Another day, another shrewd move by the Bears. Just two years into a 5-year deal, the Bears dealt Brian Griese back to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 2009 draft pick.
I can't imagine how this deal could have gone any better.
First of all, we don't have to pay Griese's $300,000 bonus. We also don't have to deal with yet another mediocre QB creating a controversy next year. We save cash, and best of all, we get something BACK -- and all we did was borrow him from the Bucs for two years!
Unfortunately, the Bears also announced that they have no plans to pursue Ayanbadejo, so we'll see if the Bears have some mast plan (if any) on what to do with the money surplus.
My guess? Re-negotiate contracts with Harris, Urlacher and Hester, and spend the rest of the offseason planning for the draft.
Lord help us if we don't get an offensive lineman...
