Another day of practice at Chicago Bears training camp and another starting safety combination for the Bears’ defense.
After safeties Danny McCray and Ryan Mundy were the starting safety combination for the Bears during the past two days of practice, there was a new combination for Friday’s practice. Veteran safety Adrian Wilson was paired with McCray as part of the starting safety combination for the Bears during practice on Friday.
Wilson has been impressing Bears’ coaches during camp. Wilson, who has been elected to the Pro-Bowl five times during his NFL career, is trying to return after missing all of last season due to injury. If Wilson proves healthy, then that could be one of the biggest off-season acquisitions in the NFL.
Mundy, who was replaced by Wilson on Friday, was believed to be the most consistent performer for the Bears at the safety position during training camp. Mundy likely will be a part of the Bears’ starting safety combination this season.
Bears’ head coach Marc Trestman has insisted that there is no starting safety combination as of yet. Trestman has been working with different safety combinations this week during training camp and there may not be an indicator of the Bears’ starting safety combination until next Friday during the Bears’ first pre-season game.
