Nobody was more surprised at the Chicago Bears’ decision to send four draft picks to the San Francisco 49ers for the right to move up one spot and draft Mitch Trubisky than Trubisky himself. That’s because, according to Trubisky, the Bears only worked him out once, and never communicated with him in the weeks leading…
Last night, Chicago traded up to take North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky with the second overall pick, enraging Bears fans but absolutely delighting this Packers fan who turned up at the draft party to, presumably, mock his conference rivals.
The Browns started tonight’s NFL draft by following through on rumors that they would take Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett first. Then things got weird.
The rape charge against former San Francisco 49er and Chicago Bear Ray McDonald was dismissed today after the woman told a judge that she just wanted to put the case behind her, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The woman also reached a financial settlement with McDonald, the Mercury News reported, and she told…
NFL players Deiondre’ Hall and Makinton Dorleant, who both played football at Northern Iowa, were arrested early Sunday morning in connection with a bar fight in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
Mike Glennon, an NFL quarterback nobody has thought about for at least two seasons, suddenly found himself in the news this week when it was reported that he was going to score a contract that would pay him in the neighborhood of $15 million per year. That hypothetical has reportedly become a reality.
Here’s a sure thing: Jay Cutler is done with the Bears. Or, more accurately, the Bears are done with Jay Cutler—they reportedly told him in his January exit interview that they’ll be seeking other quarterbacks for 2017. One big question is whether the Bears can get anything for him.
The NFL Players Association will warn free agents not to sign with the Bears if the Illinois State Senate passes a new bill designed to cut off opportunities for workers’ compensation disability benefits to professional athletes at age 35, rather than the current mark of age 67.
The Chicago Bears have won three games this season, and they looked to reclaim a little bit of their dignity by possibly upsetting the Green Bay Packers in overtime after they scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to tie today’s game with a minute and change. Aaron Rodgers and his teammates had a different idea.
Chicago Bears running back Ka’Deem Carey had one of the “C” decals knocked off his helmet on a hit by Packers linebacker Joe Thomas in today’s game.
Here’s how the Ravens explained their decision today to cut return man Devin Hester after he misjudged a punt that led to a safety:
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears, they had to play each other today.
A former lineman for the Chicago Bears who became a prison guard is facing nine felony charges in Kane County, Illinois for his role in a scheme to encourage violence amongst inmates at a juvenile correctional facility as a method of self-policing.
As Barry wrote a month ago, Jay Cutler is highly unlikely to return to the Chicago Bears next year. He’s 33 years old and the Bears have to pay him $16 million dollars if they keep him next year, which would be an outrageous amount to pay the disgruntled sort-of-good quarterback of a 2-8 team in full-on rebuild mode.…
Chicago Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd left today’s game on a stretcher after injuring his neck on a play.
Alshon Jeffery is not having the best year. He’s set to be a free agent this offseason, and a bounce-back season in which he returned to his 2013-14 form could have set him up for a decent payday. Unfortunately, he’s only got 630 yards and one touchdown in nine games of the season, and now he’s in line to miss four…
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler’s game against the Buccaneers did not get off to a good start, with two interceptions (one a pick-six) in the first quarter. But he took a pretty nice step toward redeeming himself with a Hail Mary to finish off the first half:
It was a feel-good Monday night in Chicago, a relatively dominant 20-10 win over the division-leading Vikings, but the truth is none of that really matters for the Bears. Even with the victory they’re 2-6, not going anywhere, and the team has reportedly hired an “outside consultant” for a full evaluation of its…
