The Chicago Tribune considers Kevin White's (leg) progress a "mystery."

Mike Glennon and coach John Fox both had positive things to say about White on Tuesday, but offered nothing in the way of specifics. Fox said earlier this month that White "looks very healthy." The oft-injured wideout is getting in at least some degree of participation in OTAs. The No. 7 overall pick of the 2015 draft, White has missed 28-of-32 games.

Speaking Tuesday, Bears QB Mike Glennon said it's "his year," and that the Bears are "his team."

He's tilting. Glennon admitted "surprise" at the Bears' trade up for Mitchell Trubisky, but has evidently pumped himself back up. Glennon is the favorite to be under center in Week 1, but the odds are high that Trubisky will make 2017 starts. That's the reality for any first-round quarterback, let alone a top-two pick. Glennon will have to be sensational to keep the wolves at bay.

The Bears will flip flop their guards this season, moving Josh Sitton to right guard with Kyle Long kicking to left guard.

The Bears have made a habit of toying with Long's position, previously trying him at right tackle before kicking him back to his natural right guard spot, and now moving him to the left. The reasons for the latest switch are unclear, but Long is believed to have lost a ton of weight while rehabbing multiple injuries. Sitton saw action at both left and right guard during his Packers tenure.

Bears signed second-round TE Adam Shaheen to a four-year contract.

That leaves first-round QB Mitchell Trubisky as Bears' only unsigned draft pick. Shaheen was a surprising selection at 45th overall after playing college ball at Division II Ashland. The 23-year-old is a giant at 6'7/278 but he faces a steep learning curve jumping from D2 to the pros.

Bears coach John Fox expects fourth-round RB Tarik Cohen to help out on third down.

"He's a joker back," Fox said. "I think third down, it's just another matchup, this game's about matchups." With great speed and video game moves, Cohen can present matchup problems on passing downs, but the Bears signed Benny Cunningham to fill the same role. Even if he beats out Cunningham for the third-down job, Cohen's fantasy upside is capped behind Jordan Howard.

Bears signed fourth-round S Eddie Jackson to a four-year contract.

The Bears traded up for Jackson at No. 112 and expect him to compete for defensive playing time right away. When healthy, Jackson was a ballhawk in Alabama's secondary, graduating as the Crimson Tide's all-time leader in interception-return yards (303). Like so many of Nick Saban's pupils, however, Jackson enters the pros with significant health concerns (leg, knee).

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson listed Markus Wheaton among the starters at wide receiver in his mid-May projection.

Chicago does not have much behind Cameron Meredith and Kevin White, and Wheaton was given $6 million guaranteed on a "two-year" contract. That said, Wheaton is still recovering from a shoulder injury and has been inconsistent throughout his career. After signing Dion Sims and drafting Adam Shaheen in the second round, the Bears could end up using a lot more two-tight-end sets.

Bears DC Vic Fangio said CB Kyle Fuller will be given a chance to compete.

Fuller missed all of 2016 with a knee injury, although Fangio suggested the corner could have returned late in the season had he wanted. The issue led to the Bears not picking up Fuller's fifth-year option, but Fangio is not ruling out him winning a job in camp. "It's wide open," Fangio said. "I hope to see Kyle healthy and out there running around. Moving like he's 100 percent." Despite the positive comments, the smarter money is on Fuller being cut or traded before the season.

Bears signed WR Titus Davis and waived WR Kermit Whitfield.

The older brother of Titans first-round pick Corey Davis, Titus was nearly as productive as his sibling at Central Michigan, but is more size (6'1/196) and athleticism deficient with 4.51 speed and a 32 1/2-inch vertical. Titus went undrafted in 2015 and has been bouncing around ever since.
May 14 - 3:04 PM

Bears DC Vic Fangio did not seem optimistic about ILB Danny Trevathan's (knee) chances of being ready for training camp.

"I think that's in question whether he'll be ready at that point," Fangio said. Considering he ruptured his patellar tendon in November, it is possible we do not see Trevathan at all during camp or the early part of the season. GM Ryan Pace has said Trevathan is a candidate to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Bears coach John Fox said Kevin White "looks very healthy."

"With the things that we’ve done, I’m hoping he can remain healthy," Fox added. "He’s a tireless worker, and I think he’s having a great offseason." The No. 7 overall pick in 2015, White has played in four games in two seasons and struggled mightily in those contests. With Alshon Jeffery now in Philadelphia, the Bears need White to stay healthy and play up to his draft slot this season.

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs thinks fourth-round S Eddie Jackson could push for snaps early.

Jackson fell to the fourth round because of injury concerns -- he tore his ACL as a sophomore and suffered a broken leg last season -- but he is a playmaker at a position the Bears could use some help. He should be given every opportunity to earn a role.
May 12 - 10:21 AM

Bears signed fourth-round RB Tarik Cohen and fifth-round OG Jordan Morgan.

A superstar in the FCS MEAC for North Carolina AT&T, Cohen enters the NFL at 5-foot-7, 179 pounds. He put silly moves on film, but will be making one of the toughest transitions for any player in the draft. In a best-case scenario, Cohen becomes a Sproles-ian back for Chicago.
May 11 - 6:16 PM

Bears signed OLB Dan Skuta, formerly of the Jaguars.

Released by the Jaguars last month, Skuta also visited the Patriots. The 31-year-old played for Bears DC Vic Fangio in San Francisco in 2013-14 and is being brought to Chicago to compete for a depth and special teams job.
May 8 - 12:55 PM

Bears signed DT Jaye Howard, formerly of the Chiefs, to a one-year contract.

Howard was cut by the Chiefs 12 days ago. He signed a "two-year, $12 million deal" in March 2016, but was limited to eight games by injury last season. Howard was fairly productive in 2015. He's a bounce-back flier for the Bears' undermanned defensive line.
