Jerry Angelo’s 9th Best Acquisition

Muhsin Muhammed-WR-Free Agent 2005:

Muhsin Muhammad

Muhsin Muhammad

Following his departure from the Bears in 2008, Muhammed uttered a famous quote that “Chicago is where receivers go to die.” Until 2012 at least he may be correct, but even prior to the opening of free agency in 2005 Angelo pounced to sign Muhammad after his release from the Panthers for salary cap reasons. Muhammed had set a Super Bowl record for the longest touchdown reception in 2003, and in 2004 led the NFL with 16 touchdown receptions. The receiver provided solid if unspectacular play for the Bears in 2005 and 2006, as well as leadership. But by 2007 it was clear his skills were declining. Had Muhammed stuck longer and contributed more his name would be much higher on this list.

  1. An OK signing, would’ve been better with a true #1 on the other side, like CAR had w Steve Smith.
