Angelo addresses Ruskell rumors -- sort of

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears general manager Jerry Angelo didn't clear up why he ousted senior pro personnel director Bobby DePaul or if he's going to replace him with longtime colleague Tim Ruskell.

But this much is clear: changes are coming.

"Obviously, I want to restructure," Angelo said. "But I haven't cemented anything."

Earlier this week, ESPN reported Ruskell would be hired within 48 hours then added another story that said he had "agreed to terms" with the Bears.

The club disputed both reports.

"There's been a lot of speculation - wrongful speculation," Angelo said.

"He's a professional friend," Angelo later said of Ruskell, with whom he worked in Tampa.

Ruskell resigned as the Seattle Seahawks president of football operations in December.

Angelo wouldn't provide deals, only saying, "I'll address it at the right time."

But he said the changes are natural.

"We evolve," he said. "You have to evolve."

Buzz at the NFL combine is that Bears scout Chris Ballard could be in line for a promotion of some sort.
