Booker leaves Boston without a deal

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

A source close to the situation said Marty Booker has left New England without being offered a contract by the Patriots.

While that doesn't mean New England will not make a play for him, Booker is getting serious interest from up to 10 teams. The Bears are not believed to be one of them.

Minnesota, Tennessee, Pittsburgh and the New York Jets are all interested. Don't discount the Arizona Cardinals either, where offensive coordinator Todd Haley is believed to want to reunite with Booker. Haley was the receivers coach with the Bears when Booker played here from 2001-03.

The bears need a WR in FA. Most WR take time to develop and they are not in a rebuilding mode. Although Booker isn't the fastest he would be a better target than Moose (not as many dropped passes). Plus they could sign him to a 2 yr deal and draft a player that would develop into his replacement.

Jeez, the Bears destroyed the Moose, then wrote him off the 2nd half of the season. He IS a great wideout, regardless of his age. He'll land somewhere who appreciates offensive talent. Marty Booker was blessed to be sent to Miami, and for his own good, better stay the heck out of Chicago. Kyle Orton will be #1, and if the Bears do not flock him up, will be a very good NFL QB

"Jeez, the Bears destroyed the Moose"

Congrats Allan, that is probably the first time that has ever been written concerning Moose.

I just thought the guy stunk, but now I must look into this other scenario.

the Bears destroyed him?
I think that its more like he destroyed his QBs
hey I liked the guy and I wanted him to do well and its hard to see him go as a guy he was great, but too many dropped passes and he just doesn't have speed and to add to it hes getting quite old the Bears need great WRs and especially that one go to reciever
