The Chicago Bears had a busy day.  All their draft picks are now in the fold.  They re-upped with a couple of their own free agents, for eleven overall, and Matt Forte plans on being in training camp.  Reports are that Jerry Angelo assured Forte that a new deal will get done.  After the jump I'll blockquote their moves from;

Within a short timeframe, the Bears agreed to terms with 11 free agents and all five of their draft picks. The free agents include two of their own defensive starters in tackle Anthony Adams and linebacker Nick Roach. 

Those from other teams are receivers Roy Williams (Cowboys) and Sam Hurd (Cowboys), tight end Matt Spaeth (Steelers), punter Adam Podlesh (Jaguars) and defensive end Vernon Gholston (Jets).

The Bears also agreed to terms with fullback Will Ta’ufo’ou, restricted free agent quarterback Caleb Hanie and two exclusive free agents, running back Kahlil Bell and offensive lineman Edwin Williams.

I'm not seeing a new offensive lineman on that list...  All the speculation points to the Bears being active in the secondary free agent market.
