With the draft closing in, the Bears need help on defense, and more so at the linebacker spot. With that, it sounds like the pick might be none other than Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o.
The Bears along with the Vikings are two teams that have their eyes on Te’o.
Stacey Dales said on NFL Network on Thursday that she believes the Bears will take Te’o if he’s available. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport writes that matches what he’s been hearing.
The Bears signed D.J. Williams in free agency, but they are still looking for a long-term solution at middle linebacker to replace Brian Urlacher.
