Who are the five Chicago Bears players with the most pressure on them entering training camp?
With the start of Chicago Bears training camp, the pressure is on every player. Every player comes in with a clean slate and a chance to start something new. Therefore, their job is on the line, and a chance for a career year is also at stake. However, these five players have a lot more on the line entering the 2018 NFL season.
5. Kevin White
We all know why Kevin White has more pressure than anybody else. A former top ten pick, the word bust is starting to get loud around the name Kevin White. Still, after the fact that White has 21 receptions in his first three seasons, there is still a reason that he is not labeled a complete bust yet. There is a reason for him to prove himself.
Almost every issue surrounding White has been injury related. He has not been on the field enough to prove that he does not belong there. There is always a chance in which he stays healthy. Who knows.
At this point even he was healthy, he would enter camp as a number four receiver on the depth chart. He would have to earn snaps and playing time. Still, it has been done before.
Last season Kyle Fuller was denied his fifth-year option. He started the season behind Marcus Cooper. From there, he earned starter snaps and obviously earned a starting job as well. We all know the story from there.
Fuller had more on the field experience than White to earn his extension this offseason. Still, if White showed flashes and earned playing time, he could start to earn some actual money on the market this offseason. It will be solely on him now though, as nothing will be given to him.
