NFL Rumors: Derrick Shelby, Will Johnson, Bears, Buccaneers, & Titans
- New Falcons DE Derrick Shelby tells Sirius XM NFL Radio that his decision was “really between the Dolphins and the Falcons.”
- Shelby said of his decision to join Atlanta: “I got the feeling of being wanted in Atlanta and it really sold me.” (Sirius XM NFL Radio)
- Jeremy Fowler reports that Steelers free agent FB/TE Will Johnson spoke to the Jets, Bears, Chargers and Titans at the start of free agency.
- Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune mentions that the Bears would like to re-sign TE Zach Miller, who is reportedly targeting a $5 million per year salary in his next contract.
- However, they’d prefer to bring him back on a more team-friendly salary than that.
Campbell writes that the new two-year, $12 million contract signed by Chiefs DT Jaye Howard could be a comparable deal for the Bears and DL Akiem Hicks.
- Brad Biggs is getting the sense that the Bears are still “very much in thick of things” with DL Akiem Hicks.
- According to Campbell, the Bears would still be open to re-signing LB Shea McClellin at a team-friendly price, even after they signed Danny Trevathan on Wednesday.
