Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater (5) kicks a game-winning field goal in overtime to defeat the Bears.

Professional sports has another kind of paywall--salary caps. They limit how much teams can spend on player salaries and can make it difficult for sports teams to change things up or keep them the same. So when players become free agents and head onto the sports market, things can get a bit nutty. Such was the case in the basketball world last Friday with the beginning of free agent signing. The Chicago Bulls have been looking for a shooting guard to help out star player Derrick Rose; and they may have landed an interesting catch. Meanwhile the Chicago Bears could have used someone to help them during Sunday’s last-minute defeat to the Denver Broncos. WBEZ's regular sports reporter, Cheryl Raye-Stout, joined Eight Forty-Eight to give insight on both the Bears and the Bulls.
