Only One DE Left – Bear Dawn (1/25)

 

The Bears are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

After Gaines Adams died, the Bears only have one defensive end under contract (Alex Brown). Adewale Ogunleye is expected to test the market, but the Bears definitely need to re-sign Ogunleye. It’s almost assured that he won’t garner $5 million per year like he was paid this year, but he’ll still ask a hefty price for his services.

Add it to the list of needs for the offseason.
