  Bears | Tarik Cohen update    Thu Jan 14, 01:55 AM

Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace indicated he is 'hopeful' that RB Tarik Cohen (knee) will be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: Cohen tore his ACL in September and missed the remainder of the 2020 season. It will be interesting to see how he's utilized upon his return. Yes, he's a nice change-of-pace back but starter David Montgomery seemed to thrive with a larger role once Cohen went down. Getting Cohen out there as a receiving back will reduce the production and fantasy potential of Montgomery in 2021. Stay tuned.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky on his way out?    Thu Jan 14, 12:55 AM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky may not be in the team's plans for 2021, in the opinion of ESPN's Jeff Dickerson, who noted that GM Ryan Pace declined to say the team would try to re-sign Trubisky during a press conference on Wednesday, Jan. 13. Pace instead said that the Bears 'need more out of the position,' and that 'everything is on the table' for next season.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft (taken before Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes) is set to be a free agent because the Bears declined his fifth-year option. We doubt Trubisky returns to the Bears. Sure, the team went to the playoffs only to get predictably bounced in the Wild Card Round but that doesn't mean Trubisky is the answer. The Bears will look for a new quarterback this offseason.

  Bears | Robert Quinn expected to return    Thu Jan 14, 12:48 AM

Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace 'all but conceded' that LB Robert Quinn will be back with the team in 2021, according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson, who points to Pace's comments about expecting Quinn to 'rebound' as well as Quinn's fully guaranteed salary for next season.

  Bears | No surgery for Khalil Mack    Thu Jan 14, 12:37 AM

  Bears | CHI GM and HC staying    Wed Jan 13, 11:18 AM

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy will return for 2021.

Footballguys view: Pace is in the final year of his contract in 2021. Nagy is under contract through the 2022 season. Both are on the hot seat...again. Backing into the postseason this year helped them stay around for one more season. We'll see what they can do to get the team further in 2021. Getting the right quarterback for the Bears is priority no.1 for Pace and Nagy.

  Bears | Allen Robinson uncertain about future in Chicago    Mon Jan 11, 01:45 PM

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson told the Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer on Monday, Jan. 11, that 'everything is pretty much on the table' as it relates to his impending free agency.

Footballguys view: No player in the league wants to be slapped with the franchise tag. We'll see what the Bears want to do with Robinson and money talks. Robinson has worked with poor quarterback play for most of his pro career. Imagine how much he could produce with a top-tier passer. He'll have plenty of interest on the open market.

  Bears | Chicago eliminated from the playoffs    Sun Jan 10, 07:45 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 19-of-29 passes for 199 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the NFC wild-card game loss in New Orleans on Sunday, Jan. 10.

TE Jimmy Graham ended up with 25 yards and two receptions with a touchdown, while TE Cole Kmet had three grabs for 16 yards on four targets.

  Bears | Mitchell Trubisky may not return in 2021    Sun Jan 10, 04:49 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky probably will not return to the Bears next season unless he has a long run in the playoffs this season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Trubisky has been average-to-bad as a starter in the NFL. The Bears will never live down passing up on both Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes to select Trubisky with the no.2 overall pick. He is likely to move on next season but it would only be to compete for a starting job. No team is going to hand him the keys based on his career play.

Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) sat out practice again Friday, Jan. 8, and is listed as questionable for the team's wild-card playoff game Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Mooney did not get any work in during the week of practice. That means he's at best a game-time decision for the Wild Card Round. Javon Wims and Riley Ridley could get a larger workload if Mooney is out.

  Bears | Chicago goes out with a whimper    Sun Jan 3, 08:04 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 33-of-42 passes for 252 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers, and he added 22 rushing yards. RB David Montgomery ended up with a game-high 69 yards and a score, while WR Darnell Mooney led the team with 11 receptions, 93 yards and 13 targets. Montgomery also had nine receptions for 63 yards, while TE Cole Kmet had seven catches for 41 yards on eight targets. WR Allen Robinson posted two catches for 37 yards, and WR Anthony Miller ended up with two catches for 13 yards, while TE Jimmy Graham finished with two grabs and five yards. DE Khalil Mack posted four total stops, a sack, a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit.

Footballguys view: The Bears were competitive for most of the game, but didn't have the firepower on offense or playmaking ability on defense to keep up with Aaron Rodgers. David Montgomery left briefly with a leg injury but came back in to be the engine of the offense, as he has been for the last month plus of the season. The Bears back into the playoffs and will go to New Orleans as the #7 seed next week.

  Bears | David Montgomery in elite company    Fri Jan 1, 11:51 PM

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery ranks second in the NFL in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns since Week 12, logging 529 yards and six scores in that span.

Footballguys view: Montgomery is a natural and powerful runner who lacks the speed to threaten a defense with a big play. However, he's playing to the maximum of his potential this season and has really flourished over the last several weeks. We'll see how the team reintroduces RB Tarik Cohen to the offense in 2021 when he's fully recovered from his knee injury. With Montgomery flourishing, there's no need for the Bears to take the rock away from him that much.
