Yesterday the Bears cut fifth-year defensive end Mark Anderson and signed former Saint Charles Grant from the UFL. Bit of a surprise to me, but not much fretting. Yes, Anderson tallied 12 sacks his rookie season, and has done virtually nothing since. It was time to move on.
In non-Bears news today, however, comes the real shocker. Apparently the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to a trade and new contract with receiver Randy Moss. This one is a shocker to me. It really shows that the Vikings are desperate to try to squeeze one more title out of the ancient one before his body falls apart. And you never know-this may work out for them. But it also may not, as the lack of a wide receiver to me was only one of the Viking problems that led to a 1-2 start.
