    Biggs: Rumor mill on promotion of Bears area scouts

Guess is team has announcements whatever moves are soon. Repeat these are rumors not official. Did report team will hire scout Dwayne Joseph.
    i have to say both of these make some sense. the Bears have gotten some good mileage out of Ballard's area and out of Barrett's region too, recently. IIRC, both were here the last time Emery was with the Bears.
    Your Chicago Bears defense is brought to you by the nation of France who can't stop anyone either.

    I like these moves as well. You have to reward your own and create career paths for those entering the organization. Emery really seems to understand the organizational aspect of making moves like this and the message it sends to others.
    The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
