and he talked about how excited he was for his 2019 free agents."As an assistant coach Sam Acho Jersey , Matt Nagy grew up under the Andy Reid learning tree, and Reid is one of the most forward thinking offensive minds of all time. Reid’s roots are squarely in the west coast offense, but he’s shown an ability to adapt and to learn other concepts to keep things fresh for his teams. Nagy’s first year running the offense with the Chicago Bears wasn’t record setting, but we saw innovation for the first time in a long time, and the groundwork was laid to what should be a breakout in 2019. Part of that breakout will center around the new faces his team added in free agency. This team will still only go as far as Mitchell Trubisky will take them, but with a new running back and a new play-maker (WR/KR/RB) joining Allen Robinson II, Tarik Cohen, Anthony Miller, Trey Burton, Taylor Gabriel, and for now, Jordan Howard, the offense has a multitude of weapons that defenses will need to scheme against. Nagy’s new tailback, former Seattle Seahawk Mike Davis, has never been the number one option, but he had a mini-breakout last year averaging a career high 4.6 yards per carry (514 yards). He also hauled in 34 receptions www.thebearslockerroom.com/authentic-devin-hester-jersey , and he did so while playing only 37% of the offensive snaps. He’s not a burner, but there’s a suddenness to his game that will add a dimension to the offense in 2019. “He was a guy that can make you miss between the tackles.” Nagy said from the NFL owners meetings on Tuesday. “He has that in him. We liked that. We thought that would be a good addition to our side of the ball on offense.” Adding a play-maker like Cordarrelle Patterson to the mix also has Nagy excited. Patterson is one of the best kick returners in the history of the NFL, but he’s going to have a versatile role all over the offense with the Bears. He only played about 20% of the offensive snaps last year for the Patriots, with another 16% on special teams, but he made the most of his 5.7 touches per game by returning kicks and lining up everywhere on offense. He racked up 76 all-purpose yards per game and 5 total touchdowns last year. Nagy also weighed in on his defense’s new safety and nickleback. The Bears didn’t re-sign Adrian Amos or Bryce Callahan, two popular and productive players, but they both moved on to big paydays with the Packers and Broncos respectively. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Buster Skrine will try to fill the shoes of those two players, but the Bears are confident they can do it. I don’t think it was a coincidence that Amos’ production picked up once he was paired with Eddie Jackson the last two seasons, so now that Clinton-Dix will slide into the role next to an All-Pro in Jackson, we’ll have to see if he can bounce back to his Pro Bowl form. I think Amos is a solid football player, and will be fine in Green Bay, but I also think Clinton-Dix is a good fit for the Bears defense. He’s a different type of safety, but with the way Chicago’s offense should be able to score points, Chicago will need a guy that can cover, and that’s where he has the edge over Amos.And speaking of covering, Nagy believes their new nickle can do that as well. That description reminds me of their old nickle corner Womens Danny Trevathan Jersey , Callahan, whom I do think is a better player. Part of the reason the Bears went with Skrine is his relative good health throughout his career. Callahan’s injury history had to be considered, and he’s still not cleared to workout and will probably miss minicamp for Denver.But Nagy and the Bears have moved on from 2018 and they expect their new faces to help them build off their 12 win, NFC North championship, and get even further this season.Which of these four do you think will make the biggest impact? The draft is getting closer and the draft visits are ramping up. Draft questions and more as the offseason continues to drag along." Latest NewsFrom The Desk Of...Chicago Bears Free Agency 2019Bears mailbag: Hope for Robbie Gould, drafting a running back and Aaron Rodgers’ rough weekNew,38commentsThe draft is getting closer and the draft visits are ramping up. Draft questions and more as the offseason continues to drag along.CDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:Bears mailbag: Hope for Robbie Gould, drafting a running back and Aaron Rodgers’ rough weekTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailPhoto by Al Messerschmidt/Getty ImagesThe 2019 NFL Draft is just 15 days away and while the Chicago Bears may not be slated to pick on the first night, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of draft questions. While the main focus is on running backs, the Bears still have five picks and will look to add more to their already deep roster.On top of that, news surfaced on Tuesday that the 49ers could be having issues coming to a long-term pact with kicker Robbie Gould, possibly leaving a slim chance that he returns to Chicago.We’ll address all of that and more in this week’s mailbag.I’m glad you asked.I actually put out a piece yesterday highlighting exactly who I think would be ideal and realistic fits for the Bears in this draft class. To keep it simple, here are my top five names.Miles Sanders (Penn State)Trayveon Williams (Texas A&M)Damien Harris (Alabama)Justice Hill (Oklahoma State)David Montgomery (Iowa State)In short, I feel like the Bears would have to trade up for Sanders or Montgomery. Sanders is the most ideal fit because of how well-rounded he is. Montgomery lacks explosion at the second level, but is also very well-rounded and is one of the more overlooked fits in this class.Williams, Harris and Hill are all likely to be around when the Bears pick and all make a lot of sense as well.It’s worth noting that the Bears have met multiple times with Sanders and Williams. Those meetings include top 30 visits and they’ve also worked out Sanders. All in all Cody Whitehair Jersey , the team has spent eight of their top 30 visits on running backs and met with 15 overall. It’s pretty clear they plan to not only draft one, but likely draft one somewhat early.Earlier Tuesday, it was reported by NBC Sports Bay Area that the 49ers were interested in kicker Stephen Gostkowski. Since that point, the Patriots re-signed him to a two-year, $8.5 million deal. Normally, I’d say that probably kills any chance at Gould being dealt, but I’m not sure that’s quite the case yet. Here’s what we know:Gould was not happy with the tag because he wanted a long-term deal, so he could move his family wherever he landed.Gould has been very vocal about his love for the Bears and the city of Chicago.General manager John Lynch said at the scouting combine that the team & the kicker’s camp were far apart and talks had all but died.With all of that in mind, I’d say that it’s no guarantee that Gould will actually sign his tag or do it any time soon. My guess is that for the right price (no clue what that would be), Lynch would be open to dealing him. I would assume that would need to be before or during the draft, so he could find a suitable replacement.I’m not sure that Bears general manager Ryan Pace is going to abandon his current kicking competition, to trade a draft pick for a 36-year-old kicker. It would likely have to be for a low round pick and maybe even a 2020 pick but even then, you’re talking about trading a pick, screwing a few tryout players out of a real chance to make the roster and paying Gould around $4-4.5 million per year.I’d say that all in all, the chances of a Gould reunion remain low, unless the 49ers rescind their current franchise tag on him.Admittedly so www.thebearslockerroom.com/authentic-jonathan-bullard-jersey , the deeper I dove into this 2019 running back class, the less impressed I was. I’m not going to say it’s a weak class, but I do think it’s a middle-heavy class, with a lot of questions in it.As head coach Matt Nagy talked about a few weeks back, it’s all about fit. Both for the team and these prospects. Not a lot of these prospects are good at everything and none of them (on paper) are elite talents. For me personally, I don’t have one first round grade, but I have 12 graded in the first four rounds and a total of 14 graded in rounds four through five.It’s going to be about how strong Pace’s and Nagy’s evaluations are of this class, especially when it comes to fit. The good news? They aren’t looking for a three-down back or a bell cow. That will help.Even so, I don’t think it would make much sense to bypass this class all together and wait for next year’s. You simply have to trust your evaluations if your Pace and not overdraft, even if that means not taking one until the fourth or fifth round.Also remember, even if they draft one in a few weeks, it doesn’t mean they can’t spend a higher pick on one next year if one of Mike Davis or their pending draft pick don’t work out.“It sounds to me like Rogers is making excuses about last year. Kind of odd he comes out with this story after all the stories about how huge egos destroyed the Packers. If he was that injured why continue to play especially after they were out of it? Sounds like excuses to me, what are your thoughts.” - Jerry Sternadel (via email)As most Bears fans are aware by now, Aaron Rodgers made headlines last week. Tyler Dunne wrote an excellent article detailing the fallout between the quarterback and his former head coach, Mike McCarthy.The premise of the piece was based on Rodgers’ reported ego and disdain for McCarthy. It’s excellent and I would suggest taking about 20 minutes out of your day to read it if you already haven’t.Since that point, Rodgers has come out and somewhat refuted most of the information in the article. The problem? The sources came from within the Packers’ organization whether it was scouts or former players (some of which attached their names to it). Also Womens Akiem Hicks Jersey , when Rodgers spoke about it, he didn’t exactly deny a lot of the information. He simply discredit Dunne and the outspoken sources in former tight end Jermichael Finley and receiver Greg Jennings.Since then, he has also come out and said that he played last year on a broken leg and sprained knee. Both of which were sustained on Roy Robertson-Harris’ sack that came in their Week 1 matchup. Now, I’m not going to say Rodgers was making excuses because I don’t believe that he was. I felt for most of the year that whatever happened on that play that caused Rodgers to miss close to a quarter in the season opener, hampered him for most of the season.What I do think it brings in question is the quarterback’s overall durability. This was the second year in a row in which he had a serious injury. Yes, he played all 16 games, but the year before he missed the majority of the year with a broken collarbone. At 35-years-old, you have to wonder if his body is breaking down after years of abuse. What is even more interesting is that the team just extending him and they can’t really get out from underneath his contract until the 2022 off-season. If Rodgers continues to break down and can’t stay healthy, this perceived Packers new-found “window” could close before it even opens. I would also question how well a fit between a young offensive-minded head coach with no NFL head coaching experience and a strong-willed quarterback like Rodgers will work out.Only time will tell, but I’d say there are more questions now than there was when the offseason first started in regards to the Packers.
