The Chicago Bears are turning to Santonio Holmes to try to fill their No. 3 receiver role.

The former New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers pass-catcher agreed to terms with the Bears, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Saturday.

Chicago has been searching for a third-wheel to add to the Brandon Marshall-Alshon Jeffery duo ever since Marquess Wilson suffered a fractured clavicle earlier this month.

Chicago toyed with kick returner Eric Weems in that spot during Thursday's 20-19 preseason win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Weems, however, quickly proved he was not the answer.

Holmes, the former Super Bowl MVP, was a shell of himself in 2013 due to a foot injury that was worse than it originally appeared. The receiver's work ethic was also questioned multiple times in New York over the last several years.

The Bears worked out Holmes earlier this month but then chose to sign little-known Greg Herd instead. Now that they see what they have at No. 3 receiver, the team decided Homes was worth the risk.

If he is mentally and physically healthy, Holmes can be a dynamic add to an already potent offense and should win the No. 3 job over Weems and Josh Morgan. That is one big "if," however.

The latest "Around the League Podcast" talks quarterback battles and debates the gang's preseason power rankings.

I wonder if he will do his little Airplane run after he scores 3 TDs against our secondary.

Probably? I doubt it right along with you, then again Jeffery shouldn't even be a bear.

I just don't understand what the Jets are doing. I predicted them to go 2-14 prior to this season, so they surpassed expectations.

Holmes vs. Johnny Patrick or Brandon Dixon most likely. Hilariously, that's probably an even fight at this point.

Holmes has settled to his place in the NFL.  He'll perform just fine as a 3rd option.  Plus, being on the shelf may work as a mental tune-up and reality check.

a healthy, motivated, in -shape holmes is a hand full.  only milliner could stay with him on this roster

 

the question, of course, is how healthy, motivated and in-shape he is

So you're saying that we need our best CB (currently injured) to cover the Bears third (or possibly fourth?) best receiver?

 

This bodes well for our pass defense.

IF

 

he is healthy, motivated and in-shape.  Even if he is he will be the 4th option in that offense, so it is only a matter of time before he chirps and gets benched in my mind.

 

IF

 

his foot slows him down, he is coasting, and out of shape, he won't catch sh*t on anybody

I'm more confused about why they think they actually need 4 receivers that are capable of producing. If they had been paying any attention to the modern day genius that is John Idzik, they would know that you really only need 1 solid receiver and a reliable slot guy to run a passing offense. That's enough to put major points on the board. Anything beyond that is just an embarrassment of riches.
