    Default Stephen Gostkowski

    The last signing the Bears should make this free agency aside from contract extensions.

    You aren't with the program.

    It's not about getting the pieces needed, or filling all spots.

    Free Agency is only about signing guys whose names the fans know.

    we need to "waste" a draft pick on a kicker. Cant put 10 million into the position as badly as we need it.

    To me, itís a no-brainer. You have two 7ths. Pick a kicker with one. A kicker will actually probably have a bigger impact on your team than almost any other 7th rounder you could get. Can anyone name many long-term impact 7th rounders who arenít kickers?

    Meh, fair enough. Those are solid guys. I still if you’ve got two 7ths, and your kicking game is atrocious, you should grab a kicker if there’s a guy you really like. As we’ve seen, it can severely impact your season.

    at that point the draft is almost over and contact have already been made to these guys and you can get a feeling if you're able to sign one of them as an udfa.

    chances are they will see the opportunity with the bears and likely sign as an udfa 2 hours after the draft ends.

    I think the depth of coaches up athletic talent of yesteryear left a chance to draft a kicker, whereas today you have more players who could potentially develo into someone with that pick. As well as more kickers.

    A year ago none of us saw the Raiders letting Mack go. And then when talks of trading him started none of us saw the Bears trading for him either.

    I agree. Pats let Vinatieri go. they will let Gostkowski go. It would be nice to have confidence in the kicking game moving forward into their "window"

    He probably won't. But it's not out of the realm of possibility.

    Would rather have Justin Houston but if the Bears miss out on Houston then Gostowski would be fine

    At this point, I can't see Pace spending a significant amount of money at the position. I wouldn't be shocked if he signed someone like Younghoe Koo and a UDFA as well. Let the two along with Blewitt and Jones battle it out.

    I agree about the money allocation. I think heíll draft one and bring in some UDFA. There will be a lot of competition.

    You also have to factor in that the offense should take another step this year. They werenít very good last year. They should put up more points this season. Especially if they get a more consistent running game.
