Bears make roster moves - Larry Mayer: The Bears on Monday waived FB Evan Rodriguez, brought back WR Devin Aromashodu for a second stint with the team and made four other personnel moves. Kip Lewis: Release of Rodriguez should come as no surprise.

Kev H: Bears cut E-Rod, sign FB Tony Fiammetta / Les W: Bears bring back Aromashodu

Peter King's MMQB - The Bears had to move Williams and Carimi from tackle to guard to try to salvage their careers, then gave up on both. Is there a Bears O-line draft jinx?

Carimi trade an end to bad Angelo drafting era - Tim Baffoe: From Dan Bazuin to Chris Williams, Cedric Benson to Michael Haynes, it’s a wonder the Bears were able to be moderately successful in the Angelo era.

Carimi trade a case of Bears overreacting? - Chris Burke: Was Carimi so massive a failure and such a potential problem in the locker room that Chicago had to dump him for next to nothing? It’s hard to shake the feeling that they bailed on Carimi before they had to do so.

Orange Shy G: Carimi traded to Buccaneers

Carimi exit could create unwanted precedent - Brad Biggs: The risk is that another player next year or the year after will use Gabe Carimi's exit strategy as his own and try to force the team's hand.

McClellin dealing with foot injury - Vaughn McClure: Shea McClellin has plantar fasciitis in his right foot but is not expected to be limited when the Bears begin a three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday.

Minicamp is time to play catch-up for Bears - Adam L. Jahns's five storylines to watch during this week's three-day minicamp. Michael C. Wright has a few more.

Cutler's 'dreadful' communication issues a concern - Steve Rosenbloom: If we hear about another liaison delivering messages between two people who absolutely have to communicate, we’ll have an answer about whether that marriage can be saved.

Dent, Hampton (mostly) agree on Bears “Rushmores” - Moon Mullin: Richard Dent was no fan of Ditka, and he followed his coach’s advice not to live in the past.

3rd face chosen for Mt. Lunchpail, final vote coming soon

Could Ron Turner, Mike Martz or Mike Tice have worn one of these tops to get Jay's attention?


Polish sausage

June Gloom? - Joe Fortenbaugh: Not so much on Monday, as plenty of interesting NFL storylines made their way into our lives.

Know thy enemy: Packers - Pete Dougherty: In 2010, Tramon Williams blossomed into one of the NFL's premier CBs before a shoulder nerve injury struck, and the Packers are looking to help him return to playmaking form.

Know thy enemy: Lions - Justin Rogers: Rookie Ezekiel Ansah says Ndamukong Suh has been like a big brother, providing constructive criticism on the practice field.

Know thy enemy: Vikings - Patrick Reusse: You can talk all you want about similar physical attributes, or the promise of greatness, but it's never a good idea to let go of great players like Harvin and Winfield.

Know thy enemy: Vikings - Josh Katzowitz: Former Vikings CB Fred Smoot on 'love boat' scandal: 'So overrated'.

I'd give it to Susanna Hoffs!
