Great acquisition for the Bears. Kelvin is rock solid and, of course, the Saints whiffed on another one!

Boo! Boo! The "Saints hate LSU players" narrative is played out.

Journeymen make $$$ too! Loved me some K.Shep! They say he wasn't a backup. Maybe technically, but he was basically part of the starting rotation. And a true leader in the locker room.

Met his folks at Auburn in 2010. Really good family. He was a great Tiger player, my best to him!

I will always remember this guy running away from Tebow, as if he really didn't want any part of tackling him.
