Senior writer Larry Mayer identifies five players to watch as the Bears kick off the third and final phase of their offseason program Monday by conducting the first of 10 OTA practices.
The Bears on Friday signed second-round draft pick Adam Shaheen, a tight end from Division II Ashland University, to a four-year contract.
Vic Fangio is convinced that Leonard Floyd will make a giant leap in his second NFL season if Floyd can avoid the nagging injuries that hampered him as a rookie.
The Bears hope that running back Tarik Cohen and safety Eddie Jackson contribute on their respective sides of the ball as rookies. But the fourth-round picks also could make an impact returning punts.
