Bears Release Starting LT Charles Leno

Yes to this, I hope Christiansen starts but Leno would be good insurance policy 

Exactly.  Way too much of a risk to go into the season without another option.

I've read though that Leno's college coach is now with the Colts who also need a LT and they are the favorites to sign him... one can hope though

Please happen. Regardless of how good Christensen looks as a prospect we can't rely on a 3rd round rookie to start at LT. If Christensen turns out to be that good day 1 then great but I would rather have insurance so that we're not married to either him or Scott/Little.

It'll come down to money and where he thinks is best for him.

True... which is why we are going to need to be aggressive with the money (within reason) to convince him to come here

Adding Leno with the other draft additions we've made would give us a legitimate O Line and would leave Darnold's development and performance the only real question mark (on paper) for a tremendously improved roster

Not sure it will be good for us.  He was making 9+ per season, and the dude is 29.  That generally isn't the type of player we've been signing in the Rhule era.

Leno was making anything near what most LTs are making. He’s 29 and will be 30 in October. But we did signed guys like Bouye, Melvin, Perryman and Daquan who are close to the same age.
