Chicago Bears Safety Depth Chart: Post OTAs
As the Chicago Bears get ready for training camp they will be setting their depth chart based on what they saw at OTAs. They will not commit to this depth chart, but this will be the start of the groupings and how the players will get their chances in training camp. From there, the competition will be on.
All positions will be competing, but what will the Chicago Bears safety depth chart look like when they head into training camp
1. Eddie Jackson
Eddie Jackson is the obvious top-dog on the unit. They are paying him the big money and hoping that Sean Desai is going to get the most out of Eddie Jackson.
2. Tashaun Gipson
Tashaun Gipson waited to see what his market was and found out the best spot was back In Chicago. He did get more money than last year, and rightfully so. It will be interesting to see how his role evolves in a Sean Desai defense.
3. Deon Bush
The Chicago Bears have used Bush as a dime linebacker who works in the box at times. He has been picked on in coverage in that role at times against tight ends though. Still, he has established himself as the third safety.
4. Jordan Lucas
Lucas opted out last year, but all indications were they signed him with the intention of making the roster. They brought him back this year, and he has great special teams upside, so they clearly are hoping for an impact from him.
5. Deandre Houston-Carson
DHC could very easily be ahead of Lucas on the depth chart, but the team has clearly been trying to move on from it, they just have not had the depth. With Lucas back, they may have someone ahead of them.
6. Marqui Christian
Christian missed almost all of 2020 but the Bears activated him for their playoff game last season. There is a muddle of players between Lucas, DHS, and Christian that will be sorted out in training camp.
