Starters announced on Defense going into training camp.

Bowman and Vasher - 2 CBs
Payne - SS
Manning - FS

What has happened to Corey Graham ? I thought he was nailed on to play Free Safety. I like Daniel Manning but moving him back to Safety is a mistake he has played there before and makes too many mistakes in coverage.

If the D-line don't get pressure the Secondary will really get burnt deep.

Yeah i am a bit worried. Manning is Lovie's pet project and we all know how stubborn he can be with certain players. Manning has shown no ability to play FS. You need to be able to read the game extremely well to play FS well, Manning makes really bad reads and bites far too often.

I am not happy with Manning at FS either. however, I reckon that once Tillman is healthy, Graham will start at FS. Manning is very poor in coverage.

On the field he would be a very solid signing, he has progressed into quite a good receiver. However, he has a very dodgy track record off the field. I would rather see how the current bunch do in Tc and Pre-season before taking a risk on a guy like Jones.

Well Chicago has added Marcus freeman to the non football injury list for being overweight... Good to see his making the effort to clean up his bad rep. shame really looked a talented player he is blaming family issues but to be honest if you make a living from your body you need to look after it no matter what, it's your livelihood...

Urlacher says this is the best Bears team he's ever been on.

Greg Olsen replaces Desmond Clark as starter.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...4679677.column

That makes Clark the only Bears veteran to lose his starting designation without really getting the chance to keep it. This isn't just a guy being phased out in a process that happens at every NFL training camp, it's the first Bears tight end since Mike Ditka to post three straight 40-catch seasons having his name lowered on the depth chart
