At tight end, Daniel Brown could push Zach Miller for job on Bears

At tight end, Daniel Brown could push Zach Miller for job on Bears

Even if the Bears put a greater emphasis on more two tight-end formations this season, and the investment of resources leads you to believe that shift is coming, they have too many of them to keep.

The only free agent that received more guaranteed money than quarterback Mike Glennon was Dion Sims, who signed an $18 million, three-year contract with $10 million guaranteed, ensuring he will be a big part of Dowell Loggains' offense. The Bears have big plans for second-round pick Adam Shaheen, who they believe can develop quickly while making the ascent from Division II.

They're quick to point out his measurables " 6-foot-6, 277 pounds with a 40-yard dash time of 4.79 seconds " are close to Rob Gronkowski's when the Patriots drafted him in the second round in 2010. Gronkowski, the best force in the NFL at his position since joining the league, measured 6-6, weight 264 and ran a 4.68-second 40 at his Arizona pro day.

Competition is what coaches seek and the Bears are set up for a battle after the top two when they report to training camp in Bourbonnais July 26. Veteran Zach Miller with youngsters Daniel Brown, Ben Braunecker and MyCole Pruitt will compete for one or perhaps two more spots on the 53-man roster.
