Marquess Wilson
News
With the Bears having traded Brandon Marshall to the Jets, third-year pro Marquess Wilson is the "logical choice" to replace him as a starting outside receiver, reports ESPN.com. But the 6-4, 184-pounder will need to make major progress this offseason for Chicago to feel comfortable starting him opposite Alshon Jeffery, the report said.

"He’ll need to add some bulk in the team’s conditioning program as he’s not considered a speedster capable of blowing past corners at the line of scrimmage," the website said. Wilson suffered a fractured clavicle in training camp last year, then returned to catch 17 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown in seven games.

The Bears, who added slot receiver Eddie Royal via free agency, figure to draft at least one wideout. Chicago owns the No. 7 pick overall.

Jay Cutler
News
New Bears coach John Fox called it "all an open competition" when asked if he could see a scenario in which quarterback Jay Cutler had to compete for the starting job, reports ESPN.com. Jimmy Clausen is Cutler's projected backup.

“I would say logically if you are looking at the depth chart and you are asking me for it two weeks before we can really get anything going, I’d say  be [Cutler would be] first on the depth chart, yeah,” Fox said.

“Obviously you’ve got to start somewhere and my experience in football and really anything is it’s not where you start the race it’s where you finish it. We have to start the race with some kind of lineup, and we have not discussed that in depth. We have not presented it to our players in depth. I think it’s important for them to see it maybe more than you guys. I’ve had guys who were third on the depth chart that by the time we started the opener were first. I can’t tell you what’s happening. If I could I’d be at some race track somewhere.”

Alshon Jeffery
News
Bears coach John Fox is changing the team's offseason conditioning program, and he thinks the tweaks will help wideout Alshon Jeffery, reports ESPN.com. Jeffery is the Bears' No. 1 receiver now that Brandon Marshall has been traded to the Jets.

The 25-year-old dealt with nagging hamstring problems last year.

“I really liked Alshon coming out [of college],” Fox said at the NFL owners' meetings. “One of the things I’d say is we had a lot of soft-tissue injuries last year as a football team. We’ve kind of changed philosophically in the weight room. I think you’ll see we’re going to do things a lot different from offseason conditioning, the approach to how we handle that. I don’t think we had a soft-tissue injury a year ago in Denver other than one particular guy.”

Jeffery caught 85 passes for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, his second straight 1,000-yard season.

“I think [the new conditioning approach] will help him,” Fox said. “There have been times in his career when he might have been a little bit overweight, but obviously a beast as far as size, and a guy we’re looking forward to getting to know better.”

Tim Jennings
News
Bears cornerback Tim Jennings underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his knee, according to a report from ESPN Chicago.

Early on Friday, Jennings posted a photo of himself on Twitter and made mention of a possible surgery, though that post was later deleted. The procedure isn't considered serious and won't have any lasting effects that would keep Jennings out of offseason activities.

Martellus Bennett
News
Marc Trestman lasted only two seasons as the Bears coach before losing his job. Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said on NFL Network on Friday that Trestman's demise in Chicago was plagued by his inability to control a locker room full of personalities.

"Trestman, I think, first off, the issue that he had, probably, was managing us all, all the different personalities," Bennett said. "There's a lot of big personalities (in the locker room). And I think, for a first-time head coach in the NFL, dealing with all the personalities that you have, I think that's hard when you got guys like me, you know, (Brandon) Marshall ... Lance Briggs on defense, (Charles) Tillman.

"There's so many guys with such outgoing personalities that managing those guys and bringing them all together is what a leader needs to do, you know? And that's one of the toughest things."

Although Trestman was fired in late December, he wasn't out of work for long, landing the job as the Ravens offensive coordinator after Gary Kubiak left to become the Broncos coach. Bennett believes Trestman will have success in his new role.

"Calling plays, he was excellent," Bennett said. "I think he's going to be an excellent coordinator for the Ravens.  Strategically, he was great. But on the field, guys just weren't executing.

"A lot of it comes back to the player preparation. If you're not preparing to a high level, then the coaches can only do so much; the game's not played on paper, it's played on grass. On paper, we look great. On grass, we looked bad."

Jimmy Clausen
News
New Bears coach John Fox called it "all an open competition" when asked if he could see a scenario in which quarterback Jay Cutler had to compete for the starting job, reports ESPN.com. Jimmy Clausen is Cutler's projected backup.

“I would say logically if you are looking at the depth chart and you are asking me for it two weeks before we can really get anything going, I’d say  be [Cutler would be] first on the depth chart, yeah,” Fox said.

“Obviously you’ve got to start somewhere and my experience in football and really anything is it’s not where you start the race it’s where you finish it. We have to start the race with some kind of lineup, and we have not discussed that in depth. We have not presented it to our players in depth. I think it’s important for them to see it maybe more than you guys. I’ve had guys who were third on the depth chart that by the time we started the opener were first. I can’t tell you what’s happening. If I could I’d be at some race track somewhere.”

"I think it's people that's going to accept me for who I am and see that it's a personality, not a character issue. So as we begin to build these relationships, you want to be able to be there for a while. Being a one-hit wonder or a rental definitely affects you emotionally.

"I don't want to go through that again. I want to take this opportunity and make the best out of it."

Marshall, who will turn 31 this month, was traded from Chicago to New York in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick. He is only the fourth NFL player i the last 20 years to be traded three or more times.

He also told reporters he's looking forward to working with Geno Smith, who he is already a little with, per the New York Daily News.

"This is pretty interesting because Geno and I, we started this weird relationship from the time he got drafted," Marshall said. "He's a Florida guy. My gym ... it's literally like three exits from him. We started this relationship, and it's pretty cool to see how it develops off the field.

"He has a drive and a passion that a lot of people don't see," Marshall said.
