Could the Chicago Bears still be looking for competition at safety?
Earlier this week, the Chicago Bears announced that Jordan Lucas, a safety who they had signed this offseason, had opted out of the 2020 season due to concerns over COVID-19. The former Kansas City Chiefs thumper was likely going to compete for the fourth and final safety position on the roster.
Obviously Eddie Jackson and Tashaun Gipson are locks, and Deon Bush likely has the inside track on the third slot. However, the Bears will probably carry a fourth, as they currently have Sherrick McManis listed as the backup free safety behind Eddie Jackson.
