Now that the Bears have addressed concerns at quarterback and offensive line, can we please, pretty please, pretty please with the sugar on top, get a wide receiver? Jay Cutler may have the greatest arm in the world, and the offensive line may give him all day to throw, but without someone to catch those passes, this whole offseason spending spree will have been for naught.
Orlando Pace is lobbying for his former teammate, Torry Holt, to join the team. Holt was cut by St. Louis at the same time as Pace. Though he is on the verge of his tenth season in the NFL, his production has stayed mostly level, save last season, where he, like the team he was playing for, had a bad year. Pace is playing his part as a salesman for the Bears in trying to get Holt in the navy and orange.
Though this is a good draft for receivers -- Missouri's Jeremy Maclin is looking better and better every day -- that's not an option for Chicago. With the Bears burning up so many draft picks in the acquisition of Cutler, free agency will be the best way to go in getting a receiver.
