    What about this guy?

    If you google him he looked really good coming out of college. Maybe it was a numbers game but he is the same size as Brett with the Diesel' speed. Seems like a natural raw fit for a 3-4 DE.

    I was a huge Jarron Gilbert guy prior that draft. I thought he could be the prototypical 3-4 DE for us. I was really hoping that he would fall to us with the 64th pick in the 2nd round in all of my mocks that year. Well, he did, but we did not take him because we had already taken DE Ziggy Hood at #32. Instead, we traded our 2nd and 4th rounders to Denver for their 3 third rounders, and Jarron Gilbert went to the Bears shortly thereafter with the 4th pick in the 3rd round (didn't understand why they took him, since I did not see where he would fit in their 4-3...and it turns out he did not fit there). Instead, we took Kraig Urbik with the first of two Denver 3rd round picks ( ) but I can't argue about the trade too much because we got Mike Wallace with their others pick ( ).

    In related Bears cut news, they also released former Penn State LB Tim Shaw, who was a board favorite once upon a time. He hasn't shown much as a LB so far in his NFL career, but he has been a special teams standout (30 ST tackles last year in Chicago). We can always use special teams demons considering our special teams woes, but I don't see a spot for him considering our decision to keep 9 LB's already (and I wouldn't be willing to give up on the promise of Stevenson Sylvester to get a special teamer like Shaw).

    As I said in another post, the Steelers scouted every Bears preseason game. Gilbert is a possibility. Maybe Afalava in place of Mundy. It will be interesting to see who the steelers had their eye on.

    Blair White - WR, Mich. St. - Hines tough, good hands, good speed.

    Dre Moore - DT, UM - I think everybody had him on our roster coming out...not really cut out for Tampa defense.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    I like White, but we would not add him to our 53 man roster...and if he was going to go onto a practice squad, he'd likely prefer to stay in Indy, which seems like a really good situation for him (just got caught in a numbers game there, since they seem to be stacked with WR's right now).

    My guess is that Pete Carroll is giving the young guys a chance to learn as he rebuilds the Seahawks - however T.J. was the surest thing he had at WR -

    My guess is Leinart is on his way to Seattle as soon as the Cardinals drop him.

    L.B.
    Good guess, but Seattle has no interest in Leinart.

    You'd have to consider trying to find a place on the 53 man for Gilbert. At least give a hard push for a PS spot.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
