    There is the FB. Wonder if the FO will sign any of the recently cut CBs?

    I really hope this doesn't mean Ball made the cut.

    Also, I'm hearing conflicting reports that Clutts was cut outright from Chicago?..

    I thought McMannis did generally well on special teams coverage. We will miss his speed there.

    Clutts is a very good blocking FB that can catch the ball out of the backfield. He is a great ST guy, but I believe he's coming off of an ACL injury.

    We need a FB, and McMannis has the value to make this trade works.

    I preferred McMannis over Carmichael at the moment for his overall game, but I do think that the Roc has the potential to be a better cover corner.

    I don't know much about Clutts, but I can't help but feel like this means we're keeping Ballsack.:wadepalm:

    If so, he suffered it in the final game, as he was active in the Bears final game last season.

    Chicago fans say he can't really catch or run the ball but he crushes linebackers a DB's pretty well.
