According to ESPN’s Adm Schefter, he wouldn’t be surprised to see current Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochcocino land with the Chicago Bears. This would definately giveJay Cutler a viable number one target for the first time since joining the Bears. Schefter had the following comments from a fan Q&A on his blog.
” I also wouldn’t completely dismiss the possibility of Chad Ochocinco landing there[Chicago], since Cincinnati is not expected to pay him $6.25 million this season,” wrote Schefter. ”I will say that I believe Chicago’s wide receivers are a bit better than most people think. The Bears can win, and have won, with the receivers they have. But to get another big receiving threat, particularly if it were to weaken a division opponent such as Minnesota — and the Vikings did the same thing to the Bears when they signed away Bernard Berrian — would help Cutler and Chicago. It’s likely the Bears will make a play on one of those [Plaxico Burress, Sidney Rice] big receivers.”
I do agree with Schefter that the Bears receivers are pretty good and can get the job done. But if they were able to acquire Ochocinco it would open up more opportunities for guys like Johnny Knox, Greg Olsen and Devin Hester.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
