Much work still to be done by Pace, Bears - Bob LeGere: The Bears are expected to continue the process of remaking a 5-11 roster, including a defense transitioning from a 4-3 base to a 3-4.

Ryan Pace following Emery early footsteps in FA - Moon Mullin: Phil Emery struck quickly when the 2014 market opened, securing two edge rushers, a receiver/returner and a safety in the opening couple of days of allowable signings.

Ranking the 16 greatest RBs in NFL history - Walter Payton vs Barry Sanders. There can be only one.

Royal: Plenty to like about the Bears, starting with Ryan Pace - Adam L. Jahns: Eddie Royal knew almost everyone he needed to know, from Jay Cutler to John Fox and Adam Gase, but his unsolicited praise for a person he wasn’t familiar with speaks volumes.

Bears have interest in Samson Satele - Brad Biggs: The Bears have expressed interest in veteran center who has started 114 games; unsure how it would impact incumbent Roberto Garza,

[Video] - Robert Klemko analyzes Bears free agency thus far.

Bears price for Marshall turns out to be just about right - Moon Mullin: A market of sorts has been set for good receivers, with Brandon Marshall's trade being exactly the same terms as the Dolphins and Vikings agreed to for Mike Wallace.

Rapoport: Bears didn’t shop Jay Cutler around - Moon Mullin: Ian Rapoport said the QB was available, but none of the teams that might have been in the QB market had heard from the Bears.

With Cutler back, what could possibly go wrong? - [Eh, it's Barry Rozner. You know what you're getting: something better than Mike Imren, about on a par with Steve Rosenbloom, a little worse than being poked in the eye by a midget.]

Bears miss out on Ron Parker - [James Neveau, luv, the Bears aren't going to sign every free agent out there. There's such a thing as a salary cap, and the player's own preferences on where he wants to be. Deal with it.]

Bears history - Neil Hayes catches up with former Bears QB Steve Fuller.

Den history - Three years and 892 Dens (minus a dozen or so that m'colleagues kindly filled in for me on) since I took over from Pete Dixon, when the headline news was Phil Emery's trade for Brandon Marshall.  Two years ago it was the signing of Jermon Bushrod and whether or not to bring back Brian Urlacher; this time last year we had high hopes that Charles Tillman's return would help Mel Tucker's defense rebound from an injury-plagued first season.
