Bears trade Brandon Marshall to Jets, per report; Percy Harvin now may be on move

The Jets have until March 19 to make a decision on the future of Percy Harvin after getting Brandon Marshall from the Bears. The New York Jets and Chicago Bears have become the latest teams to trike a blockbuster trade before NFL free agency even begins. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bears have traded Pro-Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall to the Jets. Marshall getting shipped out of Chicago has been rumored to be in the works for awhile, so it's no surprise this move is going down. Bears have agreed to trade WR Brandon Marshall to the Jets pending a physical, per league source. —...

Mocking The Mocks: Mel Kiper has the Bears taking Randy Gregory at 7

It's 2015 Mock Draft time! We'll do our best to pick out a few reputable mock draft sites, feature their Chicago Bears' selection, then ask you to tell us how they did. Today we'll check out the latest from ESPN's Mel Kiper. With free agency set to begin in in five days, the look of many of the recent mock drafts can take a drastic turn. If a team signs a high priced defensive lineman, they'll most likely bump their need at DL down a peg or two. A team trades for a legit #1 wide receiver, they may not be looking at wide out in the 1st round anymore. Needless to say, just as an NFL team's...

Lance Briggs will not return to the Chicago Bears

An end of an era for the Chicago Bears... This is the second Chicago Bears news item today that shouldn't be a shock to any fans. Sources confirm Lance Briggs will not be returning to the #Bears next season. #NFL— Jen Lada (@JenLada) March 5, 2015 Lance Briggs made 7 straight Pro Bowls from 2005 to 2011 after being a 3rd round pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. During his first 10 seasons with the Bears, he only missed 4 games, but the last two years, injuries kept him out of 15 games. You factor in his health, his age (35) and the move to a 3-4 defense, and Briggs is left without a place in...

NFL Trade Rumors: Brandon Marshall shopped by Bears for mid-round draft pick

The Chicago Bears are shopping wide receiver Brandon Marshall with the idea of moving the Pro-Bowler. A deep free-agent class of wide receivers could be getting even deep if Brandon Marshall become part of it. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears are shopping Marshall around in hopes to get his contract off their books, and it might take just a mid-round draft pick to get him. Marshall is coming off an injury-plagued year that saw him catch 61 passes for 721 yards. That combination along with the coaching and front-office changes in Chicago has led to rampant...

NFL trade rumors: Bears exploring Brandon Marshall trade

The Bears are reportedly looking to off-load receiver Brandon Marshall in a trade. Should Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell give Chicago a call? The Jacksonville Jaguars are in the market for receiving options this offseason, and one more name has come to the forefront as the Chicago Bears are reportedly looking to trade wide receiver Brandon Marshall. According to Chicago Tribune writer Brad Biggs, the Pro Bowl receiver could be leaving Chicago soon. Whether or not Jacksonville will be interested is another story.

NFL trade rumors: Bears exploring Brandon Marshall trade options

The Chicago Bears are reportedly shopping their Pro Bowl wide receiver. Would this be something the San Francisco 49ers could get involved in? The crazy season is heating up in the NFL. With five days remaining until the start of the new league year, the Chicago Bears are exploring trade options with wide receiver Brandon Marshall. The Chicago Tribune is reporting the Bears are looking to get a deal done, and might be open to moving Marshall for a mid-round pick. The Bears originally acquired Marshall from the Miami Dolphins for a pair of third round picks. Marshall is coming off his worst...

Brandon Marshall on the trade block

Trades can't officially happen until the NFL league year starts on Tuesday, March 10th, but the Chicago Bears are actively shopping wide receiver Brandon Marshall according to the Tribune's Brad Biggs. Now it makes sense why the Chicago Bears met with free agent wide out Brandon Hartline yesterday. Sources: #Bears are exploring trade options for WR Brandon Marshall. http://t.co/41Y6QisitE— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) March 5, 2015 Even though Marshall has been on relatively good behavior during his time as a Bear, there were still some headache moments last season. It's perfectly logical for...

Bears Exploring Trade for Brandon Marshall, Interested?

The Jets need a legitimate #1 wide receiver, it sounds as though the Bears want to move one. The Jets have wanted a true #1 wide receiver for a number of years, they have an excellent #2 in Eric Decker and a good #3 slot guy in Jeremy Kerley, but that true game-changer still eludes them. The Chicago Bears have been non-committal on Brandon Marshall all off-season and now it seems they are actively looking to trade him. Free agency starts on March 10th, however it's March 12th that you need to consider, that's the day that Marshall's $7.5 million salary becomes fully guaranteed. The Bears...

Should the Chicago Bears sign Vince Wilfork?

With the Chicago Bears switching to a 3-4 defense, they will probably turn to free agency to assist the change. Could an experienced interior presence like Vince Wilfork help that change? Early this morning five time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Vince Wilfork issued the following statement. Morning guys ... Please read below this will be my only statement pic.twitter.com/gClv03hqet— Vince Wilfork (@wilfork75) March 5, 2015 Could the now former New England Patriots nose tackle/defensive tackle/defensive end, fit in with the Chicago Bears' new 3-4 defense? I think that's a no brainier, but...

Do you expect the Bears to trade the 7th pick to Philadelphia?

With the Philadelphia Eagles acquiring their 9th former Oregon Duck yesterday, it just makes sense that they'll be looking to trade up in the 2015 NFL Draft for quarterback Marcus Mariota. Do you think the Chicago Bears are in position to make a deal? The rumors have been hot and heavy that the Philadelphia Eagles, or more specifically head coach Chip Kelly, will do whatever it takes to trade up for his former collegiate quarterback Marcus Mariota. The Chicago Bears are set to pick 7th in the 2015 NFL Draft with the Eagles currently slotted at 20th in the first round. Many Bears' fans are...

Wide Receiver Brian Hartline to visit Chicago Bears on Wednesday

New general manager Ryan Pace and head coach John Fox haven't been clear on Brandon Marshall's future with the team, but the Bears will be entertaining free agent wide receiver Brian Hartline on a visit to Chicago on Wednesday. Pro Football Talk tweeted this morning that wide receiver Brian Hartline (6'2, 200 lbs) would be visiting with the Chicago Bears on Wednesday, which is only one day after spending the evening meeting (and having dinner) with the Cleveland Browns. Hartline was a salary cap casualty in Miami, with the Dolphins recently cutting him to free up the nearly $6 million...

Today we'll check out the recent 2 round mock from SB Nation's Dan Kadar. The way the 2015 NFL Draft is shaping up, the Chicago Bears will have a few home run chances at 7th overall.

Dan Kadar, NFL Draft Editor of SB Nation, just revealed his latest mock draft and he takes...

Ten Thoughts on the NFL: Chicago Bears and beyond

Check out my Thoughts on the NFL and be sure to drop a few of your own in the comment section. 1) Marc Trestman must be atop Josh McCown's Christmas Card list because the shine is still on McCown a full 2 years removed from his stellar statistical performance for the Chicago Bears in 2013. Last off season McCown signed a 2 year, $10 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, only to find himself cut after throwing 14 interceptions, having 10 fumbles (he only lost one) and a 70.5 passer rating in 11 games. His unemployment only lasted a few weeks as the Cleveland Browns handed him a 3 year...

Bears free agency targets: Safety Tyvon Branch

The Bears are in desperate need of some help on the back end of their defense. Could a recently released Oakland Raider with injury issues really be the answer? In exploring the nearing free agent market, a number of comments have expressed interest in the safety position. The Bears have had a lot of poor play at the safety position in the last few seasons and could definitely use a playmaker at the back end of the defense. Much maligned Chris Conte is set to hit the open market and at this point it's best for both the Bears and him that he move on. Conte has been the best safety on the...

Who Makes Up the Core of the Chicago Bears?

Simple question is simple: Who do you think currently makes up the core of the Chicago Bears? Last year was, suffice to say, a disaster in many respects. Who knew that an 8-8 record with a decent statistical offensive turnaround, plus extensions for several players would turn into a 5-11 season, the firing of the head coach and general manager, and possible movements to get rid of those recently-extended players? Last year, we looked at that "offensive turnaround" that proved not to be and looked over the possible core of players on the team, noting that most of the "core" was on the...

Chicago Bears sign Tight End Zach Miller to a 1 year extension

The Chicago Bears have added some competition at back up tight end by re-singing 6 year veteran Zach MIller who spent all of 2014 on Chicago's injured reserve. The Chicago Bears made a roster move today. #Bears have signed TE Zach Miller to one-year extension. Miller spent 14 season on IR.— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) February 27, 2015 Miller was a stand out performer during Marc Trestman's 2014 training camp and in the 1st preseason game he had 6 catches, for 68 yards and 2 touchdowns. He was injured the following week, and placed season on injured soon after. Injuries has been...

Chicago Bears free agent targets: Pernell McPhee

Continuing our look at potential free agent targets for the Chicago Bears we take a look at a guy who has 3-4 experience and could be versatile. The NFL draft is still a ways away but free agency is just around the corner, in fact it opens a week from Tuesday. I firmly believe that the Bears' draft targets will have much more clarity once the dust settles from free agency. Personally, I think that the Bears will ultimately decide between a pass rushing OLB with their draft pick or a big, line stuffing DT. The top two DT prospects, USC's Leonard Williams and Washington's Danny Shelton are...

Packers release A.J. Hawk and the Lions release Reggie Bush, should the Bears be interested?

Two "name" players were released yesterday by rivals of the Chicago Bears, should new general manager Ryan Pace look into adding either A.J. Hawk or Reggie Bush to the Bears? NFL free agency officially starts on March 10th, but the street free agents are able to sign with a new team at any time. Street free agents are players that aren't coming out of an expiring contract, but rather were released by their previous team prior to the league year end. Two such players were cut yesterday and both play a position the Chicago Bears would be looking to fill. The Green Bay Packers released 9 year...
