We almost landed Jakeem Grant...


Recommended Posts

Bears acquired WR Jakeem Grant from the Dolphins in exchange for a 2023 sixth-round draft pick. 

The diminutive kick returner and occasional wideout for Miami has two catches for -7 yards through the season's first month. The Dolphins reportedly tried to trade Grant to the Panthers this offseason before contract terms sunk the deal. Grant won't be fantasy relevant unless Chicago deals with a spate of wideout injuries this year. The Bears trading for Grant could mean Tarik Cohen (ACL) isn't close to returning.  Look for Jaylen Waddle to take over as Miami's kick returner.

He’s got traded because Chicago needs a returner with DG out at RB. They’ve been using rookie Herbert but he’ll have a bigger role in the offense as the #2 RB now. Nobody is going to use this kid at WR because he has bricks for hands.

    • Not quite accurate because you're mostly looking just at the guys who followed him directly from Baylor. Sean Ryan was on staff alongside Rhule when he was with the Giants. So was Al Holcomb, and he was already here so it was an easy hire. Kevin Gilbride was on staff with Rhule at Temple rather than Baylor. His dad also coached with Rhule on the Giants staff. Terrance Knighton didn't coach with Rhule, but he played for him at Temple. Rhule was actually his position coach for a season. Jason Simmons doesn't have a direct connection with Rhule but he does with Phil Snow. Simmons played for Snow at Arizona State. Mind you, there actually could have been more but some of his guys chose not to follow him. A few others weren't with him long enough or didn't have enough experience to be qualified. Those were the positions that ended up with other people. But even one of those, DL Coach Mike Phair, ended up gone a year later in favor of Rhule's Baylor DL Coach Frank Okam. As to NFL experience, the guys who do have it haven't risen above the level of position coaches.  None of them has been a pro level coordinator that I know of, and definitely no head coaches. Add to this that Rhule had been able to get a couple of guys added in front office and administrative roles. Pat Stewart is the highest. Evan Cooper, Sean Padden and EJ Barthel were the others but Padden and Barthel have departed since (Padden under some questionable circumstances). All in all, there are only about five or six guys on the entire staff that aren't connected to Rhule in some way, most of them on offense. And those are the guys I won't be surprised to become scapegoats for our offensive struggles.
    • Both things can be true. Rivera was wrong for cutting heineke and rivera was right for choosing to stay the course and develop heineke. He could have pulled a matt rhule, bring in qbs and wasting time.
