Last week, we kicked off what will be a weekly poll of the need areas of the Bears with the wide receiver position - this week, we're shifting it to the defensive end position. Unlike the receiver position, defensive end has a veritable superstar leading the corps, but beyond that, who knows. Israel Idonije had a decent 2010 opposite Julius Peppers, but this year was widely inconsistent. Corey Wootton, the fourth round pick from 2009, could hardly see the field from behind undrafted free agent Mario Addison and Seahawks castoff Nick Reed and, later in the season when those two were cut, Chauncey Davis.
So how many new faces will the Bears see on the roster to start the regular season?
