The Chicago Bears have announced the players that will serve as captains for the 2017 season. Like many teams, theses players were voted on by the players themselves.
Mike Glennon, QB - Glennon did just enough on the field to maintain his status as QB1 for the Bears, but he apparently did plenty to be voted by his teammates as a captain.
Josh Sitton, OG - The Pro Bowl guard has been a locker room leader since he joined the Bears about a year ago. He’s entering his tenth season in the NFL, which is the most on the current roster.
Jerrell Freeman, ILB - Last year it was the other free agent inside linebacker, Danny Trevathan, that was named captain, but after an outstanding first year in Chicago, his teammates gave Freeman the honor this season.
Quintin Demps, S - This is his first year in Chicago, but he came over with a reputation as a great locker room guy, and that leadership has already paid dividends with the Bears.
Sherrick McManis, ST - McManis has never been able take hold of a roster spot based on his defensive back skills alone, but as a special teamer, he’s one of the best in the NFL.
The Bears will also have a rotating sixth captain each week.
