The Bears may be “hot on” Phil Loadholt, but that doesn’t mean they’re cool on everyone else.
According to Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com, the Bears are looking at Jake Long and Jermon Bushrod as well, in hopes of clearing up a long-standing line problem.
Whether that’s instead of or in addition to the Loadholt talk from earlier today (which may be a way to jack up the price on the Vikings for a right tackle), the one thing that’s clear is how intent the Bears are on giving Jay Cutler better protection.
They’ll have competition for Long (likely from the Rams), while Bushrod comes with familiarity to new Bears offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer.
Either way, the Bears seem intent on spending some money on blockers and upgrading over J’Marcus Webb.
