That FA loss seems less impactful 

Yep...he was a lot older coming into us so he already had a limited shelf life. I will say if he came to us like he originally did I think he would make an excellent WILB. He was a great cover backer....just took him too long to develop. We definitely got his best years out of him.

The one Grigson let get away and we still haven't been able to find his replacement.

Letting him go was best for both parties. He did not fit into the scheme the Colts were playing at defense at the time and was getting beat pretty good most of the time.

Now hindsight says it was a good thing he was let go from the Colts.

Disagree.

He was good for us

He did not play all that well for us.  We played a Tampa 2 defense and he was better at man to man. That is why he played a lot better for the Bears than for us. It was feast or famine with him when he was here.

Besides, we sure didn't need his drug problem thrown on us.

Freeman was suspended once in '16 for four games for PEDs...

 

And again in '17 for PEDs, this time for 10 games.

 

And even if he wanted to continue his career, he was looking at a TWO YEAR SUSPENSION for PEDs.

 

Freeman was fine for us.   But be glad for him that he got a bigger contract from the Bears than we would've given him.   Had we kept him we not have gotten the bang WE wanted for the bucks HE wanted.

 

Our LB unit will be much better this year.
