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.
