    Britton is the 17th returning Bear player of 29 total players signed since the end of the season. No other team comes close. Way to go Phil Emery and Cliff Stein!

    They used to say “In Gene we trust” in Jville…
    as in Gene Smith…former GM…who drafted Brittle…I mean Britton…2nd rd BUST and Gene Smith quite possibly had worst draft record of any GM in history of NFL

    I was glad they resigned him. He played well when he did step in. A waste as a 2nd rder, but if he stays healthy, a valuable reserve.
