Orange is the new Navy?  Back to the Future?   An old former Chicago Bear is now the newest Chicago Bear as the Bears signed punter Spencer Lanning.  Apparently if you punt 10 times in a game and then have to tackle Richard Sherman on a 64 yard punt return it leads to an injury the following week as current Bears punter Pat O’ Donnell has been ruled out of Sunday’s game vs Oakland with a knee injury.   Lanning was with the Bears for a cup of coffee in 2011 and since then has spent time with the Jaguars, Jets, Buccaneers and most recently the Cleveland Browns, where last year he was the Cleveland’s punter for the entire 2014 season.   Last season, he appeared in all 16 games for the Cleveland tallying 3,824 yards punting and 10 touchbacks.
