Who are some safeties to watch for in the Hall of Fame game for the Chicago Bears?

Matt Nagy has already announced that the starters will not be playing in the Hall of Fame game. With the fifth preseason game in comparison to four, it is a good chance to get bottom level roster players a chance to see the field.

Eddie Jackson and Adrian Amos are not going to see the field at all. This leaves four true safeties on the roster. The team is likely to deploy them in two groups.  They may mix and match in the back end, but there is a chance that the second string duo plays the first half while the third stringers play the second half.

Deiondre’ Hall and Deon Bush

Hall and Bush are listed as the second duo. Bush has been making waves in camp, and Vic Fangio has talked about getting him on the field as the third safety in some packages.

With the extra playing time in this game he has a great chance to show us what he has been showing Fangio in practice. For Bush you are looking for versatility and familiarity in man coverage, as that would be what he sees a lot of in dime.

For Hall, you have a player who seems to flop between cornerback and safety every week. Does he stay at safety, and how does he look with an extended look that we hardly get when it comes to Hall.

Nick Orr and DeAndre Houston-Carson

Houston-Carson running third team is not a good development so far. He is going to play specifically in the FS role next to Nick Orr. Avoiding giving up big plays and keeping things in front of him will go a long way in determining his longterm roster value.

As for Orr, he is a down hill tackler. We need to see consistency from him in that regard.
