Bears coach Matt Nagy says Chicago ‘certainly’ has enough offensive pieces
The Chicago Bears spent most of this NFL offseason erasing most of last year’s mistakes. More importantly, they have managed to secure a bevy of weapons to the offensive side of the ball.
As a result, there is a newfound sense of optimism in Chicago. According to Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times, even head coach Matt Nagy is confident the Bears have more than enough pieces to be productive on offense.
“We certainly have enough — without a doubt,” Nagy said. “You’re at a point right now where there [are] really good numbers in regards to all the positions. Whether it’s the running-back position, the tight-end position, wide receiver and then the depth at O-line, we’re in a really good spot. That was the goal going into free agency, going into the draft. I feel like we accomplished that.”
Running back Jordan Howard said at the start of the offseason that all quarterback Mitch Trubisky needed was some weapons on offense. Needless to say, the team has since answered his prayers.
Chicago kicked things off with the signing of former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson. The former Pro Bowler is a proven No. 1 option when healthy and provides plenty of balance to Chicago’s run-heavy approach behind Howard. Robinson has already acknowledged that his job is to make things easier for the young Trubisky.
The Bears also managed to bring in former Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton, who played an integral role in their Super Bowl run last season. Meanwhile, there is also plenty of optimism surrounding wide receiver Kevin White. The former first-rounder has endured an injury-riddled start to his career. However, he could be a promising secondary option in the passing game if he can stay healthy.
