Former Bear Brandon Marshall is on the move again, but he'll get to stay in the same stadium.
The wide receiver agreed to terms with the New York Giants on a two-year deal worth $12 million. While the deal has been reported by multiple outlets, Marshall can't sign until 3 p.m. Thursday when free agency officially opens.
The Jets released Marshall earlier this offseason. Marshall, who will be 33 when the 2017 season starts, spent two years with the Jets totaling 17 touchdowns and 2,290 yards on 168 receptions.
Marshall was with the Bears from 2012-2014 and had 31 touchdowns in those three years.
Former Bears tight end Greg Olsen will reportedly join Fox Sports’s broadcast booth, whenever he calls it quits on his playing career.
The New York Post reports that Olsen and Fox agreed to a contract that would make him Kevin Burkhardt’s partner as the No. 2 analyst for the network, behind Troy Aikman.

Olsen signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks this year. If he chooses to play beyond 2020, the New York Post says that Fox will wait for him.
Olsen got rave reviews when he called the Cardinals-Giants game last season. He was also popular calling XFL games with Burkhardt.
The only question now, is how much does Olsen have left in the tank before he heads to the booth?

You may know Brian Urlacher for a number of different things. Bears legend, billboard icon, that guy whose jersey the obnoxiously loud dude you met at a party was wearing, etc. He contains multitudes.
But sometime in the near future, apparently, you may know Brian Urlacher as part-owner of the New York Mets:
Urlacher has joined a group with Travis Kelce, DeMarco Murray, Joe Thomas, Bradley Beal, and Mason Plumlee, all of whom "are part of a group of investors who have joined power couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez in a bid to buy the New York Mets." Urlacher's even quoted!

"Being a former athlete and having a chance to be a part of a group trying to purchase a professional team, it's pretty cool," Urlacher told ESPN on Monday. "It's especially cool to be involved with Alex. Alex is the man. You've got Kelce, Joe Thomas, DeMarco Murray. It's great to be in a group with them."
The group has already put in a $1.7 billion bid, presumably from all the revenue that RESTORE has accumulated thanks to their mission of being in every single Chicago sightline possible. There are, in fact, too many punchlines to this story to pick one (ok fine I lied, there's only one way for Bears fans to grow more miserable and that's to adopt the Mets), but just know that I heartily approve of each and every one you decide on.
