Chicago Bears Trade For Brandon Marshall From Miami Dolphins

Brandon Marshall poses with the Most Valuable Player of the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl award.

The NFC North just got tougher:

This move not only means the Chicago Bears finally have a really talented No. 1 wide receiver, but also that Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall are back together again. The two played in Denver together with the Broncos from 2006-08 before Cutler was dealt to the Bears. Marshall was dealt to the Miami Dolphins after the 2009 season and had been with them the last two years.

What does this move mean for the Lions? Well, it reinforces the Lions' need to improve their secondary. That was already a given with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in the division, but now it's especially important that the Lions do something to improve their pass defense. Cutler has a lot of talent, and now that he is free from Mike Martz and actually has a weapon at wide receiver, he could be in for a solid 2012 season.
