Robert Quinn was supposed to solve some issues for the Bears' pass rush when they signed him in 2020. Instead, he all but disappeared out on the field.
With a talented trio in David Montgomery, Damien Williams and Tarik Cohen, the Bears run game could be special if the offensive line comes together as the team hopes.

Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney are locked into the top two spots at wide receiver. The competition behind them, however, will be fierce throughout training camp and the preseason.
