Chicago Trades Two First Round Picks, Third for Jay Cutler and Fifth Round Pick

New, comments

That's a lot, but not unreasonable. All made possible by Keary Colbert. Who says history will drop you like so many slippery, slippery footballs?

Chicago moves the 18th pick and probably a pick in the mid-to-late twenties next year to become a title contender. Even after all these years, the Bears have a top ten defense. Matt Forte played pretty well and Chicago's interior offensive line is strong. They added left tackle Chris Williams last season. Wide receiver is still a need, but watch some unknowns take off with Cutler tossing the rock. Earl Bennett anyone?

After slow offseason, I'd say it's a pretty good day to be a Bears fan.

Need proof?
