TE Mines promoted from practice squad

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears filled the roster spot cleared by DE Mark Anderson when he went on injured reserve earlier in the week by promoting TE Fontel Mines.

The undrafted rookie free agent from Virginia has been on the practice squad the entire season. He has converted from wide receiver, and could get long consideration in the offseason as John Gilmore could depart in free agency.

The Bears now have two open spaces on their practice squad and are expected to fill at least one with a defensive back.

The most important task the Bears will have once this season ends is to review their offensive line. That's been where there troubles has been all season long. They have not been able to utilize the clock by no means, causing the defense to work even harder, and putting them at risk for season ending injury. The Bears need to start looking either in the draft or free agency to build a new offensive line, and yes, another running back, perhaps McPherson out of Arkansas. He will be an upgrade. Quarterbacks are not needed if the O-line can give him enough time to pass the ball instead of making him scramble all of the time.

when a colledge qb or rb has great success:
a long look should be given to the wr
and the o line
don't u think so

The bears need to keep Olsen and Clark.if gilmore is a free agent and dosent want money resign him too has good hands and is decent pass and run blocker.The Bears Need to focus on O-line.Especially RG and LT.If they didnt have to use the TE's to pass block so often they would be great!
