Chester Taylor is Now a Member of the Chicago Bears

I think everyone was pretty much resigned to the idea that Chester Taylor would be leaving the Vikings as a UFA and signing with a team that would give him a shot to get more touches.

What might be a little harder to come to grips with is the fact that the Chicago Bears are the team that has nabbed Chester, giving him two annual shots at the Vikings for the next four years.

There’s nothing really to say here except, thank you Chester for four great years.  The offense was always better when it involved you, but with Adrian Peterson on the team, and especially with all the weapons that emerged last season, it just wasn’t in the cards for you to be used the way you probably wanted and deserved.

Now Chester gets the chance to play for Mike Martz, an offensive coordinator known for making good use of pass receiving running backs.

Oh, and did I mention the Bears just signed Julius Peppers, aka Bryant McKinnie‘s worst nightmare?

The NFC North balance of power may have just shifted radically.  Unless That Guy comes back.  Then everything will of course be fine.
