The Bears signed their 8th TE in Chris Pantale who was with the New York Jets and played the final five games of the 2014 season. He played at Boston College , he was the 18th ranked TE for the 2013 draft. Here is the scouting report:
Cory Wooten is still unemployed and is visiting the Detroit Lions. San Francisco is showing interest in Lance Briggs and Lovie claimed Khaseem Greene.
Lastly, while I normally don't write on other teams, I had to comment on Tom Brady's recent suspension. While it is for four games and the appeal will probably get it down to two. I feel it's a just suspension based on the simple premise of obstruction. Tom can't deny he did not obstruct the Wells folks, he refused to hand over electronic devices, his meeting with the Wells team came off as evasive. While on the whole it might not seem like a lot, but there is precedence here. During the "Bountygate" deal on of the Saints LB, Hargrove did not cooperate fully and was handed an 8 game suspension that was knocked down to 4.
The sad fact of all this is no matter what Tom Brady knew or did not know, his legacy as the greatest will always have a cloud over it. Everyone can say what they want, but he is tarnished. Years to come when we wax on about what a great QB he was, eyebrows will raise and the soft murmur of, "but ..." will be heard. Much like today when you mention, McGwire, Bonds, Sosa and other seemingly tainted super stars. All the hard work, Super Bowl rings, beautiful wife and family it comes down to 1 psi and the legacy is stained irretrievably.
On a positive note, the Cutler's are expecting child number 3!
