    Would you sign Tank Johnson

    If the Bears do release Tank Johnson do you think that the Rams should put a waiver claim in for him?

    I think that the Rams should, he is having some problems but he is an upgrade over everyone we have on the interior DL. If the Rams make a playoff run Johnson will help.

    I agree, I think we should. He's a huge upgrade over what we got at the moment, and frankly, what do we have to lose? I doubt they'll release him though...

    "some problems"? ...Now that's an understatement. He has had several recurring problems with guns and the law. You'd think he'd learn by now. I don't know if I would roll the dice with a player with his kind of "issues". He has some definite character flaws....

    I don't know that he's much of an upgrade. It seems to me we need to build the position from the draft. Though more risky, it is in the short term cheaper.

    He has less issues then Leonard Little. And who cares about how expensive it might be I am not for drafting a DT unless we get Alan Branch. FAs are the way to go when dealing with DTs.

    Re: Would you sign Tank Johnson

    Are there reports that he might be released? That seems unlikely to me.

    Their are a lot of the sources that think that Johnson might be released. They even mentioned it during the broadcast.

    If the Bears were to release a player like Tank Johnson during this time of the season with the type of season they are having makes Johnson look as bad as or worse than T.O. in my eyes, I would stay away.

    1. Leonard Little, Tank Johnson. One of them is currently under criminal investigation.......and it ain't Little.
    2. Who cares how expensive it might be? The Rams, hopefully.
    3. Branch is the top pick, no doubt. Yet, there is a possibility that more than one DT will produce from this draft.
    4. DTs from FA is like any other position....some work out, some don't. But DTs do manage to get drafted as well. Since 2001 all but 2 of the league's Pro Bowl DTs have been acquired by draft, and not FA.

    Agreed, maybe someone can explain to me why he'd be such a huge upgrade over what we have. He's a good player, but I'm not convinced he provides enough of an upgrade to make you look past his off the field concerns.

    Bears | Ta. Johnson afraid he'll be off the team due to recent events - from www.KFFL.com
    Sun, 17 Dec 2006 11:00:04 -0800

    Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo is furious with DT Tank Johnson because of his recent legal troubles. Johnson was arrested late last week for possessing firearms without proper identification and Johnson's friend was shot dead the next night at a nightclub with Johnson present. Angelo is so furious that Johnson fears he will be off the team. The team will meet early this week to decide Johnson's future with the organization. The Bears are also talking to the NFL to find out what punitive freedom they have under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement. They have also been doing research and re-checks of past psychological evaluations of Johnson to make what they think is a proper decision regarding his future. Johnson claims he was taking his friend's belongings to him the night of the shooting and did not actually see the incident, but he is cooperating with police and is not a suspect. The police say Johnson had nothing to do with the crime itself.

    I doubt they release him, Angelo will calm down in a few days and make a rational decision, not an emotional decision.

    We dont need this guy. I would however, like to look into signing warren sapp if it can be done on the cheap. I think that he can still play a bit. Sapp ONLY on the cheap, please dont bash me for wanting another old guy like glover.

    That's something! I really think he'd be a good idea, at least take him in. That'd be great to have a guy from the Bears defense, maybe show some of the guys a better technique he learned from Lovie, the man!? Who knows!?
