Amobi Okoye Addition: B+
The Chicago Bears needed to fill the Tommie Harris void at defensive tackle and seemed to have done so in signing Amobi Okoye.
Okoye will battle for a starting spot with Anthony Adams and could be a productive player after a change of scenery.
Okoye was the 10th overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft and has worn out his time in Houston as they transition to a 3-4 defense.
Okoye is only 24 years old and still has a ton of potential in him.
The Bears defensive system could be the perfect fit for him and turn his career around, I like this addition a lot.
Chris Spencer Addition: B-
The Bears added Chris Spencer to their roster and will most likely start him at center when the season starts.
Spencer is a decent player who may help their offensive line overall but isn't going to be enough to fix it fully.
The Bears needed to address the O-line with a major free agent that could have upgraded the unit from awful to solid.
Spencer isn't going to be enough and while it is a minor upgrade it won't help to much.
Vernon Gholston Addition: B+
Vernon Gholston has pretty much been proclaimed a bust after his first four seasons in the NFL didn't go well.
Gholston was drafted by the New York Jets and was forced to play out of position to fit their defense.
The Bears added Gholston for a cheap price and are not risking anything in bringing him to camp.
He will be able to play his natural position of defense end in Chicago and maybe getting out of New York was all he needed.
Maybe it is wishful thinking but I think Gholston will produce for the Bears and produce at a high level, I like the signing and think it will help the Bears in the long run.
