Bears Name Greg Olsen Starting TE

It was bound to happen at some point, but the Bears have moved Greg Olsen to the starting line up replacing Desmond Clark.

"It says what type of guy Dez is," Smith said. "Real pros handle it that way, especially when you have a special player in Greg Olsen."

"It is tough to deal with inside, at first, but then when you look at it, I still have a big role in this offense," Clark said after practice at Olivet Nazarene.

The Bears couldn't put this move off any longer.  Olsen is a phenomenal talent, he is more in the mold of a  Tony Gonzalez or Antonio Gates and  you can't keep that on the sidelines.  Per reports Olsen and Cutler have also forged a very good chemistry together.
