Wilson likely to get first crack at No. 3 WR spot - Brad Biggs: Bears must replace Earl Bennett’s playing time with a new WR or make a subtle shift in the offense and not rely on three-receiver sets as often.

Palmer's effort impresses Trestman - Brad Biggs: Bears are considering veterans as they search for a backup to Cutler, but Marc Trestman feels good about what Jordan Palmer showed late in the preseason last year.

Ex-Jet Sanchez now in pool of vet QBs worth Bears’ consideration - Moon Mullin: The Bears may take a flyer on Sanchez because QB coach Matt Cavanaugh knows him from New York, or take a pass because QB coach Matt Cavanaugh knows him from New York.

Bears mailbag - Michael C. Wright answers questions on safeties, Melton, wide receivers, and linebackers.

Draft preview - Brent Sobleski: A good DT is worth his weight in gold. There are multiple first-round prospects in May's NFL draft class, including top-rated prospect Aaron Donald.

Draft preview - Doug Farrar with some underrated third-day draft prospects who could fill holes. Are any of them on the Bears' radar?

Draft preview - Greg Gabriel with a detailed look at two intriguing center prospects.

Mock Draft - Pat Kirwan: The Bears are lacking for a disruptive force inside. Timmy Jernigan's production in college didn't show up in sacks, but he was disruptive. I wonder about his ability to play 60 minutes.
