CHICAGO (CBS) — The Bears’ future cornerback and free agent On Wednesday, Jaylon Johnson hinted that he would prefer Justin Fields, the quarterback, to come back.
Speaking with Keyshawn Johnson on Fox Sports’ “All Facts with NO Breaks,” Jaylon Johnson said he can tell when Fields is confident and when he is not. Fields hasn’t had enough time to reach his full potential as a quarterback, according to Johnson.
“I don’t think it’s enough to just go in and say, ‘Oh, we’ll just get rid of him, he’s not the answer,'” stated Jaylon Johnson. “I believe it’s a case of taking the easy route and absolving the coaches of responsibility, as I believe they play a significant role in the quarterbacks’ development.”
There will be a lot of opinions expressed regarding what the Bears should be doing at quarterback between now and when a decision is made.
In the meantime, Jaylon Johnson declared earlier in the season that he had no intention of resetting the cornerback market.
But Johnson claimed he ought to be the highest paid corner in the league now that he is a second team All-Pro and a Pro Bowler.
Proposed northwest Indiana bill takes first step in push for potential Bears stadium relocation
EST WLS — CHICAGO, Ill. Northwest Indiana may be the newest site to be considered for a possible Chicago Bears stadium relocation if a new bill is approved.
Numerous casinos, miles of lakefront land, and thousands of Bears supporters who live close to Soldier Field, the team’s current home, can all be found in Northwest Indiana. In an effort to strengthen ties with a team like the Bears, Indiana State Representative Earl Harris Jr. has introduced a bill to establish a northwest Indiana sports commission.
“Why not move to Indiana? The economics show that everything there costs less.” stated Harris.
Though he knows it’s unlikely, the Bears have seriously considered it.
Then-Bears Chairman Michael McCaskey discussed the construction of Planet Park, a new stadium and entertainment complex in Gary, Indiana, in the mid-1990s. The team remained in Chicago, and in time, Soldier Field was rebuilt by the city.
Marc Ganis, a consultant in professional sports business, thinks history will repeat itself.
Ganis remarked, “It doesn’t make sense now, and it didn’t make sense then.” “The Bears have options, like Arlington Heights, at their disposal.”
According to Ganis, the most sensible location is the 326-acre Arlington Park racetrack site in the northwest suburbs. But he thinks the team is also thinking seriously about staying in Chicago.
Kevin Warren, the president of the Bears, stated last week that all options remain open.
Warren declared, “That stadium is a 40-year decision.” “We have to be extremely deliberate in our thought process and make sure we get that right.”
