  Bears | Two should be ready for camp    Fri Apr 3, 08:00 PM

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hip) and LB Roquan Smith (pectoral) are on track in their rehab and should be ready for training camp, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: Burton only appeared in eight games last year and was a huge disappointment. The No.6 tight end (standard-scoring leagues) in 2018, Burton's numbers fell off the map and he finished at No.83 in 2019. We'll see if he can stay healthy and get his career back on track with the Bears.

  Bears | Anthony Miller making progress    Fri Apr 3, 07:56 PM

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) is on track in his rehab and should be ready for training camp, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: Miller had more catches and more yards as a sophomore in 2019, but his fantasy numbers took a step back. The main reason was his touchdowns going from 7 in 2018 to just 2 in 2019. We'll see if Miller can flourish in 2020 with whatever quarterback (Nick Foles, Mitchell Trubisky) is going to win the starting job.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky on track for camp    Fri Apr 3, 07:31 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is on track in his rehab and should be ready for training camp, according to general manage Ryan Pace.

Chicago Bears QBs Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles will participate in an open competition for the 2020 starting quarterback job, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: Trubisky has failed to play up to expectations, so the Bears made a move to add competition. We'll see if Foles can win the job in training camp. Either way, Trubisky is on his last leg with the Bears.

  Bears | First downs rare for Tarik Cohen in 2019    Thu Mar 26, 11:44 PM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen picked up a first down on only 18 of his 79 catches in 2019. The resulting 22.8-percent first-down rate was the lowest in the league among all players with at least 50 receptions.

Footballguys view: Cohen will need to be better in this department in 2020. Lord only knows who is going to be the starting quarterback to get him (and others) the ball. We'll see Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky compete for the starting job in training camp.

  Bears | Tyler Bray back with Chicago    Wed Mar 25, 05:30 PM

Free-agent QB Tyler Bray (Bears) re-signed with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 25. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Bray has experience working with Matt Nagy dating back to their days with the Chiefs. He's been with the Bears since 2018 but was released early in the 2019 season. Bray will likely work as the No.3 option for the Bears behind Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles was acquired by the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 18, in exchange for a compensatory fourth-round pick.

Footballguys view: The Bears are looking for competition to push Mitchell Trubisky for the starting job. Foles has plenty of experience working under both Bears head coach Matt Nagy and Bears quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. We'll see if Foles can actually win the starting job in training camp.

  Bears | Chicago narrowing search for veteran QB    Mon Mar 16, 03:39 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton and Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles are reportedly targets for the Chicago Bears, who appear to be focused on acquiring a veteran quarterback to compete with Mitchell Trubisky for the starting job.

Footballguys view: Apparently the Bears have moved on from pursuing Teddy Bridgewater. It wasn't that long ago when the Bears moved up in the draft for Trubisky and now they want to find a way to move on at the quarterback position. As we always say, things move pretty quickly around here.

  Bears | Austin Hooper targeted by Chicago    Thu Feb 27, 09:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent TE Austin Hooper is a top target of the Chicago Bears in free agency, according to a source Thursday, Feb. 27. Bidding is expected to reach as high as $12 million per year for Hooper's services on the open market.

Footballguys view: The Packers and Washington will also reportedly be in on Hooper. He might not be as good of a fantasy prospect on Chicago as he would be on other teams so fantasy teams should root for the Bears to fall short in their pursuit of him.

  Bears | Chicago looking to create QB competition?    Thu Feb 27, 05:03 PM

The Chicago Bears are expected to add a veteran quarterback this offseason to push QB Mitchell Trubisky, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN Thursday, Feb. 27. Fowler adds the ideal candidate would have 'pedigree and extensive starter's experience.'

Footballguys view: Andy Dalton would fit here, but it's also possible a quarterback or two that we aren't expecting will become available after some of the free agents/trade targets find homes. Either way, Trubisky is in a do or die year with the Bears.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery can be the team's featured back and carry a heavier load if the team chooses to run more in 2020, according to general manager Ryan Pace Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: Montgomery had a disappointing rookie season for the Bears in 2019. We'll see if he's ready to do more for the team this season. It sounds like that's going to be the case so long as he can respond with production.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky still the starter    Tue Feb 25, 10:01 AM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky was reaffirmed the starter by general manager Ryan Pace Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: The Bears want Trubisky to take a step forward this season. In 2019, Trubisky had a disappointing season but there were flashes that showed what he could be -- brief flashes that he needs to build on. The Bears give him an endorsement now but Trubisky is clearly on the hot seat.

  Bears | Chicago adding Demetrius Harris    Wed Feb 19, 05:17 PM

Free-agent TE Demetrius Harris (Browns) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, Feb. 19, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Harris has familiarity with Matt Nagy's scheme from their time together with the Chiefs. The Bears have a ton of question marks at the tight end position with Trey Burton and Adam Shaheen. We've always liked Harris in deep dynasty formats, and this is a great landing spot for him.

  Bears | Chicago giving up on Adam Shaheen?    Sun Feb 16, 10:13 PM

Chicago Bears TE Adam Shaheen will be on the roster for the start of training camp, according to general manager Ryan Pace, but expectations for Shaheen are 'low' for 2020, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com.

Footballguys view: Shaheen has not worked out as planned. An intriguing prospect from tiny Ashland College, Shaheen was a second-round pick for the Bears in the 2017 NFL draft. He has not played a full 16-game season in three years as a pro, and Shaheen only has 26 catches for 249 yards and four touchdowns with the Bears. We should see them upgrade the position in the draft or free agency this offseason. Shaheen is no lock for the 53-man roster.
