ? Wanny.
