Team Top FA Need - OT, WR, QB
Comments - Mike Brown is a solid safety, but the oft injured veteran can no longer be countered upon to line up over the long haul. The offensive tackle position is particularly unsettled (Miller is likely finished, St Clair is at best a journeyman and Chris Williams has some real medical concerns.) It is unlikely that back up quarterback Rex Grossman will be re-signed, but the club will likely put it's name into the J.P. Losman sweepstakes,. The Colts, Jaguars, Seahawks, Jets, Chiefs, 49ers and Buccaneers are all possabilities for the strong armed quarterback who attended UCLA and Tulane. The good news for the Bears is that it is highly unlikely any of these free agents are going to sign with another club and come back to bite them; the bad news is that the Bears just don't have enough high level football people. I wouldn't be surprised if the Bears did not re-sign a single free agent although Darrell McClover does show some promise.
