The Bears released their first depth chart of the year, and it lists a couple of surprising starters.

Who will end up starting alongside Lance Briggs at linebacker?

Who will end up starting alongside Lance Briggs at linebacker?

As it stands right now the Chicago Bears only have one of their starting linebacker spots filled. The middle and the strong side are up for grabs. Whom do you think ends up starting at those spots? Last season the Chicago Bears had two rookie linebackers gain valuable experience. Neither played very well, but they were thrown into the fire nonetheless. This year the Bears elected to stay away from the position in the draft, but they still ended up getting a new 1st rounder at the position when Shea McClellin moved from his defensive end spot.

Lance Briggs says he’s comfortable with Tucker, Herring

BOURBONNAIS — Lance Briggs was disappointed to be taken in the third round of the 2003 draft, but he soon found himself in the ultimate comfort zone with the Bears: playing next to Brian Urlacher at the peak of his career and — a year later — playing for the right coach in Lovie Smith, who would put him in the right spot in the right defense. The seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker probably never will be in that situation again — neither personally nor...

Lance Briggs wants to retire a Bear

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- For all the changes made on the defensive side of the ball, the key to the unit’s overall success might hinge on the health of 12-year veteran linebacker Lance Briggs. The linchpin of the defense, Briggs started strong in 2013, but ended up appearing in a career-low nine games because of a shoulder injury that kept him on the inactive list for two straight months.  One of the best linebackers in franchise history, Briggs was voted to seven straight Pro Bowls from 2005-2011 where he developed the reputation as one of the hardest hitting linebackers in the league.

Optimistic Lance Briggs wants to retire in Bears uniform

BOURBONNAIS — Never known as a workout warrior, Lance Briggs is stepping up his weight-room routine this season. ‘‘When I was younger, I would work out three days, take a day off; work out four, take a day off; work out one day, take a day off,’’ Briggs said. ‘‘Now it’s five days. I’m consistently hitting two-a-days through camp.’’ The intensified regimen is a concession to age and reality. At 33, with the wear-and-tear of 11 seasons with the...
