Amobi Okoye was signed by the Bears last season as one of several "buy low" value candidates, and picked up four sacks in rotational duty. Yesterday, he parlayed that into a deal with the Buccaneers, ending his stint as a Bear.

Okoye wasn't going to be a star, but his departure leaves the Bears pretty thin at defensive tackle, with only Henry Melton, Matt Toeaina and Stephen Paea on the roster.

At this point, it seems even more likely the Bears will be looking towards the defensive line for their first pick in the draft. What do you think, Bears fans?
