Time for the Bears to shine in free agency..
T-minus 138 minutes until Free Agency officially starts.

Colston staying with the Saints. 5 years, $40 Mil. with $20 Mil. guaranteed.
Raiders have just cut a few big contracts to clear up some cap room, including Kevin Boss, Michael Bush and Wimbley is also apparently gone.
So chances are Oakland now is also looking for a new Tight End, and thus starts my ridiculous fantasy of Manning going to Denver, Tebow leaving and realising he's a crap QB but a great TE and joining Oakland. It'll never happen.

The Bears acquire Brandon Freaking Marshall from Miami for two 3rd round picks (2012 and 2013). Congratulations Bears fans. You managed to get an elite receiver who has great chemistry with your QB for cheap as hell and now don't have to chase one in free agency. Your new GM already did more to improve your receiving core on the first day of the new league year then Jerry Angelo ever did as the GM.

Congrats to Chicago though, now your best WR... is actually a WR.

About time we got one. With the new gm I belive in a bright future. Tim jennings on a two year contract aswell. I'm even more excited to see what they pull more up from the hat. But really about time that wr came... The good part is he have already played with Cutty so that's good.
tbh i don't know if it's cheap or eexpensive.. The drafting system have always confused me somewhat. And I'm talking about trading picks. As a dane for me picks would be good to have so you can build up a great team it's longterm but still, where this is well short termed? But I'm just optimistic with this deal, gonna be interesting to see what him and cutty can do.

Garçon's deal is reportedly 5 years $42.5 million, $21.5 million in guaranteed money. That ladies and gentlemen is $8.5 million per year. Anyone want to guess where Garçon's salary places on the pay scale for WRs?
FOURTH! FREAKING FOURTH! He is behind only Megatron making an inflated $14 million, Welker, Bowe, and DeSean Jackson's franchise tag of $9.943 million, and Brandon Marshall at $9.3 million.
Only Dan Snyder.

It looked like Mario Williams was headed to Chicago, but that apparently died with the B. Marshall trade. Looks like he may be headed to Buffalo now.
