#Bears to sign DL Amobi Okoye to 1-year contract, per @vxmcclure23.
Somebody thinks he is not so bad.
Honestly, good system for him.
A one-year contract isn't exactly indicative of thinking high thoughts about that player but good for him.
called it in the other thread....i'm like the naked adam schefter of this board.
It's a low risk high reward situation for Chicago on a 1 yr. contract.
Well they sure picked him up quickly. Somebody in Chicago likes him.
didn't they bring in vernon gholsten as well?
So, Naked Adam Schefter, who else do you think the Texans will sign?
So it is officially a terrible pick for the Texans now.
Yes, but it took Kubiak and Co. way to long to realize it.
I'll miss him...
Best of luck to Amobi. He may have not seen the success on the field we were all hoping for (and expecting) but he really is a great guy. Hope he does well in the NFC.
My sources tell me kubiak is really interested in a big, hard bruiser that will penetrate his backfield.
Best of luck to their new Nigerian Nightmare!!
The statement he made upon his release was 100%, pure class. I will never root against him.
I wish Amobi the best. I wouldn't be disappointed one bit if he finally emerges as a Bear.
So what do you guys think happened to him? His first 6 games as a rookie, we all thought we had the next Warren Sapp.
lol! I guess I can finally call him a bust without someone rushing to his defense. I never liked the pick. Thought it was a reach on draft day, simply because we had so many more holes to fill than using a pick on a 'project player' that is supposed to mature in 4-5 years.
He'll probably kick ass in Chicago now that we've trained him through his years that most players are in college.
I think it was a terrible pick, but I still think he can be a good player. I like the guy, so I hope he does. Then he'll have more money to build hospitals and stuff.
Okoye is a solid run stopper in a 4-3 system. If you ask him to stay home and play the run he is fine. He cannot be a passrusher.
