Ladies and Gentlemen, Chicago Bears fans of all shapes and sizes, the Long Snapping Legend Patrick Mannelly is back.

USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Bears fans, it was a glorious win when we knocked off the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, but the news we bring you today is even more exciting.

The longest tenured Chicago Bear in the history of the franchise is returning.

Yes, it is true. Patrick Mannelly is apparently back.

It's unfortunate his return equals the departure of Jeremy Cain, but it is what it apparently is. Hasta la vista Cain, it was fun while it lasted.

There was one other fella getting a job today, linebacker Lawrence Wilson is back with the club, and added to the practice squad.
