I guess there is a lot of clamoring from Bears fans that the team needs to jump into the fray and land some big names as other teams are doing. Let’s remember, a lot of the teams out there that are spending big money are going to regret doing so. And unlike last year, there is again a salary cap, so money has to be spent wisely.
I don’t have links to everything, but today’s activity:
Here’s your big splash, and it officially ends Brad Maynard’s tenure, as the Bears have signed a new punter to a five year contract.
They have cut TE Brandon Manumaleuna, Greg Olsen is apparently on the block, and have reportedly signed TE Matt Spaeth. Manumaleuna earned $6 million in his one year missing blocks. Wow.
The Detroit Lions have signed WR Rashied Davis. Heck of a motor on special teams, his hands will NOT be missed as a receiver.
The San Francisco 49ers have made an offer to C Olin Kreutz. The Bears’ offer to Kreutz may have been insulting. We’ll see how this one plays out.
