The Chicago Bears have added yet another kicker, acquiring Eddy Pineiro from the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland received a 2021 seventh-round pick, according to a report. If Pineiro isn't on Chicago's active roster for five games, the Raiders won't get the pick.

Pineiro joins Chris Blewitt and Elliott Fry as the third kicker on Chicago's roster. They released Redford Jones and John Baron on Sunday at the conclusion of their rookie minicamp.

2019 NFL Mock Draft, Final Version

Apr 25, 2019 8:25 AM

The 2019 NFL Draft is finally here! Months of speculation and guesswork gets proven right or wrong over the next three days.

Here is my final guess at where the players go in the draft. This is my prediction of what NFL teams will do and does not necessarily reflect the decisions I would make in the same situations. Because more of these will likely be wrong that right, I'll keep the commentary to a brief blurb. 

1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma. Despite the late speculation to the contrary, the rookie coach gets his preferred QB. Best guess on Josh Rosen's fate: traded to Washington for two second-round picks.

2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State. A long-rumored match and it makes sense, as the 49ers need an EDGE who can create havoc and also snuff the run on the way to the QB. That's Bosa.

3. New York Jets: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama. It's easy to see new Jets DC Gregg Williams banging the table for the best interior rusher in this draft, a perfect fit to set up his blitz-happy D.

Possible trade: Jets trade out, Bengals trade up to snag a QB.

4. Oakland Raiders: Ed Oliver, DL, Houston. Oliver might be the best player in this entire draft, though there is risk. It's easy to see both Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden loving his potential based on what they've said and done in their respective pasts. I view this spot as Kyler Murray's draft floor, be it the Raiders taking him or a team (Miami?) trading up to get him.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Devin White, LB, LSU. This has been the hot match since at least the combine and I've not been presented with any compelling reason to swim against the current.

6. New York Giants: Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State. Sweat has two double-digit sack seasons in the SEC and the highest athletic upside of any defensive player in this draft. Perfect blend of proven performance and high ceiling that will get GM Dave Gettleman to bite. I don't believe the Giants go QB here but if they do it's Daniel Jones.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida. Another team/player match that has been hotly rumored for months. There are whispers of T.J. Hockenson and Daniel Jones here. One trade scenario that makes sense: the Bengals moving up here from No. 11 to take Dwayne Haskins and the Jaguars landing Taylor at 11.

8. Detroit Lions: Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky. Best-case scenario for the Lions, who desperately want to add more pass-rushing oomph to an underrated defense. Plan B is Jonah Williams. Plan C is T.J. Hockenson.

Possible trade: Washington moves up from 15 to 8 and takes Daniel Jones. Lions fall back and select Clelin Ferrell.

9. Buffalo Bills: T.J. Hockenson, TE, Iowa. Dual-threat TE to pair with a dual-threat QB. I can see Andre Dillard or Jonah Williams here too.

10. Denver Broncos: Devin Bush, LB, Michigan. The rangy, hard-hitting Bush is a perfect fit for Vic Fangio's defensive vision. I can definitely envision a QB here too. Drew Lock was linked to this pick for a long time, I have to think that's still within the realm of possibility.

It's at this point where I realize I don't have Daniel Jones slotted in the top 10. I do believe he's going in the top 10 somewhere, but in this scenario, I just couldn't place him. Que tonteria.

11. Cincinnati Bengals: Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State. It certainly could be Dwayne Haskins here, but a couple of sources I respect indicate the team really likes Dillard. Maybe they trade up later to get the potential successor to Andy Dalton. Dillard will help either guy with his elite-level pass protection.

12. Green Bay Packers: Jonah Williams, OL, Alabama. A safe pick with positional versatility and a strong history of playing well against top competition, Williams makes sense for the rebuilding-on-the-fly Packers.

13. Miami Dolphins: Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State. Probably the best-case outcome for Miami, which sorely needs a long-term solution at QB and in this case doesn't need to move up to land one. Haskins slotting this draft season has been an exercise in futility.

14. Atlanta Falcons: Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan. Too much potential in Gary for him to fall too far, and he offers the Falcons an injection of athleticism on the defensive front.

Possible trade: If Ed Oliver starts to drop, the Falcons get aggressive and move up as far as 7 or 8 to snag him.

15. Washington: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke. Rather than try to forecast the trade up to land Jones, I'll just marry the player and team here in the original Washington slot. I expect Jones to come off higher and the rumors of the Skins looking to move up -- way up -- to get him have been present for some time.

16. Carolina Panthers: Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson. Rock-solid productive pass rusher and he's a local for the Panthers, making it a great fit for a position where they desperately need youthful help. This is also the range where Oakland or Seattle could move with their extra firsts.

17. New York Giants: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri. During Senior Bowl week the Giants media could not get enough of Lock, which tells me they've either been tipped the Giants had a real interest or are easily drawn to talented but flawed QB prospects. Tough to ignore Cody Ford or Andre Dillard here too.

18. Minnesota Vikings: Garrett Bradbury, C/OG, North Carolina State. I suspect this is a popular pick, matching the best center with the team that needs center more than any other.

19. Tennessee Titans: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson. Those close to coach Mike Vrabel have strongly hinted he's a huge fan of the huge man on the DL. He and Jurrell Casey together make for a very difficult day for opposing offenses.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Rock Ya-Sin, CB, Temple. It might not happen at 20, but the Steelers interest in Ya-Sin appears legit. This is Devin Bush's absolute floor. Keep an eye on Oakland moving up here.

21. Seattle Seahawks: Brian Burns, EDGE, Florida State. After the Frank Clark trade, it's hard to see the Seahawks not aggressively targeting a pass rusher. Burns brings sizzle and speed off the edge despite questions about his size and run defense. They could trade back and still get him, and a team looking to snag a top corner or safety (Chargers, Rams?) might indulge them.

22. Baltimore Ravens: D.K. Metcalf, WR, Ole Miss. Tough choice here as I think they like both Erik McCoy and Cody Ford a lot, but the chance to get a lottery ticket in Metcalf at a position of need will woo new GM Eric DeCosta. At least one member of their scouting staff ranks the athletic freak WR considerably higher than this slot.

23. Houston Texans: Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma. Expect the Texans to aggressively address the league's worst offensive line. Ford can play tackle or guard and Houston desperately needs help at both. They could draft as many as three linemen (and multiple CBs) this weekend.

24. Oakland Raiders: Noah Fant, TE, Iowa. More of a supersized WR, Fant would nicely replace Jared Cook. It's a bigger need than gets widely publicized, and Fant has potential to be a great NFL receiver.

25. Philadelphia Eagles: Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State. Simmons would likely have been a top-10 pick if he didn't tear his ACL in December. The Eagles have enough depth they can afford to take a redshirt guy with big upside. I can see Marquise Brown here too.

26. Indianapolis Colts: Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame. Tillery posted several game tapes where he looks worthy of being drafted much higher than this. He's a nice fit and value for the monster of a youthful Colts defense GM Chris Ballard is building.

27. Oakland Raiders: Greedy Williams, CB, LSU. It came down to a playmaking corner or running back, and both after a trade; I expect the Raiders to make this pick very early on Friday instead of at No. 27. Williams brings size and ball skills to a secondary lacking both. New England moving up for a TE or Cleveland aggressively jumping in for a CB both make sense as trades.

28. Los Angeles Chargers: Dalton Risner, OL, Kansas State. Talented, versatile (he can play RT, either G spot or C) and physical, Risner is a great fit for what the Chargers want up front.

29. Seattle Seahawks: Byron Murphy, CB, Washington. Arguably the best CB in this draft (he's my top CB), Murphy helps restock a secondary in transition without having to relocate far from college.

30. Green Bay Packers: Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma. A pick that would firmly distinguish GM Brian Gutekunst as a definitive new leader, Brown is a high-risk/reward prospect. No other WR can come close to his dynamic skills, but at 166 pounds and coming off a potentially career-altering foot injury, it's a leap of faith. I suspect Aaron Rodgers would approve.

31. Los Angeles Rams: Darnell Savage, S, Maryland. He can play safety, he can play cornerback, he can play both in the same series without needing to sub out. Savage is a good fit for a team that figures to face a lot of pass attempts.

32. New England Patriots: Dawson Knox, TE, Ole Miss. A surprise pick for some, but little birdies have been chirping about Knox since the Combine. Just don't say he's replacing Gronk; Knox is a different kind of TE. I can definitely see a trade down from here to snag Knox a few picks later too. Wild card would be a QB.

Second round

The picks from here on out are much more about matching player to slot than team to player.

33. Cardinals:  Erik McCoy, OG/OC, Texas A&M

34. Colts: Nasir Adderly, S, Delaware

35. Raiders: Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama

36. 49ers: N’Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State

37. Giants: A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss

38. Jaguars: Will Grier, QB, West Virginia

39. Buccaneers: Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia

40. Bills: Hakeem Butler, WR, Iowa State

41. Broncos: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

42. Bengals: D’Andre Walker, EDGE, Georgia

43. Lions: Chris Lindstrom, OG/OC, Boston College

44. Packers: Irv Smith Jr., TE, Alabama

45. Falcons: David Long, CB, Michigan

46. Washington: Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State 

47. Panthers: Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama State

48. Dolphins: Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss

49. Browns: Justin Layne, CB, Michigan State

50. Vikings: Christian Miller, EDGE, Alabama

51. Titans: Blake Cashman, LB, Minnesota

52. Steelers: Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina

53. Eagles: Chase Winovich, EDGE, Michigan

54. Texans: Amani Oruwariye, CB, Penn State

55. Texans: Elgton Jenkins, OG/OC, Mississippi State

56. Patriots: J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford

57. Eagles: Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio State

58. Cowboys: Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia

59. Colts: Kelvin Harmon, WR, North Carolina State

60. Chargers: Taylor Rapp, S, Washington

61. Chiefs: Julian Love, CB, Notre Dame

62. Saints: Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri

63. Chiefs: Amani Hooker, S, Iowa

64. Patriots: Charles Omenihu, DL, Texas

Tarik Cohen Was Hurt By Jordan Howard Trade

Apr 23, 2019 8:22 AM

The Chicago Bears traded Jordan Howard to the Philadelphia Eagles, which could lead to an expanded role for Tarik Cohen.

As he enters his third NFL season, Cohen admitted that losing Howard hurt him.

"I was really following after him as soon as I came to the Bears because I was one year behind him, so he could tell me everything to do because he had already been through it," Cohen said. "Losing him, it hurt me a little bit. I'm not going to lie. It hurt me, because that's like my brother."

Chicago signed Mike Davis to join Cohen in the backfield.

Apr 17, 2019 8:12 AM

Zach Miller has announced his retirement from football.

The Chicago Bears tight end made the decision more than a year and a half after suffering a catastrophic injury in Week 8 of the 2017 regular season that nearly cost him his left leg.

Miller, 34, was one of Chicago's most consistent offensive performers from 2015-17, catching 101 passes for 1,161 yards and 11 touchdowns over parts of those three seasons.

Jack Del Rio Disagreed With Raiders On Trading Khalil Mack

Apr 8, 2019 5:06 PM

Jack Del Rio spoke about the Oakland Raiders' decision to trade Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears before the start of the 2018 season.

Del Rio coached Mack from 2015 until 2017.

“I think Khalil Mack is a future Hall of Fame player,” Del Rio said Monday on NFL Network. “To me, when you have that talented of a player, you keep those guys. They chose to. . . .They didn’t think they could pay him, didn’t think they’d get a deal done, so they got value and draft picks. They certainly got good value, I think, from what they were able to get from the Bears. Now, it’s incumbent on Mike Mayock to turn that draft capital into something really good that can play and get after the quarterback. So we’ll find out. The draft is coming up. We’re going to find out if they can parlay those picks into something special. They clearly decided not to pay one of the great human beings and great football players that I’ve ever coached.”

Bears-Packers To Kick Off NFL's 100th Season

Mar 26, 2019 7:29 AM

The NFL will begin the 2019 season with the Chicago Bears hosting the Green Bay Packers on the first Thursday of Week 1.

The NFL has typically led with the Super Bowl champion at home, but will begin its 100th season with a classic rivalry.

"As an organization, we are thrilled to be kicking off the 100th season of football in the NFL," Bears chairman George H. McCaskey said in a statement. "As a charter franchise, we cannot think of a better way to begin our centennial season than by hosting our longtime rival in prime time at Soldier Field."

The New England Patriots will play on Sunday Night Football at home with the Cleveland Browns a possible opponent.

Nobel Prize Winner Explains Raiders' Logic Of Khalil Mack Trade

Mar 25, 2019 10:12 AM

The Oakland Raiders received the Best Transaction award by MIT for the Khalil Mack, which was explained by Richard Thaler.

Thaler won the 2017 Nobel Prize for Economics and has consulted with an NFL team about the value of draft choices and how to build a team.

Oakland received two first round picks, a third round pick and a fifth round pick for Mack and a second round pick.

“Here’s the argument,” Thaler said. “The Raiders are down, and they will be getting these [four] picks to help them rebuild their team. I believe the only way to win in football is to have players who play better than their salaries. Let’s stipulate that Mack is getting top-of-market value for his services, so it will be hard for him to play better than his salary. Let’s also stipulate Mack is worth the money. But is Mack worth all that money plus four good draft choices?

“Now Jon Gruden can build through these multiple high picks on rookie contracts instead of just having one great player being paid at a market rate. In fact, if Gruden were talking to me, I’d tell him to trade the number four pick for multiple picks. I’d trade down every year. If I had a pick in the top 10, and I wasn’t drafting a quarterback, I’d want to trade down every year. There is value in multiple high picks versus one pick in the top 10.”

Thaler believes the draft-trade value chart devised by Jimmy Johnson overvalues high picks.

“Teams still use that stupid chart,” he said. “That chart overvalues high picks. It’s a joke. High picks, to me, are over-valued stocks. Smart teams should have a portfolio manager, to basically analyze every draft decision or trade.” 

Thaler also believes NFL teams need to expand their analytics departments.

“Football,” Thaler said, “is way behind baseball and basketball. [Houston Rockets GM] Daryl Morey has a staff of I think 15 full-time analytics guys. Why wouldn’t you want to give yourself every edge when you’re building a team?”
