  Bears | Payne likely to emerge at strong safety    Fri Jul 24, 06:05 PM

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports that "nothing is locked down here but Payne will probably emerge as the strong safety and he played well there at times last season."

Footballguys view: Payne was the #14 fantasy safety last year, and he should only get better with a year of experience under his belt. He showed that he has good ballhawking instincts, hits hard, and isn't afraid to come up aggressively to support the run. We like him to win the job easily and produce like a fantasy DB2 this year.

SS Kevin Payne (shoulder), the projected starter at strong safety, is coming off shoulder surgery and should be ready for organized team activities beginning May 20, but he's not locked in. 'I see a couple of positions open,' Smith said. 'Our safety position is a position that I can see could possibly be a cause for concern. Going in, very few teams can say they have a seasoned guy that has played at every position. We have possibilities that we feel comfortable with.'
