Free agent analysis

Of the Bears unrestricted free agents obviously <!--Default NodeId For Rosevelt Colvin is 292196,2002--><A HREF=[PlayerNode:292196]>Rosevelt Colvin</A> holds the most weight in terms of value to the team, but without him <!--Default NodeId For Larry Whigham is 292257,2002--><A HREF=[PlayerNode:292257]>Larry Whigham</A> would be atop the list.

The special teams ace is willing to do anything to help his team win a game. Whigham is a gunner, which means he faces double-teams as he tries to tackle the punt returner or down a punt inside the 20.

Whigham's specialty isn't coverage, but the veteran did fill in as the secondary had a rash of injuries. One thing is for sure; opponents know when Whigham is on the field. He's known for hard hits that have at times cost him some cash.

Nicknamed "Hollywood" his lighthearted personality is something a team needs over the long NFL season. He loves Chicago and wants to return.

Likelihood Whigham will return: 75-25 in favor
