Bears vs. Bills: Roy Williams and the Chicago Bears' Wide Receiver Battle

The Chicago Bears kick off their preseason schedule on the lakefront this Saturday against the Buffalo Bills.

The Bears have had their fair share of camp controversy this shortened offseason and one of the major storylines that has come out of Bourbonnais is the battle for the top wide-receiver spot on the roster.

Johnny Knox led the Bears in yards and catches last season and seemed to take a big step in development in his first year in the complex Mike Martz offense.

Roy Williams was signed this offseason to compete for starting time with the other wide receivers and while he is a veteran of the Martz offense, he has put up sub par numbers the past few seasons while playing for the Dallas Cowboys.

The Bears recently released their most updated depth chart and Williams had taken Knox's starting spot as the receiver opposite Devin Hester.

This makes for an interesting battle the rest of the preseason that will have Knox trying to win his starting job back while Williams works to keep his.

This slideshow will cover what we should look for during the preseason game on Saturday and who the right player for the job is.
