Now that the Super Bowl is over, the 2015 season has come to a close, and the 2016 season begins on March 9 (that is also the free agency start date). If you look at the Bears transaction report, you will see that all of our players were pulled off of the IR (and that is a lot of productive guys).
It is now time for a sh1tload of NFL players to lose their jobs and try to scurry around for another shot. This year isn’t any better or worse than any other year, it is just that time of year.
Players who have proven themselves can now begin to shop their wares, and teams with needs will be calling. On Feb. 16 teams can begin to designate their franchise tag players. Over the years I have come to appreciate this “deal making” time more than the rest of the year – especially since I haven’t had much to cheer for on the field.
I will toss in a consolidated update here once in a while as events warrant concerning the Bears.
