The Bears also released tight end Brandon Manumaleuna and agreed to terms with former Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth Thursday.

  • James Omalley

    STUPED TRADE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Mark, Sterling

      It has the potential to be. But it really depends on what they got for him.

    • Meatless Meatball

      Dat dern Cutman sucks! Bring back dat dere Orkman!

  • Eric Baum

    Great trade. We get rid of a player who doesn’t fit the Martz system, and hopefully get some good o-line help in return. Olsen didn’t have much of a future here anyway.

  • Jim Mauzey

    It’s a hard one for me to swallow. Olsen was Cutler’s security blanket. If we did get
    O-line help – it might be worth it.

  • Cameltoe Rancher

    Hope it isn’t another second-string Carolina offensive lineman like Omalye. He is real BAAAAAD!

  • Stew Pidd

    Grait Trade!!

  • Brandon

    Way to make a weak offense weaker!!!! Great job Jerry!!!!

  • Larry

    Who is going to go out drinking with Cutla now? Oh no!

    • Cameltoe Rancher



  • D.O

    Olsen had a terrible pass attempt to catch ratio. Its fine that he’s gone.

  • Jim

    Trade Martz

  • val

    I hope we are loading up for something…….we are running out of players to throw to……Wait a minute we have 26 undrafted players to sift through.I feel better now…
