Chicago Bears: 5 Questions Heading into Training

Bears have quantity but do they have quality at safety?

Last season was a disaster at safety for the Bears. Chris Conte was beaten deep time and time again and Major Wright was no better underneath. General manager Phil Emery went out and brought in a bunch of safeties but does this team still have two viable starters? Brock Vereen was an absolute steal in the fourth round. He has a high football I.Q. and great instincts to play the position...
