Maybe Jerry Angelo doesn’t know the difference between tight ends and wide receivers. But yesterday, the Bears signed tight end Michael Gaines to a one-year deal. You can read about the move in this story by ESPN.
That makes five tight ends on the roster. And still no wide receiver who’s worth much.
According to the ESPN story, Gaines is a better blocker than a receiver. That sets him apart from Greg Olsen and Desmond Clark, the Bears’ two other primary tight ends, both of whom are strong receivers but a little weak in the blocking department.
My guess is that Gaines will stay on the roster, along with Olsen and Clark, of course.
Now, maybe, the Bears will address their wide receiver problems. I sure hope so. If they don’t, new quarterback Jay Cutler might have a long season.
