How does a former Pro Bowl cornerback fly under the radar?  After an interception-less season in 2014, Jennings is in need of a major bounceback season.  His fellow former Pro Bowl running mate Charles Tillman is gone, off to Carolina for a reunion with Ron Rivera.  His other fellow cornerback Kyle Fuller is getting all of the headlines.  Meanwhile, Jennings flies under the radar.

A lot of focus on the Bears defense has been on the front seven, but there are a lot of questions on the back end as well.  The secondary can only get so much better with an improved pass rush that we can expect from Vic Fangio’s group.

After Kyle Fuller had a strong start in his rookie season, he dropped off dramatically.  He gutted it out and played through injuries, which could explain why his play tailed off.  So what was Jennings’ excuse?

The Bears brought in veteran Allen Ball to compete for time in the secondary.  Last season, the Bears were ready to move Jennings to the slot corner spot to allow Kyle Fuller to play on the outside.  With Tillman now gone, does Jennings move back to the outside full time or does he slide inside on nickel situations when Ball could see reps?
