Chicago Bears (Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports)
The entire offseason has been defined by one position for the Chicago Bears. Regardless of other signings and draft picks made, it is all about the quarterback.
But, that shouldn’t come as a surprise. It’s always about the quarterback — or lack thereof — in Chicago.
There is no question fans are most excited to see rookie Justin Fields, more than any other player, when the Bears open training camp in a few weeks. Finally, the franchise has legitimate hope when it comes to the most important position.
What about other positions, though? The Bears added several new names throughout the past few months, and a couple of key positions have gotten better. On the flip side, some positions became more of a question mark.
Aside from the big names, there are many worthy players to watch at Chicago Bears training camp.
Over the past few months, general manager Ryan Pace has done a nice job taking fliers on veteran players looking for new homes. He’s always open to the 1-year, prove-it type of contract.
This year, Pace took a gamble on a few specific free agents who come into training camp flying under the radar. If the Bears are to become a better football team as a whole, some of these players will need to step up and solidify their place on the roster.
There are five players, in particular, whom fans should look out for at camp. These guys will be out to prove they not only belong, but can make a difference within the Bears’ quest for a postseason run.
