  Bears | Gaines, K. Davis not locks to make roster    Thu Jul 23, 03:26 PM

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports neither Chicago Bears TE Michael Gaines nor TE Kellen Davis is a lock to make the team's opening day roster.

Footballguys view: Davis is a great physical talent, and he showed potential as a DE at Michigan State. Maybe the Bears could try him on defense before they cut him if he hasn't improved enough at TE.

  Bears | Gaines could be used as emergency FB    Thu Jul 9, 01:16 PM

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Chicago Bears TE Michael Gaines could be used as an emergency fullback during a game if FB Jason McKie suffered an injury.

Footballguys view: The Bears are expected to only keep one fullback on the roster, so Gaines will give them the versatility they need in case of an injury to Jason McKie.

  Bears | Gaines contract update    Tue May 12, 10:26 AM

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Chicago Bears TE Michael Gaines' contract is for one year and can reach $1.25 million.

Footballguys view: As we expected, Gaines gets a one-year deal to be the 3rd string TE and primarily a blocker for the Bears in 2009.

  Bears | Gaines could see time at fullback    Tue May 12, 10:25 AM

Vaughn McClure, of the Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears TE Michael Gaines could see time as a blocking fullback as well, according to general manager Jerry Angelo. 'We're looking for a blocker, and Michael fits the bill,' Angelo said. 'He's been released several times, but he does have a role. He is a good blocker, and we are a running football team.'

Footballguys view: Gaines isn't in line to catch many passes for the Bears this year unless Greg Olsen or Desmond Clark miss time due to injury. Chicago will use Michael Gaines primarily as a blocker, apparently from a number of different positions.

  Bears | Gaines agrees to terms    Mon May 11, 06:04 PM

Larry Mayer, of ChicagoBears.com, reports the Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent TE Michael Gaines (Lions) on a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Gaines will be asked to block for the Bears as they already have 2 talented pass catching options at the TE position - Greg Olsen and Desmond Clark. If Olsen or Clark were to get hurt Gaines would move into the #2 spot, but as of right now he has little fantasy value.
