1. Kyle Long- One of the best offseason moves the Bears made was moving Long back from tackle to guard. Long was a good right tackle, but he’s an elite right guard. While the Bears will take a step down in talent from Long to Massie at tackle, the improvement they will make at guard with the return of Long far outweighs the drop at tackle. Long should return to his All-Pro level this season.
2. Ted Larsen- Larsen has bounced around during his NFL career. The Bears are now his fourth team after he spent the last two seasons in Arizona. Larsen did start 26 games for the Cardinals the last two seasons but graded out poorly. The Bears are hoping Larsen can push for a starting job at either center or left guard, but if he doesn’t, he’ll settle in behind Long.
