Good Luck to him, but like just about all Linemen we let walk; his performance will lack

1 year deal? Looks like there was virtually no interest in his services. I have a feeling we'll be better off with Lelito.

This front office knows a thing or two. I'll bet you're right.

Agree. And this:

"As explained by Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, de la Puente is expected to back up Roberto Garza in Chicago"

Only to back up? Wow. He wasn't that bad....and Garza's not that good.

Lelito isn't the answer. Draft a center.

Re: Bears sign Brian De La Puente

Being a starting C is more than just blocking. He was a serviceable blocker, looked lost at times in the screen, and Drew was calling the line.


It's not just a Saints opinion. He is headed to his sixth team and isn't expected to start.

The o-line seems to puzzle some fans, they think DLP is a keeper and Grubs is horrible.
