Perry Fewell is not coming to Chicago, or is he? (Updated)

According to Adam Schefter, Perry Fewell will not become the next Defensive Coordinator of the Chicago Bears, as he will be accepting the position with the NYGiants.  Fewell was thought by most to be the Bears first choice to fill the vacancy.

The Chicago DC position has been previously held by Ron Rivera and Bob Babich under Lovie Smith's tenure as head coach.  Now, they'll have to look somewhere else.

Thoughts?  Other names to consider?

UPDATES: Per this article, Fewell is still considering his options.  

And this Twiter page of a beat writer in NY says the same thing, and that Fewell may not make a decision until this weekend.

Pompei's article saying that Fewell is still considering Bears offer.
