The Bears Den: February 25, 2014 - Chicago Bears NFL Combine news & notes

Matthew Stockman

"I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never, ever possibly destroy us." "Nice thinking, Ray."

Roster news - Michael C. Wright: The Bears announced Monday the re-signings of center Taylor Boggs and safety Derrick Martin to one-year contracts.

Time for Bears to develop a young QB - Michael C. Wright: While not exactly pressing, a need at the position exists. As it stands now, Cutler is the only QB on the current roster who has thrown a pass in a regular-season game.

Draft preview - Bob LeGere: The Bears could find themselves desperate for a difference-making D-lineman when they use the 14th overall pick in the draft on May 8, and Florida State's Timmy Jernigan sounds like he might be exactly what they need.

Draft preview - Dan Wiederer: Missouri DE Kony Ealy could address the Bears' pressing need for edge pass rushers if they take him at No. 14 in the NFL draft.

Draft preview - Rich Campbell: If the Bears take a safety in the first round of the NFL draft, they could have their pick of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix or Calvin Pryor.

Draft preview - Brent Sobleski: Pitt's Aaron Donald, Florida State's Telvin Smith and Arkansas' Chris Smith were the most impressive players on the field Monday during NFL combine workouts.
