Bears bag a punter


We haven’t done a lot of punting posts during this free agency frenzy, but Adam Podlesh deserves a big one for coming up with the best post-signing tweet we’ve seen yet.

Podlesh agreed to a five-year contract with the Bears Thursday, leaving Jacksonville despite being a “priority” for the Jaguars.  So what convinced him to join the Bears?

“I knew it was a done deal when they included a dinner with Abe Froman #thesausagekingofchicago,” Podlesh wrote.

Froman gets all the best reservations.

UPDATE: Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports Podlesh will get $10 million

    I smell a Bratwurst endorsement contract. Or maybe I just smell Bratwurst. Time for lunch.

    That has to be one of my favorite things I’ve read all week. I busted out laughing here in the school library. I can’t wait to see him play this fall.

    Great!!! Maybe now we can stop sitting on our hands and go get some football players.

    Punting in Chicago weather is quite a bit different than punting in Jacksonville.

    Don’t be overconfident. It remains to be seen how good Podlesh can be at Red Zone punting.

    I am sure he is a good punter, but Angelo needs to get his head out of his ass and sign some talent that will be on the field more than 6 times a game.

    Guards. Need Guards. And Kreutz.

    10 million for a punter? dumb.

    Sausage King? Oh man, I’m blushing after that. #PodleshYouFreak.

    At least this kid has a sense of humor and a grasp of pop culture references, Hope he can punt though.

    He’s an adequate punter, but certainly not worth that price tag. Cant’ think of one who is. Congrats to Pods for sticking it to the Bears and securing some of that sausage.

    hahahaha, beuller, that made my day

    Average punter… above average golfer. He’ll be lost without his BFF Scobee
