Bears' Kevin White: Participating in voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (leg) was on the field Tuesday for the start of the Bears' voluntary offseason program, Adam Jahns of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The No. 7 overall pick from the 2015 draft has played only four regular-season games through two years, first missing his entire rookie campaign with a broken right tibia, and then sitting out the final 12 games of last season due to a broken fibula in the same leg. He did lead the Bears with 19 receptions and 35 targets at the time of last year's injury, comfortably outpacing free-agent departure Alshon Jeffery in both categories. While the Bears have a high-upside duo in the form of White and 2016 breakout star Cameron Meredith, concerns regarding injuries and depth motivated the signings of Markus Wheaton and Kendall Wright in the offseason. The team might also consider adding more talent via the draft, which would lead to ample competition for targets in an offense that doesn't figure to produce big passing stats. Even with some obstacles in his way -- including the possibility new quarterback Mike Glennon will disappoint -- White has the physical tools to emerge as a bonafide No. 1 receiver. It sounds as if he's close to full strength, if not all the way there, for the start of the offseason program.

Bears' Bryce Callahan: Signs tender with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (hamstring) signed his exclusive rights one-year tender with Chicago, Matt Eurich of CBS Sports reports.

Callahan played in only 11 games in 2016 but he recorded 32 tackles and five passes defensed as a depth corner. He'll likely be a backup corner once again in 2017, but he could see an increased role with the defense in what will be his third NFL season.

Bears' Kyle Fuller: May have to fight for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fuller (knee) may not be on Chicago's Week 1 roster, Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Selected 14th overall in the 2014 draft, Fuller appeared to be on his way to stardom when he recorded 64 tackles, four interceptions and three forced fumbles as a rookie. He took a major step back in 2015 -- both statistically and in terms of his work in coverage -- and then missed the entire 2016 season after having arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-August. He was expected to return from the surgery at some point during the season, and his failure to do so seemed to draw the ire of Chicago's coaching staff, with head coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio both subtly questioning the cornerback's desire to play. Drafted by Chicago's previous front office regime, Fuller will have to re-prove himself during offseason workouts and training camp to avoid being released or traded before the upcoming season. Bears general manager Ryan Pace did say the team discussed the possibility of moving Fuller to safety, but there aren't any plans to move forward with a position change. The 25-year-old likely will have to compete for playing time at cornerback amongst a position group that added Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper in the offseason.

Bears' Sam Acho: Re-signed by Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acho was re-signed to a one-year contract by the Bears on Saturday, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Acho has spent the past two seasons in Chicago where he has notched 66 tackles (48 solo), one sack, and two forced fumbles in 31 games following a four-year stint with the Cardinals. He figures to once again provide depth for the Bears' linebacker unit, while Pernell McPhee, Leonard Floyd, and Lamarr Houston figure to compete for the starting roles on the outside.
