Bears' Tinoisamoa earns starting spot 

June, 24, 2009
The Bears wasted no time in moving Pisa Tinoisamoa into the starting lineup.

As organized team activities ended, coach Lovie Smith announced that the former Ram will be the starting strongside linebacker. Tinoisamoa beat out Hunter Hillenmeyer for the job. The Bears signed Tinoisamoa in May.

Bills on the lookout: The Bills considered signing Tinoisamoa, and they may regret not getting a deal done. As the Bills concluded their OTAs, they revealed they are still in the market for a veteran strongside linebacker. The Bills are expected to watch the waiver wire through September to see if there is a strongside linebacker who can challenge Keith Ellison for the starting job.
