Cutler-Marshall Reunion in Chicago?


    Who can honestly say they feel comforable with the likes of Devin Aromashodu, Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett, Devin Hester, Jauquin Iglesias and Rashied Davis as the starting wide receivers for 2010?

    That's exactly what Jerry Angelo is suggesting.  Bears GM Jerry Angelo's comments about wide receiver not being a "need" and is excited about the potential of their young wide receivers.  What's scary about that statement is the word potential.  This word can mistakenly be misconstrue for production and banking on the premise of potential seems a little risky.  And lets not forget about Angelo's track record on evaluating talent:

    Did all of these players have potential in his eyes too?  The Chicago Bears need to enter the 2010 season with confidence that the wide receiver position will be a strength.  Making premature assumptions about two good games from Devin Aromashodu is jumping to conclusions:

  • Week 16 Min Rec 7  150 yds 1 TD   (banged up Minn secondary)
  •  Week 17 @ Det rec 5  46 yds 2 TD  (Det is Det enough said)

   So far little as suggested the idea of a Cutler-Marshall reunion, but it's a tantalizing thought and something Bears front office should seriously consider.  Cutler and Marshall were developing into a dynamic duo in Denver and the question, what if..... still is probably lingering in the back of both their minds.  Everyone as a price tag and Angelo needs to figure out what that price is in order to get Marshall in a Bear uniform for 2010.  Chicago does not have any 1st rd draft picks this year and it will take a ton of creativity from the front office to make this happen.  Packaging Olsen and the 2011 first rd draft pick are a few ideas that may create interest.

   If not Brandon Marshall then who?  Terrell Owens is still available, Anquan Boldin was sent packing for nearly nothing.  Denver clearly wants Marshall out.  Unfortunately, everything is pointing in the direction of the Bears staying pat with what they have.

     Getting Brandon Marshall might be a pipe dream and the probability of this happening seems highly unlikely. Then again who thought Culter would be wearing a bears jersey?   It might be wishful thinking to image Marshall in a Bears uniform next year. However one thing is for sure, it's straight delusional to consider Jerry Angelo's assessment of potential a valid reason to be content with the wide receivers currently at hand.
