NightLink: Bears vs. Patriots for Pisa Tinoisamoa?

The Chicago Bears have done a great job this offseason at upgrading several positions of need.  And it looks like we might be in a bidding war for another free agent who could step in and be a possible day 1 starter.  Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa is scheduled to visit the New England Patriots today.  The Pats are looking to replace MIke Vrabel, who is now with the Chiefs.

If Tinoisamoa signs with the Bears, he'd likely be the starter at strong-side linebacker alongside Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs. You can bet Nick Roach and Hunter Hillenmeyer wouldn't be too happy, but the Bears are making every attempt to upgrade the defense. They lost a chance to land cornerback Roderick Hood when the former Arizona Cardinal opted to sign with the Cleveland Browns Tuesday morning.

The Patriots are one of the most intimidating teams to go to battle with on the football field... might the Bears have enough muscle to out-bid them for the services of Pisa on the free agent field?
