Around The NFC North: Bears and Vikings Are Quiet While The Lions Are Busy

Well the Vikings did sign a kickoff specialist. UPDATE: RB LaDainian Tomlinson is scheduled on Thursday to visit the Vikings. Obviously he's not a feature back anymore, but he would replace departed RB Chester Taylor. While Tomlinson used to be a great receiver, he fell off a cliff last season and only recorded 20 receptions. He was the worst receiving RB according to Football Outsiders. Taylor did most of his damage as a receiver, so signing Tomlinson doesn't seem a good fit. 

The Bears haven't made a signing in days! It appears that their No. 1 remaining priority is to find help at safety. Bears S Kevin Payne is very excited about his team's moves so far. And Panthers S Chris Harris thinks DE Julius Peppers is a great addition to their defense.

Meanwhile the Lions keep signing and trading for players this week. I noted last week that they had a dire need at cornerback, but instead of trading for CB Antonio Cromartie, they signed CB Jonathan Wade and traded for CB Chris Houston. Sean at Pride of Detroit likes the moves, but Rams fans are not sorry to see Wade go, and one Falcon fan described Houston as "uber weak in pass coverage."
