Jimmy Clausen is reunited with Armanti Edwards in Chicago.  The Bears already have a pretty well stocked cupboard for QBs, but you can never have too many.   If the Bears are desparate, I’m sure Brian St. Pierre is bored these days or maybe Keary Colbert?  We host Chicago on October 5th…..should be very interesting.

"Joe Person from The Herald Online :"

Colin Kaepernick became a lot wealthier on Wednesday afternoon, but Cam Newton‘s contract talks won’t necessarily follow Kap’s blueprint.  Cam was the number one overall pick in 2011 and is looking to remain in the Queen City for awhile.  He definitely needs to get his pay day, but some analysts think there are other quarterback’s recent contracts that demonstrate better parameters.

Tre Boston’s career is not starting the way he had hoped, but the hernia surgery he had recently will sideline the rookie out of North Carolina until July.

Not a huge setback for the secondary, but Boston needs to improve his game and smooth out his rough edges in order to be considered for any decent amount of playing time.  These kind of injuries can linger if they aren’t addressed, so it’s good that he’s getting it out of the way now.

Smitty says that 2014 would have been his final year in Carolina, and he was content hanging them up after this coming season.  In true Steve Smith fashion, a new chip was added to his shoulder, and he found a fire in him to continue on.  How much longer?  Check out what Smith had to say in a recent interview.

NFC South rivals for years, Thomas DeCoud and Roman Harper are getting their feet firmly set on the ground in Charlotte.  Both have Pro Bowls under their belts and knowledge of previous employers, so how is the adjustment going thus far?  We all wanted Harper’s head on a stake after what he did to Smitty, but how many cheers will we see this year when Harper punishes Roddy White or Vincent Jackson?

Chase Blackburn is alerting the officials that there are only 93 more days left until the Panthers invade Tampa.  They appear to be in agreement.
