Are the Bears a cheap organization? If you follow the link and read the article, you'll learn that the Bears aren't cheap in free agency. But they sure don't use free agency to sign any quality players.
While the Packers are using free agency to resign and sign backups, Chicago is using it to try and find a couple low cost starters.
- OL Frank Omiyale was signed right at the start of free agency to provide depth and compete at left guard and right tackle. Because they've just lost OT John St. Clair to Cleveland, it looks like he'll be the right tackle.
- S Josh Bullocks was signed away from New Orleans on a 1 year, $525,000 contract and has been plugged in as one of the starting safeties. The former 2nd round pick was a bust in New Orleans, so he's no sure thing. Bears fans are not excited about the move.
