As the Chicago Bears enter training camp, quite a few players are just hoping to have jobs when the regular season opens.

While some interesting starting jobs are on the line, this is going to focus on the players who are fighting for any job. These guys are just trying to make the squad anyway they can.

Perhaps the most interesting battles will be within the Bears offense. Chicago enters training camp with 25 running backs, tight ends and wide receivers. It's possible that more than half of the players at those positions won't make the team.

While the offensive line seems mostly set, a few players could go one way or the other there as well.

Defensively, we know most of the starters and the players who will make the roster. 

The Bears have 16 defensive linemen, and eight seem to be locks to make the roster. There might be one linebacker spot up for grabs and a couple of spots in the secondary, which are likely going to come down to who can play special teams.

Three weeks ago, I did a story specifying the veterans who may be in trouble. This will focus more on the fringe players—guys who may have never played in the NFL before or may never play again.
