    Bears Sign Punter McGee

    Could replace Maynard

    The Chicago Bears have signed punter Richmond McGee to a two-year contract.

    McGee spent parts of last season on Chicago's practice squad, and he was with the Bears during the offseason and 2009 preseason, averaging 36.3 yards on four punts while landing two inside the 20.

    A member of Texas' 2005 national championship team, McGee entered the league as an undrafted free agent with Philadelphia in 2008. He could be in line to replace veteran Brad Maynard, who is due to become an unrestricted free agent.

    Maynard's one of the best in the game. Is he just getting old or something?

    STOP THE PRESSES!!!!!!!!


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    WAS one of the best in the game. In fact, he was dead last in NFL in punting last year.

    I don't know how many times he had a sub-30 yard punt last year...he needs to be replaced.

    Maynard article:

    If the Bears' decision to sign Richmond McGee to a two-year contract signified the end of the Brad Maynard era in Chicago, the memo hasn't made its way to Maynard's desk.

    The veteran punter is set to become an unrestricted free agent, and neither the 37-year-old Maynard nor his agent, Chad Wiestling, have discussed a new contract with the Bears. Maynard is frustrated about his uncertain Bears future yet confident in his abilities moving forward.

    "I don't know what (McGee's signing) means right now because I have not spoken to the Bears," Maynard said Sunday. "And I'm not too concerned about it. I know things will take care of themselves in the end."

    Maynard wasn't satisfied with his performance last season — his 10th with the Bears — as he finished 32nd in the league in punt average (40.1 yards) and 29th in net average (35.2). His recovery from right hip surgery affected his punting, and weather and field conditions late in the season, along with some pooch punts at the start, didn't help his statistics.
