The rumors were kind of scarce on Wednesday for the Chicago Bears, but at some point soon we should hear something at the safety position and at offensive guard. The Bears have holes at those two spots that they can’t afford to let go unfilled until the NFL Draft. Their moves could be to simply re-sign Ha Ha Clinton Dix at safety and Ted Larsen for guard, but there are plenty of other options on the market at both positions.
The full list of transactions involving the Bears can be found below the horizontal line, and for the latest news and rumors just keep reading...

11:51 PM: The Cowboys sign Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. (link)
2:53 PM: Washington signs swing tackle Cornelius Lucas away from the Bears on a 2-year, $5.3M deal per Ian Rapoport. (link)
1:30 PM: While his recruiting hasn’t done much good so far, maybe Cordarrelle Patterson’s latest shout out to safety Tony Jefferson will pay dividends.
11:00 AM: If the Bears are looking for a speed receiver, the Rams just put Brandin Cooks on the trade block. And just as an FYI, Cooks was drafted by the Saints in 2014 when Bears GM Ryan Pace was still their director of player personnel, and current Bears director of player personnel John Lucas was a scout there.

March 18: There were some rumblings about a contract extension for Allen Robinson, but the only internal news came in the form of Cody Whitehair having his contract restructured. In case you missed that, you can read about it here.
