I have this philosophy that you don’t quit one job until you have another one lined up. I feel like the Bears didn’t adhere to that idea when they jettisoned Martellus Bennett to the Patriots and were left with the oft-injured Zach Miller and not much else behind him at tight end.
Zach Miller had a breakout campaign in 2015, but it’s hard to put faith in a guy who hadn’t played a snap the previous three seasons due to season-ending injuries. Miller has the speed and hands to excel at tight end, but he’s got to stay healthy.
Besides Miller, the Bears have Greg Scruggs, a converted defensive end who will serve primarily as a blocker. The Bears added Logan Paulsen, cut by the Washington Redskins after six seasons. Paulsen amassed 79 catches for 801 yards and 6 TD’s in his career. That doesn’t inspire a ton of confidence.
