Bears | Team would like to re-sign Metcalf

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports the Chicago Bears are interested in re-signing OL Terrence Metcalf before he hits the free-agent market. However, there is not a lot of depth at guard in this year's free-agent class, and the market could bear more than the Bears, with $17 million in projected salary cap room, are willing to pay. "We've talked and stuff, but we haven't made anything final,'' Metcalf said of negotiations with the Bears. "My agent (Jeff Nalley) told me things are going good. I leave it at that.'' Metcalf made it clear when the season ended he wanted to return to the Bears. If he comes back, Metcalf said he is not about to take a back seat. "If they sign me back, it's my job,'' he said. "There is no doubt in my mind. Money means something, but you have to get out there and practice and prove yourself. If I hadn't done that now, then they wouldn't even bring me back. I'm not going to come back to have to prove myself again.''
