The Bears are in need of another threat at the wide receiver position, and these three veteran candidates are currently the cream of the free agent crop.
Yet, speculation as to where any of these three could be headed has been kept to a minimum lately:
"If teams have any interest in Harrison, they are keeping it to themselves. In a media environment rife with speculation and rumor, there has been nary a whisper regarding Harrison visiting any other teams. Harrison, 36, spent 13 seasons with the Colts."
Holt, who the Rams cut loose last month, has been mentioned in the same sentence with the Tennessee Titans recently after the 33-year-old seven-time Pro Bowler paid the team a free agent visit.
Jim Wyatt of The Tennesseean reports:
"Asked what chances the Titans have of signing Holt, Fisher said: 'It is difficult to say. He wants to make the right decision for him, and there are other factors, too. There's salary and all those other things that have to fit. But we had a real good visit. He got to visit with the coaching staff and some of the players.''"
Brad Biggs recently reported that Holt is probably not an option for the Bears.
It's unlikely (but not entirely impossible) that the Bears would go after Burress in the wake of the Cedric Benson/Tank Johnson era, and fans for the most part seem to be OK with that.
However, it was reported by Zach Zaidman on the Score earlier this week that the Bears' newest acquisition, Jay Cutler, reached out to Burress via text message that he "could use" him in Chicago. And if Burress can clear himself somehow of the felony gun charges looming over him, he could be a viable option for the team.
With Cutler at the helm, the Bears will need some solid targets at wide receiver. A lack thereof could turn a Pro Bowl quarterback into, well, a typical Chicago Bear gunslinger.
So, if you're Jerry Angelo, what's your approach to the wide receiver position in the off-season? Do you draft? Do you go after one of these free agents?
