Bears “Expected” To Sign WR Roy Williams

The Chicago Sun Times reports that the Chicago Bears are “expected” to sign WR Roy Williams.


Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune reports that the Chicago Bears have “started their pursuit” of recently released WR Roy Williams.

Chicago was rumored to be an option for Williams once he was released and the Bears are in need of a large receiving option. Obviously Mike Martz is looking for pieces that will work with his offensive scheme and the Greg Olsen experiment didn’t pay dividends for them last year.

Didn’t Olsen tie for the team lead in touchdown receptions?  Sounds like a “dividend” to me.

Fair point. I was trying to illustrate that Olsen didn’t end up becoming the dominant tight end that many believed that he would. Five touchdowns is respectable for a tight end but is sad number for a teams offense considering that the 42 players caught at least 6 touchdowns last season.

I liked Olsen on the Bears but they choose Martz’s offense over him. Good addition for the Panthers.
