The Bears are too stupid to draft a QB. And even if they did, they would NOT Know how to PROPERLY DEVELOP him. Any QB drafted by the Bears will be RUINED. Plus their OL is horrible. They should draft the best OL available, then go after a QB in later rounds considering they still Cutty locked into that mega garbage contract for another 2 years. Laughing stock of the NFL, Bears are the NFC version of the Browns.
@DJR How do you know that? He could easily be just another change of pace / special teams type back. Can he carry an NFL LOAD at 199-205 pounds? NFL is not Stanford. Lets see what he runs at the combine and pro days. He looks like an overrated change of pace share the load type back to me. Would not be surprised if he runs a 4.5 at the combine, plus he does not break a lot of tackles either, which you HAVE to do in the NFL. This is where many GREAT COLLEGE backs dominate in college but fail in the NFL against guys that are bigger and faster than college LBS and Linemen.
2012 Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2012.
Follow me @walterfootball for updates.
Jermichael Finley, TE, Packers. Age: 25. Re-signed with Packers (2 years, $15 million)
Big things were expected out of Jermichael Finley this year, but he caught only 55 passes. Even worse, he had a whopping 14 drops - the most for any tight end in the NFL. The good news is that he's just 25, so the sky is still the limit for him.
Fred Davis, TE, Redskins. Age: 26. Re-signed with Redskins (1 year, $5.416 million)
Fred Davis caught 59 balls for 796 yards and three touchdowns in 2011. He's a really skilled tight end, but the downside is that one more suspension for substance abuse will result in a season-long suspension.
John Carlson, TE, Seahawks. Age: 28. Signed with Vikings (5 years, $25 million; $11 million guaranteed)
How is John Carlson 28 already? The former Notre Dame tight end missed all of 2011 with a shoulder injury, and it's safe to wonder if he'll ever reach his potential.
Scott Chandler, TE, Bills. Age: 27. Re-signed with Bills (2 years)
Scott Chandler caught 38 balls for 389 yards in 2011. He's a pretty mediocre talent.
Kevin Boss, TE, Raiders. Age: 28. Signed with Chiefs (3 years, $9 million)
Kevin Boss is a decent end zone target (16 TDs last three years with Giants) and a solid blocker.
Jacob Tamme, H-Back, Colts. Age: 27. Signed with Broncos (3 years, $9 million; $3.5 million guaranteed)
I know quarterbacking was a major issue, but it still bothers me that Jacob Tamme didn't step up when Dallas Clark went down this year. Tamme did nothing to prove that he wasn't a system product manufactured by Peyton Manning in 2010.
Dallas Clark, TE, Colts. Age: 33. Signed with Buccaneers (1 year)
Dallas Clark looked awful without Peyton Manning last year. He struggled with injuries and drops, as it gave credence to those who believed that he was just part of Indianapolis' system. Clark should sign with whichever team is lucky enough to land Manning (Update: It's pretty telling that the Broncos didn't even want Clark, opting for Jacob Tamme instead).
Martellus Bennett, TE, Cowboys. Age: 25. -- Signed with Giants (1 year, $2.5 million)
Joel Dreessen, TE, Texans. Age: 30. -- Signed with Broncos
Daniel Graham, TE, Titans. Age: 33.
Visanthe Shiancoe, TE, Vikings. Age: 32. -- Signed with Patriots (1 year, $1.2 million)
