BOURBONNAIS – Phil Emery was brought in to replace Jerry Angelo in large part because of failed draft choices, particularly early round ones.
Gabe Carimi was going to report to the mandatory minicamp of the Bears this week. He will still be reporting, just not to the Bears.
One of the primary reasons why Jerry Angelo was let go as general manager and Lovie Smith was dismissed as head coach was the Bears’ failure to keep pace with the Green Bay Packers.
The stated hope of Bears general manager Phil Emery is for the opportunity to trade down in the draft commencing in just a couple of weeks.
