  Bears | Brad Childress leaving Chicago    Tue Jan 14, 11:19 PM

Chicago Bears senior offensive assistant Brad Childress reportedly told head coach Matt Nagy he will no longer serve in his current role. Childress also told Cleveland Plain Dealer writer May Kay Cabot that it is possible he'll help new Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski in some capacity - potentially one similar to the one he is leaving in Chicago.

Footballguys view: There is no current offer from the new Browns head coach, but Childress is more or less just 'putting it out there' because he loves Stefanski. With Cleveland needing as much help as possible, we could see Childress getting the offer in the near future.

  Bears | Brandon Scherff unlikely an option    Sat Jan 11, 08:53 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent OG Brandon Scherff likely will not be an option for the Chicago Bears if he hits the free-agent market since he likely will be seeking more than the Bears will be willing to spend, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

  Bears | Allen Robinson returned to form    Fri Jan 3, 10:29 PM

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson finished with 98 catches on a career-high 154 targets for 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns this season, ranking seventh in the NFL in receptions and third in targets.

Footballguys view: Mitchell Trubisky is the Bears quarterback in 2020 for better or worse. If he gets better this season then that could mean even better numbers for Robinson. Expect the Bears to add more talent to the passing attack this offseason.

  Bears | Another shoulder surgery for Anthony Miller    Tue Dec 31, 02:30 PM

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) will need surgery on his left shoulder for the second time in as many offseasons after injuring it returning a kickoff in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: Two years and two shoulder surgeries to the same shoulder is a bad sign. He had some big games down the stretch for the Bears, but Miller didn't really have much of an impact until the halfway point of the season. He'll be the No.2 receiver opposite of Allen Robinson but this surgery (just like last year) might cause him to be limited in training camp.

  Bears | Trey Burton goes under the knife    Tue Dec 31, 02:23 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hip) recently underwent surgery on his injured hip, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: Burton didn't do much of anything in eight games for the Bears this year. He finished the season with just 14 catches for 84 yards. We'll see if he can get right after this hip surgery and have a bounce-back year in 2020.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky to remain starter    Tue Dec 31, 11:06 AM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky will remain the starting quarterback in 2020.

Footballguys view: Trubisky will be in a make-or-break year in 2020. He's been a bust for the Bears so far in three seasons and the team has him under contract through 2021 with the fifth-year option. He may have to undergo left shoulder surgery according to GM Ryan Pace sometime this offseason.

  Bears | Taylor Gabriel not on field    Thu Dec 26, 03:54 PM

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.

Footballguys view: Gabriel has been out since Week 13. He is due 5.5 million next year and can be released without a huge cap hit, but Matt Nagy seems to value him as an important tactical piece. If this concussion becomes a long term issue, Javon Wims and Riley Ridley would be next in line for playing time.
