Today the Chicago Tribune writes that Bears players aren’t upset with Bernard Berrian for leaving to take $42 million from the Vikings.
I personally can’t blame Berrian for going, I’d leave town for $420,000 or probably $42,000 myself. But I predict, in writing, on the permanancy of the Internet, that the Vikings will live to regret this deal. Sure, Berrian is coming off back-t0-back 100 yard games, and I hope the Bears with their depleted secondary and lack of pass rush can stop the trend. But as I said with the Bears, it’s not smart to give over $40 million to a moderately good receiver with some history of injuries when you don’t have a solid quarterback to throw to him.
