The Dallas Mavericks Need to Make Room For Johnathan Motley, FanSided, Johnathan Motley has been called up from the G-League and it is time to make room for him in the rotation.

The Chicago Bears Greatest Middle Linebacker Who You Got? | Chicago Sports Heroes: Then & Now, After Butkus Bears fans had to wait a few years for the next superstar middle linebacker.

That came in the person of Mike Singletary from Baylor University. Drafted in 1981, Singletary did not have to wait long to crack the starting line-up.

All he would accomplish is an amazing 10 consecutive Pro Bowl appearances, become one of the focal points of the Bears' great 46 defense of the 80's, and be instrumental on the Bears 1985 Super Bowl winning team. Singletary would scare running backs into fumbling. He just personified nasty.

The Hall of Fame brought Mike Singletary into the fold in 1998.

(OBF Note: So Bears fans, who's your choice? Me, I'm going with Singletary.)
