The Bears have been busy in free agency.
I think everyone reading here will be happy with the signing of Danny Trevathan from the Broncos. This year, the Broncos conclusively proved (like the Ravens back in the day) that you can win a Super Bowl with a hard thumping insane defense with no offense, and the addition of Trevathan now gives the Bears a fearsome duo of linebackers alongside Pernell.
We also signed a solid right tackle in Bobby Massie away from the Cardinals. This is more important than people think, as now Long can move back to his more natural spot at right guard.
Porter got re-upped for three years. He looked solid in the backfield for the Bears. Not a superstar by any means, but solid.
I was surprised to see Jaquizz Rodgers get re-upped for a year to back up Langford.
I will keep adding to this post as more signings come. I think that the Bears may be done in free agency, but we will see. I am very happy with these pickups.
UPDATE 3-14-16 – Wow Halas Hall is a busy place. The Bears have re-upped Mitch Unrein (2 year deal), Marc Mariani (1 year deal) and Sherrick “the Irishman” McManis (2 year deal). We have also picked up Akiem Hicks and Jerrell Freeman, further bolstering the defense.
UPDATE 3-15-16 – Zach Miller re-upped for a two year deal.
