The story of the three possible Bears...
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch details the reasons for his release
from the Rams. Tino's speed and versatility would make him a perfect
fit for the Lovie Deuce but I'd just like to see them add some new
blood to the unit. If the Bears enter the 2009 season with the 2008
defensive roster, they'll be watching the Andre Johnsons of the world
keep them from the playoffs again.
My favorite line about the Bears' interest in Amani Toomer comes from Vaughn McClure:
"Maybe the Bears should get back in the Anquan Boldin sweepstakes. The
Cardinals receiver remains a trade possibility, as agent Drew Rosenhaus

Rosenhaus. (2) Jerry's attempted deal for Anquan on draft day wet my
whistle and I can't let it go. (3) Toomer would be a solid replacement
for Rash in the slot but he can't be expected to make a significant
This would be a remarkably smart signing if it happens. It sounds like Lovie wants to turn Gaines into a Chris Cooley-type
player - lining him up at both fullback and tight end. This would
provide Captain Cutler a solid target around the goal line and also get
Jason McKie off the field.
