Adrian AmosYes- Amos isn’t Ronnie Lott, but he’s the perfect complimentary defensive player that is going to play smart football and help teams win. He won’t ever be a playmaker, but he’s the type of player that would be an asset to any defense.
Harold Jones-QuarteyQuestionable- Jones-Quartey played well towards the end of last season, but has struggled this season. The Bears do not have another safety that has stepped up and the Bears secondary has been exposed because of it. His play needs to improve if he’s going to get back on Pace’s radar for the future.
Chris ProsinskiNo– Prosinski was brought in to play on special teams and is now playing safety because of the Bears’ lack of depth. He’s not good. He will be replaced as soon as possible.
Deon BushDoubtful– Bush is yet to play a down on defense. The coaching staff continually says he isn’t mentally ready. You have to wonder if he just isn’t the player the Bears were hoping he was and if he doesn’t get on the field soon, he might be the first rookie to lose a roster position.
DeAndre Houston-CarsonDoubtful– Houston-Carson was drafted to be a special teams’ ace but he hasn’t performed well this season. He has missed some blocks, a couple of tackles, and has had some costly penalties. He’s also a kick blocking specialist and hasn’t sniffed one yet this season. The jump from William & Mary to the NFL level is a big one and it might be too much for Houston-Carson. He’s only a rookie, but the early returns are ‘doubtful.’
