    Chicago Bears to sign WR Roy Williams

    According to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun Times.

    https://twitter.com/#!/skjensen/status/96812388875120640

    The Bears signing of Jaguars WR Mike Sims-Walker is also a possibility soon.

    Williams obviously was a bust in Dallas catching only 94 balls for 1,324 yards and 13 touchdowns in 40 games in 3 seasons for the Cowboys.

    However, Williams did have 146 catches for 2,148 yards and 12 touchdowns in 28 games between 2006 and 2007 in Detroit when Mike Martz was the Lions offensive coordinator.

    Interesting move. Angelo will look like a genius if Williams shows up motivated and ready to prove his critics wrong. But if they get the same Williams who spent the last couple seasons in Dallas then it's a total bust. Sims-Walker would be a tremendous addition; he's an extremely underrated WR.

    Hopefully they didn't have to pay him much. Id rather see them land a starting caliber guard or tackle.

    Yeah, I wonder what they're doing as well. Another thing that didn't make sense was the Greg Olsen trade.

    Martz is a WR guy. TE's never catch many balls in his offense and he seems to like more of a blocking TE. So, getting rid of Olsen and bringing in Williams and Sims-Walker makes sense to me. Martz basically dismantled my Rams, though, so him getting his way is not always a good thing.

    Re: Chicago Bears to sign WR Roy Williams

    Roy Williams might not be the only big receiver being imported to Chicago from Dallas.

    Sam Hurd also could be joining him on the Chicago Bears, according to a report by Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.




    It was believed that the Cowboys wanted to bring Hurd back to be their third receiver after they cut Williams, but Hurd may like his opportunity in Chicago better.

    Hurd, 26, grew up in Texas, but went to college at Northern Illinois.

    At 6-2, 205, he is a tough possession receiver who does not have much deep speed. He also is a decent special teams player and he could be an ideal replacement for Rashied Davis, who agreed to terms with the Lions.

    Are the Bears going after Plaxico?

    Re: Chicago Bears to sign WR Roy Williams

    I'm fine with this. It's not ideal but he knows the Martz system and since players have so little time this year to learn a new playbook, this was probably best.

    It appears likely that Plaxico Burress will be playing for one of his two former teams, the New York Giants or the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to team and league sources.
    After a dinner with Giants coach Tom Coughlin on Friday night, Burress plans to fly to Pittsburgh to meet with coach Mike Tomlin, sources said.
    Sources believe only a productive, fence-mending meeting between Burress and Coughlin stands between the wide receiver rejoining the Giants and potentially making an incentive-laced $10 million over two years.
    However, Tomlin expects to make his own strong sales pitch for Burress to join the Steelers, who made him a first-round draft choice out of Michigan State in 2000, sources added.




    The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets also have expressed varying degrees of interest in Burress, according to sources.

    Re: Chicago Bears to sign WR Roy Williams

    I'd say both are good gets. Hurd showed a lot potential, good size and speed. Williams can be great, but he can also be terrible (dropping passes or fumbling the ball)

    I believe Hurd is a replacement for R. Davis...IE special teamer. He may get some reps at WR but we need ST guys and he is a good one. Roy isn't going to be helping our ST any.

    Yeah you just traded away your best receiver and got Roy Williams. Genius Mike. How about you change the offense and throw to TE's more instead of having them stay in and block. Martz is an overrated POS and this will be his last stop in coaching.

    Seriously Bears, why not even look into getting Plaxico? Need a big play receiver.
