Bears | Prioritize FG Accuracy for Kickers

Larry Mayer, of ChicagoBears.com, reports Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said the club has prioritized field goal accuracy with their place kicker ahead of kickoff ability. "The main thing for a field goal kicker is to make field goals, particularly once you're inside the 40," Angelo said. "That's the No. 1 critical trait that you look for. Very few kickers are going to be able to do both. You have to declare what you want at that position and we want a guy that can make the field goals." The club has PKs Doug Brien, Paul Edinger, Nick Setta, Tyler Jones and Nick Novak competing for the place-kicking duties this year.
