Da Bears Beat looks to identify roles for the glut of linebackers on the Bears roster.

Speaking of Bears linebackers, Shea McClellin isn’t putting any added pressure on himself.  OK, if he’s not, I am.  It’s put up or shut up time, Shea.

"“I’m just going to take it as another year,” McClellin said. “I’ll just do the best that I can, that’s all I can do. Nothing else matters, I’ll do what I can to help the team. I don’t really feel the pressure; pressure comes when you’re not prepared, so I think we’ll be all right.”"

After honing his skills in San Diego, Eddie Royal gives the Bears a weapon in the slot:

"“I can still see him playing outside – he still looks like the guy we had in Denver,” Gase said. “[But] suddenly, we throw him in the slot and it’s like, ‘Wow, he’s developed so much.’" considers the Bears signing Adam Gase as a potentially surprising move that could lead to helping Jay Cutler turn things around:

"This move certainly qualifies as “unexpected,” given that many thought Gase would have a strong shot at the vacancy left by John Fox’s “mutual” split with the Broncos, which was itself a surprising development. Gase’s presumed ascent in Denver … didn’t happen. Naturally, Fox hired Gase to lead his offense in Chicago. Can the coordinator revive Cutler’s game to the point that the Bears can make noise in the NFC North? Can he, for lack of a more creative phrase, get Cutler to care more?"
