    Bears Sign Punter Podlesh

    Itís not the wide receiver or offensive lineman that fans have been clamoring for since the NFL swung back into busines, but the Chicago Bears have filled a definite need.

    The club has agreed to terms with punter Adam Podlesh on a five-year contract, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. A league source said the contract will average just more than $2 million annually and place him in the top five among punter salaries in the NFL.
    He will replace veteran Brad Maynard, whose contract expired after a 10-season run with the organization. Richmond McGee will also compete for the job in training camp.

    Podlesh, who will turn 28 next month, averaged 43.8 yards per punt with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season. He had 26 of his punts (45.6 percent) land inside the 20-yard line and was a Pro Bowl alternate. In four seasons with the Jaguars, the Maryland product averaged 42.6 yards.

    Anything will be better than Maynard last year...the guy was the worst punter in the league.
