Chicago Bears Roster Anaylsis: Will Brandon Hardin Make the Roster?

Phil Emery has a strategy as the general manager of the Chicago Bears that comes from his background as a strength and conditioning coach rather than in-game football background.  Emery is unapologetic about drafting the best athlete available rather than drafting the best player available and in the last two drafts that has been evident.  Shea McClellin, Brandon Hardin, Evan Rodriguez...

Chicago Bears Training Camp Position Battles: Safeties

How will Craig Steltz factor in to a depleted safety rotation? The mix at safety is always interesting for the Bears.

Brandon Hardin is the most recent Bear to go down with an injury. Following Saturday’s performance by the starting unit, Bears fans everywhere should be exhaling a huge sigh of relief this week.
