Bears GM Ryan Pace regarding their decision to tender RFA WR Cameron Meredith at the original level instead of using a second-round tender on him: “Without getting into specifics, obviously he was coming off an injury. We lean on our training staff and our docs. Hey, I’ve got a lot of respect for Cam and a lot of respect for the organization he went to (Saints). We wish him luck.” (Rich Campbell)
As for losing him to the Saints, Pace said: “It’s happening right now in the draft. We just went through our medical grades. Every organization is different. Every organization comes to different assessments.”
Pace said they have eight players they’re comfortable taking at No. 8 overall. (Patrick Finley)
While the Bears haven’t confirmed whether they’ll pick up WR Kevin White‘s fifth-year option, Patrick Finley can’t imagine them exercising the option.
