Bears

When appearing on ESPN 1000’s Kap and J.Hood, Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer said he thinks the Bears will trade Justin Fields ahead of free agency given there will be fewer trade options as we get deeper into the offseason.

“In this case, I don’t think you necessarily need the premium to move Justin Fields before the start of free agency,” Breer said. “The reason why is because if you do wait til the end of March or the beginning of April, whatever it is, there are going to be far fewer teams that have a quarterback opening.”

LaFleur recalled being Mannion’s offensive coordinator on the Rams in 2017, where Mannion told him he’d eventually get into coaching.

“I love his past experience. I’ve coached him before in LA. I always figured he… expressed.

Packers

Packers’ new DC Jeff Hafley considers Green Bay to be the “mecca of the football world” and it feels surreal to be a part of the organization.

“As a guy that grew up loving football, it’s the Green Bay Packers,” Hafley said, via Steve Megargee of the Associated Press. “This is like the mecca of the football world to me and probably to most people who grew up loving football.
