The Bear’s Den, June 6, 2023

Gambling investigations in the NFL continue, this time in Indianapolis.

Bears Den member Mike Van Tassel sent in the picture for today: In DeKalb, getting ready for Packers @ Bears Monday Night Football. The Chicago Bears stamped themselves as contenders in the NFC. And they did it with a big assist from their oldest rival. Jay Cutler threw for 221 yards, Brian Urlacher forced a key fumble and Chicago took advantage of a team-record 18 penalties by the Packers to beat Green Bay 20-17 on Monday night. Robbie Gould won it with a 19-yard field goal with 4 seconds left. The Packers’ James Jones lost a fumble on a hit by Urlacher in the final minutes. Then Morgan Burnett was called for pass interference on Earl Bennett, setting up the winning kick.


Would you like to show your Chicago Bears spirit to the world? I’m starting a feature where Windy City Gridiron readers can share pictures of themselves and their families and friends in Bears attire. Simply email a picture to me at the following address: denmasterken at aol dot com. The pictures need to be clear, and full resolution (i.e. full size from your phone if that’s how you take them). Include any description information you like along with the photo!



NAPERVILLE Bears?!? What is the next move for Chicago Bears Pres. Kevin Warren? - In this episode of the CHGO Bears Podcast, the guys discuss whether the Bears moving to Naperville is a possibility or just a leverage tactic by President Kevin Warren.

Bears’ Naperville stadium flirtation is long road to same destination - NBC Sports Chicago - Kevin Warren’s idea of “finding the why” is to create enough leverage to get things moving in the Bears’ direction.

New Bears stadium name suggestions for Arlington Heights or Naperville - NBC Sports Chicago - The Bears leaving Soldier Field means they’ll have naming rights opportunities for their new stadium, no matter where it is.

Free agent DEs for Bears to sign with Leonard Floyd to Bills - NBC Sports Chicago - It’s no secret the Bears are interested in adding more players via free agency, and their are still plenty of defensive ends on the market.

Bears still seeking options to bolster edge rush - 670 - After recording an NFL-low 20 sacks in the 2022 season, the Bears remain in the market to sign a veteran pass rusher or acquire one in a trade.


Leslie Frazier visits with Packers, Commanders, Giants - ProFootballTalk - The official story out of Buffalo in late February was that defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier was taking a year off from coaching. The unofficial story always seemed to be that he got a belated nudge from the Bills, as the unofficial scapegoat for the team’s failure to live up to sky-high expectations in 2022.


Report: Isaiah Rodgers is the Colts player under investigation for gambling - ProFootballTalk - reports that cornerback Isaiah Rodgers is the player the league in investigating.
