The Bears have an interesting secondary. The corners are all very good but the safeties are still a little less than desirable.
It's a scary thought for opposing offenses to think Tim Jennings will line up at the nickel. Jennings has been to two straight Pro Bowls and has 13 interceptions over the past two years.
Charles Tillman is still a very good corner as long as he stays healthy and first-round pick Kyle Fuller is a stud. Kelvin Hayden and Sherrick McManis are very good backups and special teams players. It's interesting to think last year's starting nickel Isaiah Frey might be at the bottom of the depth chart.
Now let's look at the safeties. The Bears certainly brought in quantity but does it amount to quality?
Brock Vereen will be a very good football player in this league. He has the skills, football I.Q. and natural instincts to succeed. The question is, can he do it right away?
Ryan Mundy has been an average at best starting safety meaning he's a slight upgrade over Major Wright but it's not a huge leap.
Chris Conte and M.D. Jennings probably shouldn't be starters in the NFL ever again and nobody knows what Adrian Wilson has left coming off a torn Achilles.
Guys like Craig Steltz and Danny McCray are a part of this group but aren't really much more than players fighting for a final roster spot.
If Vereen can prove he's ready to go right away and Mundy shows he's ready to take the next step then the future looks brighter but for now there's still a ton of uncertainty.
