Bears not done yet in free agency

The Chicago Bears have already been one of the early wave-makers in free agency this offseason, but according to general manager Phil Emery the team isn’t finished yet.

He told the team web site that the Bears still have some work to do when it comes to shaping the roster.

“We’ve got some holes to fill,” general manager Phil Emery said Wednesday. “We’ve got a lot of work to do on our roster. I want our fans to know that that work is not going to stop. We just consider these signings as a step, a step in the right direction. We feel very good about the players we signed, but we’ve got a lot of work to do.”

Emery said he expects to look toward the draft for another backup quarterback, but other roster spots may be filled with some veterans who are still looking for their next opportunity as free agency progresses.

So far this offseason, the Bears have re-signed 13 of their own players along with defensive end Lamarr Houston, safety Ryan Mundy, linebacker Jordan Senn and safety M.D. Jennings.
