    Re: Archuleta released

    Kinda sad to read this about 'ol Arch; but I wonder if it is more a case that Craig Steltz has just looked that good. And if that is the case are we going to regret passing on him like we did several times in the 4th round this past draft?

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Not sure why we'd want to sign him. We have youth at OLB after the draft, and Arch simply is not going to give us anything at strong safety at this point.

    What a bust. I really liked him when he was drafed by the Rams.

    Archuleta

    In a surprising move, the Chicago Bears released safety Adam Archuleta, a little more than a year after they acquired him in a trade.


    Bears coach Lovie Smith, who developed Archuleta into a defensive star in St. Louis, called Archuleta on Tuesday and told him he would be released. For Smith, the decision was a tough one. Being a fan of Archuleta, Smith was hoping to find a way to make it work this season for the veteran safety.

    Craig Steltz, the Bears' fourth-round pick, looked good at the team's weekend minicamp and was the one of the main reasons for Archuleta's release. The Bears are deep at safety. Veteran free safety Mike Brown is back from injury. Safeties Brandon McGowan and Danieal Manning fit in well with the defense. Plus, the Bears also like Kevin Payne, a fifth-round pick from a year ago.

    That left little opportunity for Archuleta, a 30-year-old former first-round pick of the Rams. Archuleta started 10 games last year and had 61 tackles.

    John Clayton is a senior writer for ESPN.com.

    He had 61 tackles. the Bears have a very good D. He will get another shot.

    He can't give us a thing. He's always been a liability in coverage and age hasn't helped that any. His hands have always been stone. His tackling was always spotty and I think it's only gotten worse. We don't need to pick up washed-up players for nostalgia's sake.

    No question that he'll sign on somewhere else, maybe for a vet minimum now? He'll certainly get a better shot at playing on a different roster.
