Latest Chicago Bears News – May 14, 2015
I’ve decided to try to resurrect an old favorite of mine, Bear Dawn. It’s the latest Chicago Bears news from around the interwebs. Here’s what you need to know for May 14, 2015:
The Bears have made a bunch of roster moves in the last few days. Here’s a great recap.
After cutting Khaseem Greene, Moon Mullin reflects on a bad run of 4th round draft picks by the Bears. Let’s hope Jeremy Langford breaks the streak!
Former Bears associate director of pro personnel joined Chip Kelly and the Eagles front office.
A pair of Bears rookies already beat the odds getting contracts to stick around past rookie minicamp.
ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson reminds us that Jay Cutler is the Man of the Moment for the Chicago Bears. No, really.
Soldier Field is installing new video boards so you can have an even better view of Cutler’s latest pick-6.
Former Bears linebacker Lance Briggs remains unemployed, but the San Francisco 49ers remain interested.
A straggling NFL Draft Grades comes from NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks:
"CHICAGO BEARS: GM Ryan Pace and head coach John Fox, both in their first year with Chicago, are intent on rebuilding the Bears with a bunch of intelligent, hard-nosed football players with non-stop motors. Fox, in particular, covets explosive big-bodied athletes at every position, which is why the Bears’ draft features some of the top testers in pre-draft workouts. Kevin White is a dynamic pass catcher with exceptional speed, quickness and burst. He is a natural vertical stretch receiver who could blossom as a WR1 in the Windy City opposite Alshon Jeffery. Defensive tackle Eddie Goldman is a behemoth on the interior, but he plays light on his feet and provides the Bears with a run-stuffer/pocket-pusher at the point of attack. Offensive lineman Hroniss Grasu and running back Jeremy Langford didn’t command a lot of attention during the pre-draft process, but each is a rock-solid prospect with the potential to contribute immediately as a role player. GRADE: A-"
The Bears were one of only seven teams to get an A grade from Brooks.
Brad Biggs’ latest mailbag is bursting at the seams with a ton of great questions about the draft, the rookie class, gaining ground on the Packers and much more.

Turns out the military had to PAY some NFL teams to honor our troops. Thank GOD the Bears, who play at SOLDIER FIELD, were not on the list!
