Chicago Bears Training Camp Rumblings: Safety
How have the Chicago Bears safeties looked during the first week of training camp?
With the Chicago Bears getting an off day it was a good chance to recoup and look back at some of the players who have made noise during the first week in camp. It is important to note that while momentum may be trending in some players direction, that it is still week one, and plenty can happen.
Adrian Amos has been the PFF darling, but early reports are that he still lacks some of the ball skills to be a difference maker. Time will tell, but there has not been much buzz around him in terms of a contract extension as well, which should be on the Bears list of things to do.
Eddie Jackson has been excellent so far. He has taken command as the leader in the back end and has been vocal about this defense taking a huge step forward next season.
Deon Bush has had his stock on the way up going back to OTAs when Vic Fangio gave him a shoutout. Now, he has taken the momentum into camp. Bush has been all over the place making key hits and deflecting passes away.
While it is too early say what, the team does have intentions to get him a role this season. He will likely start out as a dime defensive back, but optimism around his long term status at safety could be looked at as well.
Nick Orr, DeAndre Houston-Carson, Deiondre Hall
None of the three have stood out so far in camp. In an open competition, none have separated from the pack. However, it is worth noting that Hall is officially going to be a cornerback and will be listed with them moving forward.
