Bears to Open Up the 2019 Season on Thursday Night September 5th Against Green Bay

The Bears will be in action earlier than a many people thought to start the 2019 season, as the club will open the season at home on Thursday, September 5th against the rival Green Bay Packers.

The league announced Monday that the defending NFC North Champs will open up at Soldier Field against their biggest rival in the 199th meeting between the two teams.

The game will be away from the norm, as usually the Super Bowl champs open up the season at home, but instead the Patriots will open the season Sunday night against a team to be announced.

The Bears and Packers have the most historic rivalry in the game, dating back to November 27, 1921 when the Bears and Packers series started with a Chicago 20-0 shutout.

Currently the Packers lead the all-time series 97-95-6.

Bears Set to Ink Seahawks Free Agent RB Mike Davis

The Bears intend to sign free-agent running back Mike Davis, sources told Dianna Russini of ESPN.

Davis, who turned 26 in February, rushed for 514 yards and four touchdowns on 112 carries last season — all career highs — while serving as the Seattle Seahawks’ No. 2 back behind Chris Carson and ahead of first-round pick Rashaad Penny.

“Bear for Life” – Kyle Long Reworks Deal to Stay with the Bears in 2019

After reworking his contract to free up salary-cap space for the team this offseason, guard Kyle Long will return to the Bears next season, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

“Bear for Life,” Long said on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

Long, 30, was slated to have an $8.5 million cap hit in 2019, the result of a four-year, $40 million extension he signed on the eve of the 2016 season.

The Bears needed cap space but weren’t willing to part with Long. The Bears still believe in him, while he remains committed to them. Long’s new deal provides the team with more financial flexibility.

A first-round pick in 2013, Long has spent the last three seasons battling various injuries, starting only 25 games. He suffered a right foot injury last season that cost him nine weeks. But he returned for the Bears’ season finale and also played in the playoffs against the Eagles.

Bears Hire Former NFL WR Chris Jackson as Defensive Assistant

The Bears have announced a hiring, as head coach Matt Nagy has brought in former NFL veteran Chris Jackson as a defensive assistant.

Jackson joins the Bears in his second stint with the club after previously assisting the Bears during training camp in 2018 in conjunction with the NFL’s Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship.

He most recently served as the receivers coach at Liberty High School in Peoria, Ariz.

Jackson’s NFL career included stops with the Buccaneers (1998), Seahawks (1999), Titans (2000), Packers (2002) and Dolphins (2003). After his NFL playing days, Jackson spent several seasons in the Arena Football League where he was a standout receiver and the AFL Rookie of the Year in 2000 with the L.A. Avengers.

He helped the Philadelphia Soul to an Arena Bowl XXII championship in 2008, recording 140 receptions for 1,692 yards and 49 touchdowns.

Are the Bears and Former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt a Match?

On Monday,coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace left open the possibility the Bears could sign running back Kareem Hunt, who was released by the Chiefs on Nov. 30 after video showed him pushing and kicking a woman in a Cleveland hotel last year, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

While nothing is pending — “We’re not even close to that point,” Pace said — neither the coach nor the GM ruled out a signing when asked a total of six questions about Hunt.

Nagy said he spoke with Hunt, who played for him last year with the Chiefs, last week on the phone.

“We had a good conversation,” Nagy said. “Here’s a kid that I spent a year coaching on offense. It’s a tough situation. I wanted to make sure that he’s OK but understanding, too, that the situation that happened is unfortunate for everybody. He knows that.”

“So the only thing I cared about when I talked to him was literally his personal life, and it was a good conversation. He sounded good. That’s it.”

After the Missed Kick to End the Season, Bears Kicker Parkey the Brunt of Bears Fans Venom

A wild Bears season came to an end on Sunday with devastating loss at home to the Philadelphia Eagles in the wild card game 16-15.

The game came down to a missed field goal with 10 seconds left by Cody Parkey, as the kick hit the post and crossbar, leaving Bears fans with their hearts in their mouths.

After the game, Parkey was booed off the field by Bears fans at Solider Field, and Bears fans on twitter went on a tirade (NSFW) about their kicker who in their minds ruined the teams’ season.
