BBAO: Kelvin Hayden might test market

We're Black and Blue All Over:

The Chicago Bears have bid farewell to their former nickelback, D.J. Moore, whom they apparently won't re-sign as a free agent. Now, the player who took over that position last season is expected to test his value in free agency before making a decision on his 2013 team.

Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com reports the Bears want to re-sign cornerback Kelvin Hayden, a pending free agent. But Hayden, Dickerson reports, "is expected to explore other options in free agency before coming to any final decision, according to a league source."

If Hayden signs elsewhere, the Bears would have to acquire a nickelback during the offseason. Cornerback Zack Bowman is also a pending free agent.
