Bears Sign Danny Trevathan

| March 9th, 2016

Jan 12, 2014; Denver, CO, USA; Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan (59) during the 2013 AFC divisional playoff football game against the San Diego Chargers at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports UPDATE 1. Adam Schefter broke the news of the signing on Twitter. Trevathan was the most logical free agency target for the Bears as they faced a glaring need in the middle of their defense. Is Trevathan great? Not really. But he improves a unit in desperate need of improvement.

UPDATE 2.

    first!

  • The Yes Guy

    YES!!!!!

  • Third, as in Tre!

    Any contract details? Hopefully it’s not more than $10M/yr.

    With so much Shea activity swirling around, thought he would’ve got signed before Tre (sarcasm, off)

    • Sactowns#1

      I heard $90mil for 6 years. (Gulp!) Lets hope that’s a lot of incentive pay and loaded towards the back end so we have more money to play with this off season.

      • AlbertInTucson

        90 for 6 was what I just hear Jackson got from J’Ville.

        • willbest

          Holy Hell too many teams flush with cash and too few FAs to spend it on.

          • AlbertInTucson

            If you’re an also ran, you’re going to have to pay more to attract quality players.

      • MB30SD

        for OPS?

      • Sactowns#1

        Ah I think the google may have lied to me. That article now has been changed and doesn’t have any contract details.

    • Trac

      C’mon butch, repost it! Ju can du eet!

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      my guess is 4 years 30+ mill around 8 mill a year. just a guess

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    Mohammed Sanu to get 7m a year from the Falcons.
    Between that and the Jones contract with the Lions, I’m starting to wonder if there is a doppelganger NFL that I’m not watching.
    The guy caught 33 for 394 last year with NO touchdowns! What in the sam hill is he getting that kind of dough for???

    • willbest

      Irish still won’t admit that AJ is worth 14 mil a year though.

      • MikeBrownhadaPosse

        He’d just say we could buy two Sanus for the price of one Jeffery.
        Problem being, that just leaves you with two Sanus.

        • MB30SD

          hahaha

      • Irish Sweetness

        We’ll see what he’s worth next year? How many games he plays ….

    • AlbertInTucson

      And a LOT of Cincy fans won’t miss Sanu.

  • BC in Tampa

    4 year deal for Danny T.

    • willbest

      Surprised he didn’t insist on 3. He is still 25.

      • BC in Tampa

        He’ll be 26 in a few weeks, pretty sure teams take that into account.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    Bobby Massie signed. per bleacher report.

    • Sactowns#1

      So Long at right guard or left tackle?

      • MB30SD

        guard I hope

        • MikeBrownhadaPosse

          That’s what Jahns says…Long back to RG, Massie at tackle.

          • Sactowns#1

            Sounds about right. We still need to solve the LT puzzle then because idk if Leno is exactly a long term solution.

    • willbest

      Massie was suspended for substance abuse for 2 games last season.

      • MB30SD

        meh, who cares. was he any good?

        • Sactowns#1

          Yes. And I’m sure it was something stupid like weed.

          • MB30SD

            DUI

          • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

            ha

          • Sactowns#1

            I just read the above article, it was even dumber than weed. Jeesh

          • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

            Sac, you need to get in the medical marijuana game man. They say that if you do what you love it’s not even work!

          • Sactowns#1

            I’m listening….

          • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

            lol, I’m not in the field myself but I’d imagine that it would be similar to me crafting a Caribbean rum and continually sampling and letting others sample and to be paid for it on top of it.

        • willbest

          The pre-FA buzz is he would be looking for 8 million a year, which means he would need to be top 20.

      • MikeBrownhadaPosse

        And the story of how is sort of hilarious as far as DUI arrests go.
        https://www.facebook.com/AdamSchefter/posts/1029129900472984

        • willbest

          lol. No wonder he wants out of Arizona.

          • MB30SD

            ZERO tolerance.

            My chick friend is from scottsdale and she says it’s intense

          • willbest

            Yeah but he sort of more or less tried to do the right thing.

          • 505Bears

            Yeah, I was in Scottsdale a few weeks back and my hotel was like 1 minute from downtown Scottsdale. The concierge told me not to take a chance driving at all, no matter the distance if I was going to be drinking even 1 beer. Needless to say, I used the hotel shuttle a bit

          • MB30SD

            check out this service called… “Uber”, great little idea. ; )

          • 505Bears

            You don’t say? Is it some sort of German thing?

          • MB30SD

            Jes

          • 505Bears

            Haha, I tried Uber a few times, not bad. Though when I was in Chicago and tried the Uber, dude never showed up!!

          • MB30SD

            MUCH better than being raped.

          • willbest

            Apparently you get raped by uber drivers. Unless you are an female indian (dot) Doctor. Then you just bludgeon them with your purse because caste privilege or something.

          • MB30SD

            I’m down with caste privilege

          • BC in Tampa

            In FL we carry, so I’m not getting raped by anyone!

          • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

            yeah, it’s pretty reasonable. I let my last Uber driver molest me a bit and he took 30% off the bill. What a guy.

          • Johnnywad

            The Uber drivers we have in SW Michigan apparently stop between fares and shoot innocent people in parking lots, then go pick up other customers, drop them off, and go shoot some more people.

            Uber is a great way to either meet a dude in the middle of a shooting spree, or end up in a freezer in some creepy fucker’s basement while he makes soup with your balls.

          • MB30SD

            stooop it.

          • Johnnywad

            Swear.

            http://news.yahoo.com/michigan-uber-driver-charged-six-murders-competency-exam-162415005–finance.html

            Fucker shot and killed my son’s classmate and his father. Dude shot 8 people in three different locations over six hours……and picked up Uber customers in between. That’s a pretty serious level of fucked up in the head.

          • MB30SD

            I know my maings. Sorry for yours and your boy’s loss. sucks, brutal, unfair, horrible, and a lot more.

            I just meant, one evil crazy fuck shouldn’t ruin a good business service for you.

          • Johnnywad

            Nah. I don’t mean to overstate my grief here. I didn’t know the kid or his dad at all. My son barely did. It’s just a bit different when its up close.

            I’ve never used Uber. But I’ve always felt it’s problematic because there is no physical oversight. No network of coworkers. At least at a cab company, somebody might notice a dude careening off the rails before he starts taking the safety of others in his hands.

            Additionally, I’ve always thought there isn’t much of a safety network in place for the Uber drivers. Does anybody even know when they come and go? Or if they fail to return at all? The while thing just seems ripe for trouble to me.

            Then again, I hate pretty much all forms of transportation that don’t involve driving myself.

          • Sactowns#1

            I would burn my jersey the day my team called the cops on me.

          • willbest

            Well maybe over a murder or rape. But for sleeping off a DUI in your car in the team’s parking lot….

          • Sactowns#1

            If I’m helping to make you tens of millions of dollars a year, I should be able to kill at least one staff member.

      • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

        who among us hasn’t abused substances……as recently as last night!

        • MB30SD

          it’s all about whether you’re caught. Everything is legal until you get caught.

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          last night??? shit i been drinking since noon.

          • BillW

            It’s OK as long as you don’t abuse your alcohol. Treat it with the respect it deserves.

          • Huge Bear’s Penis

            I only abuse it verbally. don’t want to leave any marks that would get me in trouble.

          • MB30SD

            smart plan!

  • Sactowns#1

    Have we heard any rumors about which D linemen may be on the Bears radar?

    • MB30SD

      I am a tard today. jesus

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    Jeez, Bobby, I’ve never been so lit I didn’t know what state I was in.
    “The 305-pound offensive lineman told police he had been impaired by alcohol every day for the last ten years, but also said he did not believe he has an alcohol problem, the report said.

    When asked if he took any medications, Massie volunteered that he “smoked,” later explaining that he smoked “weed” but did not recall the last time he did so, according to the report.

    The report said that Massie appeared confused when he was questioned during the course of the investigation and his answers indicated he thought he was in Virginia; police reminded him that he was in Arizona.”

    • BillW

      So maybe this guy is a risk?

      • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    • SC Dave

      Sounds kike a winner

    • Bender McLugh

      This is one of the funniest things I’ve read in 2016.

  • BC in Tampa

    We just won Free Agency, Nick Becton is coming aboard folks, DL in our division better watch the hell out!!!

    • MB30SD

      who?

      (BC breaking the SCOOP!)

  • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

    I know this is crazy but if they re-signed Urine and had him focus on just being a fullback that would be sick. The fucking guy was in for 8 plays and they scored on all 8. I believe that is the stat.

    • MB30SD

      i agree. do it!

  • 505Bears

    Did you see the number Olivier Vernon got from the Giants?! WOW!!!

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      Biggest DE contract ever? For a guy with 7.5 sacks last year?
      I should’ve taken alot more HGH in grade school.

    • willbest

      He was on the transitional tag so Dolphins just let him go and are going to apparently run with Wake instead. bonkers.

  • BillW

    From what I can find (that is, next to nothing) it seems like the Packers weren’t serious about Forte. I’m sure the Packer fans ho thought he’d help them will now say they are glad they didnt’ get him.

    Ted Thompson is at some scouting event – no intention of signing anyone apparently.

    Every team has their own issues – the lack of urgency with a HOF QB would kill me if that were the Bears.

  • BC in Tampa

    Of Course we could have just drafted Massie 4 years ago! Anyone remember (without Google) who we took in the 4th round instead (when we needed OL help no less)?

    • willbest

      The tight end we used as a FB. Rodriguez or something. He got into trouble with the police and we cut him.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    Bears resigned jacquizz rodgers.

    • willbest

      solid!

      • Sactowns#1

        The jizz remains. It’s kinda hard to get rid of actually.

        • willbest

          Wouldn’t know, cleaning that stuff is woman’s work.

  • Cutty of Mt. Olivet Nazarene

    The best part about having a coach like Fox and bringing in a player like Trevathan is that they already know why Trevathan was so successful. They know what kind of DL need to be in front of him to let him use his aggression and speed. You can bet some serious man meat mountain is coming to Chi-Town. I want a revolutionary new lineup of three 340lb dudes across the middle and sick little hybrid animals like Myles Jack running around and penetrating holes.

    • MikeBrownhadaPosse

      I bet you do, playa.

      • MB30SD

        he loves penetrating holes with his man meat

    • Sactowns#1

      Bully old chap, bully I say!

  • willbest

    Indy isn’t going to fix that o-line in the draft and they are doing jack all in FA. They are doing an impressive job at wasting Luck. Meanwhile Houston and Jax are loading up for playoff runs.

  • Huge Bear’s Penis

    Porter resigned also

  • MikeBrownhadaPosse

    New thread. Jeff is on fire.
