Brad Briggs of is reporting that Sarnoff is angling for a contract with $8 million guaranteed for the 9-year veteran.

The Bears may be searching for a 1-2 punch with the addition of Taylor or maybe even a replacement for their current RB, Matt Forte, who had offseason arthroscopic knee surgery.

Check back with for more free agency reports as it will certainly be a busy day considering it is the first day of free agency.

    This is without a doubt one of the “Bone-head” moves of the year. To let C.T. get away from Minnesota is just plain dumb. He is the most underrated RB in the NFL. He’s a smarter/savvy runner than A.P.; and i would have started him in more games towards the end of the season over Peterson. If the Bears get him and Peppers; who wreaked havoc in our backfield last year, sign with the bears it’s going to be a giant KO to us when we meet in 2010.

    word is he signed with the Bears. Way to ruin my day Chester. I wish you well, but not when you play my Vikings twice a year.

    The NFC North is going to be fun to watch next year. I predict The Bears , The Packers, and of course the Vikings all in the playoffs battling it out. That’s going to be sweet!

    Foolish. This could have been completely prevented. Not only did we let Chester go…. we let him go to CHICAGO! Absolute foolish front office move.

    I hope the Vikings have a plan and know what they are doing because Chester Taylor is great. Who will replace him? Please, someone who doesn’t fumble the ball. Chester, we will miss you. He should have had the ball more last year. The Bears also got Peppers. It will be rough next year against the Bears. Peppers did a job on Brett. Please, we have to protect Brett or we won’t get to the Super Bowl.
