Cap Space is Coming, King Stays, Let Teven Pitch, Wild Rodgers Trade Proposals, and Other Bears Bullets

Chicago Bears

Here’s a parody song you didn’t know you needed to hear until today (because I wasn’t aware of it myself until a friend put me on it yesterday):

•   It was a week ago today in which the Bears wrapped up a widely praised NFL Draft weekend. And while last weekend was an absolute joy ride from start to finish, we won’t get a chance to experience that again until 2023 (at the earliest). That’s because Chicago sent its 2022 first-round pick to the Giants for the opportunity to draft Justin Fields. With that in mind, PFF is already looking ahead to the 2022 NFL Draft.

•   Based on current Super Bowl odds, the Giants would be using the No. 11 overall pick from the Bears. And with that pick, New York would choose Liberty QB Malik Willis. Much like its 2021 predecessor, the 2022 NFL Draft has three quarterbacks going in the top-10, with Willis being the fourth to come off the board at 11. Without falling too far down the rabbit hole, seeing this has me asking: “Would you rather have Fields now or a shot at Willis later?” Based on the buzz that’s built over the last week, I think Bears fans would rather have Fields now.

•   Matt Bowen provides keen insight into NFL things over at ESPN. Over at The Chicago Audible, Bowen chimes in on the Bears’ draft class. Discussion topics include Justin Fields’ strengths, as well as Teven Jenkins’ projected move to left tackle. Check it out:

•   Someone make this happen:

•   Justin Fields makes Chris Roling’s lsat of rookies who won’t begin the year as starters, but should. The Bears are making it clear that Andy Dalton is QB1 right now. But I’d bet a dollar to a donut that Fields’ development could sway their opinions. However, since we have quite a way to go until we cross that bridge – let alone get to it – there is no reason to dive in right now.

•   One day after requesting an interview with Bears Assistant Director of Pro Scouting Jeff King for the team’s Assistant GM job, the gig is going to former linebacker Dan Morgan. King was a Panthers tight end from 2006-10. But since leaving the game, King joined Chicago’s front office as a training camp/scouting intern in 2015 and has moved up the ladder in the years that followed. Perhaps King is next on the list of Bears front office execs whose stock is on the rise. Remember, Carolina had an interview with Champ Kelly for its GM opening earlier in the offseason.

•   I think it’s gonna cost a little bit more than this to pry Aaron Rodgers out of Green Bay:

•   Chargers, electric mosquito repellers, massagers, and more are your Deals of the Day at Amazon. #ad

•   I want to dive into this later. But at first blush, I’m getting a kick out of the Bears and Packers trending in different directions:

•   Makes you wonder:

•   Yeah, the beef between the NFL and NFLPA regarding voluntary training isn’t ending any time soon:

 

•   I love reading stories like this:

•   Still cracking up about this one week later:
