Bears | R. Johnson a Promising Project

Larry Mayer, of, reports Chicago Bears tight ends coach Rob Boras is intrigued by TE Ron Johnson, a converted wide receiver turned tight end. "Ron Johnson is the interesting one, because is he a fifth wide receiver or a third or fourth tight end? He's the one long term who can probably be the guy that gives us the most flexibility offensively," Boras said. "He challenges defenses. How do they defend us? Is he a wide receiver or a tight end? How we use him and what we ask him to do, it's going to be important to give him a chance to succeed. He's going to challenge for playing time. In what role is still to be determined. But it's pretty exciting what he could offer us."
