  Bears | Three Bears kick returner options    Sat May 27, 02:49 PM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen, RB Benny Cunningham and WR Deonte Thompson are expected to compete for the kick returner job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Cohen may be the most exciting player to watch here. Nicknamed "Tarik the Freak" in college at North Carolina A&T, Cohen has some Darren Sproles (Eagles) to his game because of his compact build (5'6" 179 pounds) and incredible foot frequency.

  Bears | Victor Cruz joins Bears    Thu May 25, 02:22 PM

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) is signing a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, May 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Cruz actually could have an impact with the Bears if he has even an ounce of gas left in the tank. Kevin White is always hurt and other than Markus Wheaton, there's nobody else there who seems like they have promise behind White and Cameron Meredith. Mind you, Cruz looked done last season with the New York Giants, so buyer beware.

  Bears | Kevin White working on basics    Thu May 25, 12:28 AM

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White has spent the last few months working to align his stride after a stress fracture in his left tibia ruined his rookie season and a left fibular spiral fracture and severe ankle ligament damage cost him 12 games last season, according to the Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell.

Footballguys view: White has a lot to catch up on after missing his rookie season in 2015. A first-round pick in 2015, White needed to refine his route-running ability coming out of college...and that's still the case. He should be considered a potentially high upside WR5 for fantasy owners. White will compete for targets with Cameron Meredith in the starting lineup.

  Bears | Kyle Long may move to left side    Sun May 21, 06:46 PM

The Chicago Bears are considering moving OG Kyle Long (ankle) to left guard and OG Josh Sitton to right guard when Long is ready to return to the field, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Long is still recovering from the ankle surgery that he had last November. At this point, he's only running on an underwater treadmill. Expect Long to miss all of OTAs and get eased into action once training camp rolls around.

  Bears | Zach Miller close to 100 percent     Sat May 20, 10:57 PM

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (foot) said Satrurday, May 20, that he is 'close to 100 percent' but plans to take it easy during OTAs.

Footballguys view: Miller can be productive when healthy, but staying healthy has been a problem for him as a pro. We should see rookie Adam Shaheen (Ashland) push for the starting job this year. Shaheen was often referred to as "Baby Gronk" on Draft Twitter, and he is certainly a physical talent with incredible upside. Entering his age-33 season, Miller is unlikely to have much fantasy punch left.

  Bears | Chicago inks Adam Shaheen    Fri May 19, 03:42 PM

Chicago Bears second-round pick TE Adam Shaheen signed his four-year rookie contract Friday, May 19. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: He was called "Baby Gronk" leading up to the draft, and Shaheen was certainly a favorite of Draft Twitter. The Ashland prospect dominated the Division II level, and he did it with a size/speed combination rarely seen at that level. Shaheen measures in at 6'7" 280 pounds, and he says he got big in college eating Chipotle. He'll work behind Zach Miller this year, but Shaheen is one of our favorite rookie TEs to add in dynasty leagues.

  Bears | Victor Cruz's Bears visit continues    Tue May 16, 09:19 AM

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) is continuing to meet with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, May 16.

Footballguys view: The Bears may have interest in Cruz as a veteran who could fill the role vacated by Eddie Royal. They've added some questionable talents earlier this year at wide receiver, including Markus Wheaton and Kendall Wright. Cruz isn't the same player he used to be, but perhaps he'd find a spot on the WR-needy Bears roster.

  Bears | Tarik Cohen to see third-down work    Tue May 16, 09:01 AM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen will see work on third downs, according to head coach John Fox.

Footballguys view: Cohen is small but compact, and he's freakishly athletic in the open field. The Bears need a change-of-pace back to play behind Jordan Howard, and Cohen could easily fill that role.

  Bears | Eddie Jackson signs contract    Mon May 15, 04:02 PM

Chicago Bears S Eddie Jackson signed his four-year rookie deal Monday, May 15.

Footballguys view: A fourth-round pick out of Alabama, Jackson is an instinctive player who seems to always be around the ball. Jackson can make plays as a return man as well. He'll compete for playing time early as a rookie.

  Bears | Chicago inks Titus Davis    Sun May 14, 03:54 PM

Free-agent WR Titus Davis (Jets) signed an undisclosed contract with the Chicago Bears and waived WR Levonte Whitfield on Sunday, May 14.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Central Michigan in 2015, Davis has been bouncing around the league since becoming a pro. A productive player in college, Davis has decent size (6'1" 200 pounds) but needs to show better burst at the stem of his routes in order to get proper separation.

  Bears | Kevin White 'looks very healthy'    Sat May 13, 11:47 AM

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White has been limited to four games in his first two years due to injuries, but head coach John Fox appears to like how his third season is starting.

Footballguys view: White had amazing ability two years ago, but have these injuries robbed him of his speed and playmaking skills? We'll have to wait and see. We still have stock in White in dynasty formats as it's tough to let go of a former first-round pick (and we're just stubborn sometimes). Fantasy owners in redraft leagues should look at him as a late-round flier. He's WR59 (12.07) in 12-team PPR leagues at this time.

  Bears | Bears ink two rookies to contracts    Thu May 11, 07:48 PM

Chicago Bears fourth-round RB Tarik Cohen and fifth-round OL Jordan Morgan agreed to terms with the club Thursday, May 11.

Footballguys view: They called Tarik Cohen "The Freak" in college at North Carolina A&T, and with a quick search on YouTube you'll find clips of him catching a pass while doing a backflip. Cohen is small (5'6" 179 pounds) but he's compactly built. He plays with great foot frequency (think Jacquizz Rodgers or Darren Sproles) and can change direction on a dime. Cohen should be used as a change-of-pace back behind Jordan Howard.

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal was released Thursday, May 11. Additionally, C Cornelius Edison, FB Paul Lasike and DL Will Sutton were waived.

  Bears | Tarik Cohen could add extra dimension    Sun Apr 30, 11:48 PM

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen could serve as a change-of-pace back for the offense, according to beat writer Mark Potash.

Footballguys view: Tarik is called "The Freak" for a reason. He can be seen on YouTube catching passes while doing backflips, and he can be seen on the field making big plays as a runner, receiver or return man.

  Bears | No fifth-year option for Kyle Fuller    Sat Apr 29, 08:49 PM

Chicago Bears CB Kyle Fuller's fifth-year option will not be picked up before the May 2 deadline, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: Fuller has been hurt or a disappointment and sometimes even a DFS target corner to exploit in his tough stint with the Bears. The team didn't draft any corners after a lot of moves during the draft to move up and move down.

  Bears | Chicago selects Adam Shaheen    Fri Apr 28, 08:24 PM

The Chicago Bears selected Ashland TE Adam Shaheen with the No. 45 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

Footballguys view: Shaheen weighs 280 or so pounds and yet moves like a man half that size. Shockingly, he is an ex-basketball player and could be a nice weapon for Mitch Trubisky and Mike Glennon.

  Bears | Mike Glennon to remain starter    Fri Apr 28, 12:16 AM

Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to GM Ryan Pace.

Footballguys view: It's going to take time for Mitch Trubisky to get his feet under him but the Bears rookie will probably be in the mix for a job. If the Bears are smart, and if Trubisky looks good, Glennon's salary shouldn't keep them from making the switch.

  Bears | Chicago picks Mitchell Trubisky second    Thu Apr 27, 08:22 PM

The Chicago Bears selected North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

Footballguys view: So that escalated quickly. The Bears traded up big time giving up the 3rd overall, 67th, 11th this year plus a 3rd next year. Trubinksy has a good build, exactly the type you look for in an NFL quarterback prospect. He's mobile, and can be dangerous with his legs, but also delivers a crisp ball. He can make a throw to anywhere on the field, with good velocity from any angle. The problem is experience, but if you liked what you saw, he's got the upside. We guess Mike Glennon isn't pleased.

  Bears | Jay Cutler expected to retire    Mon Apr 17, 04:53 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is likely to retire, according to's Jeff Dickerson. Dickerson said he would be surprised if Cutler doesn't hang up his cleats.

Footballguys view: There's just not a lot of interest in Cutler right now. We don't see that changing with the draft less than two weeks away. He's 34 years old and has collected over $100 million during his time in the NFL. It could be time for Cutler to retire so he can pose naked on a deck overlooking the ocean....again.

  Bears | Chicago studying Nathan Peterman    Fri Apr 14, 11:26 PM

Pittsburgh QB Nathan Peterman worked with Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains and quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone at the Senior Bowl and met with Chicago's staff again at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Peterman might be this year's mid-round pick who has the upside to be a quality starter in the league. He was the most impressive quarterback at the Senior Bowl, and he'd make for a fine developmental quarterback for the Bears. They have Mike Glennon as their starter, and the free agent addition has a couple of years (most likely) to prove himself. That could give Peterman plenty of time to develop.

Grambling WR Chad Williams is visiting the Chicago Bears this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Williams had a good week of practice at the 2017 Reese's Senior Bowl earlier this year. He can regularly high point catches and plays "above the rim" in the end zone. He plays larger than his size (6' 207 pounds) and has the athleticism, concentration and upside to make for an intriguing late-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Bears | Chicago meets with Marshon Lattimore    Mon Apr 3, 06:07 PM

Ohio State CB Marshon Lattimore met with the Chicago Bears Monday, April 3, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Lattimore is one of the most athletic players in the 2017 NFL draft. He's physical at the line of scrimmage and can stay in the back pocket of receivers down the field. He should be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and it wouldn't be outlandish for the Bears to select Lattimore with the 3rd-overall pick.
