The Chicago Tribune reports today that the Bears have indeed made an offer to running back Chris Brown, and that he will make a decision in the next five days.
Brown is a fairly accomplished veteran, having rushed for over 1,000 yards with the Titans in 2004, so I think he would make a very safe alternative to Cedric Benson.? But my reaction was huh?? Because I can’t remember a team keeping four running backs and two fullbacks on their roster.? Surely the Bears won’t be releasing Adrian Peterson or Garrett Wolfe.
So I found www.profootballtalk.com’s take on this interesting:
“We still can’t figure out why the Bears want him — maybe there’s something that none of us know about regarding one of the other guys on the depth chart.”
