I think that Pace is really hoping to find a guy to replace Amukamara. Save the money and upgrade before he becomes a liability. 

Becomes a Liability? Pretty sure he was last year.

I don’t think he was at all. He benifited from Fuller continuing to play at a Pro Bowl level, he did not have to face as many top WRs. But he did not give up many big plays, he was still pretty consistant. 

I do agree he is slowing down some, age is catching up. Penalties are starting to be a concern, but it’s not like he cost us games, like a certain safety that is no longer here. With those concerns starting to become a thing though, I think it’s smart to prepare his replacement. 

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

Agreed, I never felt Mook was a liability of any kind last season......... hell he was still ranked in the top 25 of the league last year, sitting just outside the top 10 at number 11 on PFF's metrics.

...in 2018, and he earned a career-high grade......Amukamara allowed a passer rating of 82.9 this past season.

The Bears have waived offensive lineman Willie Beavers before the start of rookie camp. Perhaps a new industry is in consideration....

Oh, and wide receiver Cyril Grayson and offensive linemen Dejon Allen We’re waived as well.

I guess what really sticks in my mind was that 4th and long play, where he decided to intercept the pass at the 1 yard line instead of batting it down. Instead of Mitch and crew getting the ball at the opponents 45 yard line, they got the fun of starting in their own endzone. That lack of situational awareness you expect from a rookie, but not veteran. Thhat could have been a game loser in some circumstances. There were other instances where his situational awareness was faulty at best.

Just my opinion. I want to see him replaced. He was the weakest starter last season. To get better, he needs to be beaten out. I am not saying just cut him, but as a fan, I want the next young Fuller to appear. Plus, I do not think a CB his age is going to get any better. No upside.

You just wait till next year!

2020 is the year the Bears put it all together!

Go Bears!

Bears cut Adarius Pickett, Lawrence Marshall

Posted by Charean Williams on May 6, 2019, 12:00 AM EDT
The Bears not only waived two kickers, but defensive back Adarius Pickett and defensive end Lawrence Marshall also got bad news Sunday.

Pickett and Marshall, like kicker John Baron II, didn’t last long in Chicago. The three signed with the Bears last week as undrafted free agents. Kicker Redford Jones, who also was waived Sunday, joined the team Jan. 28.

The Bears filled two of the roster spots with undrafted free agents who tried out for the team during their rookie minicamp.

Offensive lineman Tommy Doles and defensive end Jalen Dalton have joined the 90-man roster, the Bears announced.

Doles started at right guard for Northwestern the past three seasons.

Dalton appeared in 37 games the past four years at North Carolina, making 92 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 15 tackles-for-loss, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He made a career-high 3.5 sacks in seven games.

****

Aw, Man!......Wait? What? Who?

You just wait till next year!

2020 is the year the Bears put it all together!

Bears sign Jesper Horsted, waive Tommy Doles

Posted by Josh Alper on May 13, 2019, 11:57 AM EDT

The Bears signed guard Tommy Doles last week after he tried out for the team at their rookie minicamp, but his stay with the team turned out to be a brief one.

Doles was waived on Monday to make room for another player who attended the minicamp on a tryout basis. The Bears announced that they have signed Jesper Horsted to their 90-man roster.

Horsted is listed as a tight end, but played wide receiver at Princeton. He was also on the baseball team during his time at the Ivy League school.

Horsted was very productive as a receiver over his final two college seasons. He caught 164 passes for 2,273 yards and 27 touchdowns.

Wild that Pace never stops. Potentially already has one of the best stacked WR corps in the league, still signing more. 

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

Bears bring back OL Tommy Doles

Posted by Josh Alper on May 16, 2019, 11:42 AM EDT

The Bears waived offensive lineman Tommy Doles earlier this week when they signed tight end Jesper Horsted, but an injury to another player opened the door for Doles to return to the team.

The Bears announced on Thursday that they have re-signed Doles. Defensive back Jomon Dotson was waived/injured in the team’s other move.

Dotson signed with the Bears after going undrafted last month. Dotson closed out his collegiate time at Nevada after transferring from the University of Washington.

Doles was also an undrafted free agent signing this offseason. He played his college ball nearby at Northwestern University and was a three-year starter at right guard for the Big Ten team.

You just wait till next year!

2020 is the year the Bears put it all together!

Go Bears!
