Training camp isn't for guys like Brandon Marshall, Jared Allen or Matt Forte. Those guys are focused and ready to go right away. They also know their role on this team and aren't concerned with anybody else behind them. 

Now, when you think about camp and the preseason you think about the last five guys in and the last five out. Who are the guys fighting to make a spot on the roster? Who are the players still fighting during the fourth preseason game while the starters are chilling with their pads off and fitted hats on? 

The Chicago Bears still have questions on special teams. Who is going to be the final receiver, third running back or last linebacker? Who are going to be the last depth players on the roster to contribute on special teams?
