  Bears | Adewale Ogunleye critical of Jay Cutler     Sat Sep 15, 12:38 PM

Retired NFL DE Adewale Ogunleye, a former teammate of Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, was critical of the way Cutler criticized OT J'Marcus Webb during Week 2. 'If you are not doing your job, yeah, someone should be allowed to get in your face,' Ogunleye said. 'But if you live in a glass house, you can't throw any stones. So the way I am looking at the game, no one is yelling at Jay when he is throwing the ball three (four) times to their defenders. And you've got to have some sense of accountability. At the end of the day, you start losing the respect of the offensive line when publicly you're bumping people and yelling at them in their face. I don't think it is the right thing to do.'

  Bears | Marinelli speaks on defensive line    Wed Jul 15, 08:14 PM

Larry Mayer, of ChicagoBears.com, talked to new defensive line coach Rod Marinelli recently about his players. Marinelli on DT Tommie Harris: "He's one of the key spokes in the whole defense". Highlights include Marinelli on DE Adewale Ogunleye: "a veteran who's in tremendous shape." Marinelli on DT Marcus Harrison: "His potential is out of this world. He is a big, athletic man who moves well. He wants to be really good and he works hard." Marinelli also commented on DT Dusty Dvoracek, DL Israel Idonije, and DT Jarron Gilbert.

Footballguys view: The Bears defensive line was pretty quiet last year from a fantasy perspective, but that could all change with the addition of Marinelli, who was a terrific defensive coach during his time at Tampa Bay. We would be more inclined to take a chance on Harris in DT required leagues than we were before the Bears hired Marinelli.

  Bears | Smith called Marinelli best free agent pickup    Wed Jul 8, 10:04 AM

John Crist, of Bear Report, reports that Chicago head coach called new defensive line coach and former Detroit head coach Rod Marinelli the team's best pickup in free agency.

Footballguys view: The addition of Marinelli should only help Adewale Ogunleye stay among the top 10 or 15 fantasy defensive ends for IDP leagues. The Bears should do much better than their meager total of 28 sacks last year.

  Bears | Ogunleye entering contract year    Wed May 20, 12:31 PM

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Chicago Bears DE Adewale Ogunleye is entering the final year of his contract. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has let it be known that Ogunleye is open to talking about an extension.

Footballguys view: The Bears are usually cautious with players on the wrong side of 30 years of age, and Ogunleye will turn 33 before the 2010 season. However, an extension could be entertained during the season.

  Bears | Ogunleye, Idonije unlikely to land new deals this season    Mon May 18, 08:40 AM

Vaughn McClure, of the Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo sounded somewhat apprehensive when asked about the possibility of rewarding DL Adewale Ogunleye and DL Israel Idonije with new contracts this season. Both players are in contract years. 'We did quite a bit last year if memory serves me right,' Angelo said. 'I think we were unprecedented in terms of all the people we did extensions with so, in part, that made fewer players come up. But those that do well, we'll definitely do what we've always done in the past. I've always said this, 'They take care of their business and business takes care of itself.''

Footballguys view: Ogunleye's agent Drew Rosenhaus hasn't twittered about a new deal - yet. The Bears went on a spending spree last season, so they may be inclined to be a little more thrifty this year.
