You knew a couple of pre-Bourbonais moves were forthcoming for the Bears when they selected RB Harvey Unga in the supplemental draft last week and picked up free agent QB Mike Teel yesterday. In order to complete those transactions, the Bears had to create two roster spots. The two longshots who save themselves a trip to Olivet Nazarene are wide receiver Vic Hall and defensive tackle Jimmy Saddler-McQueen.
The Bears inked Unga to a 4-year deal and paid out a whopping $60,250. That’s what Julius Peppers drops on champagne on a bad night. Come on Bears – this is the Cougars’ all-time leading rusher. Hook him up!
