The NFL Draft is more than two months away, the start of the new league season/free agency of 2019 is still a month away. I am not sure what to do with myself - whenever the NFL ends I usually just switch to the NBA but that is not fun this year (don't even remember when was fun the last time honestly). Bored.
This NFL offseason seems to me will be full with storylines about the incredible crash and burn of the Steelers franchise. Not only Leveon Bell and Antonio Brown trying to leave the ship again, but key parts of their coaching staff already left as well (Munchack the o-line coach was an important member) and every news article coming out about their situation shows some sort of disfunction. It's truly fascinating to follow.
My beloved 'Da Bears' just released two players this week, Dion Sims the tight end who really underachieved his contract, and Cody Parkey the kicker who did the same while botching eleven goddamn potential field goals this last season, the last one in the playoff game costing the team a whole game.
Free agency is just a week away in the NFL and a boatload of defensive talent did not get franchise-tagged this year so there is a decent sized talentpool to choose from. Not sure what is the Bears priority this year, besides retaining their own, but sure is interesting to wait it out.
I cannot believe I am writing about this but the Bears jist signed a kicker named Chris Blewitt. BLEWITT. The meme just writes itself this time, right? Altough he is the second signing since we gonna let go Parkey next week, so we may draft another one and these three gonna battle it out for the position...
I might be wrong but it seems DA BEARS won't plan to make a big splash this time in the NFL free agency and frankly I am not sure they give a damn about gettin' compensatory picks for the couple guys we might loose this year, who knows. They signed a nickle corner and a running back so far.
For those of you who are still not tired of me talking about NFL free agency and cap situations... Seems to me the Bears won't make any big splashes this year in free agency - well of course 20 of 22 starters are returning and there was not a lot of hole on the roster anyway so this year they went for strengthening the trenches and bringing in quality depth and role players... Curious to know what happens for that 3rd OLB rotational spot we did not signed up anybody for...
