Roach may get second-round tender

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Bears linebacker Nick Roach is expected to get the second-round tender of $1.684 million.

Roach, who was not drafted out of Northwestern in 2007, has started 24 games for the Bears in the last two seasons, including 15 in 2009. He finished the year with 75 tackles, three forced fumbles and two sacks.

Defensive end Mark Anderson is expected to also get a second-round tender while safety Danieal Manning is slated to get what amounts to a third (see previous post).

They had to do this with Roach. Otherwise, they would get nothing for him since he was undrafted. I think we will see both Williams and Roach get visits scheduled with other Tampa 2 teams, but I don't think either will get signed unless they can work out a better trade deal with the Bears. Williams was drafted, so they could protect themselves with a lower tender offer.

If they are going to bring back Tinoisamoa, they don't really need both Williams and Roach. If they let Pisa walk (my preference), then I think you need both of them, as you have to replace McClover and fill out your depth chart.
