Bears thought they had deal with Patriots for Olsen

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune took at look at the Bears’ tight ends today and had a little Patriots-related nugget about Greg Olsen:

The Bears thought they had a deal lined up with New England going into draft weekend, a trade that would have netted them a second-round draft pick in return, but the Patriots drafted Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez and solved their need that way.

Sometimes the best deals are the ones you don’t end up making.
