The Chicago Bears face some tought decisions following the 2013 season with 3/4 of their secondary playing for new contracts, writes John Mullin of CSNChicago.com. Cornerbacks Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman , as well as safety Major Wright are in the final year of their contracts, and the Bears will look to see how this season plays out and take it from there. All are coming off pretty good years - Jennings and Tillman made the Pro Bowl, and Wright, along with fellow safety Chris Conte played well together. It's time to start thinking about 2014, and the team hopefully can turn to cornerback Brandon Hardin out of Oregon State, drafted in the 3rd round in 2012. While a CB in college, the 6-foot-3, 217 lb. Hardin is listed as a safety on the roster. He missed his senior and rookie seasons with injuries, but the hope is to cash in on their investment soon. Mullin writes: 'Zackary Bowman was brought back last season after a brief stint in Minnesota. Bowman has been a minor enigma, possessed of the physical tools for the position and with a solid get-better attitude. But the consistency has been lacking, consigning him to special teams and intermittent use.'
