“Chicago would be one of the ideal spots for me,’’ Mike Sims-Walker told Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune Monday. “With the offensive coordinator (Mike Martz) and Jay Cutler, the speedy receivers, the monster defense, and Matt Forte in the backfield, I think I can be the missing piece.
“They are close, one or two pieces away. Hopefully I can put them over the top.”
Sims-Walker has an obvious tie to the Bears. He spent time alongside Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice when Tice was Jacksonville’s assistant head coach/ tight ends. But Sims-Walker has another Chicago connection.
“I’m real cool with Matt Forte,’’ Sims-Walker said. “We trained together before the NFL Combine. We had the same agent (Adisa Bakari) at one time. We stayed together once during the offseason down in Davie, Fla. We’ve built a good relationship.’’
