The Bears thought that the competition the receivers corp went through in the off season went well but now, two game into the preseason, and the Bears receiving corp is anything but solid. While it is a given that Brandon Marshall is the #1 receiver, everything gets iffy after that. Receiver Earl Bennett suffered his second concussion August 2nd, just eight months after his last severe concussion. That injury has opened up the competition for the 2nd thru 6th receivers.,
Rookie receiver Marquess Wilson has impressed the coaches enough to keep him on the roster even though he brings little else to the Special Teams squad where most rookies make or break their career. Veteran Eric Weems can also make an impact on Special Teams while free agent receiver Devin Aromashodu and QB Jay Cutler had a good relationship when Aromashodu last played with the Bears although he is still trying to figure out the new Bears offense.
The Bears face the Oakland Raiders for their third preseason game August 28th. Tickets are still available.
