Bears Hit Bottom, Ask Miller To Come Back

In case the Bears forgot the offensive line last season, well it sucked.  Becuase of that the Bears released tackle Fred Miller.

Faced with a lot of injuries the Bears have reached out to the former Bear to make a return.

Agent Harold Lewis said Miller, 35, is mulling whether to sign with the Bears, Texans or Ravens. The decision could be finalized in the next day.

"His preference would be to return to the Bears," Lewis said Thursday evening.

Miller was released in February for salary cap reasons. He was heading into the final two years of his five-year, $25.5 million contract. He was due a $500,000 bonus on March 1 and scheduled to make $4 million this season.

The article goes on to say that this will allow the Bears to move John Tait back to left tackle.  John St. Clair,  Josh Beekman and Anthony Oakley would all get looks at left guard. 

Maybe I should take this opportunity to remind the Bears there is a guy who would be a better pickup still available.  I don't think I really need to mention names...AGAIN.
