Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace has quite a rebuilding project on his hands. In the next phase of our Chicago Bears Roster Review, we look at the players who are currently on the Bears roster. We’ll look back at their 2014 season and look ahead to how they might fit into the team’s plans in 2015.

2014 Season

Last year was Mundy’s first as a starting safety for the Bears, after being a fill-in for the previous five seasons. During the course of this season, he made 103 tackles, 75 of these on his own, 28 of them were assisted and one sack. He had four interceptions, where he ran for 52 yards and made one touchdown.  This season he had a 34 percent gain in tackling from the previous season with the New York Giants.


Mundy played his seventh season with the Bears, after playing the 2013 season with the New York Giants and 2009-2013 for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In the 2008 draft, he was signed with the Steelers in the sixth round.

2015 Outlook

Mundy is in a contract year. He needs to prove his worth. He’s an average safety, but for the Bears, he’s the top guy, which is contributes to the team’s decline. This situation is no longer a problem for Pace, who has now signed a new safety, Antrel Rolle. This addition is good news for Mundy since they played together for the Giants. Hopefully, by reuniting with Rolle and if Mundy can keep up the momentum he gained this past season, he can show his bosses and the fans what kind of safety he can truly be.
