NightLink II: Ken Lucas is visiting the Bears

Helmet tip: NOR CAL BEAR

Orlando Pace was not the only veteran to visit Halas Hall Monday.

A league source told the Sun-Times that cornerback Ken Lucas also was in for a visit, an interesting development given the situation at right cornerback.

Lucas was cut loose by the Carolina Panthers, who are squeezed for salary-cap room, and could make things very interesting for Nathan Vasher if he is signed. The Panthers released Lucas earlier this month in a move that freed up nearly $2.4 million in cap room. After signing offensive tackle Jordan Gross to a major deal, and with defensive end Julius Peppers counting $16.7 million vs. their cap, Carolina has had to dance around the cap some.

Lucas could start opposite Tillman, or he could be CB depth. If the Bears sign him, I think this would make Vasher expendable, which means Vasher will be traded.

WCG: Lucas would be depth.  The Bears are very high on Corey Graham.  If Vasher does not get the starting nod or they trade him, Graham would start next to Tillman.
