Outlook

The Bears were a big disappointment last year, so there wonâ??t be much expected of them this year, which is likely a good thing. A new coaching staff should be a positive for the Bears. But much of the season might depend on quarterback Jay Cutler. If he can regain the form of past years, the Bears can compete for a playoff spot. But if Cutler struggles again like last year, this team could really tank again in 2015.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
He is a rookie but we expect big things out of receiver Kevin White this season. White is a very talented receiver, playing opposite one of the best in the game. White should get his chances to make plenty of big plays on a weekly basis. As long as Jay Cutler doesnâ??t struggle too much, expect White to have a big rookie year. He can top 1,000 yards and score seven or eight touchdowns. White is going to be a fantasy factor for years to come.
FANTASY DUD
This year was supposed to be a breakout one for receiver Marquess Wilson, but things arenâ??t looking too promising for him right now. The Bears took a receiver with their first pick in the draft and signed Eddie Royal to serve as the No. 3 for the team. This leaves Wilson way down the depth chart as the likely No. 4 for the year. At this point, a change of teams might be the best way to jumpstart Wilsonâ??s career in the right direction.

Team Notes

Apr 27, 02:33 PM Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery continues to negotiate a long-term deal with the team, according to general manager Ryan Pace.
Apr 25, 06:03 PM Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not show up for offseason workouts, according to a source. He is training in South Florida, according to a source, with the Bears' permission. Jeffery has already signed his franchise tag and is training in order to fix the soft tissue problems in his hamstring that plagued him in 2015. He is expected to report for mandatory minicamp from June 14 to June 16, if not sooner, according to the source.
Apr 18, 12:43 PM Chicago Bears exclusive rights free-agent WR Josh Bellamy signed his tender offer Monday, April 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Apr 17, 09:03 PM Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's guaranteed money on his seven-year extension has all been paid, and beat writer Dan Wiederer believes the fact that the team isn't locked into keeping Cutler beyond 2016 makes it more likely the Bears will draft a quarterback at some point in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Apr 16, 10:23 AM Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (shin) will not have any limitations when the team starts their offseason workouts Monday, April 18.
Apr 15, 02:53 PM Chicago Bears OG Kyle Long's fifth-year option was exercised Friday, April 15, and he's under team control through 2017.
Apr 12, 08:13 PM Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to seek a deal upwards of five years and $55 million, which is the deal Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin signed when he joined the Chiefs.
Apr 06, 11:03 PM The Chicago Bears signed OT Bobby Massie to a three-year contract in the offseason, but only $6.5 of the $18 million is guaranteed. If the team drafts a right tackle, or elects to move OG Kyle Long back to tackle, they could get out of Massie's deal after just a one-year experiment.
