NFC Notes: Bears, Packers, Vikings


NBC Sports Chicago’s Adam Hoge reports that the Bears are exploring candidates to replace current GM Ryan Pace, saying that the organization is contemplating many different options:

“With head coach Matt Nagy seemingly on his way out, the Chicago Bears have also begun to do their homework on potential general manager replacements for Ryan Pace, according to multiple league sources,” said Hoge. “That homework has included gauging back-channel interest from at least one college scouting director employed by another club, which isn’t uncommon practice when contemplating a major change.”


Packers’ TE coach Justin Outten says that TE Josiah DeGuara is playing well after tearing his ACL in Week 5 last season.

“Yeah, he’s clicking on all cylinders,” Outten said, via “He’s doing a really good job for us for now. He’s playing fast. He’s come alive in every facet.”


  • Vikings OC Klint Kubiak said WR Adam Thielen (ankle) is working to be available for Week 15 but they intend on being “smart” with his injury: “I know Adam is doing everything he can to get ready to play. … We’re going to be smart with him.” (Chris Tomasson)
  • Ben Goessling reports that Thielen could still play on Monday night and will attempt to practice on Saturday.
