Veteran defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois played for defensive coordinator Vic Fangio when Fangio was with the 49ers and spent some time this weekend meeting with Fangio’s current team.

According to multiple reports, Jean-Francois paid a visit to the Bears. Jean-Francois, who was released by the Redskins last week, left the meeting without agreeing on a contract.

Jean-Francois spent two years playing for Fangio with the 49ers before he moved onto the Colts as a free agent. He spent two years in Indianapolis and two years in Washington before once again hitting the open market this week. He’ll move on to a meeting with the Seahawks.

The Bears have signed John Jenkins as a free agent this offseason while Cornelius Washington left for the Lions.

  1. Hard to imagine the Bears will be a better team than the Seahawks any time soon so if the money’s equal he’s likely signing with Seattle. The Bears have already paid out all the big money they are likely to this FA season so I doubt they will make a serious attempt to outbid Seattle for his services.

  2. Must be asking for a lot of money or if He thinks Seattle will be in the Superbowl before the Bears. He is probably right. Besides the Bear’s can do better in the draft.
