ESPN is reporting that, after being released last month, former Rams linebacker, Pisa Tinoisamoa, has signed a one year deal with the Chicago Bears.  Tinoisamoa, in this reporter's opinion, is one of the the few defensive players on the Rams that showed any real effort or hustle last year, and, accordingly, he led the team in tackles.

 In what will either be seen as a brilliant strategic move or, more likely, a huge mistake, the Rams' new management dumped Tinoisamoa last week, to free up some cash to look for players that are bigger than he was. It is a costly gamble, to be sure, and one that, perhaps, the Bears have the foresight to greatly benefit from.

This season, it will be very interesting to see how this all turns out.
