With the signing of Tashaun Gipson and Jaylon Johnson, there are likely two new names in the Chicago Bears secondary in 2020. It is nice to get younger with Jaylon Johnson, but this is going to be a tougher offseason than most to jump right into the starting lineup.

What if it takes Johnson a week or two to get the hang of things? Would it be possible that Kevin Toliver, a veteran who knows the NFL is more ready to start in Week One? What if he never let go of that job?

For Gipson, you have Eddie Jackson with his third running mate in as many years. With Amos, the two had spent two consecutive years together. With Clinton-Dix, you had former teammates and friends. With Gipson, you have a different player with no offseason.

It is at least worth considering that the fit may be more complicated than most seasons.
