    I'm wondering if the Bears will try to resign Ogunleye now.

    Would not be surprised at all if this was heart related, he has always had that "artificial" look. Another thing that will come into question is these physical checks made when players join teams, Bears must have really cut some corners because these things shouldn't be missed.

    R.I.P Gaines. Too damn young.

    How about we wait for the autopsy before speculating on the cause of death guys?
