Default Glenn Earl looks to be signing with the Bears

Meh.

On the same day new safety Josh Bullocks got his hands on a couple of passes, the Bears looked to add some more depth to the secondary.

The club gave safety Glenn Earl a physical after the conclusion of minicamp Thursday afternoon. The Naperville North and Notre Dame product could sign a contract today. Earl was one of five players participating in the three-day minicamp on a tryout basis.

Earl, who turns 28 in June, was a productive player for the Houston Texans and new secondary coach Jon Hoke before injuries took a toll. He made 31 starts through his first three seasons and had a career-high 74 tackles in 2006. Earl was knocked out with a torn Lisfranc ligament in his foot during the 2007 preseason in a game at Reliant Stadium. He was released by the Texans at the end of last summer.

Good for Earl, Naperville is just a short drive from Chicago. For him to return to his home city and play for Hoke again could be a good thing.

Looks like Hoke is trying his damnedest to screw the Bears secondary up.

Ha, I wouldn't be a bit surprised. You notice that the Texans haven't made an attempt to retain him once Hoke got fired? IMO, it's obvious Hoke kept him around.

Hoke didn't keep him around - he was cut back in August. He hasn't been Texan for quite a long time.

You're talking about Glenn Earl. Which is understandable, as this is a thread about Glenn Earl.

Drewmar74 & HOU-TEX were discussing Petey.

I don't know whether David Gibbs will succeed as the Texans secondary coach. I'm just glad he's here and Jon Hoke is gone.

We'll give you Earl if you'll take Faggins.

Deal:

Bears get: Earl

Texans get: rid of Faggins.

Wow, I read the entire thread to make sure he WAS talking about Earl - but failed to read the part of his post that he quoted - LOL.

Sorry about that, nothing to see here... Thanks for the clarification, Lucky.

I wish him good luck. I'll always remember that crunching hit he laid on Jeremy Shockey back in 06 vs. the Giants. One of the hardest hits in Texans history.
