Much ado about nothing: mainstream media style. Before the 2009 NFL Draft, Bears GM Jerry Angelo stated that the Bears were not interested in the services of Plaxico Burress.
Since then, our favorite media outlets have spun a wild-eyed web of rumors that, after several weeks, has seemingly raised some eyebrows as to whether the Bears actually might be interested in Burress. I mean, after all, Angelo himself said that the Bears were monitoring the situation with Plax... how could that possibly not be interpreted that the Bears wanted to sign him?
May 17th, 2009: "Hey Jerry, Drew Rosenhaus said that 2 NFL teams are serious about Plax... what's up with that?"
"Are we one of those two teams? No," Angelo said. "We are very comfortable with the receivers that we have."
Of course, any General Manager worth his salt will always say that they will constantly evaluate every option that is available, and with the Bears having a ton of cap space, we could certainly afford to add another quality WR to our roster. But, I wouldn't hold my breath for another addition... something tells me that we have who we think we will have going into the 2009 season.
Are you comfortable with not adding another WR to our roster?
