  Bears | Jordan Howard goes to Chicago    Sat Apr 30, 02:35 PM

Former Indiana RB Jordan Howard was taken by the Chicago Bears with the 150th pick in the fifth round of the NFL draft Saturday, April 30.

Footballguys view: Howard's size and talent could make him a full time starter but he takes some big hits and runs with a brutal style that makes injuries a real concern. Add in his upright running style and the fact that he isn't a receiver and you're looking at a guy who is somewhat limited right now.


  Bears | Jonathan Bullard taken by Chicago    Fri Apr 29, 10:06 PM

The Chicago Bears selected Florida DT Jonathan Bullard with the No. 72 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: A quick, explosive tackle who will mostly work in sub-packages.

The Chicago Bears selected Kansas State OG Cody Whitehair with the No. 56 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Footballguys view: The Bears add to their offensive line to help keep Jay Cutler upright and functioning. Whitehair will be a guard and should step in right away.

  Bears | Leonard Floyd to improve strength    Fri Apr 29, 04:42 PM

Chicago Bears LB Leonard Floyd said he wants to add more mass to his body and improve his strength to go along with his speed. General manager Ryan Pace said Floyd will work with the team's strength and sports science coaches when he reports for the offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: A lot of players need to add some strength and mass, and certainly learning how to maintain it is important for players who have never worked harder and played a longer season before. We think Floyd is in a good position here and could be a beast once he bulks up.

  Bears | Leonard Floyd ready to learn    Thu Apr 28, 10:12 PM

Chicago Bears LB Leonard Floyd said he is going to come in 'quiet as a rookie' and learn from his veteran teammates.

Footballguys view: Smart guy who falls into a great situation in a defense which needs a lot of help. John Fox will do some great things with him.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery not working out     Mon Apr 25, 05:54 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not show up for offseason workouts, according to a source. He is training in South Florida, according to a source, with the Bears' permission. Jeffery has already signed his franchise tag and is training in order to fix the soft tissue problems in his hamstring that plagued him in 2015.

Footballguys view: If he's there with the Bears' permission, then this is a non-issue. Jeffery is expected to report for mandatory minicamp from June 14 to June 16, if not sooner.

  Bears | Ezekiel Elliott of interest to Bears    Sat Apr 23, 01:14 PM

Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott is on the Chicago Bears' radar less than a week away from the NFL Draft. Elliott has already visited the Bears and has said that he would love to play for running backs coach Stan Drayton, who recruited Elliott to Ohio State and coached him there.

Footballguys view: With Matt Forte (Jets) moving on in free agency, the Bears could use a boost to the ground game. Yes, Jeremy Langford and Kadeem Carey are there, but a player like Elliott would be a serious upgrade at the position.

  Bears | Jarran Reed to Windy City?    Wed Apr 20, 08:12 AM

Alabama DT Jarran Reed is a player the Chicago Bears are heavily considering with the No. 11 overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Bears need to continue building their defense but 11th overall might seem a little high for a guy who seems ranked by many to be about the twentieth best player in the draft. Still, if A'Shawn Robinson and Sheldon Rankins are both gone, Reed is an elite run-stuffer who can step right in and help a team ranked as the No. 31 run defense in the NFL by Football Outsiders. The question is, do the Bears want a guy without much pass-rushing ability enough to take him at 11?

  Bears | Will Fuller met with Chicago    Wed Apr 20, 07:57 AM

Notre Dame WR Will Fuller met with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, April 19.

Footballguys view: Every year there is a player who divides both fans and analysts pretty much down the middle and this draft we have Fuller. His slight frame and inconsistent hands are points for his detractors while his vertical speed and big play ability are attractive to his proponents. The Bears want to keep building their wide receivers behind Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White (who missed all of last season with an injury), so drafting one makes sense, though there is a strong chance Fuller will not be there for them in the second round and 11 is far too early for him in the first.

  Bears | Chicago meets with Joey Bosa    Mon Apr 18, 01:27 PM

Ohio State DE Joey Bosa was scheduled to meet with the Chicago Bears Sunday, April 17.

Footballguys view: The Bears have the 11th-overall pick in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. We do not think a pass-rusher like Bosa is going to fall that far. He's got a great motor and a quick closing burst to the QB. Bosa is likely to be a top-10 pick, and it wouldn't surprise us to see him go off the board within the first five picks.

  Bears | Chicago in the market for a QB?    Sun Apr 17, 08:57 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's guaranteed money on his seven-year extension has all been paid, and beat writer Dan Wiederer believes the fact that the team isn't locked into keeping Cutler beyond 2016 makes it more likely the Bears will draft a quarterback at some point in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Don't be surprised if the Bears take a quarterback in the first or second round of the draft. Cutler does not seem to be their long-term solution at the position. He played well last year under former OC Adam Gase, but Cutler seems to be entering another make-or-break season in 2016.

  Bears | Kevin White will not be limited    Sat Apr 16, 10:17 AM

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (shin) will not have any limitations when the team starts their offseason workouts Monday, April 18.

Footballguys view: Great news here. White has tremendous ability an upside due to his speed, ball-tracking ability and quickness. His rookie season was a wash, but the Bears have something special here with this kid. We're excited to see White shine opposite Alshon Jeffery this season.

  Bears | Possible numbers for Alshon Jeffery deal    Tue Apr 12, 08:09 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to seek a deal upwards of five years and $55 million, which is the deal Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin signed when he joined the Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Jeffery is worth that price tag. He's got the size and speed to continue to be a dominant force in the NFL. We'll see how willing the Bears are to give him that contract.

  Bears | Muhammad Wilkerson unlikely to Chicago    Thu Apr 7, 02:28 PM

The Chicago Bears are unlikely to trade for New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson. The Jets won't just give him away, and Bears general manager Ryan Pace is putting a big premium on draft picks this year, so the chances of a trade happening appear slim, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

Footballguys view: They could use him, but the Jets will want to at least swap first round picks and the Bears aren't budging. The Jets aren't looking like they think they can keep Wilkerson long-term, and are trying to get some value for him.

  Bears | Wait and see with Bobby Massie    Wed Apr 6, 11:01 PM

The Chicago Bears signed OT Bobby Massie to a three-year contract in the offseason, but only $6.5 of the $18 million is guaranteed. If the team drafts a right tackle, or elects to move OG Kyle Long back to tackle, they could get out of Massie's deal after just a one-year experiment.

  Bears | Robbie Gould adding weight    Wed Apr 6, 01:53 AM

Chicago Bears PK Robbie Gould is looking to add a few pounds for the 2016 season, and he is eating junk good trying to achieve his goal. 'I just know that putting on weight for me is difficult and I'm not a junk food eater,' Gould said Tuesday, April 5. He is hoping the added weight will mean added strength.

  Bears | Chicago eyeing Muhammad Wilkerson?    Sun Apr 3, 03:22 PM

New York Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson could be pursued by the Chicago Bears as the NFL Draft approaches, according to ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: Cimini believes that the Jets would trade Wilkerson in a heartbeat if the Bears offered their 11th-overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. The Bears have done a good job in free agency and have a revamped defense which should get even stronger with the right picks in the draft. Perhaps giving up their first-round pick is something Bears GM Ryan Pace feels comfortable with if he can add a talent like Wilkerson.

  Bears | Myles Jack visits Bears    Fri Apr 1, 01:26 AM

UCLA LB Myles Jack visited with the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 31.

Footballguys view: Jack is one of the most versatile players in the 2016 NFL draft. He played safety and running back for the Bruins in addition to his duties at linebacker. Jack can play any linebacker spot in a 4-3 and has the range to succeed in coverage. He's a lock to be a first-round pick, and he should go off the board in the top 15.

Free-agent S Omar Bolden (Broncos) will visit the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 30, and they are the favorites to sign him.

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent TE Josh Hill signed an undisclosed offer sheet from the Chicago Bears, Tuesday, March 22, according to a source. The Saints have five days to match the Bears' offer.

Footballguys view: The Saints lost Ben Watson in free agency to the Baltimore Ravens. Hill is a good blocker, and he's underrated as a receiver. The financials of this offer sheet have not been disclosed, so we don't know if the Saints are going to match.

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (shin) is 100% healthy, according to general manager Ryan Pace. White missed all of his rookie season last year following surgery on a stress fracture in his left shin. Pace said it's up to White to now be mentally confident enough to play at full speed.

Footballguys view: Even though he's at full health, the Bears are still going to be cautious with White so as not to jeopardize his long-term future. White will be limited during the offseason if needed.

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent TE Josh Hill visited the Chicago Bears Monday, March 21, according to a source. Hill already visited the New York Jets last week.

Footballguys view: Hill is a good blocker, and he's got the ability to be a dangerous receiver after the catch. With Martellus Bennett traded to the Patriots, the Bears could use some help with Zach Miller at the TE position.

  Bears | Lance Dunbar visiting Bears    Wed Mar 16, 09:41 AM

Free-agent RB Lance Dunbar (Cowboys) is visiting the Chicago Bears Wednesday, March 16.

Footballguys view: The Bears missed out on RB C.J. Anderson even though they offered him a four-year, $19 million deal. They are clearly looking for RB help after losing Matt Forte (Jets) in free agency. Dunbar is merely a change-of-pace back who could work in a RBBC with Jeremy Langford.

  Bears | Zach Miller returns to Chicago    Mon Mar 14, 06:36 PM

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal to return to the Bears Monday, March 14, according to a source. He can make $2 million more in incentives.

Footballguys view: The Bears weren't exactly in a rush here. They finally get Miller done, and he should continue his role as the lead TE in the offense. He finished 2015 with a career-best 34 catches, 439 yards and five TDs. That was good for a TE16 finish in standard-scoring fantasy leagues. If healthy, he could break into the top 12 fantasy tight ends in 2016.
