Didn't we pickup Beason in the draft that had us taking him?

Yep. I remember that year well. The fans (being as short sighted as they usually are) thought we were either gonna get a safety (this was the year that Minter retired) or a TE. We traded down, still had the opportunity to get Olsen I believe but got Beason instead. Funny how things work out. Maybe we can just pretend that Olsen dropped to the 3rd round :P

Wasn't expecting to get traded
Loved Chicago and planned on being there for a long time
Had great relationships there, but with the system they ran, sometimes things just don't fit. No ones fault, no hard feelings, just didn't necessarily fit.
Couldn't be happier about the team he got traded to.
Likes the young team. Likes Chud.
Hears charlotte is a nice place to raise a family.
Plans on playing for us for a long time.
Can't wait to get to camp.
Has week 4 against Chicago circled on his calendar already.

Did the best I could to sum it up for you.

Dude sounds like a keeper for sure.

Monsta, you are my hero

Someone is gonna have a chip on his shoulder.

In his mind he was gonna be a lifetime Bear, went out and did things that Martz didn't think he could do, only to get traded to the Panthers.

Now I didn't watch enough Bears football to speak on that, but I can tell from that interview he will be out to prove something and soon.
