Brandon Marshall, Bears ‘embracing the change’ - Sean Jensen: The Bears' wideout on working with new recruit Martellus Bennett on learning the new playbook, and the loss of Brian Urlacher.

Roster news - Bob LeGere: The Bears added some DL depth Tuesday by signing unrestricted FAs Andre Fulellen and Kyle Moore. They also signed FA center Taylor Boggs.


Dane / Kev: Bears sign two on DL / Bears sign C Taylor Boggs

Roster news - Chris Boden: Addition of DE Kyle Moore all but closes door on Israel Idonije's return. Brad Biggs: Bears have made an offer to Idonije.

NFC North draft needs - Elliot Harrison goes around the NFCN, thinks the Bears would best be served by taking Manti Te'o.

Dan Pompei's Bears mailbag - Readers' Q&A on the draft, Ogletree's risk, Carimi's future and Trestman's 'disadvantage'.

Should the Bears trade their pick? - Maggie Hendricks: The Bears are in a win-now mode. If they can't get a top-5, impact-now kind of player, why keep the pick?


Lester.: Do you think the Bears will trade the 20th pick?

Singletary OK with Anderson wearing old number - Larry Mayer: This season James Anderson will be the first Bears player to wear No. 50 since Mike Singletary retired in 1992, and that's just fine with the Hall of Fame MLB.

Know thy enemy: Packers - Clark Judge: The Packers' typically aren't free-agent buyers, and that strategy has served them -- and others -- well over the years.

Know thy enemy: Lions - Matt Rybaltowski: Lions host Manti Te'o for pre-draft visit. Dave Birkett: Lions interested if Te'o lasts to second round. Justin Rogers: Chance Warmack also visits, would fill position of need.

"Tom Landry Strategy Football" had you on the sidelines, calling plays. It remains the only gridiron game I've seen where defensive players can slip and fall in coverage.
