Well of course. But just because he's known, doesn't mean there isn't a lot of rookies out there that can do the job too. But I'm glad they aren't pigeon-holing themselves into having to draft a need at 20.
While he's serviceable, nothing to write home about. Depth if nothing else. Bears need youth here.
They do, they also need competent depth. This qualifies as that. Any depth signing that allows them to ignore need and go after the best player in the draft is good in my eyes. I can live with a year of Hayden at nickel.
