The Bears were busy before the draft, trying to fill many of the holes left by departing players.
Among the Free Agents Signed –
WR, Harry Douglas (5 Years, $14.25 Million) – After getting burned by Douglas when the Bears faced him in 2011, they have signed one of the fastest Free Agent WRs around. He will compete for reps with Johnny Knox.
DT, Amobi Okoye (5 Years, 21.67 Million) – He had an impressive year and has a lot of room to grow. The Bears got a deal when he agreed to this contract.
MLB, PJ Walters (4 Years, $7.35 Million) – A tackling machine in college, he is hoping to learn a few things from future Hall of Famer, Brian Urlacher.
LG, Mike Setterstrom (5 Years, $11.91 Million) – More of a stop-gap LG for the Bears. He has a history of good blocking ability but he might have reached his ceiling.
WR, Dane Sanzenbacher (5 Years, $8.51 Million) – The Bears aren’t too fond of many WRs in the draft and decided to go after this sure handed 3rd Down WR.
C, Mike Pollak (5 Years, $4.87 Million) – Another stop-gap O-Lineman? The Bears hope he can provide some much needed support and leadership with a little better pass blocking.
ROLB, David Moch (4 Years, $2.75 Million) – Insane speed coming off the edge, he is very raw but could turn into a monster if the D-Line allows him to get around the edge.
