ORLANDO, Fla. – Marc Trestman said the Chicago Bears are not "anointing" Marquess Wilson as the No. 3 receiver in the offense, but the coach hopes the second-year player can develop like Alshon Jeffery did a year ago.
Wilson apparently will get...

Now that’s an offseason.
It took a while, but Phil Emery finally got the pass rusher the Bears needed.
None of this Willie Young stuff. If he could get only three sacks while playing on a Lions line with the best tandem of defensive tackles in...

Is Phil Emery going to surprise us all and go offense in the first round? -- @fronczak68 from Twitter
You need to learn to never say never in the NFL but I don’t know how the Bears will accomplish remaining work needed for the defense by going...

The official introduction came Monday afternoon at Halas Hall: Jared Allen, newest member of the Chicago Bears.
Five days after the five-time Pro Bowl defensive end agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the organization, Allen arrived for his...

Absolutely, Jared Allen said.
And he’s absolutely right.
“Absolutely, I think the Bears are closer to winning a Super Bowl than people think,’’ Allen said, and yeah, it’s true because of Allen.

The first question is whether the Bears can address any of their many defensive problems as the free-agency signing period opens Tuesday.
The second question is whether Phil Emery can say no.
Both questions involved Michael Bennett.

Jared Allen has recorded double-digit sacks in each of the last seven seasons. That’s a right defensive end the way it oughta be.
The way Julius Peppers used to be.
The way the Bears need one to be.
Even before introducing new defensive end...

General manager Phil Emery entered free agency this week on a mission to find two starting defensive ends to fortify the Bears’ beleaguered front.
He completed that task Thursday morning when he signed Willie Young to a three-year, $9 million...

Running back Matt Forte no doubt is pleased the Bears are bringing back cornerback Charles Tillman and he hopes defensive tackle Henry Melton will return too.
In any case, he has confidence in general manager’s Phil Emery’s plan to rebuild a...

Thank you, Brian Urlacher.
If the Bears can’t be in the Super Bowl, if the Bears can’t get themselves to this week, then at least an ex-Bear can offer us some entertaining cattiness.
And believe me, this season’s Bears could never be...

The more I watched the Seahawks defense in the Super Bowl, the more embarrassed I was for the Bears defense.
The less hope I hold for the Bears defense next season, as well. And maybe the season after that.
Sorry, but nobody in Chicago could watch the...

It would be fascinating if, by some measure of good fortune, the Bears went on the clock in the first round of the NFL draft May 8 with Pitt defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Louisville safety Calvin Pryor and Oklahoma State...
