Bears Sit Down with Giants College Scouting Director Marc Ross About GM Job

    So which GM candidate is the front runner? Who are we as fans rooting for? What will our draft look like under new management? Free agency?

    Are we considering Carimi at LT next year? Wouldn’t that fix some issues?

    Lots of free agents out there. Who u think will help bears? Brent grimes, courtland finnegan? Dwayne bowe, brandon lloyd, v. Jackson, reggie Wayne? Carl nicks, ? Cedric benson, Hightower, Peyton hillis? Cliff avrill, haloti ngata, Robert Mathis? Barrett ruud, Stephen Tulloch? Vince young, Donovan, Jason Campbell?

    I am super excited for this offseason. Lots of free agents to fill holes. I like Barrett ruud, Brent grimes and Dwayne Bowe. All immediate upgrades! Draft safety and/or Wr high. Donovan is done but I would love to have him finish off career as backup in his hometown. Healthy o-line not bad and mad martz is gone so plus won’t take minutes to develop. D-line could use a push still but a high draft pick? I think safety and wr bigger needs.
