Chicago Bears Team Needs - OL, OLB

By: Greg Davis

The current offensive line starters average over thirty years of age, and left guard Terrence Metcalf will return from injury while right tackle Fred Miller is now thirty-four. Not only is age a concern, but the starting unit is supported by very little depth. Chicago will look to bring in linemen with an eye on the future, and will also look to add needed second-string help.

On defense, itís hard to imagine that the Bears would have a legitimate need, but outside linebacker Lance Briggs has been franchised and it appears that he may be dealt elsewhere. Briggs has been highly successful alongside Brian Urlacher, and if the team does move him, there will be a large hole to fill at the position. There is no doubt that Briggs is commanding attention from other teams, and the Bears will need to have a backup plan in preparation for his possible departure.

Discuss team needs on the Chicago Bears forum.
