The Chicago Bears have finally jumped into the Free Agent market, spending some of their $50 million in cap space on the former Denver Bronco inside linebacker Danny Trevathan, who should be an immediate starter for what has been a disappointing Bears defense in recent years.   Trevathan, who lead the Super Bowl Champion Broncos in tackles during the regular season, is a much needed addition for the Bears, who have been very thin at linebacker since Brian Urlacher and then Lance Briggs retired.   At just 25 years old, and with only really 2 seasons of wear and tear on his body, the Chicago Bears will be hoping that Trevathan, who was a key part of that spectacular Broncos defense, will be able to fill the space in the middle of their defense where they have been so desperate. Chicago’s linebackers over the last few seasons include the failed pass rusher & first round pick Shea McClellin, the undrafted Christian Jones and the already traded Jonathan Bostic. Whatever one might think of Trevathan he is certainly an upgrade on those failures.   More so than any other team, the Chicago Bears have traditionally made their bones on defense, particularly at Middle Linebacker where the likes of Mike Singletary, Dick Butkus and Brian Urlacher have roamed as “The Monsters Of The Midway” for generations. The hope for fans and the front office alike has to be that Trevathan can begin to recapture that image and restore the Bears defense to the fearsome unit it used to be.
