Rashied Davis expects to be back in Chicago

Chicago Bears' Cutler and teammate Davis celebrate after a rushing touchdown against play against the Seattle Seahawks in Chicago AP

Bears fans want their team to make a splashy pickup at wide receiver, but that hasn’t been the team’s style in recent years.

They seem happy with what they have and seem more likely to spend elsewhere and make smaller moves at wideout.  Like retaining Rashied Davis.

“I got a feeling from them that they will be offering me something,” Davis told the Chicago Tribune recently. “Everything is talk until it is actually offered. It sounds good until it actually happens. I am hoping. Hopefully, I don’t have to pick my family up and move somewhere else.”

Chicago has a lot of free agents on special teams, so bringing back Davis makes sense.  Even if a lot of Bears fans disagree, the organization seems happy with Johnny Knox, Earl Bennett, Devin Hester, and guys like Davis filling in.

    I’m a Bears fan, and I never want to see Rashied Davis and his hands of stone in our uniform ever again. But since he’s one of Lovie’s guys, he’ll be here for at least another 2 years.

    While they’re all good receivers, none of them are elite.

    Knox has the potential to be an elite 2nd receiver and Bennett an excellent slot receiver but the number of times Cutler was picked off throwing to Knox in single coverage and he wasn’t tough enough was embarrassing.

    Go get Sidney Rice as soon as free agency begins.

    Forget Sidney Rice. He’s been a one-season wonder with injury issues. He will not be worth the price he eventually gets. The only reason to get him would be to deprive Minnesota.

    Davis is nothing special at WR, but he’s a solid special teams player and since ST is such an important part of the Bears game, having guys in there who have make the plays is vital.

    I don’t think the Bears should go out and spend big on any WR. Martz will not be here next season; Mike Tice will likely take over as OC when he’s gone and he’s a big run-first type of guy last I checked. Getting a big name WR would just mean drama next season when the emphasis is moved back to the run.

    Even if that’s not true, 2012′s crop of WR free agents is much better than this one. Let the current crop get another year experience, then add a guy. Here’s some of the guys due to become free agents after this season:

    Ochocinco (assuming he doesn’t get traded this season), Dwayne Bowe, Marques Colston, Larry Fitzgerald (assuming he isn’t tagged or resigned before then), Anthony Gonzalez, Reggie Wayne, Derrick Mason, Robert Meachem, Roscoe Parrish, Wes Welker.

    That is not the Bears problem their problem is they have to play THE GREAT DETROIT LIONS two times a year with a big and strong front four, can’t wait.

    Rashied Davis is a usefull 5′th WR who can play every special team well and is also a decent slot receiver. He’s good at doing what a 5′th WR is supposed to do.

    But some of my fellow Bears fans are still mad at him for dropping a half dozen passes like three years ago and have held it against him ever since. These are the same guys that think being 6-4 makes you a good receiver.

    Hey Soulman,

    A nice strong front four you may have, but you do realize it takes more than a defensive line to win, right?

    @lrt79
    All the Lions need to do is keep the QB on the field that have been the hard job.
