2015 NFL Free Agency: Chicago Bears news and rumors for Wednesday, March 18

This is your Open Thread (Rated WCG-MA) to discuss NFL Free Agency! Feel free to take the discussion in what ever direction you see fit.

We're now over a week into NFL Free Agency and the Chicago Bears have been relatively quiet.

But that's a good thing.

General manager Ryan Pace seems to be biding his time on a few players to wait for the market to shape up. He waited out safety Ron Parker, who ultimately re-signed in Kansas City on the 2nd largest safety contract handed out this off season so far (5yr/$30mil).

Pace is still waiting on inside linebacker Mason Foster, who now has at least one more potential suitor in the San Francisco 49ers.

It was reported last week that the Bears have interest in center Samson Satele and yesterday it was reported that the Bears were eyeing Patriots interior offensive lineman Dan Connolly to play center.

The Bears were linked to a few corners last week and they still haven't technically ruled out a Charles Tillman return.
