Live from Halas Hall: Angelo says working phones is "due diligence"

| 5 Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears general manager Jerry Angelo just took out some time to visit with the folks on the Score at 670-AM. Here are some highlights of what he had to say:

ON WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE WITHOUT A FIRST-ROUND PICK FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE HE WAS IN TAMPA IN 2000 AND THEY TRADED FOR KEYSHAWN JOHNSON?

It does [feel strange] being from a personnel background. We didn't have it for two years and I said we'd never do that again because it just takes the mojo out of the draft.

ON THE 2009 DRAFT?

We feel good about the eight picks we have. We have worked very, very hard in identifying some players we really feel can help our team on both sides of the ball. It's just a matter now of the combination of how we want to take them.

ARE THE BEARS WORKING THE PHONES?

We've always saiud that we are going to do whatever we feel is in the best interest of our football team. That's our due diligence, whatever we feel is going to improve us, then we're going to look at it.

The draft has begun. We'll be updating on here all afternoon and evening when we find news. The Sun-Times reported Friday and again today that Angelo and the Bears have notified teams that they are willing to consider offers for the 49th pick in the draft.

Angelo says working phones is "due diligence" ...

HAHA, see I TOLD you guys Bill would be there!

Tyson Jackson? Talk about a reach. I had that guy 21st on my value board. Hell, Jackson over Orakpo and Brown? Wow, there's a reason KC is picking 3rd isn't there!!!

Brad just because you're right more often than not doesn't mean I actually have to LISTEN to you. It was a reach in my opinion.

Btw, as of this writing Monroe is on the board is that what you're hearing?

Great job today and thank you!
