Bears' Adam Shaheen: Second-round pick for Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears selected Shaheen in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 45th overall.

Shaheen played at a small school (Ashland) but is an extremely large tight end at 6-foot-6, 278 pounds. That hulking build could lead one to mistake Shaheen for a lumbering blocker rather than a dangerous pass catcher, but he's very much the latter. Shaheen was unstoppable at Ashland, and at the Combine he showed he has the athleticism for it to translate to the NFL. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.79 seconds at the Combine, adding a 121-inch broad jump and 7.09-second three-cone drill. Those are good numbers in a vacuum, but they're incredible for a 278-pound tight end. While he may need a year or two to develop out of such a low level of competition, Shaheen has the tools to dominate by his third year.

Bears' Mike Glennon: Won't face immediate competition from Trubisky
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears general manager Ryan Pace said No. 2 overall selection Mitch Trubisky will not push Glennon for the starting job out of the gates, Rich Campbell and Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune report. "Mike Glennon is our starting quarterback," said Pace. "There's no quarterback competition when Mitch gets here. Glennon is our starting quarterback. We'll focus on Mitch's development and Mike Glennon winning games for the Chicago Bears."

While this sentiment perhaps could change if Trubisky impresses during training camp and the preseason, it does make sense that the Bears want him to spend a year waiting in the wings, as he only started 13 games at the University of North Carolina. Chicago also made a significant investment this offseason in Glennon, who signed a three-year, $45 million contract that includes $18.5 million guaranteed. The team seemingly hopes to keep Trubisky on the bench for his entire rookie campaign, but the plan could change in a hurry if Glennon struggles early in the season and it becomes clear the Bears don't have any shot of making the playoffs.

Bears' Mitchell Trubisky: Drafted by Chicago in trade up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears selected Trubisky in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, second overall.

The Bears traded up from the third pick, paying to switch picks with the 49ers. It's arguably a strange move generally, but particularly difficult to rationalize after signing Mike Glennon for $15 million per year over three years, all but naming Glennon the starter in the process. Trubisky (6-foot-2, 222 pounds) was a one-year starter in a system that didn't ask him to make NFL-type reads, but he is a superb athlete with a good arm who has the raw tools to develop into a standout starter in the NFL. After throwing for 3,748 yards (8.4 YPA), 30 touchdowns and six interceptions in 2016, Trubisky will evidently sit for a while before the Bears hand him the keys to their starting role. When he does see the field, Trubisky's standout rushing skills could give him a decent floor even as he develops as a passer.

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.
