Henry Melton is licking his chops for the Bears on Thursday Night

bearsThe Chicago Bears gave up on Henry Melton after last season and when Melton signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys with a three-year option, he knew the Bears were on the schedule.  On Thursday at Soldier Field, Melton will return and he is ready.

“I don’t want to say it’s been circled, but I’ve been looking forward to it,” Melton said.

Melton’s return to Chicago isn’t the only reunion. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli was with the Bears from 2009-12. The Bears have four players (Jeremiah Ratliff, Danny McCray, Terrance Mitchell and Dante Rosario) and four coaches (Joe DeCamillis, Reggie Herring, Paul Pasqualoni and Skip Peete) with ties to the Cowboys.

“Sometimes it happens when someone goes there and then they know a lot of guys and then maybe a couple of coaches will go there and then sometimes players follow because when you’re looking for players, ‘Yeah, I had that guy in Dallas. He’s a good player. He can fit for us,’” coach Jason Garrett said. “Sometimes that happens and that adds a little momentum to the flow of players there.”

I expect the Bears to get blown out this Thursday, but hopefully I am wrong.
