The Texans Traded TE Khari Lee To The Bears For 6th Round Pick

This will be a very busy week across the NFL, as teams shuffle their rosters to have their 53-player teams locked in place by Saturday. The Houston Texans have reportedly traded TE Khari Lee to the Chicago Bears for a future 6th round pick. Lee did a fantastic impersonation of coach Bill O'Brien during the rookie talent show night, which was featured on HBO's "Hard Knocks" episode 3.  He also flashed in several preseason games with athletic catches.  Lee will be wearing a Bears uniform for the 2015 NFL season, and the Texans will have an extra 6th round draft pick. From ROTOWORLD: Lee...

What can we expect from the Chicago Bears' running game: Five Questions With Football Outsiders

A few weeks ago, we had the chance to talk some Chicago Bears football with Tom Gower of Football Outsiders. If you aren't familiar with Football Outsiders, they bring innovative statistics and intelligent analysis with a sabermetric-type spin for both the NFL and the NCAA. We've referenced their stats from time to time here on Windy City Gridiron and you may have seen their stuff on ESPN.com, SI.com, SB Nation and other well known sites. If you are into cutting-edge statistical analysis, obsessive film study, sabermetric-money-ball type stuff, fantasy football, pro and college football,...

Jimmy Clausen suffered concussion in loss Saturday night vs Bengals

Initially, Clausen was cleared after sideline testing, but had delayed symptoms following a big hit in last weekend's game versus the Bengals. In the fourth quarter last weekend versus the Bengals, Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen took a shot to the head as he attempted to slide, and was immediately taken to the sideline for testing for concussion symptoms. Initially, the Bears cleared him for a concussion, but kept him on the sideline the remainder of the game.  Later that night, apparently, Clausen began showing delayed signs, and it was later confirmed that he did in fact have a...

The Bears Den: September 1, 2015

Football month is upon us... come get caught up on all the latest Chicago Bears news and headlines. September is here, and with it, it will bring cooler weather, outdoor cooking, and real football that counts in the record books.  Even with the changes and challenges going on at Halas Hall, there's still a bit of excitement surrounding the Chicago Bears and what kind of team they will field in two weeks when the regular season kicks off. Before we get there though, the Bears have one final preseason game, which will be played this Thursday against the Cleveland Browns.  We'll have more...

Preseason Week 3 Bengals vs Bears: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

We take a look at the best and worst from the Bengals' 21-10 win over the Bears in the third week of the preseason. It was a nice rebound for a team who had a terrible showing (once again) on the national stage on a short week. As the Cincinnati Bengals returned home for their "dress rehearsal" in Week 3 of the preseason, they quelled a lot of worries that popped up from their deplorable performance on Monday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We take a look at the best and worst from the Bengals (and others) on Saturday night against the Chicago Bears. The Good: Bengals' Quarterback...

Kyle Long working at right tackle with Vladimir Ducasse at right guard

On Saturday night there was one position that stood out in the worst possible way for the Chicago Bears and that was right tackle. To be fair, the team has issues at other positions, but right tackle is scary-bad. I'm talking, get the quarterback out of there, keep a tight end in to help and send a back to chip on every pass play scary-bad. Charles Leno "won" the job two weeks ago, but he didn't look that good against the Colts during the 2nd preseason contest. Jordan Mills was #2 that night, and he looked like a guy that wanted his job back while playing agaisnt the Colts' twos. But then...

Ten Thoughts on the NFL: Chicago Bears and beyond

Check out my quarterback heavy edition of NFL Thoughts this week... 1) Robert Griffin III is no longer the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins. Earlier today head coach Jay Gruden name Kirk Cousins the starter and I think it's the correct choice. RGIII can be a successful QB in the NFL, but he needs an offense built around him. The entire system has to be RGIII friendly and Gruden is a strict West Coast Offense guy. Cousins is the right guy at this time because the Redskins need to find out if he's their long term answer. And since it's obvious that RGIII isn't, they should...

Bears vs. Bengals Rewind: Positives, Negatives from preseason week 3

If Saturday night's game was supposed to be the game that closely resembles the regular season, then it could be a long, long year for the Chicago Bears. I try to remain even-keeled and level-headed with most things I write for this site. There are almost always silver linings in anything and all it takes is a little digging to find something positive. With that said though, the Bears got pretty much shutdown by a playoff team Saturday, which is fine. First off it is still the preseason and this is a team that is still trying to find its way and adjust to new schemes. Second, this Bears...

Devin Hester taking shots at Jay Cutler

Another day, another former Chicago Bears player having something to say about Chicago's quarterback. The latest ex-Bear is Devin Hester, who played five years with Jay Cutler, before signing with the Atlanta Falcons before the 2014 season. In a recent interview with ESPN's Vaughn McClure, who used to cover the Bears, Hester talked up his current quarterback, Matt Ryan, but in doing so he took a little shot at Cutler. Hester talked about how he and Ryan are on the same page, and if he does make a mistake, Ryan works with him to correct it. Something he didn't always get while playing with...

Preseason Week 3 Bengals vs Bears: Pro Football Focus grades and analysis

The Bengals defeated the Chicago Bears 21-10 in their preseason Week 3 "dress rehearsal" game. Pro Football Focus released their grades for the Bengals performance, and we analyzed them. After a bad performance against the Buccaneers in Week 2 of the preseason, the Bengals came out strong in the third week of the preseason to deal the Bears a convincing loss. Although the final score was 21-10, the score was 21-3 after the first and second teams went off the field, resulting in quite a few important names leaving a great impression on the Pro Football Focus graders. The Bengals' offense had...

Chicago Bears regular season prediction: How many games will the Bears win?

The Chicago Bears got a new general manager, head coach, and two new coordinators. They completely changed their defense, running a 3-4 base for the first time in their history. How will 2015 treat this team that has been in transition? For the second time in the past three years, the Chicago Bears are trying to reinvent themselves.  After a decade of leadership under Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith, the Bears transitioned into a hot mess combo of Phil Emery and Marc Trestman, and now are looking for stabilization with Ryan Pace and John Fox. Fox quickly assembled a combo of highly-respected...

Preseason Week 3 Bengals vs. Bears: "Unsung Hero of the Week" award

We give the nod to a few Bengals players whose contributions may have been overlooked in the team's 21-10 win over the Bears on Saturday night. Cast your vote and sound off on your winner! While the MVP and Unsung Hero pieces are usually ones that honor individuals, sometimes an entire position group is worthy of a tip of the cap.

Cast your vote and sound off on your winner for this week's "Unsung Hero of the Week" award! The Offensive Line: One guy who stood out...

The Bears Den: August 31, 2015

As the preseason hits its final week, let's take a look at the most recent Chicago Bears news, including the most recent roster cuts and transactions. One of the most difficult times of the year is seeing NFL players being cut from rosters, especially those that you know or have rooted for personally.  But we also know that the NFL is a business, so for those who've been released from Chicago, we hope you land on your feet and are able to sign with another team. As of Monday morning, the Bears have trimmed their roster down to 76 players, which means they have one more to go to get to 75...

NFL roster cuts 2015: Chicago Bears cut CB Tim Jennings

Jennings first of what could be many interesting names to hit the open market. NFL teams have to trim their rosters from 90 players to 75 by Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET. For many teams that process began Sunday, and the biggest name that jumped as a player who might draw interest from the New York Giants is two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Tim Jennings. The Chicago Bears cut the 31-year-old Jennings on Sunday. A Pro Bowler in 2012 and 2013, Jennings has been a full-time starter in Chicago for the past five seasons. The Giants could use cornerback depth. They have Prince Amukamara and Dominique...

Chicago Bears place Kevin White on regular season PUP list

The Chicago Bears have announced that rookie wide receiver Kevin White is going on the reserve/physically unable to perform (PUP) list. White was the 7th overall draft pick by the Bears, but his 2015 season is in jeopardy. White was fine at the beginning of OTAs, but he aggravated his shin towards the end of their offseason workout program. The Bears decided to start training camp with White on the PUP list, but once he started some light running, he felt discomfort. He was re-evaluated and a stress fracture was discovered. White underwent surgery a week ago and had a rod inserted into his...

Chicago Bears 2015 Roster Moves: Ryan Pace and John Fox trimming roster

We've got all your roster cuts and player transitions below. The Chicago Bears aren't required to get down to 75 players until Tuesday afternoon, but they started paring away their roster today. The fist cut, and one of the more surprising so far this preseason, is two time pro bowl cornerback Tim Jennings. The Bears started Alan Ball opposite Kyle Fuller at corner last night, and Jennings was actually the 6th cornerback to come into the game. Jennings was originally signed by the Bears to play in Lovie Smith's Tampa 2 in 2010 and with the scheme change to Vic Fangio's 3-4, the team decided...
