Breaking News: Chicago Bears name Phil Emery General Manager

George McCaskey, Ted Phillips, and Lovie Smith have found their man.

Per Dan Pompei's story here, the Chicago Bears have named Phil Emery their new general manager.

The future of the Bears is being placed in the hands of Phil Emery, who has been chosen to be the team's new general manager.

Emery will take over for Jerry Angelo, who was let go from the Bears after the collapse of the 2011 season.

Emery, who has been roundly praised by folks such as Scott Pioli, among others, returns to the Bears after a stint as a regional scout. He has since spent time with the Falcons and Chiefs.

Notable players brought into organizations while Emery was around include Brian Urlacher, Matt Ryan, and Roddy White.
