Edinger's kickoff distance has been a point of contention since he joined the team in 2000, but considering his conversion rate is over 80 percent for his career it's worth the tradeoff.
Head coach Dick Jauron loves Edinger and would do anything to keep him around. In close games the Bears need someone who doesn't mind having the pressure on. Edinger has three game-winning field goals to his credit during his short career including an overtime conversion against Detroit (Nov. 24) that snapped the team's eight-game losing streak.
Likelihood Edinger will return: 90-10 in favor.
