Israel Idonije Looking Forward to Playing Chicago Bears

Israel Idonije was a productive player for the Chicago Bears but it still wasn’t enough for the team to show interest in retaining his services. Now a member of the Detroit Lions, Idonije will get a chance to face his old team twice during the 2013 season. Is he looking forward to that opportunity? You bet.

But the Bears aren’t the only team on the Lions’ schedule Idonije is looking forward to facing.

In a sense, Idonije would be right to be out for revenge in every game he plays in 2013 considering the low level of interest he received while a free agent. If he plays anywhere near the level he has in recent years, the Lions are getting a bargain with Idonije playing for the veteran’s minimum.
