2021 NFL Draft: Breaking down “the other” QBs Bears could target

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images

If the Bears don’t trade up in the first round, they could very likely target one of these four quarterbacks.

In the 2021 NFL Draft, there are the consensus top five quarterbacks, and then there’s a major drop-off.

That’s what many draft analysts believe, and it seems very clear that the only signal-callers likely to have their names called in Round 1 are Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, Trey Lance and Mac Jones.

While the top...

It was over six years ago that UAB’s football program had been shut down. Fast forward to now, and they have as many as three prospects worthy of being selected in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Two of those prospects were invited to the Reese’s Senior Bowl and had the chance to showcase their talents in front of NFL coaches and scouts in...

Bears re-sign Michael Joseph

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

On Friday the Chicago Bears announced that they were re-signing defensive back Michael Joseph to a one-year contract.

Joseph, who played his high school ball at Oswego (IL) High School, was originally an undrafted free agent cornerback from University of Dubuque in 2018. He spent most of his first two years in Chicago on the practice squad, save for the final two games of the 2019 season when he was signed to the active roster.

He spent all of the 2020 season...

2021 NFL Draft: ‘Pro-ready’ prospects for Bears to target on Day 3

The Bears could use immediate production out of their rookie class, and these Day 3 draft prospects have the polished skill sets to step into solid roles.

The Bears have very clearly been in a “win-now” mode this offseason.

With Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy’s jobs likely on the line heading into the 2021 season, the current regime has presumably been looking for talent to help them get over the hump and take that next step into being...

Earlier today the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport Tweeted out that the Chicago Bears are still shopping wide receiver Anthony Miller, and that they have been in discussions with “a number of teams.”

Word first leaked about the Bears shopping Miller last month when free agency was just starting to heat up, so now that the market has settled a bit, it appears possible that some teams are looking to revisit acquiring the former 2nd-round selection.

Bears expectations roundtable: Feeling super special

In the final part of an expectations debate, the glorious third phase comes into focus. For once, it might actually be special.

There’s a prevailing joke concerning the Chicago Bears’ special teams group over the years. Save for the stellar Devin Hester-Robbie-Gould-Dave Toub era from 2004-2012, Chicago hasn’t exactly been known for maximizing the third phase. If anything, it’s been more about preventing the damage of losing that monumental field...
