Chester Taylor to Bears

Recommended Posts

BRULEDRIFTER

From Rotoworld:

Bears agreed to terms with RB Chester Taylor on a four-year, $12.5 million contract, including $7 million guaranteed.

Matt Forte becomes a committee back, and it's believed he may even lose his starting job. Kevin Jones, who missed all of 2009 with a serious ankle injury, will likely be released. Taylor is going on age 31 and managed just 3.6 yards per carry last season, but has caught at least 41 passes in four of the last five years. He'll be the immediate favorite for passing-down duties, which is a vital role in pass-happy play-caller Mike Martz's system.

4-year $12.5M deal. How does free agency work for us this year as far as losing someone before we can sign another? Can we now go after a $12.5M free agent?

Bears are trying to get themselves a team, huh.

31 year old running back with few carries and alot of experience, never the feature back, maybe just can't remember.

He will be good for them, good luck Chester and thanks.

Yes, we can spend up to that amount for an UFA lost to another team on an UFA of our own. I am torn on this--love Taylor, but he is a little long in the tooth and we can plug Harvin in on 3rd downs, too (not just in Wildcat, either). We may end up securing some D-secondary or O-line talent that we would not have otherwise because of this deal. Taylor fetched more than I thought he would, and as much as he meant to us last year, we are pretty deep on O and can move ahead more or less unscathed. Look for AP to vastly improve his ball-handling this year!

BOOOOOOO

I'm the biggest AP fan in the state, but very sorry to see him go, especially to a division rival. mad

Did I hear that they got Peppers too?

Not a good day for the Purple. They just aquired at least one loss on the schedule, maybe 2 next year.

I liked C Taylor, I would have did what I could to resign him. The only good thing is now we can get a free agent here and still have some to choose from.

You forget who they have throwing the ball down there, DTRO.

The Bears SUCK! Taylor is an [PoorWordUsage] for signing with them, he obviously doesn't want a chance at a ring, just the Ching and Bling!

plus my lions added Vanden Bosch, Burleson, and Corey Williams

Add in Suh or McCoy and a CB like Wilson, McCourty or Robinson, and the defense is on a complete 180 from last year

woo, on the road to mediocrity!

Pretty sure that will have zero affect on Favres decision.

Im sad to see Chester go. He was rock steady.

He was a rock...and will be missed more than some may think. Congrats to him on a great deal as it will more than likely be his last. At that price, the Vikes had no choice but to wish him the best.

I see Westbrook in Purple next year as his replacement for ALOT less $$$. If he stays healthy...he's better than Chester.

I havent looked it up...i wonder how much it would cost to get Thomas Jones in town? Maybe he is going to get to much $$ to bring in to be a backup.

Peppers signing with the Bears means at least 2 more games of embarrassment for McKinnie.

I believe you meant C Taylor and not AP Dtro.

I was hoping maybe Peppers might come to MN.

As long as AP can stay healthy, it maybe a ok trade but I would rather have seen him go to a non divisional team.

Not really a big loss. I liked Taylor but we have a couple guys already waiting in the wings. He was a third down back and you don't pay a 31 year old third down back $4 million a year.

Good player but easily replaced.

I'll be interested to see where they go from here. Maybe they are better off keeping an in house player like Albert Young and spending the free agent money on a safety or corner.

I would like them to find a CB in free agency, or via trade. I would like them to go offensive line in the first round, then a qb in the second, line backer in the 3rd, then defensive line 4th, and 5th. We have a couple good young RB that will step in for Taylor, I am not to concerned with that.

Kinda' sad to see him go...wouldn't be as bad if it wasn't a division rival. I wouldn't mind going after westbrook, but I think albert young will be just fine as the backup. Would definitely like to go after a good Dback with free agency, then use the 1st round pick for a D lineman (or vice versa).

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.
    • BrianF
      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
