Bears | Three locks at WR, open after that

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 08:18:40 -0700

Chicago Bears WRs Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Earl Bennett are locks for the 53-man roster, but after that it is wide open. WRs Joe Anderson and Eric Weems might lock up a fourth receiver job, and could be battling each other since they are each solid on special teams. WR Devin Aromashodu is in the mix for a job, and then there is seventh-round pick Marquess Wilson and WR Devin Hester, who is more known for his prowess as a return man. The team is likely to keep five receivers plus Hester.

Bears | Joe Anderson a good bet to stick

Mon, 15 Jul 2013 10:11:57 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Joe Anderson appears to be the most prominent of a group of receivers vying for the final two or three spots for the position on the team's 53-man roster. He can play special teams, and QB Jay Cutler has praised him. WR Eric Weems was signed last year to play on special teams, but he contributed little on offense, and that doesn't seem likely to change.
