Bears sign Free Safety Bullocks

Finally breaking out of their self-imposed silent period, on Wednesday the Chicago Bears signed free agent safety Josh Bullocks to a one-year contract.  Per the Chicago Sun-Times, Bullocks will “begin competing for the starting free safety job immediately.”

Given that he’ll be competing against Craig Steltz, this is one job Bullocks better win.

Good to see the Bears do something here, but it’s safe to bet the team isn’t sold on Bullocks being the answer.  If they thought he were, they would have offered more than a one-year deal.  And it doesn’t necessarily bode well that Bullocks couldn’t get on the field with the Saints’ worst-in-the-NFL pass defense in 2008.

The Bears also launched seventh year veteran guard Terrence Metcalf on Wednesday.  Metcalf was a third-round pick that never played up to his potentialbut got rich on a six-year contract he signed in 2006.

  1. it’s Josh Bullocks. not keith.

  2. See what happens when you post at 5 a.m.? Thanks for noting my screwup. Currently removing head from rectum.

  3. In this day and age, you are lucky if your head is only up your own a**. So, Roy, it could be worse. When does minicamp start? The 18th?

  4. this could be a decent move by the bears. it doesn’t have to be a big name player , just a guy that can cover a tightend and keep a run in front of him. i kinda like the move. is cheaper than a roy williams would most likely be. i have the feeling that this team is almost there. i would like to see some defensive playcalling change. thought that the offense for most of the year overachieved with orton who showed the nation that he is not half bad.
