    Both Bears' safety spots up for grabs

    Five-time Pro Bowler Adrian Wilson and Danny McCray worked as the Bears' starting safeties Friday, but both positions are truly up for grabs, reports ESPN.com. Ryan Mundy, Brock Vereen and M.D. Jennings also have taken snaps with the starters. Chris Conte (shoulder) and Craig Steltz (groin) remain on the PUP list. If Conte comes back healthy, he'll be a favorite to start at free safety, the website said.

    Deone Bucannon should start immediately for the Cards

    We love the addition of Washington State's Deone Bucannon to the Arizona secondary. Already ripe with talent, Bucannon will bring a physical edge to the defensive backfield and especially help the Cardinals against the run. That could lead to a lot of tackles, which is of course great for Fantasy owners. To wit, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim compared him to Adrian Wilson. "He plays with a lot of passion and he'll be a great fit in our locker room," coach Bruce Arians said. "He's a humble kid who loves to play the game and wants to learn from the best. We'll give him opportunities to knock the crap out of people in our division."There's not a whole lot else to say except keep an eye out for him on Draft Day. We like him a lot. Consider him with a middle- to late-round pick in seasonal leagues, a mid-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a second-round choice in rookie-only drafts.

    Patriots place veteran Adrian Wilson on IR - but is he really hurt?

    The Patriots are reporting that they have placed five-time Pro Bowl safety Adrian Wilson on IR with a hamstring injury. It is also being speculated that Wilson is not hurt, but is being paid by the Patriots as a veteran courtesy rather than waiving him. The 33-year-old cornerback signed a three-year contract as a free agent with the Patriots in mid-March after spending 12 years with Arizona. The versatile Wilson has 27 career interceptions and 25.5 sacks to his credit.
