08:01 AM ET 06.07 | Lovie Smith isn't stopping at merely retaining would-be free agent Bears. Among the Bears' potential free agents are center Olin Kreutz, defensive tackle Anthony Adams, linebackers Pisa Tinoisamoa and Nick Roach, safety Danieal Manning, punter Brad Maynard and special teams ace Corey Graham. ... The Bears also plan on making additions in free agency. Smith says the Bears can go a number of different ways. "I've heard speculation about big receiver, offensive linemen, defensive end, cornerback, linebacker," he said. "When you look at our roster right now, with guys we don't have signed now, you can make a case for quite a few positions. We're always trying to improve our ballclub. I'll say all of the above."

Good thing the ViQueens suck...

Otherwise, DaBears would be in a world of hurt.

Beware the Kitties.

True. The Motor City Kitties will restore the roar!

495 Free Agents will hit the market at one time. It will look like the old Chinese fire drill. Add in over 250 just drafted players without contracts and it should be very interesting.

Too bad there's not a good GM on the free agent market.

I think this will be Lovie's last season.

No doubt. Jerry Angelo should approach this FA period as if his job depended on it. Which it should.

A loud "meow" this season, if there is a season, and if Stafford can stay vertical.

Nice.

Actually, if the context of the story is that the Bears are willing to spend top $$$ for free agents, that is a little newsworthy. Jerry Angelo never met a free agency Blue Light Special he didn't like.
