Bears Trade For Dan Buenning

It seems like as soon as I am just ready to open up a good can of rant on the Bears for not addressing some particular need, they make a move.

The Bears have traded for Dan Buenning from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The left guard came to the Bears for an undisclosed 2009 draft pick.

To make room on the roster, the Bears waived rookie cornerback Zackary Bowman, a fifth-round draft pick from Nebraska. The trade is contingent on Buenning, a 26-year-old Green Bay native, passing a physical.

Buenning was a 16 game starter as a rookie.  His second year he started 9 games before tearing his right ACL. The Bucs picked up two more first round linemen, Devin Thomas and Arron Sears, making him despensable.

I'll work on getting some more info from our Bucs blogger, if anything else this gives the Bears depth.  With second year man, but first time starter Josh Beekman currently at that position and Terrence Metcalf coming off an injury and not really being a quality full time answer this is a good move.

Thanks to thecoolest for first pointing this one out.
