Melton, although it will be hard for any committee of players to be able replace his value. Melton tore his ACL Sunday night against the Steelers. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Chicago brought Landon Cohen in for a workout on Tuesday, and are expected to sign him .

Cohen, who played for Bears defensive coordinator Mel Tucker in Jacksonville, and the scheme he was running in Dallas this year under Rod Marinelli, is certainly compatible with the schemes the bears are running now. Cohen has also been with the Patriots, Eagles, Cardinals and Seahawks.
