Bears promote Kevin Turks to assistant director of pro personnel.

Turks is in his eighth year with the Bears' personnel department, the last six as an assistant pro scout.

Turks was a linebacker at North Carolina State from 1995-98.


At least one person thinks the Bears should bring in recently released RB Travis Henry.  What about you?

Just released by Denver, Henry would give us an experienced back and some real competition for Benson in the backfield. Henry does have some issues, but they're nothing compared to Benson's baggage. Henry is also young enough to stick around awhile. Just a couple years ago, he was putting up solid numbers with Tennessee.

I say bring in Henry, let him compete with Benson and Forte for the starting job, and use Peterson exclusively on special teams. As usual I don't expect anything big from Mr. Angelo, but hey, at least we have Briggs back.


Recently signed receiver Brandon Lloyd's contract has officially come off the books for the 2008 season.

On Tuesday, the contracts of Mike Wahle and Dan Morgan in Carolina, Kalimba Edwards in Detroit and Brandon Lloyd in Chicago came off the salary cap books. They were pre-June 2 designees, which gave the players time to find a new home in February and March but gave the three teams the freedom of taking the cap hits for their departures in 2009.
