- Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune mentions that it’s possible the Bears will target either Allen Robinson or Sammy Watkins in free agency and look to pair one of them with fellow free agent WR Albert Wilson.
- Biggs mentions Trey Burton and Jimmy Graham as two tight ends Chicago could consider this offseason.
- According to Biggs, some believe the Bears would like to draft Notre Dame G Quenton Nelson with their No. 8 overall pick.
- While Bears GM Ryan Pace indicated that they would like to re-sign backup QB Mark Sanchez, Biggs believes they could be in the market for other backup options including Chase Daniel.
- As for the cornerback position, Biggs says that re-signing Prince Amukamara figures at least to be a consideration and Patrick Robinson could be someone to watch for them at slot corner.
“Last week, a source said the Packers planned to make a strong run at 28-year-old Ram Trumaine Johnson, probably the best cornerback on the unrestricted free-agent market,” McGinn writes, via PackersWire.com.
“The problem is that Johnson might warrant a contract averaging about $15 million per year, and unless the Packers either cut or exact pay reductions from wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson it might be a stretch to assume they can afford Johnson.”
