Bears Apparently Out of Burress Sweepstakes

I don't know about you, but even with Jay Cutler I am not really worried about the Chicago Bears right now. I personally think that Cutler is a tad overrated, and don't think his appearance in a Bears uniform is going to make them a playoff team. That being said, Cutler has performed well with decent receivers such as Brandon Marshall and Eddie Royal, and I think if the Bears were to get Plaxico Burress I would start to become a little more concerned.

Right now, the Bears wide receiver depth chart is littered with guys I've never heard of and then Devin Hester, who can't even catch. But if you put Plaxico Burress in that mix? The Bears offense becomes a little more threatening, and then I'd be a little more worried.

Burress is looking for a nice, healthy one-year deal similar to the $6.5 million T.O. was able to get from the Bills, and it sounds as if the Bears aren't interested in paying that much. However, Florio says that this report could just be a rouse by the Bears in their efforts to ultimately sign him.

Because if things remain they way they are with Cutler having nobody to throw to, the Lions flipping between Culpepper and Stafford, and the Vikings getting ready to throw their season away with Brent Favre, things are looking good for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to storm through the NFC North this season.
