The Bears Beat (01.23.12): Bears still mulling GM options, but sources say Phil Emery close to deal

January 23rd, 2012 - 5:57 pm

There are conflicting reports regarding what the Bears intend to do to fill their general manager position. No decision has been made or announced yet despite some reports suggesting that Chiefs director of college scouting and former Bears scout Phil Emery is the leading candidate and could be hired soon. Also, Jay Cutler is set to be a father as his fiancé Kristin Cavallari is pregnant and Julius Peppers has been added to the Pro Bowl replacing Jason Pierre-Paul, who will be participating in the Super Bowl with the Giants.
