    They may have thought that but they were never actually told that like Butler has been. Big difference.

    Yeah, Kevin Butler was the former placekicker for the Bears, and father of the punter we had last season.

    Frazier could make a lot of sense...

    Both Frazier and Tomlin were Dungy assistants...

    Frazier has a zone blitz background as an assistant under DC Jim Johnson at Philadelphia...

    As a side note, Frazier led the 85 Bears in INTs...playing in Buddy Ryan's 46 defense...

    And he also led the 2013 Minnesota Vikings to a 5-10-1 record and the 31st ranked defense. No Thanks!

    I would like Frazier. IMO Jim Johnson's defenses in Philly were always attacking and innovative. IMO, a fresh look from the outside would greatly benefit this defense which has gotten stale and predictable.

    Dee Dub is right. "Kevin" Butler will be the DC when the position is left vacant by LeBeau.

    1. Butler has turned down DC positions because he is next in line to take the reigns from LeBeau

    2. He has been promised the job for years now.

    3. I have a gut feeling.
    2017 Mock

    1. T.J Watt, OLB/DE, Wisconsin - will be a huge mistake if available and we pass

    2. Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut

    3. Kevin King, CB, Washington

    3. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

    4. Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

    5. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

    6. Barry Sanders, RB, Oklahoma State (How can you go wrong with that name, however the sample size is so small that his dad may be better even in his 50's)

    7. Alec Torgersen, QB, Pennsylvania

    Six out of 9 seasons as a coach, Frazier's defense was in the bottom half of the league.

    No thanks.
