05:30 PM ET 05.19 | The Chicago Bears have signed their top pick from the 2013 NFL Draft, offensive lineman Kyle Long. Long, who played left tackle at Oregon, is expected to play guard for the Bears. He'll be part of a reworked offensive line that struggled last year. The team also signed free agent left tackle Jermon Bushrod. Long is the brother of Rams defensive end Chris Long and the son of NFL Hall of Famer Howie Long.

Agreed. As for work habits, I don't think this coaching staff will allow free rides and passengers on the team. They'll have to earn their keep. The Bears are THE team to watch this year .... even without Brian Urlacher. I'm just glad the Lovie Smith-Jerry Angelo era is over in Chicago.

Too bad he's been to rehab for drug and alcohol dependency. I hope he cleans up his act.

The Bears should fight it out with Detroit for last place in their division.
