Chicago Bears sign Pro Bowl OT Jermon Bushrod

General Manager Phil Emery is making some thing happen... First, signing TE Martellus Bennett, and now adding a Pro Bowl offensive tackle.

When the Chicago Bears hired Marc Trestman as head coach, everything changed. We're talking generations of mentalities and philosophies... Completely out the window. This team no longer gets off the bus running in hopes of the defense winning the game-- They are instantly becoming an offensive-minded football team.

Shortly after the league's new year began, the Chicago Bears upgraded their tight end position by signing Martellus Bennett, previously of the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.

And a couple hours later, another offensive strike: Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jermon Bushrod, who worked with offensive coordinator Aaron Kromar in New Orleans, has agreed to a 5-year deal with the Chicago Bears.

Bushrod was a part of one of the league's best offensive lines since being drafted in the 4th round of the 2007 NFL Draft, and will be an instant upgrade for one of the poorest OL's during that same tenure.

Is Emery done? I'd think not. Stay tuned...
