ACROSS ENEMY LINES: Packers seek to reclaim part of Martellus Bennett’s signing bonus

KEEPING AN EYE ON THE RIVALS OF THE CHICAGO BEARS

Hi Chicago Bears Fanatics

It seems like many Chicago Bears faithful try to not only keep up with their favorite team the Bears, but also try to keep an eye on what the despised division enemies are up to, We decided to periodically check out what’s transpiring across the fence.

Here’s a link to keep you filled in on what the other teams in our division are up to

Packers seek to reclaim part of Martellus Bennett’s signing bonus

It’s no surprise that the team has officially filed paperwork with the league regarding the tight end’s contract.

The Martellus Bennett saga took another step forward today as the Green Bay Packers filed the necessary paperwork to seek to reclaim a portion of his signing bonus, per ESPN’s Rob Demovksy. The NFL Player’s Association said they were monitoring the situation, but had no additional comment.

This is not a surprise, as Bennett’s departure was extremely unusual and the NFL’s policy on unusual departures, such as retirement, or an undisclosed injury designation almost always involves arbitration of some point. NFL signing bonuses are guaranteed, however that guarantee is not absolute, and anything that is essentially a breach of the contract can bring the bonus back into play.

In this matter, the Packers contended during his release that Bennett did not properly disclose an injury, and his open discussions of wanting to retire at season’s end fed into the idea that he simply did not want to be there. That was especially so after “>

Chicago Bears bring back safety Chris Prosinski (FEATURED BEARS ARTICLE)

Featured Bears Post

There are such a lot of awesome Bears sites out there that every now and then I feel the urge to re-post some of the articles that I stumble on.

Enjoy!

Chicago Bears bring back safety Chris Prosinski

It looks like the Chicago Bears are getting the old band back together.

A day after claiming Lamarr Houston off of waivers, the Bears have signed safety Chris Prosinski (per his agent). Both new additions have been prompted due to some injuries to the Bears, but while Houston could see significant time on defense, I would imagine Prosinski is more for special teams depth.

The Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs is reporting that starting safety Adrian Amos could miss “significant” time with a hamstring injury, which could push Deon Bush into a starting role.

Back-up safety/special teamer DeAndre Houston-Carson is also dealing with an ankle injury, so Prosinski could fill his role in the third phase.

Bears vs. Eagles: Notes from a cringeworthy blowout (FEATURED BEARS ARTICLE)

Featured Bears Post

There are so many great Bears blogs out in cyberspace that once in a while I have to feature some of the articles that I come across.

Enjoy!

Bears vs. Eagles: Notes from a cringeworthy blowout

Almost nothing went right for the Bears in their showdown with the leaders of the NFC.

Maybe it’s for the best.

The Chicago Bears fell to 3-8 with their humiliating 31-3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. In doing so, they increased their draft position and turned up the already-blazing hot temperature on John Fox’s proverbial seat. However, it was still an unacceptable performance in all three phases. Here are a few of my notes from the game.

  • Akiem Hicks started the first possession off of a high note, having two tackles for a loss in a row. For someone who didn’t practice all week, you certainly couldn’t tell that on that drive.
  • You guys remember last week when I said that Tarik Cohen needs to make better decisions on special teams? This rings true again this week. He cost the Bears five yards by letting the opening punt bounce instead of going for the fair catch. Sure, their offense would’ve been backed up deep in their own territory either way, but even the smallest amount of yards count in those situations.
