Default Bear's former 1st round lineman released..

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...k-wrist-injury

This is a former #1 offensive lineman who was flying to meet with a team last night (although it didn't say which team).
I wonder if we are one of the teams taking a look at him since we're in such dire straits on the offensive line, even though we normally don't get involved in these types of things.

if he indeed has multiple offers, that doesn't bode well for us IMHO

can he play TE? sign him and cut leonard pope?

just think... if ben is only sacked as much as jay cutler it will actually be an improvement.

Well considering we are losing about 2 OL per game we need him and some other body to rotate in as well....

Well Gilbert the terminator is out for now, so our Oline should come out unscathed this next game!

He's terrible and damaged goods. If you can't make the Bears' OL, we don't want you.

I, for one, am very thankful to not have a banged up Colon.
