JA was right and there was some truth to what he said a few weeks ago. There really wasn't a whole lot of value in the big money FAs, and right now there seems to be a FA explosion at Halas Hall. We recently signed Shaffer, and now Pace and Lucas are visiting today. It seems that some patience was a good path to take. It seems we have a shot at getting some pretty good players at a decent price. I would have liked them to bring in Housh or Coles as much as the next guy, but the deals they signed do seem to be just a bit rich for what you are getting. Really if they can get Torry Holt in as well as Pace and Lucas, some of those holes the Bears have really seem to be filling, just in time for the draft. JA has a lot of respect amongst his peers and the guy has built 2 teams that went to SuperBowls. His had his share of misses, but he has really nailed some hits as well. Let's not forget in 2005 he put together a patchwork o-line that led to the #2 seed in the playoffs and went to a SuperBowl after that.
I'm not saying Holt would solve the Bears need at WR, but it would add a piece to the puzzle, even if he is a stopgap.
