Bears OLB Leonard Floyd training with 'no limitations' this offseason

Leonard Floyd has been turning heads during the Bears’ offseason program. Not only is he bigger and stronger than he was a year ago, but, most importantly, he’s healthy. When Floyd hasn’t been limited by injuries the past two seasons — a broken hand in 2018 or a knee injury in 2017 — he’s been working to break out past those brief flashes that he’s shown he can be. But Floyd is ready to do more than just flash his potential this season. He’s ready to fully live up to it....

Bears land CB, OT in new 2020 2-round mock draft

Is it crazy, maybe borderline insane, to talk about the 2020 NFL draft in June? Maybe. But it’s still fun. It’s even more fun for Chicago Bears fans, who suffered through the 2019 NFL draft without a first- or second-round pick. That won’t be the case next April when the Bears pick twice in the second round thanks in part to the package they received from Oakland in the Khalil Mack trade. Chicago has Oakland’s second-rounder in addition to their own. There’s a good chance the Bears...

If things go right, it could prove to be a launching point for a breakout season for...

In Appreciation of Tarik Cohen

Tarik Cohen followed up a solid rookie campaign with a really good sophomore season in 2018. Despite playing less than half of the available offensive snaps and getting fewer than 100 carries and 200 total touches, he finished with 1,169 yards from scrimmage, scored 8 touchdowns, and was one of the most explosive players in the NFL. For good measure, he was also a 1st team All Pro as a punt returner after leading the NFL in punt return yards and finishing 5th in yards per return. Despite all...

Eddie Jackson: Bears 'plan on taking this whole thing'

As we enter the quiet part of the offseason — six weeks before the Chicago Bears head to Bourbonnais for training camp — football is still very much on the mind of players. Safety Eddie Jackson hosted his first celebrity softball game at Boomers Stadium in Schaumburg, Illinois on Saturday, where teammates like outside linebacker Khalil Mack, guard Cody Whitehair and punter Pat O’Donnell participated. In terms of motivation, Jackson and his teammates have plenty to draw for when it...

Eddie Jackson: Bears 'taking this whole thing' in 2019

The Chicago Bears have a big chip on their shoulders due to the way their playoff run ended earlier this year, and safety Eddie Jackson thinks it’ll propel the team to greater heights in 2019. Speaking to reporters at a charity softball game, Jackson said the Bears “plan on taking this whole thing” in 2019, noting how the missed kick that ended his team’s 2018 season is a motivating force. “Everything — how short, and how far, we came,” Jackson said, per Patrick Finley of the...

Ranking the 100 best Bears players ever: No. 82, Doug Plank

Not everyone was fond of the way Doug Plank played football.

Bears opponents and their fans from 1975 to ’82 certainly weren’t. Some of Plank’s teammates disapproved as well, as did some of the reporters who covered the team. Commissioner Pete Rozelle? Not a fan.

But few players in the team’s 100-year...

10 NFL players poised to step into the spotlight this season

Football is a fickle game. Injuries can impact the entire season for some teams. It can also lead to young players stepping up after previously being unknown commodities. For other teams, the reliance on unproven players has paid off in the past. Just think about Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns last season. It’s in this that we check in on 10 NFL players set to step up during the 2019 season. Michael Gallup, wide receiver, Dallas Cowboys A third-round pick of the Cowboys last year,...

Bears expect Trey Burton, Anthony Miller to be ready for training camp

One of the key aspects in the success of the Chicago Bears’ 2018 season was how they were able to stay relatively healthy throughout the duration of the season. Sure, they weren’t immune to injuries with Mitch Trubisky, Allen Robinson, Eddie Jackson and Khalil Mack each missing a couple of games. But overall, the Bears were one of the healthier teams last season. If there’s a time to be battling the injury bug, it’s during offseason workouts rather than the regular season. Three...

Louis Riddick predicts Bears offense will 'catch up' to defense in 2019

When it comes to analysis from national football experts, the Bears haven’t necessarily been on the receiving end of praise over the last few years. From former players criticizing Jay Cutler’s demeanor in the 2011 NFC Championship game, to the 2017 NFL draft, believers in the Monsters of the Midway have been somewhat scarce in the national media. But one ESPN analyst foresaw big things for the Bears and coach Matt Nagy from the start in 2018 and he’s predicting even more success in...

Weekend Poll: Will The Bears Defense Regress?

Will the change of coordinators and the loss of two starters cause a regression, or will the Bears actually improve on D in 2019?

One of the biggest questions this offseason is whether the Bears defense will regress following the departure of Vic Fangio, Adrian Amos and Bryce Callahan.

Fangio is noted by most as one of the top defensive minds in the NFL and has lead dominant defenses for multiple teams. Adrian Amos has developed in to a solid, reliable and healthy strong safety while Bryce...
