BEARS interested in EDGE

Postby Keyser_WV » Fri Mar 11, 2005 3:14 pm

From CBS Sportsline:

Edgerrin James, RB IND

News: The Chicago Sun-Times reports the Bears could make several roster moves to open up enough money to acquire Edgerrin James from the Indianapolis Colts.

Analysis: This potential move depends on whether the Bear decide to choose a wide receiver in the first round of the NFL draft.


Here is the link from Chicago sun times. It is towards the bottom.

I dont see why they need to focus on runningbacks. Id be content with TJ and A-Train. Focus on other issues guys.

A-Train is a UFA and I don't think he's interested in coming back to Chicago. BTW, I read the Sun-Times this morning and they did not report this it is and editorial by a sports writer who says "If they plan to focus on WR in the draft they should try to free up enough cap space to obtain Edge." Just one man's opinion. Nothing from the front office yet.

Can't say Edge/T. Jones, Moose/Edwards would bother me, but I doubt it will happen.

I don't know how much of that info I'd take as truth - seems more like the writer is speculating on a possible "what-if" scenario. However, if the Bears do somehow land Edge, I think that it would be a great deal for 'em.

Thomas Jones is alright... but he's still Thomas Jones, if that makes any sense. Although he looked good when everyone on the team was at full-health, who'd you rather have? Edge would be the perfect RB for Lovie's system...

...although I 'spose RB probably shouldn't be the biggest of their worries at this point.

Arghhhhhhhhh these rumors are killing me...someone just get him already.

The only worry for their running game is if Thomas Jones can stay healthy...is it really worth it to go after such a running back just for that? I don't really think so...they should just stay put with TJ.

If this happened it would screw every edge and tj owner alive. I am neither in any league and therefore I would rejoice.
