2001-2010 All-Bears Team: Defensive Tackle #2

New, comments

As usual, it's time to reveal the results of Wednesday night's poll, and honestly, I wasn't surprised.

With 91% of the vote, Brian Urlacher leads of the team's LB depth chart.

Sometimes, you just have to do the poll knowing ahead of time what the results are going to be. This didn't disappoint. In a position the Chicago Bears are historically famous for, Urlacher's name is right up there with the greats.

Today though, we move on past that, back to the defensive line, as we wrap up the front four with the second defensive tackle spot. Follow me past the jump for the lowdown on who's being added to the list of candidates...

Ted Washington: A 1991 first-round draft pick of the 49ers (That's right. 1991.), Washington arrived to the Bears in 2001, where he notched his fourth Pro-Bowl season and was named an All-Pro. Washington had 1.5 sacks with four passes defended and 26 tackles with 8 assists. He only played two games in 2002, then resumed his career in New England.

Keith Traylor: A 1991 third-round pick of the Broncos (seeing a pattern here?), Traylor was signed before the 2001 season. Played in 41 games as a Bear with three sacks, one interception nearly returned for a touchdown (too bad it wasn't his 1997 interception return, which DID result in a touchdown), three forced fumbles and 68 tackles with 13 assists.

Anthony Adams: A second round pick of the 49ers in 2003, signed by the Bears before the 2007 season. No Pro-Bowl nominations, but over his four years as a Bear has 4.5 sacks, two passes deflected, two forced fumbles and 104 tackles with 24 assists.

And now we add to the list...

Tank Johnson: A rotational tackle for the Bears from 2004 to 2006 as a second-round draft pick, Tank has 9 sacks as a Bear with three passes defended, a forced fumble, and fifty tackles with twelve assists.

Ian Scott: A 2003 fourth-round pick of the Bears, played from 2003-2006 as generally a rotational player. Finished with 2.0 sacks as a Bear, one interception, 14 passes defended, and 69 tackles with 27 assists.

As always, if you disagree with any of the above choices, vote other and tell us who you want to nominate!
