Evolution of a GM

New, comment

This is a good ?story on how GM Angelo has changed since his days in Tampa.

Eight of 11 starters on the Bears' offense were signed either as restricted or un-restricted free agents, the most notable being left tackle John Tait and running back Thomas Jones in 2004 and receiver Muhsin Muhammad and right tackle Fred Miller in 2005. The draft picks are impact ones: receiver Bernard Berrian and quarterback Rex Grossman.

Conversely, nine of 11 defensive starters are Bears draft picks. But defensive end Adewale Ogunleye, who arrived in a complicated trade with the Miami Dolphins a few weeks before the '04 season, might have been the boldest move of Angelo's tenure.

This was an interesting read and actually ties into something I have been planning to do in the offseason, when things are a bit slower.
