Since 2009, Mark Allen Hanrahan has sourced and closed real estate transactions as the managing partner of Markmel Company, LLC in Urbandale, Iowa. In his spare time, Mark Allen Hanrahan enjoys rooting for the Chicago Bears.

The 2016 season was quite disappointing for dedicated Bears fans, as the team struggled to a disappointing 3-16 record and finished last in the NFC North division. Nevertheless, the Bears’ management team made some big moves during the off season, which should propel the squad to success in 2017 and beyond.

First, the released veteran quarterback Jay Cutler, who decided to retire after the Bears let him go. Next, the team signed 27-year-old quarterback Mike Glennon for a three year contract for $14.5 million per year. While Glennon hadn’t started a game since 2014 for his previous team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, many feel he has the skills and experience to lead the Bears.

Their second move was also at quarterback, where they traded up in draft picks from the number three spot to number two in order to acquire Mitchell Trubisky from the University of North Carolina. He signed with the team for a four year $29 million contract combined with a $19.25 million signing bonus.
