Chicago Bears General Manager Ryan Pace has had a busy two offseasons in Chicago. Pace came in after the Bears disastrous 2014 season, looked at the roster, and knew it needed massive changes. He got to work immediately and overturned almost half the roster in year one. In year two, he’s continued to put his stamp on the roster by leaving very few players from Phil Emery’s team.
As the Bears enter training camp for the 2016 season, they have plenty of positions settled, but there are plenty of position battles that will begin in training camp and potentially continue into the regular season. The Bears have plenty of rookies and new acquisitions that will figure into the mix and if they do well in August, the Bears could have less than ten players remaining on the roster that played under Phil Emery and Marc Trestman.
With all that in mind, here is a look at the 2016 Chicago Bears projected starters and primary back-ups at each position.
