Anybody caught up with who the three starting linebackers will be once the season starts should probably let that go, because it really doesn't matter.
Lance Briggs, D.J. Williams, Jon Bostic and Shea McClellin will all see significant time on the field depending on the situation.
Adam Jahns from the Chicago Sun-Times brought up some very accurate scenarios.
Briggs will be entrenched at his usual spot, but Bostic will see time with Williams on short-yardage and first-down scenarios. Bostic will see a lot of time in the nickel package, with Williams in the base, while McClellin will be in on blitzing and pass-rushing situations.
This means Briggs will be the leader in snaps, but the other three will see a substantial amount of time on the field.
