The Chicago Bears and Ryan Pace have built a winner by pairing veterans with young talent.
The Chicago Bears have added speed threat Ted Ginn Jr.to the roster. The Chicago Bears lack a certain amount of speed, but Ryan Pace is doing something that is being overlooked, and it’s smart. He is mixing his young talent with his old talent.
The Chicago Bears now have a competition at quarterback with Mitch Trubisky and Nick Foles. At wide receiver, the Bears already had Allen Robinson showing Javon Wims, Riley Ridley, and Anthony Miller the ropes as a route runner. Now, Ted Ginn Jr.will be able to show Darnell Mooney how to use is speed correctly in and out of the slot.
The Chicago Bears added Robert Quinn to replace Leonard Floyd, while also drafting Trevis Gipson in the fifth round this year in the 2020 NFL draft. Gipson will not learn from just one top tier pass rusher but two of them in Khalil Mack and Quinn.
The Cornerbacks will have some vets to learn from as well. Jaylon Johnson and Kindle Vildor will get to learn from Kyle Fuller. Buster Skrine will be in a position to show Kindle Vildor and also continue to train Duke Shelley in the slot. Having a veteran presence is a huge advantage and is one of the principals founded by coach Bill Parcells.
Danny Trevathan was resigned over Nick Kwiatkowski, which will continue the veteran to young riser theory. The Offensive line may have regressed last year but, the Chicago Bears will have veterans Charles Leno, Bobbie Massi, and Cody Whitehair to train on the outside and the interior.
With two seventh-round offensive linemen, the Chicago Bears are well equipped to have a steady veteran presence to show them te ropes. Ryan Pace has followed a few metrics from the hall of fame coach Bill Parcells while adding talent from the future hall of fame coach Sean Payton‘s team.
Ryan Pace has vastly changed his ways since entering the league. With the roster set, only time will tell if this team is ready for a big playoff push this year. If not, it could be a long road ahead.
