Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune believes one of the top offseason goals for the Bears will be to shake up the depth chart at running back.
Biggs mentions that G Kyle Long‘s situation is worth keeping an eye on in the coming months, as the Bears could consider approaching him about a restructured contract.
While the Bears are clearly looking to upgrade the kicker position, Biggs says veteran Matt Bryant is unlikely to be an option unless they pair him with a punter, he’s probably not going to land in Chicago.
Lions GM Bob Quinn said at a recent season-ticket holders meeting that “the tight end position is definitely a priority for us” to upgrade this offseason.
“This is a position of need,” Quinn said, via the Detroit Free Press. “We know that.”
- Vanderbilt announced Wednesday that they’ve hired Lions assistant Devin Fitzsimmons as their new special teams coach.
