A potential move by the Bears from the lakefront stadium has been picking up steam in recent weeks, after the team announced a bid to purchase Arlington International Racecourse. The famed thoroughbred track in the village of Arlington Heights sits about 30 miles northwest of Soldier Field on a 326-acre plot of land owned by Churchill Downs Inc. that is for sale.

The Chicago Bears are making their pick for a new general manager. Chicago announced Tuesday that it has hired Ryan Poles as the franchise’s new GM. Poles was working as the executive director of player personnel for the Kansas City Chiefs. The 36-year-old will take the place of Ryan Pace, who was fired along with head coach Matt Nagy after a disappointing 6-and-11 season. Poles spent 13 seasons working in Kansas City.
