Bears general manager Jerry Angelo reiterated what coach Lovie Smith said earlier: they like their receiver corps.
Angelo acknowledged the rumors linking Torry Holt -- who starred under new offensive coordinator Mike Martz in St. Louis -- to the Bears. But Angelo essentially dismissed that possibility, along with any other veteran receiver.
"Our experience has been, and we learned this a couple years ago when we brought in Brandon Lloyd and Marty Booker, is they are going to take reps. Whose reps are they going take? They are going to take younger guys' reps," Angelo said. "Obviously, the veteran is the incumbent. You're always going to have security with him and sometimes in that case it's at the expense of some of our younger receivers.
While a team may want a veteran to lead young receivers, he said those players ultimately take snaps away from them, too.
"You can't have the best of both worlds," he said.
