Bears sign rookie RB Josh Caldwell

With every passing day, it becomes more apparent that Matt Nagy is content resting his starters and valuable playmakers. Assuming the Bears are going to hold out Tarik Cohen, Mike Davis and David Montgomery for the remainder of the preseason, the Bears are in need of reserves for the remaining two season games. After all, you can’t run with Kerrith Whyte and Ryan Nall for the entirety of those two preseason games, as evidenced by how running-back-turned-wide-receiver Taquan Mizzell got...

Chicago Bears sign running back Josh Caldwell

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears have been sitting on 88 active players on their offseason roster after waiving Emanuel Hall (WR) and Elliott Fry (K), but earlier today they added free agent running back Josh Caldwell (5’11”, 220) to fill one spot.

The 23-year old Caldwell, an undrafted free agent from Northwest Missouri State, was just released by the Kansas City Chiefs last week. In K.C.’s preseason opener he rushed 4 times for 59 yards and a touchdown,...

Akiem Hicks focused on improving himself in preparation for Week 1

Matt Nagy has made a statement with the decision to rest his starters during preseason. He values the health of his starters above all else. So with two preseason games left — and 19 days left until the season opener against the Packers — you have to wonder how much focus is on the Packers? “Those 19 days are the most important thing right now,” defensive tackle Akiem Hicks said on Sunday. Hicks is coming off his first Pro Bowl season, where he anchored a Bears defensive line...

Mitch Trubisky ranked QB26 by Pro Football Focus

Chicago Bears fans get very defensive when it comes to QB Mitch Trubisky. It’s understandable, too. It’s been a long time — a very, very long time — since this team had a quarterback capable of winning a Super Bowl, and that includes the Jay Cutler era. Trubisky has the best chance of being that guy since, well, Jim McMahon. He may not be a perfect passer, but he’s certainly good enough to make big-time completions when the team needs it most. He’s also a heck of a playmaker when...

Longshot: Bears cornerback John Franklin III, a former 'Last Chance U' star, has a bigger goal in mind

John Franklin III, the former "Last Chance U" star and quarterback-turned-wide-receiver-turned-cornerback, wants to not only make the Bears' roster, but be one of the best players to ever play in the NFL.

NFL head coach job security rankings: How safe is Matt Nagy?

In the NFL, some players’ jobs aren’t safe for long. After all, NFL does stand for “Not For Long.” The same applies for head coaches. Dan Hanzus ranked the job security of every NFL head coach, from those and believes are riding the hot seat to those he believes are virtually untouchable. Where does Bears coach Matt Nagy fall? Nagy is “safer than a union dock worker with connections.” Translation? He’s not going anywhere. Nagy was a big hit in his first season in Chicago,...

Bears WR Allen Robinson: 'I look like a totally different player' this year

Good things come to those that wait. And for Bears receiver Allen Robinson, he’s been patiently waiting for this upcoming season. One year removed from recovery from reconstructive knee surgery, Robinson said the biggest thing for him this year was getting time before Organized Team Activities (OTAs) where he could train on his own. That wasn’t something he could do last season, as he was recovering from a torn ACL. “I think that was the biggest difference,” Robinson said Sunday....

Eddy Pineiro still on “thin ice” with Bears after Elliott Fry’s departure

The Bears cut Elliott Fry on Sunday, which leaves Eddy Pineiro as the only kicker on their roster with the start of the regular season coming in just over two weeks. Outlasting his competition didn’t lead to a sigh of relief from Pineiro, however. The Bears haven’t been shy about sharing their plan to look [more]

Eddy Pineiro feels more confident as last kicker standing, for now

Eddy Pineiro was all smiles standing at the podium fielding questions from reporters as the last Bears kicker standing in a competition that started in rookie minicamp, long before he arrived in Chicago. Pineiro won the competition against Elliott Fry, who the Bears cut on Sunday, but he knows he hasn’t won the starting kicker job yet. With Pineiro currently the only kicker on the roster, he’ll get more opportunities to show the Bears that he’s their guy. Instead of rotating kickers,...

A remorseful Kyle Long set to return to practice

After a tumultuous week with two altercations which resulted in a brief suspension, it appears the Bears and G Kyle Long are ready to move forward as coach Matt Nagy confirmed the former pro-bowl lineman will return to practice this week. Long was briefly suspended after he had a physical altercation with DE Jalen Dalton in a practice earlier this week, which saw Long grab Dalton’s helmet and hit him repeatedly with it before being ejected from the field. As punishment, Long was left off...
