Andy and Mike talked with Pro Football Talk NFL Insider, Mike Florio this morning. Mike discussed some of the topics at the Owners Meetings in Orlando and also, how the Bears were able to surprise everyone and land Jared Allen.
Mike Florio: "It's amazing to me the way the Bears manipulated the media coverage of this... The Bears took a page out of the Patriots playbook. The Patriots do a great job of intimidating the Agents into saying nothing about possible Free Agents signing... So Ken Harris who represents Jared Allen, I assume was sworn to secrecy about the Bears' pursuit. And then after Marc Trestman and the rest of the NFC Coaches were available yesterday (at the League Meeting's), boom - the Bears announced it. I mean they snuck up on this thing. They kept it quiet, they kept it discreet."
