1. The quarterback situation behind Cutler is muddled at best
He may still be on the roster right now, but Brett Basanez doesn't have a chance to make the team this year and might not even have to pack his bags for training camp if the Bears do indeed bring in an experienced passer.
2. The scouting reports on Wright appear to be accurate
3. The receivers are set and won't get any reinforcements
Don't look for the Bears to add a veteran pass catcher, despite the recent rumors about former Martz disciple Mike Furrey, and if you're wondering whether one of the wideouts at rookie minicamp made a name for himself, wonder no more – they were all pretty bad.
4. The vet corners behind Tillman and Bowman better step it up
5. The undrafted rookie free agent to watch is Minor
At the very least, Minor deserves a spot on the practice squad, and just like Bell a year ago, that means he's an injury or two away from being a big part of the game plan – Chicago is making more of an effort to splits carries this year, too.
