As I’ve written before, I’m probably nuts, but for some reason I am excited for the 2010 Bears’ prospects. The additions of Julius Peppers and Chester Taylor, most notably, surprised me, and told the world that the Chicago Bears are in WIN NOW mode.
So if the Bears truly want to win now, if the St. Louis Rams and safety OJ Atogwe can’t work out a deal by midnight tonight, they would be crazy not to pursue him. Yes, the Bears drafted Major Wright and traded for Chris Harris, moves I loved, but think about where this team would be with a player like Atogwe in the secondary, especially given that 2010 is an uncapped year.
12 hours from now, we’ll know.
