Bears keep adding cornerback depth, of sorts

With weeks before the start of unrestricted free agency (and hours before the wink-nod black market opens, with agents and teams congregating in Indianapolis), teams are working the fringes of their rosters.

And the Bears are adding depth at cornerback, whether that means anything about their plans or not.

The latest is Derricus Purdy, a former undrafted rookie from Texas Southern, according to Jeff Dickerson of

The Bears have signed two other corners to futures deals this offseason, C.J. Wilson and Demontre Hurst.

One could denote that as a sign of some turnover anticipated, since Charles Tillman, Zack Bowman, Sherrick McManis and Kelvin Hayden are all slated to become unrestricted free agents.

That leaves Tim Jennings and a lot of questions, which won’t be answered for weeks and months to come.

    Tillman will be back.

    Emery caught too much heat with the way the Urlacher situation was handled. (I completely agree with the way it was handled-Urlacher was past his prime.)

    well, they need somebody to try and hang with their receivers during practice.

    Emery didn’t catch that much heat on Urlacher. Tillman will be back….if he’s willing to accept the Bear’s price, or negotiate towards a price both sides can live with. Otherwise Tillman won’t be resigned.

    I’m a Tillman fan and hope he’s resigned……but I don’t think Emery will or won’t based on Urlacher.
