Chicago Bears Linebacker Ranked Dead Last

Chicago Bears- The Chicago Bears defense showed some promise in their first preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Bostic should be expected to start

As the Chicago Bears prepare to begin training camp, there have been rumblings about second-year linebacker Jon Bostic competing for a starting spot.

The 12 teams who made the postseason all finished in the top-18...
