    Yup looks like Flynn will be gone here soon! Hopefully we get something for him and get some defensive help.

    Hill, Graham, and possibly and draft pick could compete for the number 2 spot. Right now I'd bet on Graham with Hill taking over Graham's role of practice squad qb.

    The Bears didn’t like him as a QB prospect, so he’s got that going for him. And he’s certainly big enough but I’m sure there’s a reason he’s coming from the Arena league. Good luck to him!

    I agree the Packers will either draft a QB, sign a UDFA QB or both. And unlike last year, there will be a QB camp this year in Green Bay.

    We'll get a compensatory pick for Flynn if he walks in free agency and we don't sign anyone else.

    Someone will get drafted. This guy is just an arm for OTA's when Flynn isn't around.

    Word on the street is that Nick Hill singlehandedly beat up Chuck Norris using only his toes.

    It is time, I wish him the best as well. I just hope they are not stupid enough to trade him within the division. I want us to play Flynn as little as possible, such as the AFC.

    I would think even most Bears fans know the Packers have been much better evaluating, acquiring, and developing QBs than the Bears over their lifetimes. That should make them hesitant to challenge the Packers and their fans regarding QBs. If they even know Nick Hill was once with the Bears, they should be worried the Packers will turn him into an NFL QB, again showing which team has the “QB factory” and which has been horrible evaluating, acquiring, and developing QBs. And for those foolish hooting Bears fans, if there are any, all a Packers fan has to do is answer with a list: Bart Starr, Lynn Dickey, Bret Favre, Aaron Rodgers and ask the Bears fans to match it. (Yes, the list goes back in time farther than that, but we’re dealing with Bears fans.)

    Book on Hill is that he is an accurate thrower but doesn't have a big arm. Compensatory pick for Flynn will be at the end of the third round so it's essentially a fourth rounder.

    He is also a Lefty is he not? Maybe they wanted the receivers to improve their hands and focus this off season. Catching a ball that is spinning the opposite direction with a slightly different trajectory should actually really help them be better prepared for whenever Rodgers doesn't throw an absolutely perfect rope to them.

    Bears fans are still clinging to that god damn year. Then the Bear fan President goes and invites that team to the white house. They are as bad as if not worse than the 72 dolphins for just not going away.
