The Chicago Bears are not going to make many more moves to their 2024 roster before the start of training camp. So, the down period presents a chance to review where the roster stands. What does the safety depth chart look like heading into the dead of the offseason?

FS. Kevin Byard

Whether Byard is the number one or Brisker, they both have their roles. The good thing about Byard is that he brings more box versatility than Eddie Jackson. Still, when it comes down to it, the Bears will play Byard in the single high spot much more than Brisker. 

SS. Jaquan Brisker

As we noted, it is not that Brisker is the number two, but more that he will align in the box more often than Kevin Byard. His first season brought intense promise, but his second season had too many injuries. Now, we are on to year three. 

3. Jonathan Owens 

The Bears signed Owens this offseason. He will primarily be the backup box safety, but the team also felt a need to sign him after seeing Elijah Hicks get an extended look. 

4. Elijah Hicks 

Hicks is a former seventh-round pick from the 2022 NFL draft. He will stick around due to special teams play, but his play on defense showed he is not really an NFL contributor. 

5. Quindell Johnson

Quindell Johnson was picked up off of waivers last offseason. He saw just 106 special teams snaps and 35 defensive snaps. 

6. Adrian Colbert 

Colbert spent most of the year on the practice squad, but did suit up for two games. 

7. Tarvarius Moore

Moore spent last year on the Chicago Bears practice squad after spending most of his career with the San Francisco 49ers. 

8. Douglas Coleman 

Douglas Coleman has bounced around the NFL and is mostly viewed as a training camp depth player.
