The first portion of the NFL’s offseason has frenzied out, with the Chicago Bears making numerous additions to the team via free agency. The most added to spot on the roster was one of their biggest needs, the secondary.
Free agency brought them a couple new corners and a new safety. They also re-signed a few defensive backs to keep the depth trending upwards. The NFL Draft is less than a month away, and the odds are good that they’ll add even more competition at safety and corner either during draft weekend or as priority undrafted free agents.
Right now there are eighteen defensive backs on the roster and that number will surely grow. With so many players fighting for a roster spot and playing time, the competition will be fierce on the back end of Chicago’s defense.
In the latest edition of T Formation Conversation* (Subscribe now on iTunes), I go over the secondary moves made so far and speculate on some draft options.
* It dawned on me after recording that I referred to new Bears corner Marcus Cooper, as Jonathan Cooper and Florida corner Quincy Wilson, as Quincy Watson.
