Alex Brown acknowledged the obvious on his Twitter page Wednesday morning, saying goodbye to the only organization he’s ever played for.
“I am extremely grateful for my time as a Chicago
Bear and I wish the Bears the best,” Brown wrote. “I am glad that they gave me an
opportunity to realize a dream I had had a child. I appreciate the fans
but as we all know this is the nature of the business. Bear down!“
Chicago wants to trade Brown, but his $5 million salary makes it difficult. They are expected to release him if they can’t find a taker.
Silva noted in today’s one-liners that the nine-year veteran isn’t attending the voluntary conditioning program, as to be expected. Brown reportedly approached the Bears for a contract extension before they put him on the market.
Now that the rest of the league knows Brown is a goner, the Bears will have trouble getting much for him, if anything.
