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.

David Bass, DE, 24

2014 Season

More from Bear Goggles On

Out of eight games, David Bass started one, making 10 total tackles, six of which were solo and four assists and one forced fumble. He was part of practice squad until Nov. 3, 2014, and replaced Lamarr Houston LE who was on I.R. due to a knee injury.


During his 2013, his rookie season, he had one start out of 12 games with 20.5 tackles including one sack and 2.5 TFLs with one INT, which was returned 24 yards for a touchdown. He is signed with the Bears through 2016.

2015 Outlook

Many fans know that Bass has the explosive speed and the physical talent that a 3-4 front demands. With this new approach, Bass should be able to show his versatility, along with getting more interceptions and forced fumbles.
