5 underrated Cleveland Browns that Chicago Bears must account for
4. Greg Newsome
Another player the Cleveland Browns added this offseason might be helping this defense take the needed step forward. Many fans in Chicago know Greg Newsome from his days with Northwestern. He was the first NW underclassman to get drafted. Newsome showed why, as he hit the field early and has impressed.
Newsome has started both games and played opposite of Denzel Ward. Through two weeks, he is one of the least targeted cornerbacks in the NFL. Considering Ward is across from him, and teams are choosing to attack Ward over Newsome is very telling.
Newsome has it all. He has size, speed, smarts and is in the suitable scheme for his skill set. The Browns have moved Ward around to follow receivers if needed, but we are not sure if that means he would follow Darnell Mooney or Allen Robinson.
Still, whether it be Mooney or Robinson as the matchup for Newsome, the Bears have to challenge him in ways that other teams have not. Make the rookie prove it to you.
